An NBA D-League Inspired Nightmare? Rajon Rondo Skips Minor League Rehab

Rehabbing Boston Celtics' star Rajon Rondo won't play in the NBA D-League after all prior to his return from injury, on account of a bad dream.

MarShon Brooks was a starring attraction at the annual NBA D-League Showcase this week. While on assignment from the Boston Celtics, the guard tallied 24 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists on January 7th. Then, he followed up such a performance with a 26 point effort on January 8th.

Needless to say, such success would lead any young athlete to sleep easy on the nights that followed.

But in anticipation of a potential D-League assignment of his own (on account of some possible rehab), NBA star Rajon Rondo (Brooks' Celtics teammate) says he had a bad dream. Thus, he won't be hitting the minor league hardwood after all. Take a look below.

Though the likes of the Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire and the Spurs' Kawhi Leonard both practiced with their NBA teams' D-League affiliates en route to respective returns from injury last season, Rondo was poised to become the highest profile player from The Association to actually play in an NBADL game.
