Rajon Rondo Hints at a Return on Friday

Following the Boston Celtics’ 104-92 loss on Monday night to the Houston Rockets, Rajon Rondo posted a numerical message on Twitter indicating that his long-anticipated season debut could take place on Friday night against the visiting Los Angeles Lakers. 29,233,280 seconds (or 338 days, 8 hours and 23 minutes) is the time between the Feb. 13 reconstructive surgery on Rondo’s right knee to repair a torn ACL and the game on Friday. Per WEEI:

With the Celtics mired in a losing streak and spiraling down the standings, Rajon Rondo‘s return can’t come soon enough, and it doesn’t appear the All-Star point guard is all that far off from playing for the first time since his ACL injury.

“I get the impression it’sooner rather than later,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens told reporters prior to playing the Rockets.

While Stevens, Rondo and the Celtics are avoiding any strict timeline, the coach didn’t rule out a return this week. “I think you could say possibly,” he said.

    I’m nervous for Rondo man. Seems like everyone that returned from a last season injury got hurt again(Rose, Kobe,Westbrook). Also hasn’t been a good year for PGs (Paul, Bledsoe, Williams, Holiday, plus the 2 above)

    He should probably just retire.

    Hgahah… Oh, boy, Rondo retiring at 27 would be funny as hell.

    But he obviously wont. If I could choose a PG to go to war with me in the Playoffs, I’d choose Rondo without thinking twice.

    To be fair, he’s already thinking about coaching haha.

    He finally agreed to sign the tanking consent form.


    This is REALLY going to hurt the tanking effort…

    Westbrook’s surgery was more maintenance than re-injuring. It was to remove scar tissue.
