    Pelicans' Rajon Rondo: Moving back to starting five

    Rajon Rondo will start at point guard, bumping DeAndre Liggins to the bench, for Saturday's tilt against the Nets, Jim Eichenhofer of the New Orleans Pelicans' official site reports.Rondo has come off the bench over the past two contests, as coach Alvin Gentry was looking for "a spark" with the second unit. In that role, Rondo averaged 11.5 points, 9.0 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals across 27.5 minutes per game. Coach Gentry has opted to go back to his usual starting five for Saturday's matchup, however. As a starter this season, Rondo is posting 7.3 points, 7.3 assists and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 45.1 percent from the field.

    Pelicans' Rajon Rondo: Set for bench role Wednesday

    Rajon Rondo will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Pacers, Scott Kushner of The Advocate reports.According to coach Alvin Gentry, bringing Rondo off the bench is to "provide a spark" with the second unit, so this isn't some sort of disciplinary measure for him. It likely won't result in any significant decrease in playing time for Rondo and fantasy owners shouldn't be overly concerned here. In Rondo's place, DeAndre Liggins is slate to pick up the start alongside Jrue Holiday, though he's nothing more than a defensive specialist.

    Pelicans' Rajon Rondo: Scores season-high 18 points in Monday's loss

    Rajon Rondo recorded 18 points (7-13 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), eight assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 30 minutes during Monday's 133-109 loss to the Jazz.Rondo supplied a season high in scoring and made threes while falling two dimes shy of a double-double. He had not reached double figures in scoring since Jan. 10, and Rondo was averaging just 5.2 points per game over the previous 12 contests. Nevertheless, with DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) sidelined for the rest of the season, Rondo may need to be more aggressive on a regular basis going forward.

    Pelicans' Rajon Rondo: Plays 34 minutes in victory

    Rajon Rondo tallied seven points (3-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 13 assists, seven rebounds and four steals in 34 minutes during Friday's 114-100 victory over Oklahoma City.Rondo played in 34 minutes Friday, his highest since back in December. He also recorded his first double-digit assist game since January 8 against the Pistons. He has seen his playing time take a hit over the last few games, eclipsing 20 minutes in only one of his previous five games. He is a risky player to own in standard formats due to his inconsistent playing time but can be a difference maker in the assists category when afforded the opportunity.

    Pelicans' Rajon Rondo: Plays 18 minutes in Tuesday's loss

    Rajon Rondo recorded two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds, and two steals in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 114-103 loss to the Kings.Rondo watched from the bench as Ian Clark poured in a season-high 20 points and Jameer Nelson neared a double-double during a loss. Despite holding down the fort as the starting point guard, Rondo hasn't scored in double figures once over the last 10 games and hasn't dished double-digit dimes since Jan. 8. Moreover, he has earned 30-plus minutes only once during these last 10 contests, and he doesn't appear to be stepping up following the season-ending injury to DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles).

    Pelicans' Rajon Rondo: Double-doubles in Monday's win

    Rajon Rondo totaled 12 points (6-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 15 assists, four rebounds and two steals across 32 minutes in Monday's 115-112 win over the Pistons.Rondo was outstanding as a ball distributor, helping three other first-unit mates to double-digit point totals while posting double-digit dimes for the first time 2018. The veteran guard has three consecutive double-digit point totals as well to open the new calendar year, and he's shot between 45.5 and 60.0 percent in the last four contests overall.

    Pelicans' Rajon Rondo: Posts 12 points in win

    Rajon Rondo contributed 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists across 15 minutes in Wednesday's 108-98 win over the Jazz.It was an interesting stat line for Rondo, who saw his fewest amount of minutes since Dec. 19 and yet posted his first double-digit scoring effort of the last nine games. Meanwhile, his assists were unusually low, although the downturn is largely explained by the lack of playing time. The veteran point guard continues to be a prolific supplier of dimes on many nights, and he remains capable of double-digit scoring contributions in games when the flow of the defense funnels shooting opportunities to him.
