Rajon Rondo couldn't duplicate Sunday's near triple-double on Tuesday, but he still posted seven points, one 3-pointer, seven rebounds, five assists and two steals.
He turned the ball over three times but didn't take any FT attempts, to his fantasy owners' relief. Fantasy owners' should keep an eye on Rondo's health and playing time over the next few weeks -- he's averaging just 27.5 minutes over the Mavs' past six games, possibly a consequence of a lingering Achilles injury.

Rajon Rondo made 7-of-10 shots with two 3-pointers on Sunday, scoring 17 points with eight rebounds and nine assists in his first double-digit scoring game since Jan. 13.

This was just the fourth time since joining the Mavs that Rondo has made more than half of his shot attempts, so owners should enjoy it while it lasts. He padded his near triple-double with a pair of steals and only two turnovers in 34 minutes, taking full advantage of the absence of Pelicans' PG Jrue Holiday (leg).

Rajon Rondo stressed that he wasn't upset with coach Carlisle's decision to bench him during the fourth quarter of Friday's loss to the Bulls.

"Coach made a decision. It's as simple as that," said Rondo. "I've been in this game a long time. It's not like it's the end of the world. I like what Coach Carlisle has done for me this year. I don't have any regrets." Rondo has averaged 10.1 points, 7.1 assists and 5.1 rebounds in 16 games since being traded to the Mavs, and it's clear that his value is trending down. However, he is playing for a new contract and he still has time to turn things around.

Rajon Rondo was benched during the fourth quarter of the Mavs' 102-98 loss to the Bulls on Friday, finishing with six points on 3-of-9 shooting, two rebounds, four assists and a steal in 27 minutes.

Rondo was benched earlier in the year under the premise of Achilles' pain and it's starting to look to some like it's a basic offensive issue. Teams are packing it in against Rondo and Rick Carlisle decided to go with Devin Harris instead. Rondo is also struggling in fantasy leagues, so consider moving him to your bench in 8-cat leagues. Rondo is radioactive in 9-cat leagues unless you're punting turnovers, but some added production might sneak him into late-round value in those formats.

Rajon Rondo scored six points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two turnovers against the Grizzlies on Monday.

He crushed his previous season-low four assists today. Rondo's assists numbers have really fallen off since joining the Mavericks due to a slower pace than it was while he was in Boston and how Monta Ellis is a much better option on offense.
Jan 19 - 8:25 PM

Rajon Rondo was limited by his Achilles' injury on Friday, scoring just two points on 1-of-6 shooting with nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and five turnovers in 29 minutes.

It wasn't very clean but this isn't too far off from what owners should expect normally, and they can keep him in lineups unless news worsens. Monta Ellis moved things in the right direction after a terrible Wednesday with 14 points, four assists, a steal and a three in the Mavs' win.
Jan 17 - 1:45 AM

Rajon Rondo (Achilles) will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Nuggets, sending Raymond Felton back to the bench.

Rondo's return will kill the limited value of Raymond Felton, so those that made a speculative add can feel free to send Felton back to the wire. Owners looking to close the gap in the assist category in head-to-head leagues can go ahead and get Rondo active.
Jan 16 - 12:24 PM

Rajon Rondo (Achilles) said that will Friday vs. Denver.

Things aren't official just yet, but it's looking like Rondo has a good chance of suiting up for Friday's game. If he is able to go, Raymond Felton would head back to the bench and regain his status as a negligible fantasy option in all leagues. Stay tuned.
Jan 16 - 11:45 AM

Rajon Rondo (Achilles) will not play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

This is the first time we've seen anything wrong with Rondo's Achilles this season and it doesn't sound serious. Although, coach Rick Carlisle said that Rondo has been sore for some time. While he's out, Monta Ellis will have it all while Devin Harris and J.J. Barea will get more burn.
Jan 14 - 7:40 PM

Rajon Rondo scored 21 points in an overtime win vs. the Kings on Tuesday, adding seven assists, five boards, four steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

He had a very efficient night going 10-of-16 from the floor but still couldn't turn things around at the free throw line by missing all three attempts. He's obviously much better in points formats, but if he can have more scoring nights like these his owners will be thrilled.
Jan 14 - 12:56 AM

Rajon Rondo was a disaster again on Saturday against the Clippers, making 1-of-11 from the field for two points with three rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 27 minutes.

The good news is that he didn't take any attempts from the line. Rondo is now dead last for true shooting percentage on the season among players with at least 27 minutes per game and the move to Dallas hasn't helped either, as expected. In his 11 games with the Mavs, he's made just 39.3 percent from the field on 12.7 attempts with 33.3 percent from the line. Stop shooting in games? Even before this massive dud, Rondo was already outside of the top 150 in standard leagues in his time with Dallas.
Jan 10 - 6:11 PM

Rajon Rondo made just 1-of-13 from the field and missed both free throws to go with 10 rebounds, 14 assists, two steals and one turnover in 37 minutes against the Nets on Monday.

Most Rondo line ever, right? Besides his tremendous 29-point game in Boston last week, Rondo's shooting percentage has not improved since the trade. The good news is that his turnovers are down, but his assists and rebound have dropped off slightly. He won't have a high ceiling in standard leagues, but should be fine in points formats.
Jan 6 - 12:13 AM

Rajon Rondo dished out eight assists during the Mavs easy win over the Cavs on Sunday, adding four points (2-of-6 shooting), four rebounds, two steals, and one turnover.

Since coming to Dallas, Rondo has upped his field goal percentage and scoring to the tune of 15.4 points on 46.6 percent shooting from the field. He's also averaging 5.4 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.6 steals, and 3.3 turnovers per game while shooting 40 percent from the charity stripe. Owners will have to take the good with the bad with Rondo, but there's no denying he's an elite guy in the assist category.
Jan 4 - 3:23 PM

Rajon Rondo scored a season-high 29 points in his return to Boston on Friday, hitting 12-of-19 shots (including a career-high five threes) with six rebounds, five assists and one steal in a win.

Rondo clearly wanted to have a big night and he's doing his part to make it seem like he can turn his game off and on like a switch. This might represent the peak of Rondo mania this season, so owners may want to test the market after this massive night.
Jan 2 - 11:01 PM

When speaking to reporters following Friday morning's shootaround in Boston, Rajon Rondo said that he hasn't played defense in a couple years.

"I haven’t played defense in a couple of years," said Rondo. "I’ve been able to hide it a lot with Avery Bradley on the ball. He’s helped me out, the young guy. But [in Dallas] they expect me to play defense." That's an interesting quote from Rondo who will make his return to Boston tonight. Typically players have great games against former teams, so Rondo looks like a solid option in daily leagues.
