Rondo, who signed with the Lakers in 2018, missed several weeks during the 2018-19 season after undergoing surgery to fix a torn ligament on his right ring finger.

Lakers guard Rajon Rondo is out for at least six weeks with a thumb injury.

Rajon Rondo broke his right thumb in practice with the Los Angeles Lakers in Florida. The 34-year-old Rondo usually comes off the bench to serve as back-up point guard to LeBron James.

He last played for the Memphis Grizzlies in 2017-2018, averaging 7.7 points and 3.0 assists in 21.5 minutes per game over 66 games. He has been a regular presence on the floor late in close games, with coach Frank Vogel trusting his veteran leadership and playmaking. The recovery timeline could keep him on the sidelines until the second round of the playoffs. He also broke his left hand in 2014.

But before the Lakers can start their push for an National Basketball Association title, they have to face the Kings in their final seeding game on August 13.

Rondo, who suffered the injury during practice Sunday evening, will undergo surgery this week.

Alex Caruso and Quinn Cook are likely to get more playing time at point guard in Rondo's absence.
