Rajon Rondo is back to 100 Percent Health

Fear not, Celtics fans. Rajon Rondo is 100 percent healthy and ready to take on the rest of the NBA.

A gruesome fall during Game 3 against the Miami Heat in last year’s NBA postseason left Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo with a dislocated left elbow. He returned valiantly to play (and play well, even) later in that very same game, only to have the injury catch up with him as the Celtics were eliminated in five games.

He’s all healed now, though.

 “The elbow is fine. I have been playing in a lot of games and it hasn’t given me any problems yet.”

Rondo has been working out at his alma mater, the University of Kentucky, and while he admits to not being quite in game shape yet, the most important thing is that he’s healthy.

With the lockout lingering, it appears Rondo has plenty of time to reach his All-Star form as he looks forward to playing.

“I hope there’s a season,” Rondo told Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. “I’m looking forward to it and everyone around the league is, even the fans. It’s just an extended vacation as far as trying to continue to train and get better. It’s more time for me to work on my game, and that’s how I try to face it in the next couple of weeks or months or whatever we have. Right now my focus is to play with the Celtics.”

If only the owners and the players could reach an agreement so we can enjoy a 2011-12 NBA season full of unbelievable, jaw-dropping plays like this from Rondo.

Stupid lockout.
