Rajon Rondo Playing 3-on-3 Without Doctor’s Clearance

According to Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge, Rajon Rondo has been hooping without his doctor’s permission as he recovers from knee surgery. Per the Boston Herald: “It’s fairly typical for any player recovering from surgery to accelerate his own comeback, which is why Ainge was a little surprised to learn from the training staff this week that Rondo has been playing one-and-one before road games. The Celtics president of basketball operations stressed (Friday) that this doesn’t mean Rondo has been cleared for full contact or scrimmaging. That decision is in the hands of Rondo’s surgeon, Dr. James Andrews. ‘He played 3-on-3 three weeks ago when he wasn’t supposed to,’ said Ainge. ‘But I asked (the training staff) if it was OK for him to be playing one-on-one, and the answer was yes. Of course playing one-on-one is one thing. It doesn’t mean he’s ready to play to the NBA standard.’ Rondo said he hasn’t been able to schedule a trip to Pensacola, Fla., to meet with Andrews, though it may happen soon. ‘The travel schedule is too crazy this week,’ he said.”

    The whole hazing video at Kentucky. You don’t think its worth a post here, or did you somehow manage not to hear about it? lol

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    oh lol i totally forgot about that. the league even sent out an anti-hazing message after that video went viral. weird that SLAM hasn’t mentioned it.

    I didn’t realize that was while he was at Kentucky, I thought it was last year while he was a rookie. The video was pretty odd and disturbing though, you’d think more people would be talking about it.

    Don’t know how I feel about this. I’m sure most fans would want to seem them back on the court, but if there is a setback, this would just make it worse…

  • bike

    I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

  • what

    Does this count as “openly gay”?

  • danpowers

    too much? hm, my bad

  • danpowers

    nevermind, happens to the best of us

  • danpowers

    looks like innocent fun to me, i cant make out any sexuality in there, so uhm… guess no

  • what

    I don’t know. To me, it’s ironic that some of the most homoerotic behavior comes within certain “straight” realms like sports and fraternities.

    Athletes and frat boys are always the ones trying to come up with ways to make other dudes undress. “Ok I have a new house rule for beer pong. If you make the middle cup in beer pong then you have to take off your shirt.”

    Yeah they graduate cum laude all right.

  • danpowers

    lol i dont know much about that as i didnt go to college in the usa. sounds indeed ironic

  • what

    Well in England it was the same way. The Rugby social at my university was pretty darn (closeted) gay.

  • danpowers

    ill keep that in mind next time im watching a rugby match

  • what

    Yes. They’ve all had each others’ thumbs up their a****

  • Dfrance

    Sarcasm? Because trying to stick your fingers in another dude is anything but innocent fun where I come from.

  • Dfrance

    Was talking about this the other day in terms of some of the frathouse hazing. I just don’t know how, as a straight dude, one could participate in such things.

  • what
  • danpowers

    Can’t wait for Rondo to get back and get into game shape because I need to drop Raymond Felton from my fantasy team like ASAP
