  • Rondo recorded 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt), 12 rebounds, and 12 assists in 42 minutes during Monday's 130-123 loss to the Rockets. Rondo posted his first triple-double with the Pelicans in this his 14th appearance. While he committed eight turnovers, Rondo finished with season highs in rebounding and made threes while scoring exactly 13 points for the fourth time in 2017-18. He had been taking such good care of the ball prior to Monday, as he was averaging just 1.6 giveaways per game entering the evening. Monday's turnover troubles aside, Rondo has four double-doubles and one triple-double through six appearances this month, and he seems primed to be a major contributor in an uptempo offense if he can stay healthy going forward.

  • Rondo scored 13 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go with two rebounds, 18 assists, five steals and one block across 37 minutes in Sunday's 131-124 win against Philadelphia. Rondo collected a season-high 18 assists in a season-high 37 minutes on Sunday. Over his last five games, the guard is averaging 11.8 points, 11.4 assists and 5.2 rebounds. Rondo has collected at least 10 assists in four out of his last five games. For the season, he is averaging 8.1 assists through 13 games. The New Orleans guard also contributed significantly on the defensive end with a season-high five steals to top off an overflowing stat sheet against Philadelphia.

  • Rondo will return to the lineup for Sunday's game against the Sixers. Rondo received the night off for rest Friday, as the Pelicans looked to limit his workload a bit after dealing with a sports hernia to start the year. However, as expected, Rondo will just be given a one-game layoff and is set to rejoin the lineup Sunday. Look for Rondo to take on his usual role as the team's starting point guard and he could potentially even see a few more minutes than normal with backup point guard Jameer Nelson (ankle) likely sitting out.

  • Rondo will be rested for Friday's game against the Kings. Rondo has started 12 straight games since returning from a sports hernia, but he'll get the night off as the Pelicans look to keep the veteran fresh. He's held his own since returning, compiling averages of 7.0 points, 7.3 assists and 3.8 rebounds across 23.9 minutes per game. Ian Clark will draw the start in his place Friday.

  • Pelicans' Rajon Rondo: Double-doubles in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rondo finished with 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt), 11 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes during Monday's 125-115 loss to the Warriors. Rondo was able to put up his third consecutive double-double, while matching his season-high of two three-pointers. He has looked a lot better over the past three games, as he learns to play alongside his new teammates. Unfortunately, Anthony Davis (groin) could miss some time and Rondo will have to wait to build on that relationship. He is not going to put up a lot of points, but he should still be owned in standard leagues for his upside in assists, steals, and rebounds from the guard position.
