MIAMI -- As expected, Rajon Rondo will play in Game 5 despite a painful dislocated left elbow. Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he will keep a close watch on Rondo. "In some way I think he’s in more pain than he was going into Game 4, but I think he at least has an idea on how to deal with it more," Rivers said. "We’re hoping that he can give us something and if he can’t then we’ll have to make a decision on the floor." 

Rajon Rondo will start for the Celtics in Game 4 of their playoff series against the Heat. How much he can give the team after suffering a dislocated left elbow in Game 3 is still an open question. "As long as you keep playing, everyone’s going to get hit at some point in the game," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "I think it would be obvious for all of us if he just can’t play. I think we’ll all know that."
