Throughout the offseason, there have been talks that Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo could miss the first month of the regular season, he could be back at some point in December, or he could be ready to suit up for opening night. Whatever the case, head coach Brad Stevens is not interested in prognostication, as he told Tom Layman of the Boston Herald that he’s yet to hear a return timeline from Rondo.“I have never heard a timeline from him and the latest that I’ve heard from our medical staff is that he’s progressing well,” Stevens said at TPC Boston during the Deutsche Bank pro-am on Thursday. “Our staff has spent a little bit of time with him off site here as well as we followed up on his rehab when he’s been away. He will be back in town soon. He’s working. I know that for a fact. He’s working hard to get back as soon as he can and I’m sure he will.”The Celtics continue to play it close to the vest regarding Rondo. Now without Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, Boston is clearly moving forward as a rebuilding franchise. As such, they have no reason to rush Rondo, who becomes hands down the best and most recognizable player on their team, back from his offseason knee surgery.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
