Rondo out about a month after hand surgery, Lakers say

LeBron James is listed as day to day with his strained left groin after the results of his MRI exam came back clean, the Los Angeles Lakers announced on Wednesday. Ball went for 20 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds in the Lakers' road loss to the Sacramento Kings on Thursday.

Rondo is averaging 8.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 6.7 assists in 14 games this season.

Lakers head coach Luke Walton said the decision on when James plays next will be made in conjunction with the superstar and the team's medical staff.

LeBron James could miss several games after suffering a groin strain. However, the Kings went on a insane run and tied the game at 112 when Kyle Kuzma fouled Kings forward Justin Jackson on a 3-point attempt.




"We were a little out of composed", Kuzma said, via Ron Gutterman of Lakers Nation.

The injury will be quite the blow to the Lakers as LeBron has been the main key to the team's success. "Hopefully, it is not a long thing and I can get back on the floor as soon as possible". But the Lakers struggled down the stretch and lost their fourth in six games.

The latest injuries mean the Lakers will likely rely heavily on Lonzo Ball to run the show at the point with Brandon Ingram or Lance Stephenson seeing an increase in ball-handling duties.

James, who remained in Los Angeles while his teammates flew to Sacramento, had previously played in every game since the finale of the 2016-17 regular season, when he sat out to rest.
