When Rajon Rondo had ACL re-construction in mid-February, we knew there was a chance that he would not be ready in time for the season opener. However, both Rondo and the Celtics have been adamant in making sure to not set a timetable for his recovery. Therefore, most Celtics fans have held on to hope that Rondo may in fact be good to go on October 30th. But according to A. Sherrod Blakely, it's just about time to put those hopes on ice. Although it's important to note that Blakely does not close the door completely. 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. Stevens said no timetable has been set for Rondo's return, adding that he had not inquired about Rondo's return in the past coupl...

What's Up with Gerald Wallace?

I'm beginning to think that Gerald Wallace doesn't want to be a Celtic. First, he didn't show up for the introductory press conference. I'll admit that Kris Humphries and MarShon Brooks didn't look all that pleased at the presser, but they showed up. Keith Bogans at least looked like he wanted to be there. But then again, Bogans just got a much bigger contract...

Celtics’ Rajon Rondo unlikely to be ready for start of season

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.

Report: Rajon Rondo Likely To Miss Entire Preseason, Start Of Regular Season

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.

Jared Sullinger in counseling, girlfriend doesn't want to pursue the case

We haven't heard any news regarding Jared Sullinger since he was charged with assault and battery two weeks ago.  Earlier today CSNNE's A.

Rajon Rondo’s Future, Brad Stevens’ Plan Among Celtics’ Top Questions (Photos)

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...

Video: Coach Stevens and the Celtics run a basketball clinic in Dorchester

Joe Pace Almost Played for the Celtics?

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...

Avery Bradley Faces Pivotal Season as Restricted Free Agency Looms

Few players’ values are as invariably overstated or understated as Avery Bradley‘s. On one hand, he is a game-changing lockdown defender whose importance became clearer during his prolonged absences in the past two seasons. On the other hand, he is a poor ballhandler for a guard, a still-developing offensive player and an injury waiting to happen, if only due to the way he puts...

Kelly Olynyk Progressing, Hoping He Won't Be Limited

Plantar fasciitis forced Kelly Olynyk to skip training with the Canadian national team this summer, but the rookie said on Friday that he is progressing. "It's getting a lot better," said Olynyk. "Obviously, we’re still taking precautionary measures to make sure I’m ready to go for training camp; hopefully it doesn’t linger throughout the year." Pressed...

What the Hell Happened to...Johnny McCarthy?

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...

Watchability Rankings Don't Always Tell the Whole Story

USA Today is ranking teams on their watchability. In their opinion, the Phoenix Suns will be the least watchable team in the NBA this season.
