Rajon Rondo to talk with Danny Ainge about failing to accompany team to Sacramento

Celtics guard Rajon Rondo was not scheduled to play in Saturday’s game against the Kings in Sacramento — the second night of a back-to-back that started with a game against the Lakers — but he apparently did not have the team’s permission to stay in Los Angeles rather than accompany the team on its flight north.

The Boston Herald’s Steve Bulpett reported that Rondo stayed in Los Angeles to celebrate his 28th birthday with family, and that he might have assumed he didn’t need to fly with the team as he had been left home rather than make a trip to Milwaukee for a Feb. 10 game that was the second of a back-to-back.

Rondo implied that the matter was settled, telling the Herald: “We already talked about it. There’s nothing to talk about.”

However, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge did not sound as convinced.

“I plan on talking to Rondo when he gets back into town,” Ainge told the Herald. “I’ll find out more about what went into it, and then we’ll handle it internally. We handle all of those kind of issues internally.”
