Flu bug bites Rondo

WALTHAM – When the curtain lifted on the Celtics [1] practice sessions yesterday there was one player missing. Rajon Rondo [2] is the latest victim of the flu that has swept through the team recently. He took part in film session and a walkthrough and then the team sent him home.

Doc Rivers [3] said that he expects Rondo will play, but he added, “I don’€™t know how he’€™s going to feel.”

Rivers said he had been throwing up and was sent to the hospital for IV work.

Rondo is just the latest Celtic to become ill. Tony Allen [4] missed the last two games with the flu and Glen Davis [5] was also sick earlier in the week.

Allen, who will have a big hand in defending Dwyane Wade [6], said he is feeling better.

“I feel good today,” he said. “I was a little winded, but I expected that. Tomorrow should be a little better.”
