Rajon Rondo Aims to Return Prior to All-Star Break

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.”

    Look at Rondo..taking his time coming back from an ACL injury….Shame on him

    I actually think if Rondo had it his way he would have already been playing however I’d say the team is delaying his return so they can rack up some more losses

    They have nothing to play for this season, but they do need to decide who they want to move forward with.
