Rajon_Rondo_Will_Not_Play_Back_to_Backs-Rest-of-the-Season
Boston Celtics’ Rajon Rondo will not be playing back-to-backs the rest of the season. Since the Celtics will be missing the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons, they are looking to keep him healthy and ready for next season.

Celtics president Danny Ainge, via CBS Boston:
“Based on where we are as a team and Rondo is his rehab, it’s probably safe to say he won’t play back-to-backs the rest of the year,” said Ainge. “We need him to play because we want him to get re-acclimated; there’s a mental process and mental hurdle to overcome when you come back from an ACL tear.”

“So it’s important for him to play some games, but at the same time we don’t want to wear him out or take any risks. We want him to have a full year of rehab and strengthening and not take any steps backwards,” he said. “We’re going to be careful with Rondo as we finish the year. It appears he’s gaining ground to being back to who he is, and we want to see him at 100 percent next season.”
