Rajon Rondo is focused on limiting his turnovers and getting to the rim more aggressively this season.

Paul Pierce was complimentary of Rondo's play so far in training camp, saying, "Rondo looked great today. He's pushing the ball. He looks strong. He's knocking down his shot. He's taking his shot. But that's what we want from him, and that's what we're going to expect from him." Rondo attempted 42 percent of his FGs at the rim last season, but he still has a tendency to over-pass sometimes, possibly because he's leery of heading to the FT line, where he's a career 62 percent shooter. Increased FT totals won't help his fantasy value, but a more aggressive Rondo is great news for the Celtics.

Chris Wilcox has officially signed a one-year deal with the Celtics.

Fantasy owners know to avoid Wilcox on draft day, but he's a decent addition to Boston's depth chart for what is likely the veteran's minimum. After undergoing heart surgery in March, he has been fully cleared for basketball activities.

According to league sources, Chris Wilcox has agreed to a one-year deal with the Celtics.

The deal is likely for the league minimum which, for WIlcox, is $1.35 million. A heart ailment cut Wilcox's season short last year, but he has been medically cleared for a full return. Wilcox appeared in 28 games last season for the Celtics, averaging 5.4 points and 4.4 rebounds over 17.2 minutes per game. He will return to his reserve role and hold very minimal fantasy value.

Chris Wilcox announced on Wednesday that he will not return this season due to a heart-related issue.

Recent tests detected a potential abnormality in Wilcox's heart, and he may have the same issue that forced teammate Jeff Green to have season-ending surgery. The good news is that the problem was detected before it caused serious damage. Boston's frontcourt just got even thinner, with Kevin Garnett, Brandon Bass and Greg Steimsma as the primary bigs.

Chris Wilcox (heart) will undergo further tests and there is no timetable for his return.

The Celtics aren't expecting him back in the near future and there is no reason for fantasy owners to be holding him at this point. We wish Wilcox the best during a difficult time and hope for a speedy recovery.
