Danny Ainge says not to expect Rondo back until December

The Boston Celtics roller coaster of an early season continued Wednesday — they lost the first four, won the next four, then showed up against the Bobcats Wednesday and simply got outworked.

Still, a 4-5 start without Rajon Rondo on the roster is better than expected… and by the way, when might Rondo return from his ACL surgery?

Not until you have the Christmas lights up on your house, apparently. From the official twitter of the Boston Celtics.

First off, we’re never going to get a really straight answer from the organization on his recovery, this is about as good as that will get.

Second, not sure Ainge’s answer is really a surprise. Ainge had hinted earlier that come December things could move week to week.

Rondo wants you to know he is still working out.
