    After it was reported earlier in the day that Rajon Rondo (right calf strain) was aiming to play on Sunday, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports is reporting that Rondo is expected to sit out.

    Rondo appears to be close but that doesn't mean anything for fantasy owners. When he does return it figures to come with some minutes restrictions, and the Lakers have enough capable guards that a big role isn't guaranteed even when he gets to full strength. Rondo's only an assists specialist when he's rolling so there isn't a ton to get excited about.

    Rajon Rondo (right calf strain) is questionable for Sunday vs. the Raptors.

    Rondo is aiming to make his return and will likely play limited minutes if he plays. With the Lakers yet to figure out his spot in the rotation, he is only a streaming option if you need assists.

    Rajon Rondo (right calf strain) aims to make his season debut on Sunday against the Raptors.

    Rondo put up top-150 per-game value in his first year with the Lakers last season, playing in only 46 games and should be someone to pick up if your team needs assists. The only issue is that with the Lakers being as deep as they are at both guard spots, Rondo projects to play less than the 29.8 minutes he averaged last season. At point guard specifically, LeBron James is the current starter while Alex Caruso and Quinn Cook have both been playing well although Cook might be bumped out of the rotation upon Rondo's return.

    Rajon Rondo has been ruled of Friday's game vs. the Heat.

    Rondo has been on the shelf for a while, so there's no need to stash him just yet. Keep him on the wire but watch-list him for sure.

    Avery Bradley (bruised right leg) and Rajon Rondo (right calf strain) were non-contact participants in practice on Thursday and Bradley is questionable heading into Friday's game against the Heat while Rondo is being listed as doubtful.

    Bradley has been a big part of the Lakers rotation early on this season as he has started all six of the games that he has played. If he is ruled out, expect Alex Caruso and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to see more opportunity. Although Rondo is being listed as doubtful, it seems highly unlikely that he returns on Friday as there was another Laker beat reporter who announced that Rondo had been ruled out.

    Avery Bradley (bruised right leg) and Rajon Rondo (right calf strain) have been ruled out ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Bulls.

    With both Bradley and Rondo on the sidelines, the Lakers may insert Alex Caruso or Quinn Cook into the starting lineup. Caruso, Cook, and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope figure to get extra run against a middle-of-the-pack Bulls defense.

    Lakers coach Frank Vogel said that Rajon Rondo will not play on Tuesday due to his right calf strain.

    Rondo did participate in three-on-three drills, so his return may still come fairly soon. Alex Caruso has received more playing time in his absence. Rondo could be an interesting guy to grab once he's ready, but don't expect too much.

    Rajon Rondo has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game vs. the Spurs with a right calf strain.

    Rondo is a shaky stash in shallow leagues, given how LeBron James is quarterbacking the offense, but remains a deep-league hold, especially if the wire is worn-out thin.

    Rajon Rondo (calf) is out for Friday's game against the Mavs, but he is listed as day-to-day and is traveling with the team.

    Frank Vogel added that the team pulled him back from practicing to try and let him heal as they take it day by day. Rondo has yet to play this season. While Rondo remains out there is not a single player that hugely benefits from his absence. Continue to expect LeBron James to run the point while Avery Bradley, Quinn Cook and even Alex Caruso will continue to see time at the position. If you are still holding on to Rondo, there are probably more appealing players on the waiver wire in standard leagues.

    Rajon Rondo (mild right calf strain) has been ruled out of Tuesday's matchup with the Grizzlies.

    The Lakers continue to play it safe with their veteran PG. Avery Bradley should once again start in place of Rondo, while Quinn Cook will look to build on his 12-point and eight-assist game against the Hornets on Sunday.

    Rajon Rondo (mild right calf strain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Rondo's season debut will have to wait at least one more game. His role is expected to fluctuate between starter and reserve, and he's hard to trust as a fantasy starter at this point. Consider him an assists specialist.

    Rajon Rondo (calf soreness) will not play vs. the Hornets on Sunday.

    Coach Frank Vogel said that Rondo is still feeling discomfort and the Lakers probably feel like they don't need him against the Hornets tonight. Avery Bradley will likely draw the start at point guard yet again.

    Coach Frank Vogel said Rajon Rondo (calf) is out vs. the Jazz on Friday.

    Contrary to what coach Vogel said to the media previously, Rondo will sit out with calf soreness. Bradley is expected to start again.

    Head coach Frank Vogel told the media that when Rajon Rondo (calf) is healthy, he will start "a lot of games" in place of Avery Bradley.

    Rondo missed the season opener on Tuesday and is in doubt to miss Friday's matchup vs. the Jazz. It is best to hold onto Rondo in your redraft leagues until we see how the minutes shake out when he is fully healthy. If he misses Friday's game, expect Bradley to start once again with the possibility that Alex Caruso gets his first action of the season after being a DNP-CD on Tuesday.
