Rondo to miss seventh straight game due to injury

CLEVELAND (AP) - Celtics All-Star guard Rajon Rondo will miss his seventh straight game with an injured right wrist.

Boston's Rajon Rondo carries the ball with his right hand while favoring his left arm during the second half of Boston's 97-81 win over the Miami Heat in Game 3 of their second-round NBA playoff series in Boston.

CLEVELAND (AP) - Celtics All-Star guard Rajon Rondo will miss his seventh straight game with an injured right wrist.

Boston coach Doc Rivers said at the team's morning shootaround that Rondo will not play Tuesday night against the Cavaliers but could return to the lineup later this week. Rondo is traveling with the team. Boston hosts Toronto on Wednesday.

The Celtics have gone 4-2 without Rondo, who hasn't played since Jan. 18, when he fell and sprained his wrist. Tests have shown no structural damage.

Rivers said center Jermaine O'Neal will play against Cleveland. He has been out for a week with a bruised left knee.
