    Rajon Rondo (fractured right ring finger) will be available to face the Celtics on Monday.

    Rondo hasn't played since January 11. Quinn Cook and Alex Caruso should see their roles diminish now that he has returned. However, Rondo does not deliver consistent value on such a deep team.

    Alex Caruso (head) is upgraded from probable to available against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Caruso played only four minutes in Wednesday's game before being ruled out after taking a shot in the mouth. He might be in line for some extra minutes with Rajon Rondo out but does not really do enough on the stat sheet to get recognition in standard leagues.

    Alex Caruso's latest concussion evaluation went positively and he's probable for Saturday's game.

    Caruso had to leave Wednesday's game but has passed all of his concussion tests thereafter. Rajon Rondo's impending return should eliminate Caruso's fantasy appeal, but at least he's still on the All-Star vote leaderboards.

    Alex Caruso's concussion test was inconclusive on Wednesday after he took a shot to the mouth and has been ruled out for the rest of the gme.

    Caruso played just four minutes and was scoreless on 0-for-2 shooting but did manage to record a steal and a block. He's not on fantasy radars right now and can be left on the wire.

    Alex Caruso got hit in the face during a play on Wednesday and headed to the locker room to get it checked out.

    Hopefully, Caruso is not out of this one. He has a nice shot at some value with Rajon Rono (finger) out.

    Rajon Rondo strained his finger on his right hand on Saturday and is day-to-day.

    Rondo's X-rays came back negative so it is looking like he won't miss much time. Alex Caruso could see a boost in value while Rondo is out, but he's only a streamer in deeper leagues.

    Alex Caruso (right calf tightness) is expected to suit up for the Lakers-Pistons clash on Sunday.

    Throw him into the lineup for deep league owners out there. It could turn into a blowout in swift fashion, and that would give Caruso some extended run if his right calf is not flaring up.

    Alex Caruso is heading for a true game-time decision as the team assesses how his right calf tightness responds to his warmup routine before Sunday's matchup with the Pistons.

    Caruso has not been able to emerge as a regular contributor for the Lakers this season and is only relevant for the deepest of leagues at this point. He has not bee able to carve out much production even when he gets over 20 minutes a game.

    Alex Caruso (right calf tightness) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Friday.

    Caruso hasn't been very impactful in fantasy this season and the Lakers are still looking for point guard help via trade or Darren Collison so his role could be even more diminished soon. He's not worth holding onto right now.

    Alex Caruso is questionable for Friday's game due to right calf tightness.

    Caruso played just four minutes in the last game before having to leave with the calf injury. He's been a low-impact player in fantasy and is a marginal hold in 20-team leagues or deeper.

    Alex Caruso suffered a calf injury on Wednesday and did not return after playing only four minutes and missing his only shot.

    Caruso has not been fantasy-relevant lately, so he won't be missed too much outside of his diehard cult following.

    Alex Caruso had a well-rounded performance with 11 points on 4-of-8 FGs, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes in a loss to the Pacers on Tuesday.

    Caruso led the Lakers in plus-minus tonight with a plus-9. He can produce a little of everything given enough minutes, but his role has been too inconsistent. Keep Caruso in mind if you need a steals streamer, but that's about all he's good for unless the Lakers are short a few guards.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo (left hamstring strain) is officially questionable ahead of Friday's tilt vs. the Heat.

    Rondo was a game-time decision heading into Wednesday's game against the Magic. He ultimately sat out that contest which allowed Alex Caruso to see 28 minutes in the game. If Rondo is forced to miss another game, expect more minutes from Caruso off the bench.

    Kyle Kuzma (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Friday's matchup against the Heat.

    Kuzma missed Wednesday's contest with this ankle injury and Jared Dudley saw a significant increase in minutes in the game. Avery Bradley, Alex Caruso and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope could also all see a few extra minutes if Kuzma sits out again.

    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest vs. the Magic as he nurses a strained hamstring.

    Rondo has the potential to produce value worthy of the last spot on your roster in standard leagues, while he has slightly more value in 8-cat leagues. Alex Caruso will continue to see more opportunity if Rondo misses the game while Avery Bradley will see about 15 minutes in his first game back from injury.
