A crazy day on the Celtics landscape will conclude with a game tonight against the first place Raptors. Few pre-game notes, most notably on Rajon Rondo (who hopefully enjoyed his two hour stay with the Maine Red Claws). While Rondo will not play tonight, he may be in uniform for the first time since undergoing surgery last February (via Baxter Holmes).
Stevens said Rondo's workout went well & that Rondo might suit up but wouldn't play tonight. All signs point toward Rondo debuting Friday.

While the return of Rondo is imminent, the return of Keith Bogans is not. Bogans is away from the team on personal reasons, which is apparently not a family issue (via Mark Murphy).
Source - Bogans' absence not family-related. He is taking time to sort things out, like place with Celtics. He is getting paid whole time.

So with Bogans MIA and Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks heading to Golden State, the Cs are down to just ten healthy players. As for the vacant point guard spot, Phil Pressey will get his first career start tonight before Rondo comes back to claim the job on Friday.
