07:25 AM ET 12.17 | While Boston continues to keep ahead of a pace some fans hoped would land it in the lottery, the franchise may soon see the return of its best player. Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens reaffirmed Monday that the decision on when Rajon Rondo returns to game action ultimately lies with the player and when he feels ready -- both mentally and physically. "I don't see how it could be anything else," Stevens said. ... Rondo, who underwent ACL surgery in February, received clearance to return to full-contact activities after a visit with operating surgeon James Andrews on Friday. He participated in two Celtics practice sessions this past weekend and is targeting a return in the new calendar year. Stevens has downplayed the impact of Rondo's return to practice because of his constant presence this season.
