With the Celtics [5] mired in a losing streak and spiraling down the standings, Rajon Rondo [4]‘s return can’t come soon enough, and it doesn’t appear the All-Star point guard is all that far off from playing for the first time since his ACL injury.

“I get the impression it’€™s sooner rather than later,” Celtics [5] coach Brad Stevens [6] told reporters prior to playing the Rockets.

While Stevens, Rondo and the Celtics [5] are avoiding any strict timeline, the coach didn’t rule out a return this week. “I think you could say possibly,” he said.

Yahoo’s Marc Spears reported that the Rondo was targeting Friday’s game against the Lakers as his comeback night. The Celtics also face the Heat on Jan. 21 before hosting Paul Pierce [7], Kevin Garnett [8] and the Nets [9] on the 26th — on ESPN, no less, and we all know how Rondo enjoys national TV audiences.

Rondo added to the speculation when he sent out a tweet Monday night reading “29,233,380 secs.” That’s the amount of time from his surgery on Feb. 13 to tipoff for Friday’s game.
