Rajon Rondo injury: Celtics star guard rolls right ankle during game against Jazz

UPDATE: Rondo returned to the Celtics' bench within the last minute of play in the third quarter. Official word for the Boston PR staff is that Rondo rolled his right ankle.

BOSTON - Boston Celtics star point guard Rajon Rondo appeared to suffer a left foot injury late in the third quarter during his team's game against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night at TD Garden.

Rondo limped to the sidelines after he suffered a non-contact injury and walked to the Celtics bench unassisted, where he was attended to by Celtics trainer Ed Lacerte. One minute later, Rondo was accompanied to the locker room by Lacerte.

Before leaving the game, Rondo extended his streak of double-digit assists to 32 straight games. He now only trails John Stockton and Magic Johnson (who had an NBA record 44 consecutive games with double-digit assists). Rondo scored six points and had 10 assists and three rebounds in 25 minutes before departing.

Boston currently leads Utah, 68-65, with 2:00 left in the third quarter.
