Celtics PG Rondo misses 2nd straight game

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers says point guard Rajon Rondo will miss Sunday's game against the Washington Wizards with a sprained right wrist.

It is the second straight game Rondo has missed with the injury, which happened when he fell hard while being fouled in the third quarter of Wednesday night's 96-73 win over Toronto that snapped a five-game losing streak.

Rivers said Rondo is close to returning.

Rondo is averaging 15 points, 9.4 assists and 5.1 rebounds this season.
