Doc: Rondo for Game 4 a 'major concern'

Doc Rivers met with the media following the Celtics' 97-81 win over the Heat in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series. Rivers was asked about Rajon Rondo, who appeared to be dragged down by Dwyane Wade in the third quarter and reportedly dislocated his left elbow. Rondo returned in the fourth quarter and played a key role down the stretch for the Celtics, who now trail the best-of-seven series 2-1.

"I still haven't seen it, I heard that I don't want to see it and don't plan on seeing it," said Rivers of the Rondo injury. "Probably it helped me, honestly, that I didn't see it, because if I had from what I hear from our guys it would have been tough to put him back in the game."

Rivers was asked about the possibility that Rondo may not be able to play in Monday's Game 4.

"It's a major concern," said Rivers. "You can play a lot on adrenaline, we've seen people do it all the time, but...

Top prospect Iglesias heading to Boston

With their middle infield depth depleted by injuries to both big league middle infielder Marco Scutaro and versatile Pawtucket infielder/outfielder Yamaico Navarro, the Red Sox are bringing prospect Jose Iglesias to Boston from Scranton, where he played for Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday, going 3-for-4. According to an industry source, the Sox will make a decision about whether to add Iglesias to their big league roster on Sunday, following an evaluation of Scutaro.

Scutaro is dealing with an injury to his left side, and told WEEI.com after Saturday's game that he was to be examined on Sunday. Navarro, meanwhile, was placed on the disabled list by Pawtucket on Saturday due to an oblique strain incurred on Tuesday.

And so, it is apparently Iglesias -- the consensus top prospect in the Red Sox system -- who...

Superhuman: Rondo leads C's to Game 3 win

Inspired by the return of injured Rajon Rondo from a dislocated left elbow, the Celtics overpowered the Heat in the second half and ran away with a 97-81 win in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series at TD Garden. Kevin Garnett scored 28 and a fired-up Paul Pierce nailed 5-of-7 3-point attemps and finished with 27 as the Celtics cut Miami's lead to 2-1 in the best-of-7 series. 

In the first quarter, it was Pierce providing the inspiration as he scored 12 of his team's 27 points as the Celtics raced out to a 27-21 lead after one. But the Heat took advantage of a 9-4 personal foul disparity in the first half to get back in the game. Miami outscored Boston, 25-17, to take a 46-44 halftime lead. 

Pierce and Garnett led the Celtics during a 16-4 run in the first five minutes as they took a 60-50 lead. Then, with 7:02 left in the third, Rondo appeared to be pushed to the floor by Dwyane Wade, who then fell on him during a...

Rondo returns after dislocated left elbow

Rajon Rondo dislocated his left elbow in a collision with Dwayne Wade midway through the third quarter. He returned to start the fourth quarter of Game 3 Saturday night against the Heat after Celtics medical staff popped it back in place.

He was holding his left arm and had to be helped to the locker room by team medical staff with just over seven minutes left in the third quarter. Rondo appeared to fall awkwardly on his left elbow on a foul by Wade with 7:02 left in the quarter. Wade appeared to push Rondo to the floor after Rondo collected a loose ball rebound. 

Moments later, Wade pushed Ray Allen under the Celtics basket and the two came face-to-face before tempers cooled.

BC's Jackson to stay in NBA draft

Boston College junior guard Reggie Jackson announced Saturday that he would remain in the NBA draft, forfeiting his final year of college eligibility. Non-seniors who have not hired an agent can pull out of the draft before Sunday.

"I just want to thank BC, the coaching staff and administration for all their help and support throughout my three years here, but I have decided to stay in the draft and forego my senior season," he said in a statement. "The NBA has always been a dream of mine and it is one I wish to pursue. I am truly blessed to have attended and played for such a prestigious university. I would like to say thank you to all the BC fans for all the support and, though I have decided to leave school early, I will always be a BC Eagle."

Jackson averaged 18.2 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists in his final season at BC. In his college career, he scored 1,254 points in 99 games.
