For The Guys

WALTHAM (AP) – Rajon Rondo’s elbow tested OK on Sunday, and Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers says his point guard will be a gametime decision for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against Miami.

Rondo dislocated his left elbow in Saturday night’s game, which Boston won 97-81. He had an MRI and CAT scan at New England Baptist Hospital on Sunday, which Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said came out negative.

Backup Delonte West has a bruised left shoulder, but Twiss said he was feeling better the day after the game and did not need tests.

Center Shaquille O’Neal also had some swelling after playing 8 1/2 minutes in the game. It was just his second appearance since Feb. 1 because of a right calf injury.

The Heat lead the best-of-seven series 2-1.
