Luke Walton said he thinks Rajon Rondo will play Thursday barring any setbacks. Rondo has missed 14 straight games. As for LeBron James, Walton said, "I haven't seen him do contact yet so you know I don't feel as confident. I know that you know how serious he is about his rehab so he is doing everything possible. We've talked. I know he is dying to get back on the basketball court but he also knows getting healthy is top priority. Whenever that day comes, he will be back out there but I would say right now I feel more confident about Rondo being ready for Thursday."
