Pelicans point guard Rajon Rondo will be examined to determine whether surgery is required after being diagnosed with a sports hernia, coach Alvin Gentry told the media before Sunday's (Monday, PHL time) preseason victory over the Bulls.

Rondo is slated to see a specialist in Philadelphia on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). There is no immediate timetable for his return.

Rondo was injured during Friday's (Saturday, PHL time) loss to the Thunder. The veteran guard is entering his first season with the Pelicans after signing a one-year deal during the offseason. He had five points and eight assists in his lone preseason appearance with the team so far.
