Boston Celtics PG Rajon Rondo Open To Using D-League As Rehabilitation Tool

Rajon Rondo may be nearing a return to the court, which should please my few Boston Celtics’ readers out there. The point guard is even open to playing in the D-League in order to get his feet wet.

“That’s what it’s for,” Rondo said to Boston Globe. “I’ll probably be the first [NBA player] to [use it as rehab] but it doesn’t make a difference. I want to make sure I’m healthy and I handle it the right way. I don’t want my first time to come back out game-like to be the first time with the Celtics. I haven’t had a preseason. I haven’t had a training camp. Right now, this is my training camp.”

The Celtics would be the number nine seed in the East and miss the playoff is the season ended today, so they could certainly use the boost from the feisty floor general. If Rondo decides to play you can bet Rant Sports will be on the ball, and until then we will just have to see if head coach Brad Stevens can keep the Lucky Irish afloat. He has done an excellent job with limited resources so far, and something tells me he would be able to use Rondo quite effectively.
