Mavs monitoring Rondo’s Achilles

The Dallas Mavericks believe Rajon Rondo’s sore left Achilles won’t prevent him from playing at his normal high level on Friday against Denver.

“It’s bothered him a little bit from time to time, “ Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said.

On the other hand, Tyson Chandler said his sore left ankle is no cause for concern.

“Actually, I feel better than I thought,” Chandler said. “I feel banged up, clearly, but nothing to worry about.”
