DALLAS (AP) - Rajon Rondo has played his last game for the Dallas Mavericks, and Chandler Parsons is out for the rest of the playoffs with a right knee injury that will require surgery.

After saying that Rondo was out indefinitely with a back injury sustained before he was benched in a Game 2 loss to Houston, coach Rick Carlisle acknowledged Wednesday that Rondo will not play another game for Dallas.

The four-time All-Star sat all but 34 seconds after halftime Tuesday night in a 111-99 loss that gave the Rockets a 2-0 lead in the first-round series. Game 3 is Friday night in Dallas.

Carlisle said Parsons was exploring options for surgery. He played in Game 1 of the series after missing the last six games of the regular season.
