Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo are in the Celtics starting lineup for their game against the Timberwolves, Doc Rivers said. Rondo returned Sunday after missing seven games with a sprained left ankle and played 34 minutes. Pierce landed awkwardly on his right ankle late in the game. "Everybody's good," Doc Rivers said. "I'm sure Rondo's sore today, but he said he felt pretty good."
Minnesota guard Jonny Flynn, who also has a sprained ankle, is expected to play for Minnesota. He's only played nine games this season after undergoing hip surgery.
