Rajon Rondo Injury Update: Celtics Guard Game-Time Decision Against Knicks

After participating in a Friday morning shoot-around, Rajon Rondo is considered a game-time decision against the New York Knicks Friday night at the TD Garden, the team announced.

Even recently, Rondo noted that he had not yet dribbled a basketball since injuring his wrist in a fall on Jan. 18 against the Toronto Raptors. But he returned to the court for Friday morning's shoot-around, looking "the most active we've seen him since the injury," according to CSNNE's A. Sherrod Blakely.

Rondo has missed the last eight games with a sprained right wrist. The Celtics are 6-2 in his absence, rising above .500 at 11-10 for the first time since they were 4-3. Young guards Avery Bradley and E'Twaun Moore have garnered valuable experience during Rondo's lengthy absence, but the Celtics could use the return of their All-Star guard.
