Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has moved a step closer to returning from a severe knee injury, reports Yahoo Sport.

Rondo missed the end of last season due to an ACL injury he picked up at the start of the year.

The 27-year-old missed the remainder of the season and has had to sit out the Boston Celtics' first 19 games of the 2013-14 campaign.

The Boston Globe believe Rondo has been cleared to return to practice as soon as he feels he is ready to return to action.

Rondo, who was due to play for in the NBA All-Star Game at starting guard, finished last season with the highest assist average - despite missing just over three months of the NBA season.

News of Rondo's potential return would be music to the ears of Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens, who has been forced into playing Jordan Crawford at point guard.
