Rajon Rondo to miss at least a few weeks with broken hand
The Los Angeles Lakers will be without Rajon Rondo for at least a few weeks.
Rondo suffered a broken hand during the Lakers’ win over Portland on Wednesday night, according to head coach Luke Walton. Walton says he thinks Rondo broke the hand while reaching for a steal.
We’ll get more details on this later; Walton just found out the results prior to his press conference. But he did note that Rondo hit his hand on the floor, presumably when he stole the ball from Nurkic in the 4th Q. Walton said he wasn’t sure and would have to check the tape. https://t.co/Ur2xgYRtsW

Rondo did not score but had 2 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals in the Lakers’ 126-117 win over the Trail Blazers. The win marked the Lakers’ second of the season over Portland.
Rondo missed three games earlier this season due to a suspension, and the Lakers went 2-1 without him. He has seen his minutes decline as Lonzo Ball has taken over the starting point guard job.
