Celtics deny Rajon Rondo trade demand rumors


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) Celtics president Rich Gotham told reporters that point guard Rajon Rondo has not requested a trade, per the Boston Globe on Saturday. He was disputing a report from earlier in the week that Rondo “wanted out” of Boston.

"You know if he has made that demand, it hasn't been directly to the Celtics," Gotham said.

Rondo is entering the final year of his deal of his contract and is expected to be fully healthy heading into the start of the 2014-15 season. He was limited to only 30 games last season because of his recovery from a torn ACL. He averaged 11.7 points, 9.8 assists and 1.3 rebounds while shooting 62.7 percent from the field and 28.9 percent from downtown over that span.


Celtics deny Rajon Rondo trade rumors

(5/17/2014) According to the Boston Herald, Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo "may be available now than ever before." However, president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has denied any trade rumors regarding their star point guard.

"That's all speculation," Ainge said. "Those aren't facts. People don’t know that, so it's just people speculating on Rondo's free agency next summer. That's all that you're hearing. You're not hearing any facts from anybody. Those conversations haven't even been discussed, so that's just speculation."

Sullinger, Bayless and Humphries ended up missing the final three games of the season due to his injury, while Rondo sat out three of the final four.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Celtics guard Rajon Rondo played with nine stitches in his forehead for much of the second half of Wednesday's game against the Raptors, eventually falling short in a 99-90 loss.

Rondo played with a bandage covering the nine stitches, which he needed after taking an elbow to the forehead. He still managed to log 32 minutes in the game, finishing with nine points on 3 of 9 shooting, while adding 15 assists and only one turnover. He also chipped in four rebounds and a pair of steals in the loss.

Rondo still isn't playing on both halves of back-to-back sets and won't for the rest of the season, but is otherwise recovered from knee surgery. He is averaging 11.4 points and 9.5 assists per game in 24 appearances.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) Celtics guard Rajon Rondo played well Wednesday against the Heat, nearly recording a triple-double in his return from missing Monday's game in order to rest.   

Rondo fell just a point shy of the triple-double in 39 minutes, while shooting 4 for 8 from the field. He added 10 rebounds and 15 assists, while turning the ball over four times in the 101-96 win.

Rondo has failed to reach double figures in scoring in any of his last four games, but is still averaging 7.3 rebounds and 10.5 assists per game in that span. He is averaging 11.4 points, 9.1 assists and 5.2 rebounds per game since returning from knee surgery.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) Celtics guard Rajon Rondo is back in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Heat, after sitting out the team's previous game.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Celtics guard Rajon Rondo has still not been cleared to play in back-to-back sets as part of his ongoing return from ACL surgery, so he will not play Wednesday against the Knicks. 

Rondo carried a heavy load in the team's game against the Pacers Tuesday, playing 41 minutes in the 94-83 loss, so his absence is just considered a continued precaution at this point. 

Rondo has played in 19 games since returning from the injury, averaging 11.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 8.7 assists in 31.4 minutes per game. 


Rajon Rondo not quite ready for back-to-backs


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) An 18-assist, zero-turnover outing Sunday against Detroit would indicate that Rajon Rondo has made great progress in his return from knee surgery. But Monday the Boston Herald reported that Rondo is still harboring some reservations when it came to pushing his surgically repaired knee. 

Rondo will play in his seventh-straight game Tuesday against Indiana but will rest Wednesday when the Celtics take on the Knicks. 

“If I was ready I would play,” Rondo said. “It’s a combination of things that bother me in the lower part of my body. My calves, my Achilles and then my knee. They affect me after games, and then I need the rest.”

Rondo has seen his minutes increase lately, averaging 35.3 per game over the last two weeks. He's also passed out 11.0 assists per game over that span.
