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.

BOSTON -- The Boston Celtics' annual Tip-Off Gala -- a formal-wear event that both raises money for the Shamrock Foundation and previews the upcoming season -- has turned into a bit of a fashion show for the team's players.

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...

Sullinger growing into bigger role

BOSTON -- Every team needs a leader. And on a roster filled with youth, the Boston Celtics are putting a lot on the shoulders of third-year forward Jared Sullinger to grow into that role. Does that create any added pressure? Sullinger doesn’t seem to think so. “I grew up with pressure,” Sullinger said. “I’ve got an older brother named James that puts a lot of pressure on me. My older brother Julian, he puts the most pressure on me.

Three Things We Learned From the Celtics' 100-86 Win Over the Nets

The Celtics wrapped up their preseason slate on a positive note Wednesday night, handily defeating the Brooklyn Nets 100-86 in a rematch from Sunday.

Rapid Reaction: Celtics 100, Nets 86

BOSTON -- Prior to Wednesday’s preseason finale against the Brooklyn Nets, Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens described his team’s play thus far as a healthy dose of both good and bad. Rookie Marcus Smart’s all-around performance in the game that followed would fall in the former category. Smart saved his preseason best for last, pacing the Celtics with 16 points and shooting 62.5 percent in the team’s 100-86 win over the Nets.

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.
