Rajon Rondo Back in Early 2014: NBA News at YouWager
Rajon Rondo should be suiting up as early as January 2014, according to Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens.
The point guard traveled Friday with team physician Dr. Brian McKeon to meet with operating surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who examined his progress and gave him permission to return to full-contact practice activities.
The team had Rondo prove himself on Saturday, engaging in a spirited 45-minute session even while coming off game action on Friday night.
The 27 year-old underwent ACL surgery in mid-February, about two weeks after initially tearing the ligament. Rondo’s been able to engage in limited-contact activities recently, including games of 1-on-1 and 2-on-2 with teammates, however he still needed Andrews’ clearance to dive back into 5-on-5, full-contact activities.
According to YouWager experts, the Celtics sit atop the Atlantic Division with an 11-14 record.
