The mystery surrounding Rajon Rondo's return to the basketball court continues.

Over the summer most had assumed that the mercurial point guard would be healthy in time for the Celtics' season opener against the Toronto Raptors.

That is until Jared Sullinger now facing his own set of problems recently stated his hope that Rondo would be back on the court by December.

In the weeks following that comment the date of Rondo's 2013-2014 season debut has become no more clarified.
