Rajon Rondo hopes to return before All Star break
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Rajon Rondo says he hopes to make his season debut before the All-Star break. Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens says he has never spoken to Rondo or anybody in the organization about a specific return date.
This much is clear: Rondo's return is inching closer.
Rondo, who has been out since tearing a ligament in his right knee last January, told reporters at the team's morning shootaround Friday in San Francisco that he hopes to make his season debut before the break. He declined to give a specific date. Boston's last game before the break is Feb. 12.
Stevens said before the Celtics played at Golden State on Friday night that the decision for Rondo to return will be made by team doctors and the point guard.
