Looks like Brook Lopez and Rajon Rondo will play on Opening Night

Lionel Hollins told beat writers what Nets fans wanted to hear.  Brook Lopez may very well play against the Celtics and Rajon Rondo may be on the opposite side of the court. "He was on the [anti-gravity] treadmill, but he’s doing fine," Hollins told reporters Friday when they asked about his mild midfoot sprain. "I think he’ll be ready by opening day, but that’s my opinion to talking to with him, but the doctors [still have to clear him]." Hollins said that he did not see the need for Lopez to practice prior to next Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics. Indeed, Lopez was the only Net...

Lookin like a Rondo. how u. Rajon Rondo was initially expected to miss 6 to 8 weeks, which would have put him back somewhere in the early-to-mid November timeframe.  The team's first game is next Wednesday, October 29 and it sounds more and more like Rondo is going to give it a go. Looks like open season for Rajon Rondo | Boston Herald "I think obviously he’s got a chance to pick it up easier than last year when you can’t do as much running, jumping, cutting — all that stuff — because you’re coming off of a knee injury," Stevens said. "He’s been able to do that the whole time....

Looks like open season for Rajon Rondo

WALTHAM — It’s looking more and more as if the Celtics are preparing as if Rajon Rondo will be ready to play in the regular-season opener next Wednesday against Brooklyn.There are still issues that could get in the way as the All-Star point guard seeks to return from a broken left hand suffered just prior to the start of training camp — and the Celts certainly aren’t about to rush him — but he will be increasing his involvement in contact portions of practice.

Healing will dictate if Rondo plays opener

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens was talking Thursday about the ways the team was helping point guard Rajon Rondo stay sharp while rehabbing from a broken hand when Stevens noted how skeleton work and conditioning drills would help "expedite [Rondo] being ready on Wed..." Then Stevens caught himself. It might have been a simple slip, but Stevens quickly changed what might have been "Wednesday" -- as in Boston's season-opener against the Brooklyn Nets -- to "whenever" while noting that he hoped Rondo's return was, "hopefully sooner rather than later" and that the point...

Rondo participates in contact drills

BOSTON -- Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said Wednesday that injured point guard Rajon Rondo has begun participating in contact drills but is still relegated to wearing a large pad on his left hand in order to do so. "He's progressing well," Stevens said. "He'll continue to do a little bit more in practice. Did a little bit more yesterday. Anytime that it's even close to a contact-esque drill that he's been allowed to do, he has a nice-sized pad on his hand.

Scal Defends Rondo

It was nice to see Scal step up for Rondo against Tanguay today ...On Rajon Rondo:“I think he’s a fantastic player. I think he’s very bright. He is the smartest player I’ve ever played with. He understands the game on a higher level. Does he have his moments that are difficult, like if you had to coach him? I would say yes. His relationship with Doc Rivers was fine. Don’t think it wasn’t. Rajon Rondo is a great player.”Tanguay brought up the usual arguments against Rondo - that he's not consistent, that you don't max a non-scorer, that he's a liability late in games, etc..  ...

Rajon Rondo may play Opening Night vs Nets

Rajon Rondo suffered a broken hand on September 25 and underwent surgery to repair a metacarpal fracture the following day which is supposed to keep him out six to eight weeks. That timetable meant that Rondo would miss the Celtics season opener against the Nets on October 29. However, head coach Brad Stevens thinks that the star guard may be available come opening night in Boston. #Celtics coach Brad Stevens: a chance Rajon Rondo could be cleared for contact by end of week, opening night still possible. — Scott Souza (@scott_souza) October 20, 2014 Rondo wasn't as optimistic as his...
