The Los Angeles Lakers are without the backup point guard Rajon Rondo after he had broken his right thumb. Head coach Frank Vogel provided an update on the return of the 34-year-old veteran.

“He’s definitely gonna come back into the bubble very soon. I’m not sure the exact details of it but I think he’s making his way to Florida tomorrow. I think he’s going to spend a certain amount of time outside of the bubble before he’s reintegrated inside the bubble,” Vogel said.

Rondo, former NBA champion with the Boston Celtics, is averaging 7.1 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists per game for the Lakers this season.
