It's not really a story anymore, were all aware that Rondo isn't ready to return. But if you listen to everyone, all we get is "progressing well". Which is expected to be said I suppose. I wrote an article over at CelticsLife.com about what the Celtics will look to do in the meantime without Rondo. I think the majority of fans want Lee to take up the minutes until Rondo's return. Nobody can replace Rondo, and it's going to be hard to watch a bunch on non point guards running the offense.
Where is Rajon Rondo in his rehab from ACL surgery?
“You really didn’t think I was gonna let this get done without asking,” ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, the event emcee, joked with Stevens. “I’m not just gonna ask how’s he's doing, but where is he at with his rehab right now?”
After first thanking the audience for attending the event, the second annual Coaches vs. Cancer Tip-Off Breakfast to raise money for the Coaches vs. Cancer program, Stevens obliged.
“Rondo is progressing well,” he said in the Legends suite at TD Garden. “He’s in the gym, he’s working. He’s been great at what he can do. He has not been cleared to do everything, and it looks like that'll be a little bit of time before he is.
“Has the date been determined? No. Does it look like he’ll be there at the start of the season? No. But he is in the gym and when he is in the gym, people are that much better because I think he’s just got a way about him that makes everyone else rise up. And that’s been a really important thing for us and he’s been great so far.”
