Rajon Rondo suffers fractured thumb in practice
The Los Angeles Lakers will definitely miss “Playoff Rondo”.
Rajon Rondo, the Lakers’ secondary ball-handler behind LeBron James, sustained a fracture thumb at team practice, and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Rondo leaves a huge void in the guard spot for the Lakers, as well as Avery Bradley who opted to enter the Orlando Bubble for the sake of his family’s health.
Still, the Lake Show signed Dion Waiters and JR Smith for them to fill in the scoring roles.
Rondo has averaged 7.1 points, 5.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game off the bench before the season was suspended.
