After missing Thursday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets, Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo will play Saturday against the Toronto Raptors, coach Doc Rivers said.

Rondo sprained his right ankle Wednesday against the Utah Jazz.

"He looks fine," Rivers said. "He's good."

When asked if Rondo would get taken out of the game, Rivers indicating limping would be a concern.

"The eyes always tell you," Rivers said. "It's not brain surgery in that regard, especially with a guard. You can limp around as a big and still be effective because you're big, but guards are pretty easy."

In eight games this season, Rondo is averaging 14.3 points per game, 12.6 assists and 4.9 rebounds.
