04:13 PM ET 01.30 | Famed Boston Celtics point guard, Rajon Rondo, is set to have his knee injury re-evaluated by orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, according to his agent Billy Duffy. Duffy told A. Sherrod Blakley of CSNNE.com that Andrews is at the top of the list of potential surgeons to perform the surgery. Duffy also said that if Andrews is not consulted, the camp will consider other well-known doctors. Duffy also said that the camp will wait approximately four or five days for the swelling to go down first until they look for a second opinion. As well, according to Blakley, Duffy said the camp is looking to set up meetings with other athletes who have had suffered similar injuries. One of the other athletes they're trying to set up a meeting with is Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings.

Why so much trouble to find a doctor.......

I don't see anything that points to Rondo or the Celtics NOT being able to "find a doctor".
..
When it's all said and done, Rondo will have the best medical and rehabilitation care money can buy. Bet on it!

Exactly. Kind of the way that you "snapped" when Melo got penalized for stalking Garnett.

LOL!

Why so much trouble to find a doctor ? It is, after all, Boston. With all of Boston's flaws, one strength is its supply of good doctors.Harvard is one of the top medical schools in the world, and you have various hospitals that are associated with it - MGH, Beth Israel, etc. The surgeons there are among the best in the country.

They don't have the Cleveland Clinic, baby.

Who the hell does Rondo think he is? If he thinks he's too good to tear his ACL he got it twisted like Lebron on who runs his house... better go get that knife up ya **** quick.
