The injury of LeBron James will give Rajon Rondo more playing time in the following Lakers games.

According to head coach Frank Vogel, the veteran guard will be the player that will see his playing time on the floor increase. Vogel also noted Rajon Rondo will play alongside Russell Westbrook in parts of the games.

For his part, James is dealing with an abdominal strain and will remain out of action for at least one week.
