Rajon Rondo ACL: Rondo to seek second opinion, may speak with Adrian Peterson


Famed Boston Celtics point guard, Rajon Rondo, is set to have his knee injury re-evaluated by orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, according to his agent Billy Duffy.

Duffy told A. Sherrod Blakley of CSNNE.com that Andrews is at the top of the list of potential surgeons to perform the surgery. Duffy also said that if Andrews is not consulted, the camp will consider other well-known doctors.

 “He (Dr. Andrews) is one that we’re definitely considering,” Rondo’s agent Bill Duffy, told CSNNE.com. “If he’s No. 1, there’s a couple 1As and 1Bs we’re looking at as well.”According to his agent, Billy Duffy, the camp has said

Duffy also said that the camp will wait approximately four or five days for the swelling to go down first until they look for  a second opinion.

As well, according to Blakley, Duffy said the camp is looking to set up meetings with other athletes who have had suffered similar injuries.

One of the other athletes they’re trying to set up a meeting with is Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is among those that Rondo’s camp hopes to speak with very soon.

Peterson suffered a torn left ACL and MCL injury on Christmas Eve in 2011, and was back on the field for the season opener in September – less than nine months after the injury.

So if you’re wondering who treated Peterson’s surgery, look no further because it was Dr. Andrews who operated Peterson.

Furthermore, Celtics general manager, Danny Ainge, expects Rondo to be back at the earliest, the start training camp next season.

As for Rondo, he knows what he has to do. He has to focus all his energy and time on recovering and rehabilitating. He has to be patient and take care of his knee with extreme caution because at just 26-years-old, Rondo still has a lot of basketball left in him.
