"He looks like himself," coach Brad Stevens said after the game. "He kind of looks like what I saw on film before I got here. I don't think he ever looked like that at any time last year. ... But he is back to full speed. And it's really good to see."

"I wasn't as explosive as I was in the past," Rondo said. "At certain points, I felt like I was skipping a beat. Other than that, it was fun being back out there. It was great to be back out there playing basketball again."

Rondo was shelved by a broken hand during the preseason, but he was able to come back and play 30 minutes in the opener Wednesday. He was one of eight Celtics to score in double digits in the win, including all five starters. The Celtics are set to face the Rockets Saturday.

Rondo was cleared for full-contact activities last week after suffering a fractured third left metacarpal late September. He appeared to have been a full participant in practice Monday. Coach Brad Stevens ruled him questionable for the game.

"I'm optimistic," said Rondo. "I'm going to get probably another X-ray today and we'll see how it goes in practice today. Just taking it one day at a time. I don't think Wednesday is realistic, but a lot of rest and more treatment, you never know."

Rajon Rondo ramping up contact work in Celtics practice


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Celtics guard Rajon Rondo could be cleared by the team's medical staff early next week, and coach Brad Stevens expressed optimism when discussing his point guard's potential availability Friday for the start of the season.

"Now it's just a matter of getting clearance, really," said Stevens. "Because everything else, from a skill standpoint, from an understanding standpoint -- he's been running our offense in 5-on-0, up and down the court, for 10 days now. And he picks it up pretty quickly anyways. And we spent some time watching film, whether it's of the team when he's not on the floor, or just simple stuff that he's been able to do in practice to just try to expedite being ready." 

Rondo is dealing with a fractured left metacarpal, and has already begun taking part in some contact activities, though not clear contact. He is wearing extra padding on the hand during practice, and there at least remains a chance Rondo will be in the lineup for the start of the regular season if he receives clearance.

"It's not my call, that's the way I look at it," Stevens said. "When [team trainer] Ed [Lacerte] tells me that someone is ready to play, that's the go-ahead to let them play."

Celtics G Rajon Rondo could be back for opening night


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Celtics guard Rajon Rondo could be available to return from hand surgery on opening night against Brooklyn on Oct. 29, according to the team's official website. Rondo appears to be ahead of schedule in his recovery from a fractured third left metacarpal. He had surgery late September and was expected to be sidelined 6-8 weeks. He's nearing his fourth week of rehab. 

"He's progressing great," coach Brad Stevens said. "Obviously, he won't do any contact before the end of the week but there's a chance that he'll be cleared to do some stuff by the end of the week."


Rajon Rondo's injury clouds his Fantasy value


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) With Rajon Rondo undergoing surgery on his hand, Fantasy owners have to drop the Celtics star on their draft boards. The question is, how far?

Rondo told reporters Monday at media day he hopes to miss just six weeks, but acknowledged that he has been given a 10-week diagnosis that likely serves as a worst-case scenario for his recovery. That represents the difference between missing around five games or up to 20 on the longer end.

At this point, Rondo is going 14th in CBSSports.com leagues on average, but that number is going to plummet in the coming weeks. He was already something of an injury risk in his first full year back from ACL surgery, and now he has to deal with this -- remember, Kevin Love basically lost his 2012-13 season with a broken hand that he tried to rush back from.

Rondo will still be a near-elite Fantasy option and a double-double machine when he plays, we're just not sure when that will be. Given the uncertainty, Rondo has to be knocked out of the top-10 for guards on Draft Day.
