Rondo had successful surgery on his injured left hand, which was apparently injured in one of the most common household accidents there is:
Rajon Rondo told Celtics he broke his hand slipping in the shower, source told ESPN. Broke one bone in back of his hand. Out 6-8 weeks.

The worst case scenario for the Boston Celtics would have them without Rondo for a month of the regular season. In his place, first-round draft pick Marcus Smart is likely to see time at point guard in training camp. It is unclear if he will slide into a starting role at the position come Boston's season opener on October 29th against the Brooklyn Nets.
