Rondo misses 2nd straight game
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.
