Jared Sullinger Hopes Rajon Rondo is Back By December

The Boston Celtics front-office has said that they expect point guard Rajon Rondo to be ready by Opening Night. Teammate Jared Sullinger, on the other hand, simply hopes that Rondo will be on the court before the end of the year. Per Masslive: “Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has stated publicly — several times — that point guard Rajon Rondo wants to return from ACL surgery by training camp and play on opening night. Yet while speaking with WSYX Columbus on Friday, teammate Jared Sullinger shared a different timetable for Boston’s four-time All-Star. ‘He’s back working out again and hopefully he’ll be back by December,’ said Sullinger. [...] Rondo has bounced around during rehab, working out at the University of Louisville’s athletic facilities and in Florida with Dr. James Andrews, the famous surgeon who performed his surgery. The 27-year old was also spotted in Las Vegas and I’ve been told he’s spent some time at the Celtics training facilities in Waltham, where Sullinger has undergone a lot of his back rehabilitation. Ainge has said Rondo would like to return ‘before Adrian Peterson was back’ — referencing, of course, the Minnesota Vikings running back who returned from a torn ACL almost overnight (or: in less than nine months) to win the NFL MVP award.”

    no sh*t, he hopes he’s back. Rondo makes his life on the offensive end infinitely easier.

    If Rondo was MVP he’d be underrated
