Boston Celtics star Rajon Rondo could make his NBA comeback next month, according to head coach Brad Stevens.

Celtics point guard Rondo has been out of action since the end of January, as the point guard tore his ACL against the Miami Heat.

The 27-year-old has been cleared to return to action by the Boston Celtics' team physician Dr. Brian McKeon and operating surgeon Dr. James Andrews.

Rondo has been taking part in limited-contact training sessions but is yet to return to full training.

However Boston Celtics head coach Stevens said Rondo will be back sooner rather than later.

Stevens, speaking to ESPN, said on his star player: "Rondo] had a good trip [Friday], as far as getting good news, and it looks like he's on schedule to be closer, but still probably doesn't look like we're going to see him on the court any time this month.

"Hopefully as we get into January, he'll be closer."

Boston Celtics power forward Brandon Bass and head coach Stevens both said Rondo has looked good in training.

Stevens will be hoping the Boston Celtics can carry on their fine form when Rondo eventually returns to the fold, as the Eastern Conference franchise are top of the Atlantic division.
