Rajon Rondo is piling up meaningless stats for a floundering Lakers team. Dwight Powell continues to roll. What changed on a medium-size Monday that you can apply to your fantasy team down the stretch? (03-04-19)…

Rajon Rondo double-doubled with 13 points, 10 assists, six rebounds, two steals, one block and a 3-pointer in a loss to the Bucks on Tuesday.
With few healthy Laker bodies around, Rondo continues to accumulate stats with late-round production. He's an asset in assists, rebounds (for a guard) and steals, but the rest is usually ugly.

Rajon Rondo played 28 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Knicks, tallying only three points, five rebounds, five assists and a steal.
Rondo's trending down as Alex Caruso's strong play is tilting the playing time scales. His middle-round run over the last couple of weeks means that a hold is probably warranted, but that won't apply to every fantasy team. There's still assists specialist potential but if you don't need dimes, it's a tough sell.

Rajon Rondo played 37 minutes in Friday's road loss to the Pistons and had 15 points, a 3, eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three turnovers.
Rondo has had top-75 value in 9-cat over his last seven games and should be owned everywhere despite the flaws in his fantasy game. Alex Caruso had his second straight good game with 16 points, two 3s, four rebounds, two steals and a block in 24 minutes.
March 14, 2019, 10:37 pmRajon Rondo - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Rajon Rondo scored 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting while adding five rebounds, eight dimes and a steal on Thursday.
Rondo is going to put up numbers to end the season and even though he's one of the worst defenders on the team Coach Walton is set on playing him. The assist numbers are going to come with his minutes and he's worth a streaming spot as dimes are hard to find on the wire.

Rajon Rondo put up four points, seven rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and a block in 35 minutes on Wednesday but his biggest impact was made by his choice of seating as the game wound down.
With things decided, Rondo felt it would be appropriate to sit in some courtside seats that fans had vacated, a few chairs down from the bench and away from his teammates. It's atrocious behavior from a guy that the Lakers expected to provide some veteran leadership, especially with their season in a tailspin. On one of the most significant nights of LeBron James' career, Rondo couldn't resist the chance to do something selfish and stupid. He's only a late-round fantasy asset.

Rajon Rondo crushed the box score with 24 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists to go with a steal and four 3-pointers on Monday.
Rondo triple-doubled tonight but that's about the only positive thing you can take from this game. If Kyle Kuzma (ankle) and Brandon Ingram (shoulder) are going to miss more time then you might have to consider adding Rondo just because someone is going to have to get things done.

The Suns followed Milwaukee's blueprint from Friday night and let Rajon Rondo shoot at will, with the point guard finishing 1-for-10 from the field in Saturday's loss.
Rondo went 20-8-9 against the Bucks but had no such luck in Phoenix, ending the night with 4-4-4 and two steals. He's a late-round asset in 8-cat leagues who really only provides value in assists. It's a very narrow lane so whether or not he makes sense for you is a simple decision.
March 2, 2019, 1:38 amRajon Rondo - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Rajon Rondo scored 20 points to go along with nine assists, eight rebounds, two steals and four 3-pointers on a career-high 12 3-point attempts in Friday's loss to the Bucks.
Rondo's previous career high in 3-pointers attempted was seven, and he reached that mark halfway through the first quarter. Rondo was 7-for-19 from the floor, but kept his turnovers to only three. He also won't be taking that many 3-pointers normally, which hurt his field goal percentage. He should hold late-round value for the rest of the season.

Rajon Rondo says he's feeling healthy again after dealing with back pain coming out of the All-Star break.
Rondo really struggled over his previous three games before turning in a solid line on Wednesday night (11-7-16), so hopefully we get more of the latter and less of the former going forward. He'll be a late-round option for 8-cat formats but is much tougher to deploy when his turnovers are held against him. Rondo is an assists specialist who should lose a good chunk of his value when Lonzo Ball, who will be re-evaluated on Friday, returns.
February 28, 2019, 1:29 amRajon Rondo - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Rajon Rondo had a typical Rondo line on Wednesday, with 11 points, seven rebounds and 16 assists on 5-of-15 shooting in a win over the Pelicans.
He added one 3-pointer and two steals to the box score as well. Rondo is an assist specialist in deep leagues as he is outside the top-250 value over the past month even with Lonzo Ball out.
February 24, 2019, 1:21 amRajon Rondo - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Rajon Rondo logged 29 minutes off the bench on Saturday against the Pelicans, scoring seven points on 3-of-5 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, four assists, two steals and four turnovers.
Rondo has a chance at some late-round value in 8-cat leagues for however long Lonzo Ball is out.
February 12, 2019, 10:23 pmRajon Rondo - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Rajon Rondo shot 5-for-10 from the field for 13 points with seven boards, four assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes in a 117-113 loss to the Hawks on Tuesday.
Rondo also had a game-high six turnovers, which cost the Lakers dearly in an extremely sloppy game. Sitting at 28-29 heading in to the All-Star break, the Lakers could be headed for some changes either in the coaching department or the lineup. Stay tuned.
February 10, 2019, 6:16 pmRajon Rondo - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Rajon Rondo moved to the bench against the Sixers and finished Sunday's loss with no points, three rebounds and seven assists in 16 minutes.
We'll see how long this configuration lasts. Rondo is a bad defensive matchup for any of the Sixers' starters and can't really punish them on the other end either, so it could've been a matchup-based decision. Either way Rondo is only a late-round assists guy in fantasy, though he should probably be owned in all standard leagues.
February 7, 2019, 10:57 pmRajon Rondo - G - Los Angeles Lakers
Rajon Rondo scored 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting with three 3-pointers, seven rebounds and 10 assists on Thursday against the Celtics.
It was a storybook homecoming for Rondo as he drilled the game-winning shot off an offensive rebound following an atrocious Brandon Ingram shot attempt. He's handling the ball a lot and it's by design to give LeBron James some reprieve so he should be owned in all standard leagues for his dimes and steals.
