The Boston Globe caught up with the struggling guard: “The story is that Rajon Rondo is dealing with a sprained ankle and plantar fasciitis that’s nagged at him all season, and the ailments are catching up with the point guard as his minutes pile up. ‘That’s what everybody keeps telling me,’ Rondo said yesterday… Rondo, however, said his recent struggles have nothing to do with injuries. ‘Everybody’s asked me, am I hurt?’ he said. ‘I’m fine. It’s an 82-game season. It’s long. Nothing is, I don’t think, too serious. We all have aches and pains, but I don’t think that it’s nothing that’s able to keep me out. I’m playing, I’m just not playing well.’”
