Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Joining team 'very soon'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Frank Vogel intimated that Rondo (thumb) will join the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Lakers' backcourt depth will be especially thin until Rondo is cleared to return.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Out 6-to-8 weeks with fractured thumb
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo sustained a right thumb fracture in practice Sunday, Mike Trudell of the 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: Injures hand in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo sustained a "significant" hand injury during practice Sunday, Dave McMenamin of reports.

Rondo reportedly underwent medical examination on both his hand and thumb after suffering an injury during practice Sunday evening. The details and severity of his injury are expected to be disclosed early Monday.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Productive as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo contributed 12 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six assists, four rebounds and two steals in 26 minutes during Thursday's 116-86 win at Golden State.

Rondo started for the first time since Jan. 11 and produced a solid outing as the team's floor general in a comfortable win. Despite his good showing here, Rondo is widely expected to head back to the bench once LeBron James (groin) is available again -- something that could happen as early as Saturday at Memphis.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo is in the starting lineup for Thursday's contest against the Warriors, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

With LeBron James out due to a sore groin, Rondo will make his first start since Jan. 11, when he logged 33 minutes of action and posted a double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds. In his other start Dec. 22, Rondo managed five points and dished out eight assists in 28 minutes.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Swipes five versus Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo finished with two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in 14 minutes Wednesday in the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Posts 11 points Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo finished with 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt), four assists and four rebounds across 21 minutes in Saturday's 125-120 win against the Warriors.

Rondo was surprisingly aggressive and dependable from three, shooting over 50 percent with at least five shots for the first time this campaign. The 33-year-old continues to be an enigma and will see his fluctuating production tested again on Monday versus a Suns team that limited him to his worst home showing this season, just one assist on Jan. 1.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Dishes eight dimes in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo compiled 13 points (6-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt), eight assists, three rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes during Saturday's 129-113 victory over the Kings.

Rondo turned in one of his better performances, falling only two assists short of a double-double. He is well outside the top-200 this season and the fit with LeBron James on the court is questionable at best. Given this is just the fourth time he has scored in double-digits since the calendar flipped to 2020, Rondo should be viewed as an assists streamer only in 12-team formats.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Logs 15 minutes versus 76ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo managed two points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four assists and one rebound in 15 minutes during Saturday's 108-91 loss to the 76ers.

Rondo gave it a go as expected after having been listed as probable due to a finger injury. However, he earned the ninth-most minutes on the team and continues to be wildly inconsistent even if he's still a solid source of assists.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (finger) will play Saturday against the 76ers, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

As expected, Rondo will play through his injury. Over the past three games, he's averaging 9.3 points, 5.3 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 20.3 minutes.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Probable again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo is probable for Saturday's game against Philadelphia due to a right finger injury.

Rondo has now played in three straight games since being sidelined with the finger injury for three contests, so the expectation is that he'll be good to go Saturday, barring any last-minutes setbacks.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Likely to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (finger) is probable for Thursday's contest against the Nets, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

Rondo's finger is sore following Wednesday's win, but it shouldn't prevent him from taking the court. This month, he's averaging 8.0 points, 4.5 assists and 3.9 rebounds in 21.0 minutes.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (finger) is available Wednesday against the Knicks.

Rondo has been nursing a finger injury lately, but the issue won't keep him from taking the court Wednesday. In his return from a three-game absence Monday, Rondo tallied 13 points, three assists and two rebounds in 20 minutes.

January 21, 2020 10:20 PM
Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Deemed probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (finger)f is considered probable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Rondo logged 20 minutes in his return to action Monday night against the Celtics, so this designation appears to be precautionary. Even so, it'll be worth monitoring the point guard's availability leading up to tipoff.

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Not hampered by finger in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo (finger) contributed 13 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists and two rebounds in 20 minutes off the bench Monday in the Lakers' 139-107 loss to the Celtics.

Rondo missed the past three games with a fractured ring finger on his right hand, but based on his strong shooting Monday, he didn't appear to be encumbered by the injury. Now that Rondo is back in action as the Lakers' backup point guard, Quinn Cook and Alex Caruso could settle into smaller roles off the bench.

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

Rondo (finger) is available Monday against the Celtics, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

Rondo has been cleared to return after missing the past three games with a non-displaced solar plate avulsion fracture of his right ring finger. Prior to getting injured, Rondo was averaging 7.2 points, 5.0 assists and 4.7 minutes across six games in January (21.7 minutes per tilt).

Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Deemed questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lakers list Rondo (finger) as questionable for Monday's game against the Celtics, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

Rondo has missed the Lakers' last three games with a non-displaced volar plate avulsion fracture of his right ring finger, but his upgrade to questionable implies that his injury is viewed as a day-to-day concern. If Rondo is cleared to play Monday, he would likely step in as the backup point guard, presumably bumping Quinn Cook out of the rotation in the process.
