Washington – Palestine today
Rajon Rondo will miss the Los Angeles Lakers when NBA play resumes on July 30 after suffering a broken finger on Sunday, according to US media reports, as reports indicated that playmaker Rondo suffered a broken thumb. He will undergo surgery this week, which is expected to keep him out of competition for six to eight weeks.
While the Lakers have not issued an official statement in this regard, they did, via their official Twitter account, repost a tweet from reporter Mike Truddell confirming these details.
The 34-year-old Rondo played 48 games for the Lakers this season before the games were suspended in March due to the novel coronavirus, and the player averaged 7.1 points and five assists per game.
Rondo’s injury comes as the Lakers, along with 21 other NBA teams, prepare to complete the season in a different, shortened format behind closed doors at the Disney Complex in Orlando, Florida, USA, starting July 30.
According to the schedule published by the league at the end of June, “ranking games” will take place between July 30 and August 14, with the elimination rounds of “playoffs” starting on the 17th.
And the Lakers, led by their star LeBron James, are among the most prominent candidates to go far in the league this season, and they led the Western Conference standings before the games were suspended last March.
