Rajon Rondo has been ruled out of Saturday’s game with the Rockets for rest purposes and Alvin Gentry says that DeAndre Liggins will likely draw into the starting five.
The Pels have a back-to-back and face Boston tomorrow, so Rondo should be fresh as a daisy for that matchup. Liggins is not a fantasy option in any format and is not even a lock to exceed 18 minutes tonight. Jrue Holiday should get a nice boost with more ball-handling duties headed his way but it’s not like you needed extra convincing to get him in your lineups tonight.
