Rajon Rondo will not play against the Wizards on Wednesday, the second night of a back-to-back following a 93-86 loss to the Heat.

The Celtics cited “precautionary reasons” for holding out Rondo in just his fourth scheduled game since returning from ACL surgery.

Meanwhile, Jerryd Bayless (toe) and Avery Bradley (ankle) are also expected to miss Wednesday’s game, leaving only undrafted rookie point guard Phil Pressey and recently signed D-League guard Vander Blue as the only healthy members of the C’s backcourt against Wizards starters John Wall and Bradley Beal.

Wings Jeff Green, Gerald Wallace and Chris Johnson, who scored 11 points in his Celtics debut Tuesday, could also see minutes at the 2.

Keep in mind veteran guard Keith Bogans was granted leave from the team over a playing time dispute and remains on the roster for $5.1 million.
