After a hot start to the season, the Boston Celtics have fallen to the 11th seed in the Eastern Conference with a 13-23 record. But here’s some great news for Celtics fans.

According to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, Rajon Rondo is targeting a January 17th return vs. the Los Angeles Lakers.

“I feel 10 times better than the first time. I feel more confident and stronger, more explosive. So what I’m doing in the weight room is productive.”

“I feel like I’m ready now, but I’m not in shape. I can go out there and I can give the team 10 minutes. I want to be productive out there. I don’t want to limp or drag behind because of my cardio. That would be hurting the team. I don’t want to be selfish and go out there and not be able to go up and down every possession and give it all I got. That’s what I can’t do right now.”
