Rajon Rondo kneed in face by Richard Jefferson, leaves Mavericks-Magic game for good (video)


Rajon Rondo took a nasty-looking knee from teammate Richard Jefferson in tonight’s Mavericks-Magic game.

The Mavericks are deep at point guard with Devin Harris, J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton. That trio can probably fill the void tonight against Orlando and Monday against Minnesota, a couple lottery-bound teams.

But if the Mavericks succeed without Rondo, look for the growing questions about whether they’re better without him to intensify. If I were Dallas, I’d definitely hope he’s ready to return by Wednesday’s Warriors game, though.
