Minutes restriction lifted for Rajon Rondo

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

No more limits but still precautions.

Rajon Rondo is one step closer to being back to "full speed."  He will no longer be restricted in minutes played.  He played 37 minutes last night in Dallas, a season high.

Coach: Rajon Rondo ‘time limit’s off’ | Boston Herald

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Rondo won’t play tonight in Milwaukee, but the coach indicated Rondo’s embargo on playing in the second game of back-to-backs may end after this game against the Bucks. "Time limit’s off, yeah," said Stevens. "(Rondo) probably will be cleared to play in back-to-backs again very soon. I asked the question right after we met prior to the game and it sounds like, again, that’s sooner rather than later, but no time issues."

Keeping him out tonight sounds like a precaution and simply following through with the plan put in place already.  But assuming there aren't any complications or additional soreness or whatever, we'll be seeing a lot more of Rajon Rondo on the court soon.
