Pelicans' Rajon Rondo Out 4-6 Weeks With Sports Hernia

Pelicans' Rajon Rondo Out 4-6 Weeks With Sports Hernia”

The 31-year-old point guard suffered the injury in the first half of Friday's preseason game against the Oklahoma City Thunder and was kept from Sunday's matchup against his former team, the Chicago Bulls, as a precautionary measure.

Rondo, 31, is entering his 11th National Basketball Association season since being selected in the first round of the 2004 draft.

The New Orleans Pelicans say veteran guard Rajon Rondo is expected to be sidelined about four to six weeks following surgery on Tuesday to fix a core muscle injury.

Meaning, the Pelicans starting backcourt this season will look "exactly" like it did at the start of last season.

This offseason they attempted to remedy that by signing Rajon Rondo in free agency. With Jrue Holiday running the point, and E'Twaun Moore filling in at the two-guard spot.

The Pelicans will be Rondo's fifth team in five seasons after he spent the bulk of his early career with the Boston Celtics as a key cog in the team's 2008 National Basketball Association championship.

New Orleans opens its regular season in Memphis on October 18. He finished with 7.8 points per game and 6.7 assists per game, both of which were his lowest since 2008, and had plenty of locker-room struggles.
