Rajon Rondo has not had a setback in his recovery from a torn ACL, but it is looking more and more likely that the All-Star guard will miss all of the Boston Celtics' preseason games as well as the start of the regular season, according to a report.
Rondo was in Boston last week and did on court work with Brad Stevens.
"He's obviously limited in what he can do on the court," Stevens said. "But he's a worker. That was one thing that was very noticeable."
Stevens added there is no timetable for Rondo's return.
Danny Ainge has consistently stated he expects Rondo to return sometime in the upcoming season.

The Boston Globe snuck in this tidbit at the end of one of their columns this weekend:
Rajon Rondo has rehabilitated quietly from his torn right anterior cruciate ligament but could make headlines off the court by potentially changing shoe companies from Nike to Anta the Chinese company that nabbed former Celtic Kevin Garnett a few years ago.

To be clear, there’s still no timetable for the return of Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo. However, the news of late hasn’t been good. That includes A.

Once again, the Celtics will enter a season with health-related concerns. This time, though, those concerns do not come with the same lofty payoff if everything goes right.
Instead of wondering if Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and the other veterans can stay healthy for a possible title run, the Celtics could be waiting to see how Rajon Rondo‘s surgically repaired right knee holds...

Great message from Brad Stevens to the kids (adults could heed his advice as well):
"You can never go wrong by doing right. You can never go wrong by treating somebody well. You can never go wrong by being a good person."
Imagine having a 3 year contract for $300,000 in 1978 from the Celtics. Imagine being at their summer camp in August and then just disappearing. It sounds like a weird dream or a tale based on the Bermuda Triangle (or something involving a guy from WTHHT). But it's totally real and totally happened to Joe Pace.
To quote the famous Bob Ryan "they said he had possessed...
Few players’ values are as invariably overstated or understated as Avery Bradley‘s.

This week in What the Hell Happened to, we remember back to the 60s and the Celtics and their reserve guard, Johnny McCarthy.
After a standout career at Canisius College (in upstate NY) John was drafted by the Rochester Royals in the 1956 draft. After a rookie season in which he appeared in 72 games averaging 21 minutes a night, John had to miss the 1957-58 season to fulfill...

The point guard in the NBA has transformed into 6’3-6’4 guys with electric speed, strength and athleticism. The two prime examples would be Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook. According to Gary Payton, those two guys aren’t ‘real’ point guards.
“We don’t really have point guards in the NBA now. We really have (shooting) guards – and that’s a fact,” Payton said...
