Rajon Rondo Says Recovering Knee is ‘Around 87%’

by October 24, 2013

Depending on how his day is going, Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo says his surgically-repaired knee feels about 87% right. Rondo, however, still won’t set a timetable for his return to the court. Per the Boston Herald: “I’m getting fitted for my first brace, and I don’t think contact will be too far from there,’ the Celtics point guard said. ‘I just have to get cleared by my doctors. I know it’s getting stronger each week. When I’m able to jump off my right leg and dunk, that’s probably when I’ll be ready to play. Feeling great, working out every day. I’m doing more as far as compound workouts. I’m doing one workout a day, so I’m doing more as far as working on my leg. It’s getting better each day.’ Rondo reiterated that when he comes back, he doesn’t want restrictions — on his minutes or otherwise. ‘No. If they want me to ease into it, OK. But I want to get back out there and go full speed. I don’t want any limitations,’ he said. ‘I’ll know when it’s right. Everybody is different. Lot of people have ACL injuries. But I won’t come back until I know I’m myself again.'”
