Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo wrote late last night on his blog that his ankle sprain sustained in the third quarter of last night’s Game 3 of the NBA Finals was a “different feeling than I’ve ever had” and that when he returned the game in the fourth quarter he was at about 50 percent. Here’s more from Rondo:
I’ve injured my ankle before but this one is unlike the others. The pain is on the inside of my foot. All the other ankle sprains have been on the outside. I will be getting a lot of treatment tonight, tomorrow, Thursday to try to get it ready to go for game 4. I did try to go again in the fourth quarter, but I really couldn’t make any hard cuts. No one is 100% at this point, but I was probably 50%.
We should find out more about Rondo’s ankle later this afternoon (around 4:30 p.m. ET). Keep it here for updates from Gary Dzen and Chris Forsberg in Los Angeles.
