Rondo hurt his right wrist while driving to the hoop for a layup in Wednesday night’s matchup against the Toronto Raptors. He was able to stay on the floor for his two foul shots, but was taken out for the rest of the game.
Rondo is second on the team with 15 points per game (Ray Allen has 15.6 per game) and is second in the entire NBA with 9.4 assists per game. Only Steve Nash has more with 10.1 each contest.
Too bad Rondo is going to be out against the Suns as he and Nash would have filled out the assist part of the stats sheet in this game.
Other top guys include: Jose Calderon, Raptors (8.7 assists), Derrick Rose, Chicago Bulls (8.7), Kyle Lowry, Houston Rockets (8.7), Chris Paul, Los Angeles Clippers (8.4), Deron Williams, New Jersey Nets (8.4) and even Ricky Rubio, Minnesota Timberwolves (8.3).
All of these point guards have the ability to pass the ball, but is there one of these players who is far superior than all of them?
