Rajon Rondo says he's not very close to game shape

Rajon Rondo looks great in a suit on the bench, but he looks even better in his jersey playing on the court. Unfortunately for the Boston Celtics, Rondo says he's not close to returning to the court.

When you see how often players returning from major leg injuries are hurting another part of their leg (Kobe, Rose), you can't blame Rondo for waiting until he's really 100 percent recovered from his torn-ACL. So, instead of playing the tiresome and tedious game of "will he or won't he return," I think it's just best we wait until an announcement comes out that he is close to returning to the court. Until then, Brad Stevens and the Celtics will have to do all they can to pick up wins without their star point guard.
