Rondo may return by training camp, Ainge says

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Monday he expects Rajon Rondo to be ready for Celtics training camp in October after he was declared out for the season Sunday with a torn right anterior cruciate ligament.

“Rajon will get surgery in 10 to 14 days, when the swelling is right and we anticipate that he’ll back and as good as ever in training camp,” Ainge said. “(Kendrick Perkins) Perk came back in six months and that’s a little bit unusual and Adrian Peterson came back in six months and so did Wes Welker. I guess every body is a little bit different and [with] every injury there’s some differences.”
