Hawks' Rajon Rondo: Joining Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo has agreed to a two-year, $15 million contract with the Hawks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Rondo will join a crowded point guard rotation with Trae Young and Kris Dunn, though it's possible coach Lloyd Pierce will look to play multiple point guards at once occasionally. With the Lakers last season, Rondo saw 20.5 minutes per game, averaging 7.1 points, 5.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds. That wasn't enough to make him relevant in standard fantasy leagues, so we shouldn't expect that to change in Atlanta.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Expected to opt out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo is expected to opt out of his contract with the Lakers, Chris Sheridan of BasketballNews.com reports.

The veteran point guard has a $2.62 million player option with the Lakers for next season, and it's not a major surprise to see he's expected to test the waters in free agency. A return to the Lakers with a higher salary would make sense after he played a pivotal role off the bench during the title run, though a return isn't guaranteed. Rondo averaged 8.9 points, 6.6 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 24.7 minutes while shooting 40 percent on three-pointers over 16 playoff games.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Impressive performance off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo delivered 19 points (8-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and a steal in 30 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 106-93 win over the Heat in Game 6 of the 2020 NBA Finals.

Rondo came off the bench during the entire title run, but he made a huge impact and Game 6 wasn't the exception -- the veteran point guard only trailed LeBron James and Anthony Davis in scoring, and he posted six double-digit scoring performances during the playoffs while also shooting an impressive 40 percent from deep in 16 playoff contests. The veteran became the second player in NBA history to win a title with both the Celtics and the Lakers.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Dishes out 10 dimes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo registered 16 points (5-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 assists and four rebounds in 26 minutes off the bench during Friday's 124-114 win over the Heat in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Rondo has been a reliable contributor for the Lakers during the current postseason run and the Lakers have gone 10-2 since his playoff debut. Rondo posted his second double-double of the current postseason run and is averaging 9.5 points and 7.2 assists per game while shooting an impressive 44.7 percent from three-point range -- for his standards -- in only 24.4 minutes per game so far.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Big minute total in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo finished with nine points (4-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-3 FT), eight assists, three steals and two rebounds in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 114-106 loss to Denver.

Rondo played key minutes down the stretch for the Lakers, almost guiding them to an unlikely victory. After trailing by as much as 20 points, the Lakers rattled off a 19-2 run to get within one basket late in the game. Rondo turned back the clock during this stretch, garnering three steals in a matter of minutes. Some hot shooting from Jamal Murray thwarted the Lakers' efforts and we will now go to Game 4 with the series certainly alive and well.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Nine assists in Game 2 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo had three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3PT), nine assists, and four rebounds in Sunday's Game 2 win over the Nuggets.

Rondo's nine assists were a team high, though he did commit five costly turnovers on a night when the Lakers' bench accounted for 11 giveaways. The veteran also registered nine assists in Game 1 after averaging 7.0 assists per game during the Lakers' Round 2 series against Houston.

September 19, 2020 08:24 PM
Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Probable for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (back) is probable for Sunday's Game 2 against the Nuggets.

Rondo was questionable due to back spasms for Game 1, but he ended up playing and posting seven points, nine assists, two steals and one rebound in 22 minutes during the 12-point victory. He'll likely suit up in Game 2 and continue to be relied upon as a facilitator of the offense.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Hands out nine dimes in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo totaled seven points (3-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt), nine assists, two steals and one rebound in 22 minutes during Friday's 126-114 victory over the Nuggets.

Rondo played through an ongoing back concern, coming within striking distance of a double-double in just 22 minutes of playing time. The veteran point guard certainly adds an element of calmness to the Lakers, especially on the offensive end of the floor. His presence allows LeBron James to take a few plays off from time-to-time, thus leaving James fresh during the clutch moments. While there were no such moments during this game, the fact Rondo was able to play 22 minutes and appeared untroubled certainly bodes well for the rest of the series.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (back) will be available without any minute restrictions in Friday's Game 1 against the Nuggets, Mark Medina of USA Today reports.

Rondo has established himself as an important piece off the bench, so his availability will be advantageous for the Lakers. He averaged 10.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 2.0 steals across 26.6 minutes in five minutes against the Rockets during the previous series.

September 18, 2020 09:24 AM
Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Questionable for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo is questionable for Friday's Game 1 against the Nuggets due to back spasms.

This is significant news for the Lakers, as Rondo established himself as one of the team's most important players during the series against the Rockets. If he ends up sidelined for Game 1, it'd likely result in more usage for the likes of Alex Caruso, J.R. Smith and Kyle Kuzma.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Impresses off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo scored 21 points (8-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding nine assists, two rebounds and a steal in 30 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's Game 3 win over the Rockets.

Rondo made quite an impact for the Lakers off the bench in Game 3, shooting accurately on route to a 21-point performance -- just the third time he topped the 20-point plateau this season -- while dishing out nine dimes for the second straight contest. The veteran point guard is averaging 13.0 points, 7.3 assists and 2.7 steals per game in three games against the Rockets and, even though his scoring figures are bound to regress at some point, he should remain an impactful player off the bench if he keeps orchestrating plays as he's done over the past two contests.

September 5, 2020 06:04 PM
Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Probable for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (back) is probable for Sunday's Game 2 against the Rockets.

Rondo made his first appearance in the bubble during the Game 1 loss, posting eight points, four assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block in 25 minutes. He should be available for Game 2.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Plays 25 minutes in return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo finished with eight points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block in Friday's 112-97 loss to the Rockets.

Rondo came off the bench for the Lakers on Friday, playing in his first game of NBA basketball since early March. The playing time was a little surprising given the extended layoff, although the Lakers clearly need all the help they can get in terms of facilitation, barring LeBron James of course. Rondo is unlikely to be putting up huge numbers on most nights but can certainly contribute on both ends of the floor at times.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Available off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (back) will be available off the bench for Friday's Game 1 against the Rockets, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rondo was probable heading into the contest, and he'll see game action for the first time since March 10. Head coach Frank Vogel said Rondo won't face any minutes restrictions off the bench, but the team will treat his workload like a rehab assignment.

September 4, 2020 08:48 PM
Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Officially probable for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (back) is listed as probable for Friday's Game 1 against the Rockets, Harrison Faigen of SB Nation reports.

After sitting out the entire first-round series against Portland due to back spasms, the veteran continues to trend in the right direction as Round 2 approaches. Coach Frank Vogel said Wednesday that he's "hopeful" to have Rondo back for Game 1, and that will likely be the case, barring a setback in the next 24 hours. Rondo suffered a thumb injury shortly after the Lakers arrived in Orlando, so he has not played in an NBA game since March 10.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Vogel 'hopeful' for a Friday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Frank Vogel is hopeful that Rondo (back) will be in uniform and in the rotation for Friday's Game 1 against either the Thunder or Rockets, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

Rondo has yet to play in the bubble, but it appears he's on the verge of a return in what will be his first competitive action since Mar. 10. Once he returns, fewer minutes will likely be in store for Quinn Cook, Dion Waiters and/or J.R. Smith.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (back) will not play during Saturday's Game 5 against the Trail Blazers, Bill Oram of The Athletic reports.

Rondo's back spasms will prevent him from making his bubble debut. Chances are, his next chance to play will arrive in Round 2, as the Lakers are expected to close out the series against the Blazers on Saturday.

August 29, 2020 06:32 PM
Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (back) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers, Harrison Faigen of Silver Screen and Roll reports.

Rondo was originally listed as doubtful, but he's been upgraded to questionable for Saturday's Game 5. He has yet to play in the bubble and the Lakers may opt to keep him on the shelf as they're expected to close out the series against the Trail Blazers, who are without Damian Lillard (knee).

August 28, 2020 05:40 PM
Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Unlikely to play Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (back) is doubtful for Saturday's Game 5 against the Trail Blazers.

Considering the Lakers are up 3-1 and are expected to close out the series Saturday, the team won't attempt to rush Rondo back from back spasms. His next opportunity to play will likely come in Round 2.

August 25, 2020 03:56 PM
Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Expected to sit Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (back) is not expected to play in Wednesday's Game 5 against the Trail Blazers, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.

Coach Frank Vogel described Rondo as "still banged up," so expect the Lakers to give him some more time to recover from a sore back before he makes his bubble debut. The hope is that Rondo could return to the rotation for the start of Round 2 against either Houston or Oklahoma City.
