Maybe the best thing about Rondo's injury is that he was able to miss some games where the worst aspects of "regular-season Rondo" would have clearly shown up. A bored Rondo is an unhelpful Rondo.

Kobe on Rondo:

"He's moody. He's feisty. He's temperamental. He's a teammate's dream."

Rondo consistently makes the entire bench unit better. Also if you've noticed, Lance's play has fallen off a cliff since Rondo left. He had a great night or two when Rondo was suspended, but without Rondo to control things he's out of control.

Rondo is gonna go the Jason Kidd route by being a head coach the day he retires.

@Mike_Bresnahan

Rajon Rondo (broken right hand) went through “pretty much” all of today’s practice, Luke Walton said.

He’s not quite cleared for full contact, and Walton said Rondo won’t play Wednesday vs. San Antonio.

Rondo injured his hand on November 14th. He was supposed to be out 4-5 weeks. It's been just under 3 weeks so far.

I'd be a little cautious still about bringing him back unless Rondo has unusual recuperative powers.

Honestly, if BI can't play with Rondo, there's not much hope for him. He needs to learn to either cut and catch/shoot or outplay LeBron to have the ball in his hands. He needs to opt into being the finisher not the starter of a play.

We are doing just fine without him. He can stay and be coach for the season.

Rondo being back will be helpful, because some nights Ball just doesn't have it, and we really do need to have a second PG on the team.

That and some nights the bench unit will come out and just play horrible. Rondo can guide them around the floor.

It will be interesting to see how many minutes he will get when he returns. I think both Ingram and Kuzma are playing better because Rondo is out. He can’t play off ball players need to readjust again once he is back

Rondo should play almost all of his minutes with the bench to try to hold the fort when Lebron needs a breather. The offense often falls apart when our subs are out there without Bron.

Walton said Rajon Rondo still has swelling in his hand, so he won’t play until that goes down. Original timeline from Nov. 15 was 4-5 weeks, and it’s Dec. 8
