Rondo nears return to Celtics after knee injury

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON ( -- Rajon Rondo will work out with the Maine Red Claws prior to being reassigned to Celtics.

The team made the announcement via a statement Wednesday.

"Rajon is progressing terrifically in his rehab and this is the next step," said Danny Ainge, Celtics President of Basketball Operations. "This is a brief assignment so that Rajon can participate in a workout this afternoon with the Red Claws and he will be called back up to the Celtics upon the conclusion of the workout."

The Red Claws are a development league team affiliated with the Celtics.

Rondo, a four-time All Star and the only remaining member of the Celtics' 2008 NBA championship team, has not played since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in January 2013.
