Celtics G Rajon Rondo's rehab continues

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo has been dressing in team warm ups and taking jumpers with the club prior to games and during practice, but he is still a ways off from returning to play in games. Rondo continues to recover from season-ending ACL surgery, which is expected to sideline him until early next season.

Rondo told reporters – including Baxter Holmes and GaryWashburn of The Boston Globe – that he expects to resume running around June. He underwent surgery in the middle of February, and he notes that players are generally able to begin running four to six months following the procedure.

“Every ACL surgery they say you can start running in about 4-6 months [after surgery],” he said. “I think that’s when I’ll start running. That’s in the textbook of ACL rehab. I don’t know how long training camp is from my surgery. I get in between 6-12 months.”

When asked about Derrick Rose having yet to return a year after sustaining a similar injury, Rondo simply replied “everybody’s different.”

Whatever the case, Rondo admitted that it’s difficult watching teammates – especially veterans Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce – continue to play without him.
