Rajon Rondo PG BOS 17 Days

Rondo scored 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT) with 15 assists and 10 rebounds in 37 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.

After teasing a triple-double a couple of times already, Rondo finally racked up his first (and likely not his last) TD of the season. He may not finish the season in Boston, but he's showing no signs of slacking despite the young squad around him.

Rondo (hand) struggled with his shot Monday but was still productive, scoring seven points (3-11 FG, 0-1 3P, 1-2 FT) with 15 assists, nine rebounds and two steals in 37 minutes during Monday's loss to the Mavs.

The renewed swelling in his hand may have been a factor, but then again Rondo isn't a stranger to bad shooting nights even when he's healthy. His offense may be occasionally inconsistent, but the Celtics' point guard is once again a great source of assists and rebounds relative to his position.

Rondo has dealt with swelling in his previously broken hand but it isn't concerning according to him, CSN New England reports.

Rondo had a spectacular start to the regular season Wednesday and there's no reason to believe he'll disappoint moving forward. He will take the court against the Rockets on Saturday and will likely continue to prove that his hand injury is no longer an issue.

Rondo (hand) scored 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3P, 0-4 FT) with 12 assists and seven rebounds in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 121-105 win over the Nets.

His broken hand may have affected him at the free throw line, but otherwise it was an impressive season debut for the Celtics' point guard. Rondo may not finish the campaign in Boston, but he should be plenty productive wherever he plays.

Rondo (hand) will start Wednesday's regular season opener against the Nets, the Boston Herald reports.

Rondo, who broke his hand barely a month ago, will culminate his quick recovery by being ready to start at point guard in Wednesday's season opener. As a result, rookie first-rounder Marcus Smart will come off the bench. Since Rondo has been a full participant in recent practices, it's likely he'll be able to play without restriction moving forward, offering fantasy owners fantastic production from the point guard position.

Rondo (hand) will practice Tuesday, after which he'll be examined one final time in advance of Wednesday's season opener against the Nets, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports.

Rondo, who return to full-contact practice Friday, is progressing quickly from a broken hand and appears likely to take the court for the opener. Official word should come later Tuesday, so be sure monitor the point guard's status as Wednesday night's tip approaches.

Rondo is considered by coach Brad Stevens to be "somewhere in the realm of questionable" to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Nets.

Rondo went through his first full-contact practice Friday since breaking his hand over a month ago and reportedly responded well to the conditions. As a result, Rondo could be ready to re-claim his starting point guard position as early as Wednesday. With that in mind, the dexterous distributor's status should be monitored in advance of Boston's regular season opener.

Rondo (hand) took part in full-contact practice Friday for the first time since sustaining his injury, MassLive's Jay King reports.

It's starting to look more and more realistic that Rondo could be ready to go for the season opener. If Rondo can't go, Marcus Smart will start at point guard, but those who have yet to draft shouldn't discount Rondo much, if at all, due to his hand injury.

Rondo (hand) has been as close to full contact in practice as one can be without being cleared for full contact, according to coach Brad Stevens, Scott Souza of the MetroWest Daily News reports.

This is pretty convoluted, but it's a good sign for Rondo's chance of returning to game action in the near future. The Celtics still haven't ruled him out for the season opener, and because of that, he shouldn't carry much of a discount on draft day.

Rondo (hand) could be ready for the season opener on Oct. 29, CSN Northeast's A. Sherrod Blakely reports.

He will sit out the Celtics' final preseason game Wednesday, but the broken bone in his hand is healing properly, and if he gets cleared to take part in the contact portion of practices later in the week, there's a chance the Celtics could have him for the start of the regular season. He could use a protective glove for his hand, but it would have to be approved by the league. At this point, Rondo shouldn't be downgraded much in fantasy drafts.
