LOS ANGELES (AP) - Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo isn't
practicing because of a left ankle bone bruise.
Rondo says he'll continue to get treatment on the ankle, and he
expects to play in Game 4 on Thursday night.
Rondo says he rolled his ankle in Tuesday night's NBA finals
game against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Celtics lost the game
78-71, trimming their lead in the best-of-seven series to 2-1.
Rondo lasted just under 22 minutes in the game, scoring eight
points and dishing out four assists. Though he returned in the
fourth quarter, he says he was only 50 percent and the team was
better off with Eddie House and Sam Cassell.
