Rajon Rondo is set to make his return to the Los Angeles Lakers' lineup this Thursday.

Rondo has missed the last 14 games after undergoing surgery on his right finger. 

Brandon Ingram added that the team missed Rondo's leadership.

"It gives us a leader, a leader on the basketball floor. Puts us in our spots on the offensive end. Pushes the pace, he can score the basketball. And it just makes our team better," said Ingram.
