Rondo Playing 1v1 and 3v3

Written by 

Rajon Rondo has been a fierce competitor since the day he put on the Celtics uniform.

Sidelined to start the season while he recovers from his ACL injury, the Celtics point guard still stays focused during the games and offers his advice to teammates. As some members of the Celtics organization put it, he is dying to come back.

Perhaps that could explain why he’s bending the rules a bit.

Rondo, according to Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge, has been partaking in 1-on-1 and 3-on-3 over the past few weeks. Sometimes, without the entire permission of doctors.

“He played 3-on-3 three weeks ago when he wasn’t supposed to,” said Ainge. “But, I asked (the training staff) if it was OK for him to be playing one-on-one, and the answer was yes.”

For the most part, Boston’s all-star has been recovering at a quicker pace than some expected. While we can’t take too much out of a few scrimmages with his teammates, it is surely a step in the right direction.
