Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo tore his ACL last NBA season, now many speculations linger about his return. CSNNE.com reports that Rondo may not be ready to play when the season starts:
“Shortly after Rondo’s injury, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge stated that Rondo would be back for the start of the season. While there hasn’t been a delay in his recovery, Rondo’s timetable looks more and more like he will miss all of the preseason as well as some regular-season games.”
With the loss of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, the Celtics will definitely need Rondo to help them in the upcoming season. Even though they will need more pieces to help the guard, a healthy Rondo is the cornerstone of the franchise going forward.
The Celtics organization said earlier this week that there’s no timetable for Rondo’s return.
