There's still no timetable as to when Rajon Rondo will return to the floor for the Boston Celtics. But it's clear that the 6-foot-1 point guard's health is trending in the right direction. The four-time all-star was in town last week and did some work on the floor with his new head coach Brad Stevens. "He's obviously limited in what he can do on the court" Stevens said. "But he's a worker. That was one thing that was very noticeable." Rondo suffered a torn right ACL injury at Atlanta on Jan. 25 but the injury was not determined until a couple days later when a routine MRI showed the tear and thus put an end to his season. Under the watchful of famed orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews Rondo's knee was surgically repaired on Feb. 15. Shortly after Rondo's injury Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge stated that Rondo would be back for the start of the season. While there hasn't been a delay in his recovery Rondo's timetable looks more and more like he will miss all of the preseason as well as some regular season games. Stevens said no timetable has been set for Rondo's return adding that he had not inquired about Rondo's return in the past couple of weeks.
