BOSTON -- Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo dislocated his left elbow in Saturday night's playoff game after crashing to the court in a tangle with Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade.

Rondo remained on the floor while the team doctor rushed out to attend to him. After a few minutes, Rondo was helped to his feet and walked off the court, with Dr. Brian McKeon immobilizing Rondo's left arm.

Rondo returned to the Celtics' bench at the end of the third quarter and got a standing ovation. The Celtics said his elbow was dislocated, but he returned for the start of the fourth quarter.

Wade was called for a foul.

The Heat entered the game with a 2-0 lead over Boston in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinals.

Rondo averaged 17 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds so far in the playoffs.
