Laker’s Rajon Rondo is likely to miss three-to-five weeks due to a broken right hand, according to ESPN. Rondo suffered the injury during last night’s victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.
According to ESPN: “Rondo will see a specialist Thursday to determine whether to opt for surgery, a team source told ESPN. The Lakers are operating under the assumption that Rondo could be out three to five weeks, depending on the decision to undergo surgery and the recovery time, the source said.”
It’s believed that the fracture happened during the fourth quarter. When he was leaving he was asked about the injury, simply answering, “I’m not talking about it.”
“He hit his hand on the floor when he went to steal that ball,” Lakers coach Luke Walton said. “They [the medical staff] are getting all the details. I just know he will be out for a few weeks.”
