Rajon Rondo Out For Season With Torn ACL


Boston Celtics star Rajon Rondo has torn his anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the rest of the season. The team made the announcement during Sunday’s 100-98 double-overtime win over the Miami Heat.

“We’ve just got to rally around each other,” Paul Pierce said after the game. “I feel for him. He was having such a good season. It’s disappointing news.”

Rondo injured his right knee in Friday night’s double-overtime loss in Atlanta, a game in which the Celtics blew a 27-point lead. He reported to the TD Garden on Sunday for a pregame shootaround but was taken to a hospital after complaining of knee pain.  Rondo was averaging career highs of 13.7 points and 5.6 rebounds along with 11.1 assists this season.
