Celtics briefly send Rajon Rondo to D-League

Rajon Rondo ‘s Red Claws tenure lasted less than two hours.
The Celtics  assigned Rajon Rondo to their NBA Development League affiliate at 12:27 on Wednesday, and then recalled him at 2:20 p.m.
The All-Star point guard participated in a workout with the Red Claws in Boston and is still expected to make his return from ACL surgery on Friday against the Lakers.
“Rajon is progressing terrifically in his rehab and this is the next step,” Celtics  president Danny Ainge said in a statement.
The Celtics backcourt against the Raptors on Wednesday will be thin. They excused Keith Bogans indefinitely for personal reasons on Tuesday, and then reportedly traded Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks  a day later.
That leaves Avery Bradley  and the newly acquired Jerryd Bayless as the likely starters against Toronto, with rookie Phil Pressey as the lone true backup guard.
