From NBA Twitter and media reports

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Rajon Rondo was expecting to make his season debut on Sunday vs. the Toronto Raptors, but ultimately decided against it. According to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, the veteran playmaker will instead seek to better his conditioning before returning to the court.

Rondo has missed the Lakers’ first eight games while dealing with a right calf injury.

In his 13-year career, Rondo has averaged 10.4 points, 4.8 rebounds and 8.5 assists. Last season, the point guard played 46 games, averaging 9.2 points and 8.0 assists in 29.8 minutes per game.
