Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo may be suited up and ready to go for the season opener on Oct. 29 against Brooklyn, according to head coach Brad Stevens.
"He had a scan on his hand and he's progressing great," Stevens told ESPN. "He obviously won't do any contact before the end of the week, but there's a chance that he could be cleared to do some stuff by the end of the week ... I think it's a possibility [he could play on opening night]."

Rondo said he slipped and fell in the shower at his home in late September, fracturing a bone in his left hand. The C's captain missed the first three months of last season as he recovered from an ACL injury.
