Health issues still a concern for Celtics
By A. Sherrod Blakely
WALTHAM — Even though the Boston Celtics aren't battling any major injuries, health concerns still loom for the C's.
Rajon Rondo left practice after watching film on Friday with flu-like symptoms, a similar bug that kept fellow Celtic Tony Allen sidelined for two games.
"Whatever Tony has, it's kind of spread around the team," said coach Doc Rivers.
Rivers doesn't believe Rondo's illness will keep him out of the lineup for Saturday night's Game One matchup with the Miami Heat.
Glen Davis has also been battling flu-like symptoms.
"[Davis] was sick the game [against Milwaukee], and he was really sick [Thursday] and now Rondo has it," said Rivers, who added, "they'll be ready for [Saturday]."
