Rajon Rondo in Celtics Lineup for Second Straight Night As C’s Take on Timberwolves


On Sunday evening in Toronto, the Celtics got their first taste of life with Rajon Rondo back in the fold, returning from a severely sprained ankle. Now they'll hope that his second game back is better than the first, as the C's take on the Minnesota Timberwolves at home Monday night.

Rondo was solid in his first game back for the Celtics, helping their pace and their ball movement in his return, but the numbers were still lacking. Rondo finished with a season-low four points and a relatively paltry eight assists.

Rondo isn't the only Celtic recovered from a sprained ankle — Paul Pierce sustained one as well toward the end of the Celtics' win over the Raptors. Pierce should be good to go Monday, though.

Here's the complete lineup card for C's-Wolves:

Rajon Rondo, PG
Ray Allen, SG
Paul Pierce, SF
Glen Davis, PF
Shaquille O'Neal, C

Luke Ridnour, PG
Wesley Johnson, SG
Michael Beasley, SF
Kevin Love, PF
Darko Milicic, C
