Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo will return to action against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night barring any late injury setbacks.

Rondo is yet to play in the NBA this season due to the ACL injury he picked up at the end of January 2013.

The 27-year-old NBA star is said to have recovered from the injury and is now in contention to make his first appearance for the Boston Celtics in just under a year.

Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has confirmed Rondo is likely to feature in his side's encounter against the Los Angeles at the TD Bank Garden on Friday night.

Ainge, speaking to 98.5 FM in Boston, said on Rondo: "Unless there are any setbacks [Thursday], we're anticipating him playing [Friday]."

The Boston Celtics are currently languishing in fourth spot in the Atlantic Division so will be hoping star player Rondo can have a major impact on their results between now and the end of the season.

Brad Stevens' side go into the game after ending a nine-game losing streak against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.
