Rajon Rondo Breaks Hand, Out 6-8 Weeks

The Boston Celtics announced on Friday night that point guard Rajon Rondo has a broken left hand and will miss the start of the regular season. Rondo is expected to be out of action for at least six to eight weeks. He underwent surgery on Friday morning at a New England hospital after reportedly falling out of the shower.

The Celtics have guards Avery Bradley and Phil Pressey, not to mention their first-round draft pick Marcus Smart on hand to fill the point guard duties in Rondo’s absence. 

Trade speculations followed Rondo through the summer and Celtics GM Danny Ainge has given his straightforward thoughts on Rondo’s future in Boston thus far. Rondo suffered an ACL tear in January 2013 contributing to him missing 95 games in the last two seasons (52 in 13-14). He can become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
