Coach Brad Stevens said that next month Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo should return to game action, and pay per head sportsbooks can’t wait to see the player make it back as soon as possible.
Pay per head sportsbooks found out that on Friday, Rondo traveled with team physician Dr. Brian McKeon so he could meet operating surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who examined the player’s progress and gave him the green light to return to full-contact practice.
On Saturday, Boston had Rondo do a vigorous 45-minute session.
“[Rondo] had a good trip [Friday], as far as getting good news, and it looks like he’s on schedule to be closer, but still probably doesn’t look like we’re going to see him on the court any time this month,” said Stevens. “Hopefully as we get into January, he’ll be closer.”
In mid-February, Rondo underwent ACL surgery – about two weeks after initially tearing his ligament. Price per head services learned that recently, the player was able to engage in limited-contact practice, which included games of 1-on-1 and 2-on-2 with teammates, but he needed clearance by Andrews to return to 5-on-5, full-contact practice.
Stevens said that he hasn’t considered too much how he’ll reintegrate Rondo.
“I haven’t thought a ton about it, because it really hasn’t presented itself and it still isn’t going to present itself in the very, very near future,” said Stevens. “My focus is on what we can do on Monday [when the Timberwolves visit TD Garden]. Certainly, you’re thinking about how you’re going to, not only get him into it, [and] ease him into it, but how you’re going to manage everything around that. Because there’s a lot of good players that are playing at a high level, and the key is to continue those guys playing really well and add in another very good player.”
Pay per head sportsbooks saw that Stevens was hesitant in giving a definite timeline on when the player might return to the court.
“He won’t play in games, is what I’ve been told, until after the first of the year,” said Stevens.

“And that still is, we’re talking in big generalities there. I don’t know when that means. It could mean a month from now, it could mean six weeks from now. There’s a lot of different variables that have to be met for him to be cleared for games.”
