Rajon Rondo took to Twitter on Saturday to address fans for the first time since suffering a season-ending ACL tear January 25 against the Atlanta Hawks.
Appreciate all the prayers and support. thank you. teamrondo Rajon Rondo (@RajonRondo) February 9, 2013
This week Rondo's agent, Bill Duffy, told CSNNE.com this week that the Celtics point guard has a partial -- not full -- tear. Yahoo! Sports reported that Rondo is expected to undergo surgery next week, and the procedure could include either Rondo's ligaments or those from a cadaver.
The Celtics are currently on a six-game winning streak since Rondo did not suit up against the Miami Heat on January 27. They will face the Denver Nuggets in Boston on Sunday.
