When the Boston Celtics opened up practice Monday morning, they had an old friend participating – Rajon Rondo.
The former Kentucky Wildcat point guard apparently was medically cleared to practice, which likely means he’ll be able to return to game action whenever he so chooses:
Gary Washburn, who tweeted the above blurb, later said Rondo was able to get in some practice today.
Of course, as Rondo returns from an ACL injury, the team will take it very light on the All-Star and he’ll slowly be worked back into game shape, though as evidenced by the foot race we saw between him and MarShon Brooks the other day, Rondo looks ready to go.
There’s still no official return date in regards to the point guard. It’s likely the team will handle it much like the Los Angeles Lakers have handled Kobe Bryant‘s return, allowing the player to decide when they’re ready and comfortable.
Regardless, it sounds like we should be seeing Rondo on the court in the relatively near future.
