Mavericks lose Parsons and possibly Rondo for playoffs

By  | 

DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks, down 0-2 to Houston in their first-round playoff series, will be without Chandler Parsons for the rest of the season because of a right knee injury.

The Mavericks may be without Rajon Rondo, too.

Dallas said Wednesday that Parsons is looking at surgery options. He didn't play in Tuesday night's Game 2 loss.

The Mavericks also said Rondo sustained a back injury in Game 2, "is out indefinitely and is seeking additional medical opinions."

Rondo sat for all but the first 34 seconds of the second half. During Wednesday's press conference, Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle said Rondo would not be with the team while he was seeking those medical options.
