Dallas Mavericks point guard Rajon Rondo will not play in the team's next three games, the Mavs announced on Friday.

Rondo left Saturday's game against the Orlando Magic after taking a knee to the face from teammate Richard Jefferson. Rondo lay on the court as blood appeared to fall from his nose.

It was later revealed that Rondo suffered an orbital fracture in his left eye and a nasal fracture.

Rondo did not play in games this week against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings.

Dallas acquired Rondo in a December trade with the Boston Celtics. Over 21 games with the Mavericks, the 28-year-old has averaged 9.2 points and 6.5 assists while shooting 40.4 percent from the field.

The Mavericks improved to 34-18, good for sixth place in the Western Conference, by winning in Sacramento on Thursday. Dallas will face the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday.

After the game against the Blazers, Dallas will face the Los Angeles Clippers and the Utah Jazz before the All-Star break.
