With Rajon Rondo back, the C's look for a win Wednesday night.

The Boston Celtics welcome Rajon Rondo back from his two-game suspension Wednesday night when they host the Minnesota Timberwolves at 7:30 p.m. ET.

The Celtics enter action with a 9-8 record. They are coming off a 91-88 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday.

The Timberwolves are 8-8 and are riding a two-game winning streak. Minnesota picked up wins over the Philadelphia 76ers and the Milwaukee Bucks.

Having Rondo back will be a nice boost for the Celtics. Rondo is averaging 13 points and 13 assists per game this season.

The Timberwolves are led by All-Star forward Kevin Love. For the fourth consecutive season, Love is averaging a double-double, with 19 points and 15 rebounds per game. Nikola Pekovic is the team's second-leading scorer, averaging 14 points per game.

The game will be shown on CSN New England.
