Rajon Rondo getting closer to return to practice

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — There is no word when Rajon Rondo will return to Celtics practice after Feb. 13 surgery to repair a partially torn right anterior cruciate ligament, yet indications are that he is getting close to being cleared for five-on-five workouts and coach Brad Stevens has been planning for his presence.

Rondo played one-on-one with teammate MarShon Brooks before the Celtics’ 96-86 win over the Bobcats on Monday, making hard, aggressive moves on the right leg as he streaked for layups. Rondo has been a fixture on road trips and his participation in drills has increased over the past few weeks.
