Rajon Rondo underwent successful knee surgery on Tuesday and would be back in time for training camp. The Boston Celtics twitter account broke the news.

The surgery was done by Dr. James Andrews who was also operated on Minnesota Vikings star running back and NFL MVP Adrian Peterson. Andrews used a patellar tendon graft to reconstruct the partially torn ACL according to Boston.com.

Rondo is expected to be back by training camp according to Danny Ainge. Adrian Peterson was back on the field in about nine months after his surgery. Training camp starts in October which is only eight months away.
