Los Angeles Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo will not play in Monday night's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers after an MRI revealed he has a fractured finger.
With James operating more at point guard, Rondo has been shuffled to the bench.
He's averaging 7.6 points and 5.4 assists through 27 appearances.
The third-year guard is averaging 5.8 points and 1.7 assists.
Although Los Angeles will miss Rondo's presence in the backcourt, his injury shouldn't significantly disrupt things for head coach Frank Vogel.
