Rajon Rondo played just 24 minutes and was benched down the stretch of the Bulls’ 90-85 win over the Pacers on Monday.
Rondo finished with two points on 1-of-6 shooting, nine boards and five assists. He wasn’t good last year and he’s not good this year, so making him ride the pine for guys like Jerian Grant (10 points, three boards, two steals, two threes) isn’t the worst idea. From a fantasy perspective, he still has a good shot at being a mid-to-late round value in 8- and 9-cat leagues but if it looks like this too often we might have to revisit that. Dwyane Wade had 21 points, three boards, five assists, two steals and two blocks in the SEGABABA.
