Doc Rivers was optimistic on Sunday learning after Rondo's MRI and CAT scan came back negative, saying, "Right now, we're going to go with, ‘They're all playing.'" More good news for Celtics fans: Rondo participated in Monday morning's shootaround, which is typically a good sign he'll try to give it a go in Game 4.
Fellow point guard Carlos Arroyo said that he thinks Rondo is ready. "He's a warrior," Arroyo said. "He demonstrated that last game. We were all surprised in the fact that he came back after that injury. I know he's ready. He wants to play. He wants to win."
Delonte West and Shaquille O'Neal were also practicing in the shootaround.
