Rajon Rondo went down with an ACL not too far from a year ago.
As he's recovered from surgery there has been a lot of confusion, conflicting reports and speculation as to when he'll actually return to the court.
Danny Ainge cleared it all up this morning on Toucher and Rich.
Ainge on Rondo: "Barring any unforeseen setbacks. … Unless there are any setbacks today, we're anticipating him playing tomorrow."— Ben Rohrbach (@brohrbach) January 16, 2014
Ainge: "He just feels like it's time. I think there's going to be an adjustment for him on the court, but he has to start some time."— Ben Rohrbach (@brohrbach) January 16, 2014
Rondo will be on a 5-minute per quarter timeline.— Ben Rohrbach (@brohrbach) January 16, 2014
That's right guys! Rajon Rondo is back! On a limited basis!
What does this mean? It means the Celtics might start winning games again!
Or, if Rondo's just playing in short spurts, maybe we can have the best of both worlds. Our star player back on the court with actual exciting basketball plays happening, all the while not playing enough so as to help out those lottery odds.
