All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo underwent successful knee surgery Tuesday that was performed by Dr. James Andrews, Celtics team president of basketball operations Danny Ainge told the Globe Wednesday. “Dr. Andrews thought the surgery went great, clean, no complications, no other damage,” Ainge said.
Rondo was diagnosed with a torn anterior cruciate ligament Jan. 27 after suffering the injury a few days earlier in a double-overtime loss to Atlanta in late January.
Ainge said Andrews used a patellar tendon graft to help reconstruct Rondo’s torn ACL, and that Rondo is optimistic about a full and speedy recovery.
