The Celtics have lost five of their last six and it won't get much easier against the Mavericks on Monday night in Dallas.
They already knew they would be without forward Brandon Bass, who is dealing with a knee injury and not expected to return before the All-Star break. Earlier on Monday, the Celtics learned that Rajon Rondo will miss the next two games for an NBA suspension following his actions in Sunday's game against the Pistons when he threw the ball at referee Sean Wright. They will also be missing Kevin Garnett who is away from the team and dealing with a family issue.
Avery Bradley and Chris Wilcox will replace Rondo and Garnett in the starting lineup and rookie JaJuan Johnson has been getting some of Bass' minutes off the bench. Garnett could rejoin the team in time for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

FORT MYERS -- Bobby Valentine finally got his chance to see Carl Crawford in person Monday and he liked what he saw. The Red Sox manager watched as Crawford, healing from offseason surgery on his left wrist, ran in the outfield and threw the ball. He has not been cleared to swing a bat.
"It was what I hoped for," Valentine told WEEI.com. "He was as excited about being here and talking to me as I was. I think that's why I feel so good. It was therapeutic."
Valentine didn't visit Crawford in person in the offseason but spoke with his agent, Brian Peters.
"I was surprised," Valentine said. "I didn't know he was there. I walked around the corner and there he was throwing the ball. It was great to see him. His health looks much better than I expected. I was pleasantly surprised."
Valentine said he's not concerned at all about any hard feelings from Crawford after Valentine...
Former Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield, who retired on Friday, joined The Big Show on Monday to discuss his career and his future.
"It's hard to imagine that today's the first day for pitchers and catchers to be in camp," Wakefield said. "Today's a tough day for me, not being there and knowing that I'm not going to be there. It's just something I have to adapt to now."
If Wakefield were to have returned for an 18th season with the Red Sox, it likely would not have been one in which he was guaranteed a spot in the starting rotation. In making his decision, Wakefield admitted he entertained the idea of having a greatly diminished role.
"I actually was. I was definitely entertaining the idea," he said. "The Red Sox were very cordial in keeping me in the loop with everything that was going on. I just wanted to play another year, obviously, and it didn't matter if I was a No. 5 starter or a 6 or 7 starter. I...
Rajon Rondo has been suspended for two games without pay by the NBA following his actions in the third quarter of the Celtics' game with the Pistons on Sunday night.

Rondo's suspension will begin Monday night when the Celtics play the Mavericks and will also include Wednesday's game against Oklahoma City. He'll be eligible to return on Feb. 28 when the Celtics play at Cleveland following the All-Star break.
