The agent of Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo has reported that the torn ACL injury suffered by the All-Star guard is a partial tear and it's possible that he can make a return to the floor sooner than anticipated, according to a CSNNE.com report.
Following the injury, Rondo's expected return to action was expected to be sometime before the start of next season.

"It's still too early to tell for sure," his agent Bill Duffy said. "But we are very optimistic about his return now that we know his injury is only a partial tear and not a full tear."
Rondo suffered the injury in Boston's 123-111 double overtime loss to the Atlanta Hawks in regulation but still managed to play in the overtime sessions with the partially torn ACL injury.
Though the Celtics have managed to win games without Rondo-six in a row- rising all the way to the seventh seed in the East at 26-23. Also it's unclear if there's been any conditioning work done since suffering the injury.
Since suffering the injury, Duffy said Rondo has been educating himself on all his options from which type of surgery to have performed. Rondo plans to speak with orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews before making a decision on the best course of action to take.
Rondo is one of the toughest, most competitive players in the league, so it's not surprising that he's pushing to return. Following his injury, he actually was heard saying he'd be back in two weeks.
