Rajon Rondo Injury: Rondo Goes Down Hard, Leaves Game In Third

BOSTON - Rajon Rondo went down hard under the basket late in the third quarter after a flagrant foul on Linas Kleiza. Rondo, who appeared to fall on his right wrist, stayed in the game to shoot the two technical free throws but was replaced by E'Twaun Moore and headed back to the locker room soon after.

Rondo had a game-high 21 points and two assists in 28 minutes and was the Celtics' offensive spark plug. Rondo, who was 7-for-8 from the field, had an outstanding first quarter, scoring 13 points and leading Boston on a big run to take a 29-14 lead after 12 minutes of play. He scored only two points in the second quarter but had six in the third before the injury.

Boston currently leads Toronto, 7155, with 17 second remaining in the third quarter.

UPDATE: Rondo has a sore right wrist and may return, according to a team announcement.
