On Sunday, the Boston Celtics begin a four-game road trip against Kevin Durant and the Thunder in Oklahoma City. The Celtics enter the game 5-1 after an overtime win against the Bulls on Friday -- and with concerns over Rajon Rondo's feet. Doc Rivers announced afterward that the point guard likely has plantar fasciitis in his left foot.
"You could see he was good," Rivers said. "The only thing we did and you could tell: we subbed him early. I think with five or six minutes in the first we subbed him. And then we did it again at halftime. And overall that may have helped him with his wind."
Rondo is expected to try and play through it. After Oklahoma City, Boston travels to Dallas, Miami and Memphis.
The Thunder and Celtics split the seasons series last year. Boston has won six of seven overall against Oklahoma City.
