The Globe has an update on KG and his knee…
“Kevin looks good, he’s in here
working out every day,’’ Ainge said yesterday from the team’s practice
facility in Waltham. “He’s doing his training, but he’s not playing
full-court basketball yet.
taking it as slow and as cautious as we can with him. He’s anxious and
he has a ton of energy, but I think he gets it. We don’t have
bodyguards on him to keep him from working too hard. He’s on the
program with the staff.
“We don’t have timetables on this. We are going week to week and we’ll make a decision on where he is.’’
… and Rondo's contract
Asked if he was optimistic about an
upcoming contract negotiation, Rondo replied, “Not really. I’m just
playing it out, trying to get better every day.’’
league source said the Celtics plan to hold talks with Rondo before the
start of training camp later this month. Rondo has one year remaining
on his contract.
Rondo talks about working on his jumper and his pick-and-roll defense. He says the Celtics made a commitment to come into town early and start working out… and that pretty much everyone is doing it (pretty much? ….. hmmmm…. ).
As for KG, everyone seems to be of the same mind: take it slow. No need to pound on that knee by running and jumping all the time. I'm sure he's shooting and doing drills… which is why Danny specified that he's not playing "full court basketball".
