Rodriguez agreed to a deal with CSKA Moscow until 2020, freelance reporter David Pick reports.
The former Euroleague MVP will return overseas to continue his professional basketball career. He held a significant role with the 76ers last season, posting 7.8 points and 5.1 assists across 22.3 minutes per game. While the 31-year-old may have been able to garner a small roster spot on an NBA team, it appears that he will be going back overseas to be a legitimate contributor while in the late years of his prime. It seems doubtful at this point, however, that he will return to the NBA.
Rodriguez (hamstring) will not play in any of the team's remaining three games, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The 76ers have opted to shut down the veteran guard due to a nagging hamstring injury. The issue has caused him to miss the previous six games. Rodriguez was a surprise this season, as he returned off a six year absence from the league. He will finish the season with averages averages of 7.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, 5.1 dimes, 0.7 steals, and 1.4 triples across 22.3 minutes per game.
Rodriguez (hamstring) is expected to go through one-on-one drills during the 76ers' practice Friday, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "It's feeling better," Rodriguez said of the strained left hamstring that has cost him the last six games. "But the injury is kind of tricky because you never know when you are 100 percent."
Rodriguez's activity should present with the 76ers to formally evaluate him in advance of Saturday's game against the Bucks, but he'll likely need to show he's close to 100 percent healthy to have a shot at playing in the contest. Even if he's cleared to return, Rodriguez's status as the clear backup to starting point guard T.J. McConnell would likely result in him playing no more than 20 minutes Saturday, thereby limiting his DFS upside.
Rodriguez (hamstring) has been ruled out for both Tuesday's game against the Nets and Thursday's game against the Bulls, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Rodriguez was already expected to miss Tuesday's game, but the Sixers are now tacking on at least one more outing before reevaluating him over the weekend. With the season winding down and the Sixers ruled out of playoff contention, there's a growing belief that he could be shut down for the season, although nothing official has been reported indicating such. Look for T.J. McConnell to see a few extra minutes over the next two contests, while Nik Stauskas operates as the backup at both point guard and shooting guard.
Rodriguez (hamstring) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Nets.
After missing the last week of action with the left hamstring strain, Rodriguez is apparently still hurting after the 76ers reevaluated him Monday, so he'll be sidelined for a fifth consecutive game. With only four games remaining on the 76ers' schedule after Tuesday, Rodriguez could be at risk of being sidelined for all of those contests if he fails to show improvement in the coming days. Rodriguez's absence will enable starting point guard T.J. McConnell to pick up a few extra minutes, while Nik Stauskas settles in as the top reserve option at both guard spots.
Rodriguez (hamstring) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Nets and is expected to be reevaluated in a week, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Rodriguez strained his left hamstring during Sunday's game against the Pacers and was considered questionable heading into Tuesday, but the 76ers decided to shelve him temporarily in order to give him ample time to recover. If that timetable holds true, Rodriguez will miss the next four games, with his next opportunity to return coming April 4 against the Nets. With Rodriguez out, Nik Stauskas is expected to serve as both the top backup point guard and shooting guard, so he should be in line for an increase in playing time in the interim, as will starting point guard T.J. McConnell.
Rodriguez is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Nets due to a sore left hamstring.
The issue isn't believed to be anything serious, though the 30-year-old underwent a precautionary MRI to ensure he's not dealing with anything more severe. Look for the Sixers to reevaluate Rodriguez closer to the 7:30 p.m. ET tip off, at which point an official call on his status will be made. If Rodriguez is held out, T.J. McConnell would be set for a heavy workload as the team's only healthy, true point guard. According toJessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia, coach Brett Brown noted that in addition to his normal role as the primary backup at shooting guard, Nik Stauskas would also serve as the backup point guard if Rodriguez is out.
Rodriguez posted 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt), seven assists, four rebounds and a steal over 22 minutes off the bench in Friday's 117-107 win against the Bulls.
Rodriguez has been seeing a steady amount of playing time in Philly, but he has just eight total double-digit point totals over his past 24 outings. He is a cheap source of assists for fantasy owners in deeper rotisserie formats, but he isn't dependable in most other categories.
Rodriguez supplied five points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt), eight assists and three rebounds across 24 minutes in a 112-98 loss to the Bucks on Monday.
With the 76ers down 23 points after three quarters, the team's reserves received some more burn than usual Monday, as Rodriguez matched starting point guard T.J. McConnell in playing time. Rodriguez's spot in the 76ers rotation looks secure for the rest of the season with Ben Simmons (foot) ruled out, but the Spaniard will struggle to bring value outside of deeper leagues, despite his upward trend in playing time lately. He's averaging 7.6 points, 5.0 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.4 three-pointers in 23.2 minutes per game over his last five contests.
Rodriguez generated eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and four assists across 12 minutes in a 105-99 win over the Hornets on Monday.
Rodriguez was quite productive on a per-minute basis, but he's still not seeing enough time to carry value even in most deeper leagues. The Spaniard has seen fewer than 20 minutes in 10 consecutive games, averaging 6.7 points, 2.9 assists, 1.4 three-pointers and 1.3 rebounds during that span. His value will diminish even further once Ben Simmons (foot) returns after the All-Star break.
Rodriguez will operate as the backup point guard Tuesday against the Clippers, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Rodriguez fell out of the rotation completely on Saturday against the Hawks, not even seeing a minute of action. However, he'll return to the rotation Tuesday and is expected to back up T.J. McConnell at point guard, which could push him to playing time closer to the 20-minute mark. That said, Rodriguez's value remains cloudy and it may be a situation to avoid for the time being.
Rodriguez returned to the bench and scored four points (2-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT) while adding seven rebounds and four assists in 19 minutes during Wednesday's 94-89 win over the Raptors.
Rodriguez is not a particularly good rebounder, and so his high total in that category should be considered unusual. Even in limited minutes, he can be a good source of assists, but when he's playing less than 20 minutes a game, he is only really an option in very deep leagues. TJ McConnell (wrist) has the starting job right now, and as long as that is the case, Rodriguez is not worth rostering in most settings.
Rodriguez will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Rodriguez drew the start in Monday's game against the Bucks with T.J. McConnell (wrist) sitting out, posting 10 points, seven rebounds, and six assists across 32 minutes. With McConnell healthy and returning to the starting five, Rodriguez will head to the bench and could see his playing time drop into the mid-to-low 20's, which greatly hurts his fantasy potential.
Rodriguez is expected to start at point guard Monday against the Bucks.
Following a three-game absence due to a sprained left ankle, Rodriguez lost out on the starting point guard gig to T.J. McConnell. While Rodriguez has come off the bench in four straight contests, he's seen his minutes increase in each successive game, and he'll likely have an opportunity to reenter the starting five and take on an even larger workload with McConnell (wrist) being ruled out Monday. The severity of McConnell's injury isn't known, but Rodriguez may be worth a speculative pickup on a short-term basis. If Rodriguez fares well in Monday's contest, he could end up permanently displacing McConnell as the starter at the position. Chasson Randle is expected to serve as Rodriguez's primary backup Monday.
Rodriguez (ankle) came off the bench and supplied four points (2-6 FG) and three assists in 12 minutes during a 105-95 win over the Nets on Sunday.
Coach Brett Brown stated before the game that he wanted to ease Rodriguez back in after the point guard missed the previous three games with a sprained left ankle, and he did just that by bringing Rodriguez off the bench in limited fashion. T.J. McConnell, meanwhile, continued to start at point guard, and though he saw a robust 36 minutes and contributed eight boards and six assists, he was held to four points on 2-of-11 shooting from the field. The minutes distribution should be more even between the two point guards Wednesday against the Knicks, though it's uncertain if Rodriguez will reclaim the starting role he's held for most of the season.
Rodriguez (ankle) is available to play in Sunday's game against the Nets, but will come off the bench, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Rodriguez has missed the last three games with a left ankle sprain, but after showing improvement over the weekend, he'll be good to go for the Sunday afternoon tilt. However, perhaps as a means of easing Rodriguez back into the fold, coach Brett Brown will stash him on the second unit, allowing T.J. McConnell to make his fourth straight start. McConnell, who dished out a career-high 17 assists in Friday's loss to the Celtics, is expected to take on a starter's workload again, but the playing-time distribution could become more even between him and Rodriguez in the subsequent games to come. The 76ers point guard situation remains worth tracking for the next several days to see whether McConnell or Rodriguez ultimately assumes the larger portion of the workload.
Rodriguez (ankle) won't play in Friday's tilt against the Celtics.
Rodriguez was initially considered probable to play Friday before being listed as questionable and only recently being ruled out. This will be the third straight contest the guard has missed. T.J. McConnell started in Rodriguez's place the past two games and figures to do so once again. Rodriguez's next chance to play will be against the Nets on Sunday.
Rodriguez (ankle) is now listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Celtics, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia reports.
The 76ers were viewing Rodriguez as probable after he was a partial participant in Thursday's practice, but his downgraded status following Friday's morning shootaround suggests it's no longer a given that the point guard will return from a two-game absence. In the event Rodriguez is ultimately cleared to play as game time approaches, he'd likely be used in a fairly even timeshare with T.J. McConnell at point guard. However, if Rodriguez remains sidelined, McConnell would draw his third straight start and would likely be in line for a 35-to-40-minute workload at the position.
Rodriguez (ankle) took part in portions of Thursday's practice and is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Celtics.
Rodriguez has missed the last two games with a left ankle sprain, but after taking part in portions of practice Thursday, it appears he should be good to go against the Celtics on Friday. T.J. McConnell has filled in as the team's starting point guard, but will likely head back to the bench and should see a drop in playing time if Rodriguez is ultimately cleared as expected.
Rodriguez (ankle) won't play Tuesday against the Timberwolves.
As expected, Rodriguez will remain out for the second straight game as he continues to nurse a sprained left ankle. Expect T.J. McConnell to make another start at point guard Tuesday after he filled in with 17 points and eight assists in 36 minutes in a loss Friday to the Nuggets.
