Would the Mavs need to be the high bidder to keep Rondo? “I don’t really want to even get into that,” said Rondo, who has never experienced a free agency, signing a contract extension with the Celtics before he hit the open market. “I just want to win playoff games right now. That will come. Free agency isn’t until July 1. Honestly, I haven’t lost any sleep this year about it. I don’t think about free agency at all. I just want to play better and win games here as a Maverick.” ESPN.com

Rondo is happy to be healthy, having been humbled by the extended time he missed when he suffered his serious knee injury. He just wants to stay healthy, contribute to making a playoff run and let the chips fall where they may. “Exactly,” Rondo said. “There’s only so much I can control. What’s for me is what’s for me. That’s how I look at it. I can control a little bit of it, but for the most part, what’s going to happen is what’s going to happen.” ESPN.com

Is there an NBA out in the contract for this summer? Petteri Koponen: There is one for this summer already. It was important for me that they showed they really wanted to keep me by offering this contract early and also giving me the possibility of going to the States if something interesting comes up.

While the timing of the Celtics' December trade that shipped point guard Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks took some observers by surprise, Rivers was not one of them. "I didn’t know [if Rondo was going to be part of Boston's future]," Rivers said when asked about the trade. "I think at the end of the day, it was more of a Rajon decision, in my opinion...it was more his decision than Danny’s and the Celtics' staff. Rivers continued: "I just think you get a feel for whether [Rondo] wanted to play it out [in Boston] or not, and when you're rebuilding you can't take that gamble of letting an asset out of the door and letting him become a free agent, especially in the rebuilding time. If you're a championship team you can take that gamble because you think he'll come back. If you're a rebuilding team you literally can not take the gamble of waiting to see and getting caught. I think in their case it was almost they had to [trade] him." Boston Globe

The shooting guard's streak of 237 consecutive games played probably will end Sunday at Indiana because of a right calf injury. Ellis was getting around with the help of crutches Saturday morning before the Mavericks departed San Antonio. He is listed as doubtful against the Pacers, but coach Rick Carlisle said it's a little more than that. "He's on crutches, which is never good," Carlisle said. "So he appears to be very doubtful. We don't think it's serious. But we are concerned." Dallas Morning News

"It certainly creates a challenge we haven't faced," Carlisle said. "We're talking about a guy who has played every game since he's been in a Maverick uniform, which is beyond commendable. And so it's going to be next man up. "We're going to have to make up for his loss collectively. You don't lose your best offensive player and have one guy who can step up and make the difference. The whole group's got to step forward. So we got our work cut out for us." Dallas Morning News

Ellis did not return to the game and left AT&T Center on crutches. As usual, he did not speak to media members. No further tests were scheduled, but an update is expected Saturday. “He was kicked or kneed in the right calf,” Carlisle said. “It’s very sore. But we don’t know the extent of it. We’ll see how he feels [Saturday] and go from there.” Dallas Morning News
