LOS ANGELES (CBSLA/AP) — Veteran point guard Rajon Rondo broke his right hand Wednesday night during the Lakers 126-117 win over the Blazers at Staples Center.
Head coach Luke Walton said the injury happened while Rondo was making a steal in the fourth quarter.
“He broke his hand,” Walton said in a post-game news conference. “Fractured, broke – I’ll give you details later.”
He will be sidelined for at least a few weeks, Walton said.
Rondo had been back on the roster for just a few of weeks after being suspended without pay in October for an on-court fight with the Houston Rockets’ Chris Paul.
