New Orleans Pelicans point guard Rajon Rondo may need surgery to repair a sports hernia, according to coach Alvin Gentry.

Rondo is scheduled to visit a specialist Monday in Philadelphia before determining whether surgery is needed.

Gentry told reporters Sunday that he did not know how long Rondo would be sidelined, saying "we'll see what happens after he sees a specialist."

Rondo, 31, suffered the injury in the first half of Friday's preseason game against the Oklahoma City Thunder and did not play Sunday against his former team, the Chicago Bulls.
