The Celtics have some good news and bad news following Monday's 103-99 loss to Golden State on the injury front.

The bad news: Glen Davis left the arena on crutches and told reporters he has a sprained right ankle. He was wearing a protective boot and said he couldn't walk without aid. He could be out for an extended period. He didn't sound positive. X-rays were negative.

Davis sprained the ankle in an ugly collision with Golden State's rugged Ronny Turiaf, during which Davis was called for the offensive foul. Turiaf landed awkwardly and fell on Davis's ankle.

"I sprained the ankle before [as in last season], so hopefully I'll be back soon," he said. "I can't walk. If I can't walk, I can't run."

The good news: Rajon Rondo tweaked his left hamstring but said it won't cause him to miss any time. Rondo said he was hurting in the fourth quarter but still managed to drop 30 points with 15 assists and 3 steals.
