Rajon Rondo is out for the season with a torn ACL suffered during the Boston Celtics’ loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Friday. Rondo never collapsed, fell to the floor, or needed to be taken off the court as if he had suffered a major knee injury Friday, so the news was surprising to many. ESPN believes it identified the play where Rondo got hurt. They showed it during the telecast of the Lakers-Thunder game on Sunday and, based on the video, it just looks like Rondo hurt himself landing after jumping: Fans weren’t the only ones surprised to hear about Rondo’s injury; Paul Pierce learned about it during a postgame interview with ABC/ESPN’s Doris Burke on Sunday. In the video below, you can see his reaction to being told that Rondo was out for the season: Think about it — Rondo was in the lineup for Sunday’s game and wasn’t removed until coach about 25 minutes before the game. He went to the hospital for an MRI that revealed the torn ACL. These injuries generally take several months of rehab, so Rondo will also be out through a large portion of next season. He was leading the league in assists and minutes. The post Rajon Rondo tears ACL; Paul Pierce learns of it in interview (Video) appeared first on Larry Brown Sports.
