Celtics injury updates

WALTHAM -- After making his return on Friday night, you can cross Rajon Rondo off the Boston Celtics injury list. As for the others still on it, heres the rundown following practice on Saturday.

Jermaine ONeal missed practice and underwent an MRI on his right knee at New England Baptist Hospital on Saturday. No results yet and he will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies following the teams morning walkthrough.

Marquis Daniels (right ankle sprain) did not participate in practice on Saturday and is doubtful for Sunday.

There is no timetable set for Keyon Dooling to return from a right hip-pointer injury. Keyon is close but he just cant break through, said Doc Rivers. We thought hed be back a couple games ago and he did some stuff, got sore again, so we just dont know.

Following Fridays game against the New York Knicks, Paul Pierce said he suffered a strained hip. He participated in practice on Saturday and his soreness was a surprise to Rivers. Well I didnt know that so Im assuming that hes ok, said Rivers. I would say everybody is hurting somewhere with the amount of games.
