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

Rondo is scheduled to visit a specialist Monday in Philadelphia and will make a decision after that visit.

“If you want to have a mentor in this league, I would suggest him.”
