Rajon Rondo feels positive vibe

Rajon Rondo has spent his second straight training camp as a kind of associate coach under Brad Stevens.The Celtics point guard obviously has no choice. It’s either help teach the youngsters, or spend his time as a hermit in the trainer’s room waiting for his left hand to heal. That’s simply not in the nature of a player who envisions himself as a coach.So Rondo, in his physically restricted capacity, takes part in skeleton drills and gets in the ear of rookie Marcus Smart. He discusses schemes with members of the staff.

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo expects to have his broken hand reevaluated in the coming days and continues to express a desire to return to action sooner than the team's initial recovery timeline might have suggested. Rondo said before Thursday's game in Philadelphia that he expects to be examined soon to check how a fractured bone in his left non-shooting hand is healing, likely with an eye towards being cleared for contact activities. "I’m doing pretty good, my hand is feeling better each day," Rondo told the team's website.
