Rondo (hand) will undergo surgery before the weekend, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. A timetable of 3-to-5 weeks was established for Rondo's return, which should still hold true. However, with surgery, it may be on the latter end. In Rondo's absence, Lonzo ball is slated to see an uptick in workload.

Rondo had 17 points (8-10 FG, 1-1 3PT) , 10 rebounds, six assists and three steals in Saturday's win over Portland. While Lonzo Ball started the game at point guard, coach Luke Walton rolled with Rondo for 26 minutes, compared to just 19 for Ball. Rondo responded with one of his better all-around efforts of the season, though he did commit five fouls and four turnovers. Still, Rondo finished as a team-best plus-28.
Rondo had 12 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, and four rebounds in 29 minutes during Saturday's 120-116 loss to the Spurs. Rondo returned after missing three games due to suspension, and came off the bench, playing 29 minutes in total. Despite moving to the bench, Rondo saw more playing time than Lonzo Ball who managed just 26 minutes himself. Rondo's role moving forward appears to be one that should allow him to produce some sporadic standard league value. That being said, he is going to be tough to roster given the slight uncertainty and lack of wide-ranging production.
