Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
“I’m getting fitted for my first brace, and I don’t think contact will be too far from there,” the Celtics point guard said. “I just have to get cleared by my doctors. I know it’s getting stronger each week. When I’m able to jump off my right leg and dunk, that’s probably when I’ll be ready to play.
“Feeling great, working out every day. I’m doing more as far as compound workouts. I’m doing one workout a day, so I’m doing more as far as working on my leg. It’s getting better each day.”
Rondo reiterated that when he comes back, he doesn’t want restrictions — on his minutes or otherwise.
“No. If they want me to ease into it, OK. But I want to get back out there and go full speed. I don’t want any limitations,” he said. “I’ll know when it’s right. Everybody is different. Lot of people have ACL injuries. But I won’t come back until I know I’m myself again.”
Nothing surprising here from Rajon. We should all pretend he doesn’t exist until Thanksgiving.
In we-knew-it-was-coming news, the Celtics released Damon Bell-Holter and Kammron Taylor. Chris Babb and DeShawn Sims should be the next to go.
The regular season starts next Wednesday. Are you ready?
