Rajon Rondo will most likely miss the entire preseason and some regular season games

A. Sherrod Blakely of Comcast SportsNet New England says that the timetable for Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo's most likely means that he will miss the entire preseason, as well as some regular season games. Rondo had surgery on his torn-ACL on February 15th.

While there hasn't been a delay in his recovery, Rondo's timetable looks more and more like he will miss all of the preseason as well as some regular season games.

While this isn't much of a surprise, it does mean something to hear it from someone like Blakely. It's probably for the best that Rondo miss these games, and probably half of November. On the other hand, the Celtics have a tough schedule to start the year, so not having Rondo could really set them back.

The news I hope to hear is that he will be able to practice with the team even before he's ready to return to live-game action. With training camp starting in about two weeks, I assume he'll be with the team, but it would be beneficial if he was able to practice.
