    Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Joining team 'very soon'

    Coach Frank Vogel intimated that Rajon Rondo (thumb) will join the Los Angeles Lakers in the bubble "very soon" and that the point guard will be traveling to Florida Wednesday to spend sometime outside of the bubble before entering, Bill Oram of The Athletic reports.Rondo isn't expected to get back on the floor until late August or early September, but he'll join the bubble before that to presumably do rehab work and eventually practice with the team. A more concrete timetable for his return will likely emerge once team doctors can take a better look at his thumb to see how he's progressing. In the meantime, expect Alex Caruso, Dion Waiters and J.R. Smith to continue seeing expanded roles in the backcourt.

    Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Undergoes surgery

    Rajon Rondo (thumb) underwent successful surgery Thursday, Tania Ganguli of the LA Times reports.Rondo fractured the thumb during practice on Sunday, and while he's still expected to miss six-to-eight weeks, the hope is that he could be back in the rotation sometime around the start of the second round of the playoffs. Already down Avery Bradley (personal), the Los Angeles Lakers' backcourt depth will be especially thin until Rondo is cleared to return.

    Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Out 6-to-8 weeks with fractured thumb

    Rajon Rondo sustained a right thumb fracture in practice Sunday, Mike Trudell of the Los Angeles Lakers' official site reports. He will require surgery to address the injury and is expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks.The Lakers' depth in the backcourt heading into the NBA season restart had already taken a hit after Avery Bradley (personal) opted out of joining the team in Orlando, and Rondo's injury only further compounds that. Even if he meets the short end of his recovery timeline, Rondo won't be ready to play until around late August, which is when the first or second round of the playoffs are expected to take place. While Bradley and Rondo are out of the mix, Alex Caruso (hand), Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Dion Waiters, J.R. Smith and Quinn Cook are the primary candidates to fill most of the available minutes.

    Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Swipes five versus Boston

    Rajon Rondo recorded four points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five assists, five steals and one rebound in 22 minutes during Sunday's 114-112 win over the Celtics.Rondo finished with a season high in steals while handing out at least five dimes for the third time in the last four games. Though Rondo does turn in a total dud every once in a while, he's still a decent source of assists at the very least. Furthermore, he continues to earn more minutes than fellow backup guard Alex Caruso more often than not.

    Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Production takes step down

    Rajon Rondo finished with two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in 14 minutes Wednesday in the Los Angeles Lakers' 120-116 overtime win over the Nuggets.Rondo's huge game off the bench (23 points, six assists in 27 minutes) in Monday's win over the Spurs predictably proved to be an outlier, as he saw both his playing time and productivity taper off in a more competitive matchup. Unless LeBron James misses time due to an injury or sits out games for rest purposes, it's difficult to view Rondo as anything more than an assists streamer in 12-team leagues.

    Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Runs hot off the bench

    Rajon Rondo provided 23 points (9-13 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six assists, four rebounds and a steal across 27 minutes in Monday's 125-100 win over the Suns.Rondo remains a volatile fantasy target for the Los Angeles Lakers, mostly because LeBron James' role as a floor general doesn't leave much room for a point guard to thrive. When he gets enough time on the floor, the potential is there for Rondo to ramp it up as he did Monday, drilling four threes on the way to a respectable stat line. Even though his plus-22 led the team Monday, the veteran's viability as an everyday fantasy play is still a negative-EV proposition.
