Rajon Rondo spoke about his ACL injury with ESPN’s Hannah Storm.
After getting an MRI, Rondo said he first heard about the torn ACL from a radio reporter:
On the way back, I heard on the radio that Rondo might have a torn ACL. I was like… We just got the results, there’s no way possible.
I knew the reporter and was like, “How does he know this thing?” I just left the hospital, just got the results.
Confirmation came a short time later when Rondo returned to the Garden. The report couldn’t have been from WEEI because, except for the game broadcasts, they ignore all Celtics news.
As for a possible return date:
“When I got out of surgery, for three to four weeks nobody said anything about when I’ll be back, or when I’ll be able to play. They just wanted me to take it one week at a time and just see how I progress from there,” he told Storm. “Everybody’s body is different. Everybody plays the game differently. An injury like this varies.”
