SALT LAKE CITY — Rajon Rondo is back in the Boston Celtics lineup, but Jared Sullinger and Avery Bradley are out against the Utah Jazz on Monday night.
Rondo has yet to have a dominant game since returning Jan. 17 after tearing a right knee ligament nearly a year earlier. The starting point guard rested against Sacramento on Saturday.
Sullinger sustained a concussion against the Los Angeles Lakers and then missed Saturday's game. He is sitting again as a precaution, and Kris Humphries is starting at center.
Bradley hurt his right ankle on Jan. 21 at Miami and reinjured it earlier this month. He hopes to play during Boston's five-game homestand that begins Wednesday. Gerald Wallace has been starting in his place.
The Jazz welcomed back starting center Derrick Favors, who missed last three games due to an aggravated right hip strain. The original injury was sustained last month.
