BOSTON (AP) -Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo sprained his right ankle in the first quarter of Boston's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers and left the game.
Celtics officials said Friday night Rondo had a slight sprain and would return.
The game against Cleveland matched the two top teams in the Eastern Conference and could determine who has home-court advantage in the playoffs. Last year, the Celtics used the home-court to eliminate Cleveland from the conference semifinals in seven games en route to their 17th NBA title.
