(Boston Celtics Rajon) Rondo had been able to return ahead of schedule after undergoing surgery in late September, and even though he wasn’t showing any ill effects on the floor — averaging 12.4 points, 12.5 assists, and 9 rebounds in the first four games — the screws had been nagging at him.

“The screws were irritating me a little bit and I was getting X-rays on it weekly,” Rondo said.

Initially, after he talked it over with team doctor Brian McKeon, Rondo planned on playing with the screws in his hand until February.

“Dr. McKeon thought I would be able to make it to All-Star weekend,” Rondo said. “But I wasn’t.”
