Our friend Jeff Garcia from Project Spurs is in New York covering Team USA, and he passes along word that Rajon Rondo missed practice today because of a death in his family.
Sherrod Blakely tweets that Rondo's uncle passed away, and he'll return to the team tonight.
The photo comes from a Chris Forsberg piece which includes Doc Rivers encouraging Rajon to play for Team USA, even though he played a lot of games last season. Check it out.. good stuff.
Our thoughts are with Rondo and his family.
