Rajon Rondo returned to practice with the Boston Celtics on Monday following his two-game suspension for a fight with Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries last week. The Celtics won one game and lost the other without their starting point guard, but failed to crack the 100-point mark in either contest. Rondo is happy to be back with his teammates, but that doesn’t mean he was miserable during his time off. According to the Boston Globe, reporters asked Rondo on Monday if he learned anything from the two-game ban and he gave a simple response: “No.” He also said he took a little vacation to Mexico since he had the week off. “I wanted to be out there with my teammates but, obviously, a two-game suspension … like I said, I was glued in front of the TV,” Rondo explained. “Hopefully I don’t feel too winded tomorrow. I think I’ve been off for about a week now. “It was difficult. I love being around the guys. I love coming into practice and being around them on the team plane, but I had to miss that for a couple of days. But other than that, everything is back to normal.” In Rondo’s defense, there aren’t many players in the NBA who would learn something from being suspended after getting into a minor dust-up with an opponent — although, he did leave some pretty nasty scratches on Humphries. As for vacationing to Mexico during the time off, I’m not sure how common that is among players. I suppose if you’re prohibited from being with the team there’s no point in sulking in your condo. At the same time, he probably could have kept that information to himself. Photo credit: Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports
