Basketball – NBA: Rajon Rondo Expected To Be Out For A Month After Finger Surgery
According to a team announcement, Los Angeles Lakers guard Rajon Rondo will be sidelined for 4 or 5 weeks, after experiencing medical surgery on a sprained ring finger.
The 32-year-old endured the damage on Tuesday in the Lakers’ triumph over the Golden State Warriors, before sitting out Thursday’s misfortune at the Sacramento Kings.
After reports recommended Rondo would not be available for 1 month, Los Angeles anticipated length of his nonappearance on Friday.
In the wake of breaking a similar hand against the Portland Trail Blazers in November, Rajon Rondo missed 17 matches before this season. And, before enduring this finger injury, Rondo had just returned a week ago and only featured in 3 matches.
Rondo’s injury is not the first bad news for Laker fans, as their star player, LeBron James, is also unavailable for a few matches, as he strained his groin against the match with the Warriors.
At present, LA Lakers are tied for fifth place in the NBA’s Western Conference with the Blazers and are 20-15 after their recent loss to the Kings.
