MIAMI — According to Rajon Rondo, no decision has been made as to whether he will play in Wednesday's game at Washington.

If he does, it would be his first back-to-back set of games since returning to the Celtics following a torn right ACL injury last January.

Rondo, who spends at least four hours a day getting various treatments for his body, said a decision on whether he'll play won't be made until sometime early Wednesday at the earliest.

He will talk with trainer Ed Lacerte and other team officials Wednesday morning and "see how it goes. I'll do my best to keep icing and take care of it."

On Tuesday, Rondo played nearly 26 minutes which was the most action he has had since returning to the Celtics lineup.

In Boston's 93-86 loss to Miami, Rondo had one point while missing all eight of his shots from the field.

When asked what he took away from the loss, Rondo said, "Nothing. The only thing is, I don't think I can play any worse than that."

And as Rondo noted, the Celtics do play Washington on Wednesday so he won't have an opportunity to marinate on his poor performance against the Heat.

"It's the NBA. We got a game (on Wednesday)," said Rondo, who quickly noted that he doesn't "know if I'm playing. I don't have to think about this game for very long."
