    Rajon Rondo played 26 minutes off the bench in Saturday's win over the Grizzlies and ended up scoring 14 points, while chipping in five rebounds, six assists, two steals and one turnover.

    Rondo did not have to compete with teammate Alex Caruso (right calf strain) and was able to log 26 minutes tonight. He was able to provide a full stat line tonight and tease potential fantasy managers with what he can still provide to teams. Ultimately, Rondo's value resides with the minutes he is given and is more of a streaming option than a league player.

    Alex Caruso (right calf strain) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Grizzlies.

    He could be resting with it being the second half of a back-to-back, but we should have clearer news during Sunday's practice. Rajon Rondo should see a few more minutes after being ejected from yesterday's game.

    Alex Caruso (right calf strain) is being listed as doubtful to face the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Caruso played through the injury on Thursday so hopefully this is not a reaggravation and only a back-to-back situation. He is not on the standard league radar playing only 20.0 minutes per game this season as Quinn Cook may see an uptick in minutes if Caruso does sit.

    Rajon Rondo was ejected from Friday's game vs. the Thunder after being assessed with a flagrant 2 foul.

    He leaves the game after playing 18 minutes where he recorded two points, two steals, one rebound and four assists. Rondo is just an assists streamer at this point.

    Rajon Rondo handed out 10 assists to go with eight points, two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes off the bench vs. the Thunder on Tuesday.

    Rondo shot just 3-of-10 from the field and 1-of-2 from the line. His percentages have traditionally been harmful to fantasy teams, but his rebounds, assists and steals continue to pile up even as his minutes dip as he's nearing age 34. At this point, he's just a streamer for those categories, but remember that he averaged over eight assists the past two seasons. If he were to find himself regularly getting 30 minutes per game, there's probably a team in every fantasy league that could use him.

    Rajon Rondo played well on Sunday as he put up 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting in a blowout win over the Hawks.

    Rondo played 24 minutes, which is a season-high. He knocked down two 3-pointers and added three assists to the stat sheet. Alex Caruso played 21 minutes and had 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting. Rondo will likely be the preferred option of the two when his minutes restriction is lifted, but neither guy is worth owning in standard formats.

    Rajon Rondo logged 18 minutes on Friday night, turning in three rebounds, four assists and a steal.

    Rondo played less than Alex Caruso and is off limits in fantasy until he's clear of his minutes cap. Tonight he came up short of the 20-minute limit, but when he's all full strength there might be assist specialist appeal.

    Rajon Rondo will be held to 20 minutes on Friday.

    Rondo sat out Wednesday after logging 14 minutes in his season debut on Tuesday. He's certainly not worth a look in standard leagues until he gets healthy but it's likely that he grabs enough assists to maintain specialist appeal once he hits full strength. Rondo isn't a recommended option in general but if you need assists, he'll be there for you.

    Rajon Rondo, who made his season debut on Tuesday, will not play on Wednesday against the Warriors.

    Rondo was on a 15-minute limit on Tuesday and the Lakers will rest him on the second leg of their back-to-back. He looked good against the Suns dishing out seven assists, grabbing six rebounds and scoring five points and it’s likely he makes himself relevant in standard leagues.

    Rajon Rondo (calf) made his season debut on Tuesday, dishing out seven assists, grabbing six rebounds and scoring five points with one trey in 14 minutes.

    Last month, Frank Vogel said Rondo will start a lot of games at point guard this season. He probably won't get as many minutes as he did the last two seasons, but remember that he did average at least eight assists in both of those years. He'll be an attractive assists streamer, if not more, once he's up to speed.

    Rajon Rondo will return on Tuesday vs. the Suns after missing the start of the season due to a calf injury.

    Rondo will likely be eased into the rotation so don't expect him to play big minutes in his first game back. Rondo may have value in standard leagues this year but it would be safer to proceed with a wait-and-see approach. His value will come from assists and steals.

    The Lakers have upgraded Rajon Rondo (calf) to probable for Tuesday's matchup with the Suns.

    Rondo must have looked good in shootaround and will make his 2019-20 season debut on Tuesday. He is likely to be eased back into the lineup with all of the depth tht the Lakers have, but could eventually work his way into the starting lineup. He is more of a wait-and-see guy unless you are desperate for assists.

    Per Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet, Rajon Rondo (right calf strain) is set to make his season debut on Tuesday against the Suns if he can make it through shootaround without any setbacks.

    It is still not a guarantee that Rondo will be back on Tuesday, but it's trending in that direction. If Rondo is able to return he'll likely see limited minutes until he proves his health.

    Rajon Rondo (right calf strain) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

    Rondo was hoping to make his season debut on Sunday but was eventually ruled out. His minutes are likely to be limited at first even when he does return.

    Rajon Rondo (right calf strain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Raptors.

    Rondo has yet to play in a game this season and was aiming for today as his return. His return is right around the corner, but don't go rushing to your waiver wire unless you are in need of assists.
