James isn't expecting to miss much time based on his tweet shortly after news broke. The Kings visit Los Angeles for a rematch Sunday. (Thanks) to the almighty above!

The Lakers were up by 15 points with just over six minutes remaining in the game, but mental mistakes plagued them.

Already without LeBron James due to a sprained left groin, the Lakers lost Rondo to a Grade 3 sprain to his right ring finger.

Los Angeles faces the Kings in Sacramento on Thursday night before starting a four-game homestand against the Clippers the following night.

The initial feeling in the Lakers locker room was positive and optimistic after James suffered the injury during the third quarter of a 127-101 win over Golden State on Tuesday. "I'm going to be around-the-clock tomorrow rehabbing and we'll see how I feel on Thursday when we go to Sac".


"I take a lot of pride in [staying healthy], so that is why it pissed me off not being able to go back into the game", James said.

This is a blow to Luke Walton's team, since the Lakers were going to rely on Rondo's veteran leadership and playmaking ability with James nursing a groin injury. "But we also will be very cautious when we bring him back".

Kyle Kuzma led the way for the LeBron-less Lakers with 33 points in Sacramento, while Lonzo Ball added 20 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds in a losing cause.

Rondo had just returned December 21 after missing the previous 17 games following surgery to fix a fractured third metacarpal in his right shooting hand.
