In his first public comments since undergoing surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee,Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo told ESPN’s Hannah Storm that it’s “frustrating” not to be on the floor with his teammates, but he has come to accept the situation.
“I’m in a place now where I am OK with it,” Rondo told Storm in a sit-down interview that will air on ESPN2 at 9 p.m. ET on April 18. “I know this is my main focus, getting healthy.”
Rondo tore the ACL on Jan. 25 against theAtlanta Hawks. He didn’t think the injury was serious at the time.
“I didn’t hear a pop. … I thought I could play through it,” he told Storm.
