Rajon Rondo sees bright side

The season was over, and Rajon Rondo felt free to let his humor out.“We finished the season with 10 guys, so hopefully we can get five more guys,” he said when asked last night about Danny Ainge’s quest to find new players.Kidding aside, though, Rondo knows he will be part of that quest, provided he’s not the centerpiece in one of Ainge’s deals. He played just 30 games this season after coming back from ACL surgery, and even missed last night’s season-ending loss to Washington with a sore hamstring.

Will Rajon Rondo watch the playoffs

Will Rajon Rondo watch the playoffs "No"

The Celtics are out of the playoff picture for the second time in Rondo's career. The first time he missed the playoffs with the Celtics was in his rookie season. The year before the "Big 3" joined forces. I think Rondo should watch the playoffs. This is his job. I know his season is over, but why wouldn't you want to watch others in the playoffs. I would think it would burn a fire underneath Rondo. Maybe Rondo has his own ways to motivate himself. Celtics.com Re: If he will watch the playoffs:"No."

Wizards vs. Celtics final score: Washington leaps to the fifth seed with 118-102 win

Wizards vs. Celtics final score: Washington leaps to the fifth seed with 118-102 win

Wizards managed to weather an early second half storm by the Celtics, defeating them handily, 118-102. And with Brooklyn's loss, Washington leaped to the fifth seed and will face the Chicago Bulls in round 1. That was easy, right? After a brief scare from Boston early in the second half, Washington retook control of the game and handled their business. This was a Boston team without Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger, playing Joel Anthony extended minutes with Kelly Olynyk in foul trouble, and it showed. The Wizards' frontline of Trevor Booker, Nene, and Marcin Gortat threw their weight...

Pregame: Rondo among those out vs. Wizards

BOSTON -- Rajon Rondo is one of four Boston Celtics that will sit out the season finale against the Washington Wizards, leaving the team with only eight available bodies as it plays Game 82 at TD Garden. Rondo strained his left hamstring during Monday's loss in Philadelphia and will sit for the fourth time in six games. Rondo, who returned from ACL surgery in mid-January, appeared in 30 games overall for the Celtics this season. "He pulled his hamstring, or strained his hamstring, late third quarter of the Philly game," said Celtics coach Brad Stevens.

Who's your Boston Celtics MVP for the 2013-14 season?

Over at ESPN Boston they picked their MVP and Rookie Of The Year. The Rookie Of The Year is easy to pick. It's hands down Kelly Olynyk, even though Phil Pressey has been outstanding lately. Over at ESPN Boston, they picked Jared Sullinger as team MVP. Rajon Rondo is clearly the best player, but he's only played in 30 games this season for the Celtics. So is Sullinger the MVP? This is what Chris Forsberg said about Sully as team MVP. The poll has Sully at 75% as well. ESPN BostonLet's disqualify Rajon Rondo here. If he plays in Wednesday's season finale, he'll top out at 31 games played after...

Celtics finale all for fans

Rajon Rondo’s rookie-season memories are a tad remote — frosted over by all of the winning seasons that followed.But the Celtics captain knows he must have been here before, headed into a regular-season finale at home with no playoff games ahead.He remembers the mood seven seasons ago being a little less patient, though like tonight when the Celtics sign off for the year against Washington, the lottery also beckoned.

Ainge: "Rondo's going to have a great year next year"

In a conversation with the Globe's Gary Washburn, Danny Ainge talks about the bright future ahead for Rajon Rondo.There are lots of assumptions in Danny's latest comments about Rajon Rondo, his "best player": 1) that Rondo will be with the Celtics next season, 2) Rondo wants to stay with the Celtics, and 3) Ainge is talking so I'll take everything with a grain of salt. Here are his comments (read between the lines if you like): “I think Rondo’s going to have a great year next year,” Ainge said. “I think he’s going to have the best year of his career. Watching Rondo right now and...

Rajon Rondo could possibly miss Celtics final regular season game

We may have seen Rondo for the last time this season. There is only one game remaining, but Rondo seems slightly off after the shin injury. I would love to see Rondo one last time this season, before the C's head off for the summer. If he doesn't feel like giving it a go, then he needs to sit out. #Celtics Rajon Rondo says he doesnt know yet if hell play in the season finale on Wed. vs. #Wizards. #Celticstalk— A.

Rondo back in Celtics lineup

The depleted Boston Celtics will get one body back on Monday night in Philadelphia. Rajon Rondo, listed as a game-time decision, is back in the starting lineup against the 76ers after missing two games with a bruised left shin. Jared Sullinger (ankle), Kris Humphries (knee) and Jerryd Bayless (knee) are all out for Boston. Rondo's return gives Boston nine available players. Being shorthanded didn't stop the Celtics from winning their second straight game in Cleveland on Saturday.
