05:25 PM ET 12.30 | Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has been out since Jan. 25 after partially tearing his ACL. Rondo is nearing a return and the Celtics may decide to make a rather unorthodox move in Rondo's rehab by placing him in the NBA's Developmental League. The Celtics' D-League affiliate is the Maine Red Claws. This would be a big surprise to everyone because NBA doesn't usually send veteran players, especially those of all-star quality like Rondo down to the D-League for rehab. However, it is a common practice in other sports, namely Major League Baseball.
