Rondo has seen his minutes decline since Lonzo Ball returned to take over the starting point guard job, but the Lakers’ depth will be tested without him. Luke Walton said on Wednesday that he expects to be without Rondo for a few weeks.
After he scored no points on 0-of-4 shooting and had two rebounds and three assists against Portland, Rondo is averaging 8.5 points, 6.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game on the season.
