Rondo update: He can walk

Via Jess Camerato of CSNNE:

With a heavy brace on his right knee, Rondo was coy when asked about his recovery.

“I’m able to walk,” he said.

Upon being asked what he is able to do on the basketball court, he replied, “I’m able to walk.”

Rondo is able to do more than just walk, though. He took shots on the parquet before the Celtics game against the Detroit Pistons dressed in a long-sleeve shirt, shorts, and a pair of Nike low tops.

The point guard first took one-handed shots with his right hand, jumping just slightly but never putting pressure on his right foot upon landing. He then took two-handed shots without elevating.

With eyes constantly watching Rondo during his rehab, he brushed off his appearance at the TD Garden.

“There are eight guys in here that are playing basketball tonight,” he said. “I’m not playing basketball.”

Looking good, Rajon.

See you in the Eastern Conference Finals.

I’m kidding.

    Wishful thinking…but I’m wishing right along with ya! We’re gonna need him against the bulls in the ECF 😀

    I’ve been real hard on Rondo for awhile but it’s really good to see him around the team.

  • I am so glad to see him, I really wish he would do a documentary on his journey with his injury, its been so many knee injuries going around the league. I couldnt believe how the media was saying in the begining that this was a better team without Rondo, now they see he has been truly missed, and come playoff time he is going to really be missed. Rondo great player during the season but he is a superstar in the post season. With the Vets going through injuries and Jeff Green not quite really to carry a team, I hope Boston can go deep.
