News: After missing the entire exhibition season, Rondo had 13 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds in Wednesday's opener against Brooklyn. Impact: Fantasy owners have to be thrilled with what they saw from Rondo. "He looks like himself," coach Brad Stevens said. "He kind of looks like what I saw on film before I got here. I don't think he ever looked like that at any time last year. ... But he is back to full speed. And it's really good to see."(STATS, 00:21am)

News: Rondo (hand) scored 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3P, 0-4 FT) with 12 assists and seven rebounds in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 121-105 win over the Nets. Impact: His broken hand may have affected him at the free throw line, but otherwise it was an impressive season debut for the Celtics' point guard. Rondo may not finish the campaign in Boston, but he should be plenty productive wherever he plays.(RotoWire, )

News: Rondo is in the starting lineup for the Boston Celtics' opener against the Brooklyn Nets. Coach Brad Stevens said before Wednesday night's game that his All-Star point guard is ready to return from the broken hand that cost him most of training camp. Impact: Rondo was expected to miss six to eight weeks, but in updates this week he hinted that he might be able to come back early. It's been five weeks since he broke his left hand when he slipped in the shower. Stevens said Rondo will wear something to protect the hand during the game. But Rondo won't have any limits on how many minutes he plays.(STATS, 5:02pm)

News: Rondo (hand) will start Wednesday's regular season opener against the Nets, the Boston Herald reports. Impact: Rondo, who broke his hand barely a month ago, will culminate his quick recovery by being ready to start at point guard in Wednesday's season opener. As a result, rookie first-rounder Marcus Smart will come off the bench. Since Rondo has been a full participant in recent practices, it's likely he'll be able to play without restriction moving forward, offering fantasy owners fantastic production from the point guard position.(RotoWire, )

News: Rondo (hand) will practice Tuesday, after which he'll be examined one final time in advance of Wednesday's season opener against the Nets, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Rondo, who return to full-contact practice Friday, is progressing quickly from a broken hand and appears likely to take the court for the opener. Official word should come later Tuesday, so be sure monitor the point guard's status as Wednesday night's tip approaches.(RotoWire, )

News: Rondo is considered by coach Brad Stevens to be "somewhere in the realm of questionable" to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Nets. Impact: Rondo went through his first full-contact practice Friday since breaking his hand over a month ago and reportedly responded well to the conditions. As a result, Rondo is edging toward being cleared to re-claim his starting point guard position as early as Wednesday. Although Rondo's prospects of playing appear encouraging, the dexterous distributor's status should be monitored in advance of Boston's regular season opener.(RotoWire, )

News: Rondo (hand) took part in full-contact practice Friday for the first time since sustaining his injury, MassLive's Jay King reports. Impact: It's starting to look more and more realistic that Rondo could be ready to go for the season opener. If Rondo can't go, Marcus Smart will start at point guard, but those who have yet to draft shouldn't discount Rondo much, if at all, due to his hand injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Rondo (hand) has been as close to full contact in practice as one can be without being cleared for full contact, according to coach Brad Stevens, Scott Souza of the MetroWest Daily News reports. Impact: This is pretty convoluted, but it's a good sign for Rondo's chance of returning to game action in the near future. The Celtics still haven't ruled him out for the season opener, and because of that, he shouldn't carry much of a discount on draft day.(RotoWire, )

News: Rondo (hand) could be ready for the season opener on Oct. 29, CSN Northeast's A. Sherrod Blakely reports. Impact: He will sit out the Celtics' final preseason game Wednesday, but the broken bone in his hand is healing properly, and if he gets cleared to take part in the contact portion of practices later in the week, there's a chance the Celtics could have him for the start of the regular season. He could use a protective glove for his hand, but it would have to be approved by the league. At this point, Rondo shouldn't be downgraded much in fantasy drafts.(RotoWire, )

News: Rondo (hand) is progressing well in his recovery from surgery and could begin participating in contact drills as early as next week, according to coach Brad Stevens. Impact: Rondo underwent surgery to repair his broken left hand last month, but has already gone through non-contact drills during recent practice sessions. Since his condition continues to improve, Rondo may be cleared for contact sooner than expected, which has caused coach Stevens to leave open the possibility of Rondo being available for the Celtics' regular season opener Oct. 29. As a result, Rondo's status should be closely monitored as the week unfolds, since he'll surely displace rookie Marcus Smart as Boston's starting point guard once healthy.(RotoWire, )
