Point guard Rajon Rondo will miss the Celtics' visit to Miami Wednesday and could also be out for Friday's game against Memphis.

Rondo, injured during the first quarter of a 105-94 win over Cleveland Friday, trained briefly Monday with his sprained right ankle taped. He continued to play in the game and finished with 10 assists, but sat out yesterday against the Magic.

Forward Glen Davis (right ankle sprain) attended practice, his lower right leg in a stabilizing boot. The second-year forward sprained his ankle as he was called for his fifth foul during Sunday's 86-79 loss to Orlando, a charge against the defending of Marcin Gortat 5:35 into the second half.

"We'll probably be down to 10 for probably this whole week," coach Doc Rivers said. "[Davis] and Rondo are out and will be out for probably the next couple games, maybe the next week.

"I actually made the comment [after Sunday's game] that Rondo would be ready for Wednesday, I think we were wrong."
