Rajon Rondo “makes everyone else rise up”

At a breakfast function this morning in Boston, new Celtics coach Brad Stevens was asked about Rajon Rondo and the progress the former Kentucky guard is making in his rehab after ACL surgery.

Stevens said Rondo is doing well though he has yet to be cleared to do everything just yet.

Stevens also said this:

“Has the date been determined? No. Does it look like he’ll be there at the start of the season? No. But he is in the gym and when he is in the gym, people are that much better because I think he’s just got a way about him that makes everyone else rise up. And that’s been a really important thing for us and he’s been great so far.”

Rondo suffered the injury back in January and underwent surgery on his right knee on Feb. 14. Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery.

The Celtics open the season Oct. 30 in Toronto.
