Dallas Mavericks point guard Rajon Rondo will not play in the next three games, the team announced on Friday.
It was later revealed that Rondo suffered an orbital fracture in his left eye and a nasal fracture.
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.
