Rajon Rondo has been diagnosed with a non-displaced volar plate avulsion fracture to his right ring finger and is expected to be out four-to-five days.
Rondo suffered the injury in Saturday's victory over the Thunder. X-rays at the arena came back negative, but an MRI on Monday revealed the fracture. This seems like a short term injury only but it makes it hard to keep Rondo in standard leagues.

Anthony Davis (glute) and Rajon Rondo (right finger strain) are questionable for Monday's game against the Cavs.
Davis has missed the last two games after taking a hard fall against the Knicks, and the fact that he was able to travel with the team on their short road trip is a good sign. If AD returns to action it'll be hard to trust Kyle Kuzma as a fantasy option. Rondo is coming off a big game on Saturday, so hopefully he doesn't miss time.

Rajon Rondo was fantastic in Saturday's 125-100 win over the Thunder, as he chipped in 21 points, 12 rebounds, eight assists, one steal with just two turnovers.
The 21 points are a season-high as he also took 22 shots from the field. This was the most shots that he has attempted this season and should not be seen as the norm, as the Lakers were without their primary scorers and play-makers. Regardless, Rondo is a solid add for teams looking for steals and assists.

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.

Rajon Rondo started on Sunday against the Nuggets with LeBron James out and put up five points and eight assists in 28 minutes.
Rondo shot 2-of-8 from the floor and added four rebounds and three steals to the stat sheet. He is an assists and steals specialist for deeper leagues.

Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley will get to start, while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will shift to the bench as a result of LeBron James' being out for Sunday's tilt with the Nuggets.
Rondo will get to create more assists, while Bradley should be firing more 3-pointers, and Caldwell-Pope will be expected to bring the defensive intensity in James' absence. They all stand to earn more minutes on Sunday.

LeBron James (thoracic muscle strain) is doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Nuggets.
The injury popped up out of nowhere and James did not participate in practice on Saturday. If James is forced to sit out Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Danny Green and Rajon Rondo will all see increased usage and minutes and be viable streaming and DFS options.

Rajon Rondo (left hamstring strain) is probable to face the Bucks on Thursday.
Rondo has produced top 136/154 per-game value so far this year. He is a low-end point guard who can help fantasy teams in assists and steals.

Rajon Rondo (left hamstring) played on Tuesday night and corralled seven points, five rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Rondo played 26 minutes and can be treated as an assists specialist and a back-end value in standard formats for the time being. If you don't need dimes, however, his appeal basically vanishes.

Rajon Rondo (left hamstring strain) is considered probable to play on Tuesday.
Rondo had a well-rounded line in Sunday's victory over the Hawks and his minutes limit rose as well. He could be someone to monitor if Frank Vogel uses him more going forward.

We saw the good version of Rajon Rondo on Sunday during the Lakers-Hawks game, as he went for 11 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.
This was a classic Rondo game as he threw contributions together throughout the box score over 26 minutes. In his previous game he shot horribly, and his jumper will ultimately how large of a roll he is able to play on the Lakers. He is still just an assist resource for the time being, but don't be afraid to make the pickup if his playing time was to increase into the 30s on a regular basis. On a deep Lakers roster that won't be simple.

Rajon Rondo (left hamstring strain) will have his minutes limit increased to 25 on Sunday vs. the Hawks.
There isn't much noteworthy here. Rondo already played 24 minutes in the last one after returning from his hamstring pull and there is not much evidence to suggest that Rondo deserves much more than that allotment of minutes at this stage of his career. He's useful as an assists streamer, but it has become increasingly more difficult to rely on him to even provide consistent output in that one category.

Rajon Rondo (left hamstring strain) returned to action on Friday after a two-game absence with no points, two rebounds, four assists and one steal in 24 minutes.
Rondo missed all five field goal attempts and should see better days. His playing time and game availability should remain inconsistent all year but outside of all that, he is putting up top-150 standard league per-game value with 7.9 points, 5.7 assists, 1.4 triples and 1.0 steals so he can provide some value if you need a spot start or some assists in your lineup.
