Rondo dislocated his left elbow in last year’s second-round playoff series against the Heat. He appeared to injure the same arm early in Tuesday’s game, adjusting the sleeve he wears on it and seeking assistance from the Celtics’ trainer.
But he finished with seven points, 13 assists and six rebounds — one of them when he slapped a loose ball away from James to Mickael Pietrus for a 3-pointer.

Rivers said he didn’t know what was wrong with Rondo’s elbow — and didn’t want to know.
Bosh returned after missing the nine playoff games with a lower abdominal strain from the opener of the conference semifinals against Indiana. He had nine points and seven rebounds in 14-plus minutes but was not on the floor down the stretch when the Celtics came back to win 94-90.
Bosh said Wednesday that he is "99 percent" and that he did not ask to be held out in the fourth last night.
"I think he’ll be able to handle a bigger load of minutes," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "It’ll be based more on how he feels during the game."
