  • Rondo will likely play between 20-to-24 minutes in Friday's game against the Nuggets, Pelicans radio broadcaster Daniel Sallerson reports. Rondo recently returned from a 12-game absence due to a sports hernia and has played in just 19 total minutes between the two games he's played since coming back. So, it looks like with the sharp increase in minutes Friday that the point guard is nearly back to full health, which means Jameer Nelson will likely continue to see his workload reduced.

  • Pelicans' Rajon Rondo: Will start Wednesday

    Rondo will draw the start for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports New Orleans reports. Though he'll be starting, Rondo is still expected to see just 14-16 minutes of action Wednesday as the team looks to ease him back into shape and the rotation. For that reason, he makes for a very risky DFS option. With Rondo's return, Jameer Nelson seems like the most probable candidate to see a reduction in workload. We should get a better idea of the team's rotation once Rondo begins seeing true starter's minutes, however.

  • Rondo, according to coach Alvin Gentry, will "probably" play 14-16 minutes Wednesday against the Raptors. Rondo made his regular-season debut Monday following sports hernia surgery, playing just five minutes and posting two points and two assists. He'll see more run Wednesday, however, as he and the team look to gauge his health. His eventual return to full strength will probably mean fewer minutes for the likes of Jameer Nelson and possibly E'Twaun Moore, as Jrue Holiday will often shift to shooting guard.

  • Rondo collected two points (1-1 FG) and two assists across five minutes during his season debut Monday against the Hawks. Rondo has been out since early October battling a sports hernia. The Pelicans will likely take it slow with him because he's currently ahead of schedule in his recovery. When he's back at full strength, the veteran projects to be an every day starter.

  • Pelicans' Rajon Rondo: Available Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rondo (sports hernia) is available for Monday's game against the Hawks, but he is not expected to log more than six minutes. Rondo was originally targeting a return Friday against the Nuggets, so he appears to be slightly ahead of schedule. However, it looks like the Pelicans are just going to really ease the veteran point guard into the swing of things, as his current minute restriction takes away any potential fantasy value. Still, he will look to start building a rapport with Pelicans big men Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins.
