The Celtics are taking every precaution with the left hamstring of Rajon Rondo and have ruled him out of tonight’s game against New Jersey at TD Garden. He likely will miss Friday’s contest against Toronto as well, coach Doc Rivers said before Wednesday’s game.

‘€œI don’€™t think it’€™s a bad hamstring, but you just have to be careful with it,’€ said Rivers, who added Rondo is “iffy” against the Raptors on Friday night.

Nate Robinson makes his third straight start in Rondo’s absence.

Rivers said Rondo, who will miss his third straight game, was leading the NBA in assists, dishing out 14.3 per game. The Celtics are 1-1 in the two games without him, losing at Toronto on Sunday before a big win on Monday in Atlanta.
