There are multiple reports out ther about injuries re-shaping todays game. Here it is in a nutshell:
- Derrick Rose (back) is out today
- Jermaine O'Neal (shoulder) is out today and is day-to-day
- Brandon Bass (knee) is out at least a week, probably 10 days
- Keyon Dooling (hip) and Avery Bradley (shoulder) are active
I'm hoping Doc laid some smack down and informed the Celtics that losing to a Rose-less Bulls would re-open the "trade everyone" floodgates. And the anti-Rondo movement lately is in overdrive.. so let's hope John Lucas doesn't have a big game or else it will get exponentially worse.
Personally, I think you're all nuts if you think an All Star snub would derail this kid. After all he done… playing through elbow and wrist injuries and constantly sacrificing his body… I think the treatment he gets sometimes is overboard. He definitely deserves criticism, but for some reason with Rondo it's all-or-nothing.
It would be nice to see a good game out of him today to end this noise.
