Lakers guard Rajon Rondo fractured his hand and is going to be out for 3-5 weeks after undergoing surgery to fix it. Fantasy owners will be looking to replace his 8.5 points, 6.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game. With that said, here is a look at three potential NBA fantasy streaming options for the Los Angeles Lakers guard.

With Chris Levert out for an undetermined amount of time, Hollis-Jefferson will likely fill in. In 27 minutes in the game which saw the Nets lose LeVert, RHJ put up 14 points, six rebounds, five assists, three steals and a block. He's a good add. 

2. Trevor Ariza - SF - Phoenix Suns

Averaging 10.2 points, 3.4 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game, he might not match up with Rondo's output, but Ariza's averaging 33.5 minutes per game. It may not be sexy adding a player on the worst offense in the NBA but Ariza could fill in nicely for the time being.

Green is averaging 9.5 points and about a block per game. We know he's dangerous from beyond the arc and, more than likely, he's available in your league. He can also add some boards for good measure as he's averaged 4.5 rebounds through 14 games this season.
