Rajon Rondo will seek 2nd opinion, wants to speak with Adrian Peterson

Maybe he can convince AP to play some power forward for us.

Rajon Rondo likes to do his homework. Usually that means playbooks and opposing guard's tendencies. Now it means his ACL injury. Instead of rushing into surgery, he'd like to get a second opinion from the best doctor(s) he can find.

Rondo looks to get second opinion on ACL with Dr. James Andrews

And that second opinion may come from arguably the best in the business - famed orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews. "He (Dr. Andrews) is one that we're definitely considering," Rondo's agent Bill Duffy, told "If he's No. 1, there's a couple 1As and 1Bs we're looking at as well."

He's also going to talk to other athletes.

In addition, Duffy said they are in the process of setting up meetings with other athletes who have had similar injuries. Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is among those that Rondo's camp hopes to speak with very soon. Peterson suffered a torn left ACL and MCL injury on Christmas Eve in 2011, and was back on the field for the season opener in September - less than nine months after the injury.

Rehab is Rondo's new job now. Glad to see he is approaching it the same way he does the basketball court.
