Rajon Rondo underwent surgery on his sports hernia injury and will miss 4-to-6 weeks. If Rondo returns in four weeks, he will have missed the first 11 games of the season. That's the best-case scenario. His fantasy value obviously takes a significant hit, and he'll slide to later rounds of fantasy drafts. With Rondo sidelined, the Pels will likely start Jrue Holiday at point guard, which should allow Holiday to boost his assist numbers over the first month-plus of the season. Ian Clark, E'Twaun Moore, Jordan Crawford, and Tony Allen will also see an uptick in minutes.

Head coach Alvin Gentry said that Rajon Rondo is dealing with a sports hernia and he will be meeting with a specialist on Monday to determine the next step. While we don't know the severity of Rondo's injury, it seems there's a good chance he'll be beginning the year on the sidelines, so he's now a very risky guy to look to prior to the final few rounds. For some context, Markieff Morris was hit with a 6-8 week timetable when he underwent his procedure to correct a sports hernia, but everyone recovers from injuries differently and it's not been decided if Rondo will require surgery. If he does need to miss time, Jrue Holiday would likely slide over to start at point guard, and there would be more minutes for guys like E'Twaun Moore, Jordan Crawford and Ian Clark.

Rajon Rondo (groin) will not play on Sunday against the Bulls. No revenge game here. The Pelicans downplayed Rondo's injury and said he could've returned in a regular season game. It's preseason, so there really is no reason to throw out a 31-year-old guard out there. With him out for most of Friday, we saw some DeMarcus Cousins at the point while Jrue Holiday ran more of the offense. Expect a good amount of Ian Clark, too.

Rajon Rondo (groin) could have returned had it been a regular season game. He was called questionable to return after a small injury in the first. It's not every day the Pelicans get good news on injury, so this is a welcomed sight. Rondo should be ready for the start of the season and could have value in points leagues.
