Blakely Of CSNNE Believes Rondo Will MIss The First Month Of The Season

Posted by shawn cassidy on August 13, 2013 at 1:55 PM

Until I hear it from a few more sources, I believe Rondo will be back at the start of the season, call me optimistic, or just in denial. I wouldn't be shocked if he does miss the first month or another month after. I want Rondo back right, I don't want him to rush into things, especially since were not talking championship this year.

A. Sherrod Blakely-Plenty Of Questions And Some Answers In C’s Of Season

"That said, here’s my “potential” – there’s that word again – starting five this year.

Point guard: Phil Pressey (I expect Rondo to miss the first month of the season)

Shooting guard: Avery Bradley (Best defender; improving shooter)

Small forward: Jeff Green (Should be the team’s top scorer this season)

Power forward: Jared Sullinger (Healthy following back surgery, still needs to be monitored)

Center: Kris Humphries (Starting center will be by committee all season)

Other than the signing of big man Vitor Faverani, the Celtics did nothing on the free agent market.

And between now and training camp, that’s unlikely to change."

IT's weird that Blakely puts it like that. It's so specific. Everyone else is saying either opening day, or mid-season. Why one month specifically Sherrod?

I think he's guessing and assuming. No quotes from anyone.

Maybe it's his way of saying that Rondo's recovery is running a little slower than expected, but no one is panicking yet...

Even if it's ture, we should expect something like this, I think.
I'm not worried at all.
