BOSTON — Rajon Rondo isn't saying for sure when he'll return to the Boston Celtics lineup, but a Tweet from his verified account Monday night would indicate that his return will be Friday against the Los Angeles Lakers.

That equates to the number of days between Rondo's season-ending surgery on Feb. 13, 2013, and Friday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Rondo told reporters last week that he would return to action prior to the NBA All-Star break in February.

A Yahoo Sports! report came out that Rondo was targeting Friday's game against the Lakers for his return.

Multiple league sources contacted by have confirmed that the four-time All-Star is in fact hoping to be back on the floor for Boston this week.

Prior to Monday's loss to Houston, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said Rondo's return was looking to be "sooner rather than later."
