Despite being just one game back behind the first place Toronto Raptors in the Atlantic Division, the Boston Celtics desperately need their starting point guard back. The Celtics received some good news Sunday night, as Rajon Rondo told reporters that his return may be mid-January, late February.

“My endurance is key for me,” he told reporters after Boston’s 106-79 loss at Indiana on Sunday. “I don’t want to come back and not be fully 100 percent as far as my health and me being in shape as well. The worst thing for me is to not be in shape and have another injury. I want to make sure I’m in basketball condition shape.”


After initially telling reporters a January return was not realistic for his return, he later said that, “it might be mid-January, late February. I’m going to come back when the time is right and when I get my stamina.”

Rondo trade rumors have existed for a while now, and it will be interesting if they start back up again once he makes his return.
