Marc Spears is reporting in the Globe that Rondo will definitely be out tonight versus the Portland Trail Blazers. With both a hamstring injury and a back injury this is the wisest course of action.
Doc has hinted that Gabe Pruitt may get some playing time tonight and that too seems a good thing. House and TA are not point guards and Gabe Pruitt is. He has talent and it would be a good thing to get him some minutes early as they may need him later.
