In keeping with his promise, Rajon Rondo is starting to put deadlines on his season debut. The star point guard is aiming to rejoin the Boston Celtics before to the All-Star break. Per the Boston Globe:

The Celtics’ final game before the break is Feb. 12 against the San Antonio Spurs at TD Garden.

Rondo made his comments before the Celtics held a morning shootaround at the Four Seasons Hotel here. They are in the Bay area to play the Golden State Warriors Friday night in Oakland, the fourth game on a five-game road trip.

“It may be this month, next month. It’ll be before All-Star Break,” Rondo said.

Rondo suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee a year ago. He had surgery in February 2013, performed by Dr. James Andrews, and has been rehabbing since. [...] “I haven’t had any swelling,” he said. “I’m wearing my brace. At times when I play, it doesn’t feel like I have it on. No setbacks. It’s just, I’m taking my time.”
