Brad Stevens: “Possibility” Rajon Rondo Returns For Season Opener

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo injured his left hand when he slipped in the shower and was initially put on a six-to-eight week return timetable. After the latest evaluation, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens isn’t ruling out a return for Rondo in Boston’s season opener, per Jay King of

I think it’s a possibility. He won’t do any contact before the end of the week, but there’s a chance he could be cleared to do some stuff by the end of the week.

From Rondo:

It’s still pretty early for it to be healed all the way, obviously. It’s been three weeks and some change. So, still got a couple more days to go.

King reports that Rondo’s CT scan showed the broken left hand is “progressing great”.

Rondo is still the Celtics’ leader and best player. Boston is loaded with guard play — Avery Bradley, Phil Pressey, newly acquired Evan Turner, and draftees Marcus Smart and James Young. The experimental versatility can be made more interesting for Brad Stevens if he does have a healthy Rondo this season, assuming Danny Ainge won’t be looking to indulge around the trade deadline.
