Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo won’t be sure until game time whether he’ll be able to play in the season opener on Wednesday night against the Brooklyn Nets.

Rondo, who has a broken hand, said he’ll know when he wakes up from a pre game nap whether he’ll be good to go. He has been elusive leading up to the opener about the condition of his hand. Rondo underwent surgery five weeks ago to fix a fractured metacarpal bone that was injured during a fall in a shower.
