Rajon Rondo, who is set to undergo ACL surgery next week, is only expected to be out for six months and could be ready for the start of the 2013-14 season.

Rondo has a partial tear of his ACL rather than a full tear, which is great news for his short and long-term outlook. "It's still too early to tell for sure," his agent Bill Duffy told "But we are very optimistic about his return now that we know his injury is only a partial tear and not a full tear."
