Celtics [1] president of basketball operations Danny Ainge confirmed Thursday morning that Rajon Rondo [2] is on schedule to make his first appearance of the season Friday night when the C’s host the Lakers.

“Unless there are any setbacks [Thursday], we’re anticipating him playing [Friday],” Ainge said in an interview with Boston radio station WBZ-FM, noting that the guard will be restricted to five minutes per quarter.

Rondo was placed on the active roster and in uniform for Wednesday’s win over the Raptors, but he did not enter the game.

Rondo has been out since tearing his ACL last January and having surgery.
