Altitude: Rajon Rondo did not injure hand at trampoline park
|09.29.14 at 8:32 am ET|
Soon after the Celtics announced point guard Rajon Rondo broke a metacarpal in his left hand during a fall at his home Thursday — reportedly in the shower — and will miss 6-8 weeks of the season following surgery, Barstool Sports published a photo of Rondo at Billerica’s Altitude Trampoline Park the same day, fueling wild speculation.
Over the weekend, a pair of Altitude employees denied on Twitter any knowledge of the injury taking place at the business. “He sat and watched his kids jump,” said the employee who appeared in the photo with Rondo.

And on Monday, Altitude co-owner Kerry Hughes issued the following statement to WEEI: “In regards to Rajon Rondo‘s visit to Altitude in Billerica on Thursday the only comment we have is that he was here with his children and his children were the only members of his party that enjoyed jumping, climbing and our battle beam pit. He did not attract much attention as he only sat on a couch and watched his children enjoy our park’s activities. He appreciated our professional staff and allowed a few pictures to be taken. He left with no injuries or incident.”
Unless Rondo quietly broke his hand sitting on a couch, there’s no reason to distrust the shower theory — one the Celtics stood behind soon after Barstool posted the photo. Carry on, folks.
Celtics brass aware Rondo went to trampoline park on Tuesday (for his daughter's b-day party). Ainge & Co. still believe shower incident.
