Rajon Rondo Has Successful Hand Surgery

Rajon Rondo sat out for the Boston Celtics game against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night to undergo surgery that removed a screw in his hand. Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said the operation was successful, via A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com:

“It went well. It happened (Saturday) morning and from everything I’ve gathered it’s just a matter of letting the stitching heal and he’s back at practice Tuesday,” Stevens said. “So it’s a three-day thing.”

Stevens said he has been told that hand is healing well and that it’s structurally it’s fine.

“It was just a matter of he had to take the screws out,” Stevens said. “Even I could see the screws in the X-ray, so that means … I saw them. They were really there.”

Rondo is currently leading the league in assists (11.2) after returning from an ACL injury that sidelined him for part of last season. He’s been linked to trade rumors and is set to be an unrestricted free agent after this season.
