BOSTON (CBS) – According to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports, Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo will undergo surgery on his right knee next week.

Spears also reports Rondo is only projected to be out six months, as his ACL is only partially torn. That would set Rondo up for a return at the start of training camp next season.

Rondo suffered the injury on January 25 during the fourth quarter of a double-overtime loss to the Atlanta Hawks. Since his injury, the Celtics have rallied and won six straight.

The surgery will take place just before the NBA’s All-Star break. Rondo was elected a started on the Eastern Conference squad, but will now miss the festivities in Houston as he recovers from surgery, according to Spears.

Rondo averaged 13.7 points and an NBA-leading 11.7 assists per game prior to his injury.
