Mavericks will be without Rondo for at least 3 games

DALLAS (AP) - Dallas Mavericks point guard Rajon Rondo will miss at least three games after suffering an orbital fracture to his left eye.

The Mavericks said Monday that Rondo wouldn't play against Minnesota and will not travel with the team to the West Coast for games at Golden State and Sacramento later this week. Rondo will remain in Dallas to undergo additional testing and evaluation.

Less than 2 minutes into Saturday night's win at Orlando, Rondo tripped over the leg of Magic guard Elfrid Payton. While trying to get up, Rondo was inadvertently kneed in the face by teammate Richard Jefferson.

In 21 games since being traded to Dallas from Boston, Rondo has averaged 9.2 points and 6.5 assists per game.
