Boston Celtics do not have a return date in mind for Rajon Rondo

While the Boston Celtics feel that point guard Rajon Rondo is recovering well from his torn ACL, they don’t have a timetable as to when he’ll return.

Speaking to the Boston Herald, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said that Rondo is doing good and he’ll follow up with him on his rehab in the near future.

Per the Herald:

New Celtics head coach Brad Stevens has heard all the scenarios in the public conversation, but would not put a date or a timetable on when the lone member of the championship team will be back.

“I have never heard a timeline from him and the latest that I’ve heard from our medical staff is that he’s progressing well,” Stevens said at TPC Boston during the Deutsche Bank pro-am on Thursday. “Our staff has spent a little bit of time with him off site here as well as we followed up on his rehab when he’s been away.

“He will be back in town soon. He’s working. I know that for a fact. He’s working hard to get back as soon as he can and I’m sure he will.”

Rondo’s return date has been in question for some time. Some have hinted he’ll be ready by the season opener while teammates have suggested he might need until December.
