The Los Angeles Lakers will not be entering the NBA’s resumed season fully healthy.
Los Angeles reportedly will be without the services of four-time All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo for the next six to eight weeks after he underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a fractured thumb.
Rondo injured his hand during a practice earlier this week as the Lakers got back to the court in Orlando, Fla.
The 34-year-old Rondo averaged 7.1 points and five assists per game across 48 games this season.
