Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has stated publicly -- several times -- that point guard Rajon Rondo wants to return from ACL surgery by training camp and play on opening night.
Yet while speaking with WSYX Columbus on Friday teammate Jared Sullinger shared a different timetable for Boston's four-time All-Star.

"He's back working out again and hopefully he'll be back by December" said Sullinger.

Obviously we don't know how much Sullinger knows but he has hopefully (if you're a Celtics fan looking for locker room camaraderie) stayed in contact with his longest-tenured teammate.
