LeBron: Lakers need 'next man up' mentality with Rondo out (0:25)

The loss of Rajon Rondo is significant. He fractured his right third metacarpal. The Lakers lose a vet who was at times their best point guard. He stabilized the second unit with his play and at times was the finishing point guard on the floor. Behind the scenes, Rondo was a valuable leader and constant voice in the ears of the younger Lakers. He'll still be able to do that from the bench but the Lakers could turn to Brandon Ingram to handle backup point guard duties a bit more.
