“Hopefully I won’t miss any games this year,” Rondo said in an exclusive interview with CSNNE’s Mike Gorman. “Lord willing I heal correctly and I’ll be back in no time.
“They’re telling me 6-to-8 [weeks]. But that means nothing to me.”
Gorman then asked if Rondo would be a possibility for Opening Night at the end of October.
“Always,” Rondo said.
“I’m sure they’re going to be very cautious and Danny [Ainge, Celtics President of Basketball Operations] already said it. When I’m ready, like I said this isn’t my knee this is a finger.”
Yeah, that sounds like Rondo. Before his knee issues, he was known for his durability and playing through absolutely everything. Remember when he wouldn’t let a dislocated elbow sideline him in the playoffs against Miami?
Rondo had his arm in a sling when he talked to reporters at media day, and the Celtics don’t really have a good reason to rush him back. If it’s up to him, though, he’ll be on the court as soon as humanly possible.
