Rajon Rondo triple-doubled against the Cavs on Friday with 15 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.
He's had a few phenomenal matchups to get him going strong and his coach has been impressed with how he runs the offense. "I thought Rondo was great all night long," coach Fred Hoiberg said. "You could hear him yelling 'Run with me' to all the guys all game." Rondo will take his momentum in an ultimate revenge game against the Mavs and Mark Cuban with Dwyane Wade (rest) out. After Saturday, it's not a bad idea to try and sell high off the string of favorable matchups. Dec 3 - 1:31 AM

Rajon Rondo notched 14 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on Wednesday, with just one turnover in 36 minutes.

The Bulls lost tonight but they have a 3-0 record this season when Rondo hands out 10+ assists, which highlights his importance to the offense. The problem tonight wasn't a lack of distribution, but a lack of shot-making -- Rondo (6-of-12 FGs) and Bobby Portis (1-of-2 FGs) were the only Bulls players to shoot at least 50 percent, with the team going a combined 35.2 percent from the field.

Rajon Rondo made 2-of-5 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line for six points with eight rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and one turnover in 26 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

That'll work. A lower usage rate with some dimes, boards and steals will be a recipe for success in both fantasy and reality. Rondo's owners would love to see more lines like this one as a low-end asset in standard leagues. Although, this did come against the 76ers.
Nov 25 - 11:13 PM

Rajoy Rondo hit 6-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a block in 33 minutes of Tuesday's 110-107 loss to the Nuggets.

He's averaging just 8.7 points in three games since returning from his ankle injury, but is also at 10.0 rebounds, 9.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.7 3-pointers over that stretch. Make sure he's in your lineup as long as he's healthy enough to play for the Bulls.

Rajon Rondo (ankle) finished Sunday's 118-110 victory in L.A. with just four points on 2-of-9 shooting, but he added 12 assists, nine rebounds and one steal in 36 minutes.

Rondo made it through a back-to-back set this weekend which suggests his ankle won't be an issue going forward. He looked good tonight, especially in the second half, but cautious owners should still double-check his status for Tuesday's road game in Denver.
Nov 21 - 1:23 AM

Rajon Rondo (ankle) will play vs. the Lakers on Sunday.

Jerian Grant shifts to the bench and his temporary appeal is crushed with Rondo available tonight. It's a very favorable matchup for Rondo and the Bulls, so don't hesitate to plug him into your active lineups.
Nov 20 - 8:51 PM

Rajon Rondo (ankle) is questionable to play Sunday vs. the Lakers.

Dwyane Wade (rest) has already been ruled out for Sunday's game, and if Rondo joins him on the sidelines, Jimmy Butler's usage rate will be absolutely ridiculous. Jerian Grant will likely draw the start if Rondo can't go, and there would be more minutes available for Isaiah Canaan. Stay tuned.

Rajon Rondo (ankle) scored nine points with 10 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

He hit the ground running after missing his last two. Rondo looked like himself and he should be ready to go against the Lakers in a better matchup on Sunday night. He's played 33.0 minutes per game in his two previous back-to-back outings, so expect plenty of minutes.
Nov 20 - 1:34 AM

Rajon Rondo (ankle) will play against the Clippers on Saturday.

He missed the last two games, but everything went well with him today. He went through shootaround and he had no issues in pre-game warmups. Rondo is going to have his hands full tonight against Chris Paul. Jerian Grant takes a big hit while Denzel Valentine and Isaiah Canaan also lose value.
Nov 19 - 9:55 PM

Rajon Rondo (ankle) went through shootaround on Saturday and will be a game-time decision to face the Clippers.

His left ankle has kept him out for the last two games, but the Bulls have played well with two wins in Utah and Portland. If Rondo is a go, that will put a big dent in Jerian Grant's short-term value. Denzel Valentine and Isaiah Canaan could also lose minutes. Rondo has been a headache to own and he's clearly not going to have a season like last year. Chris Paul would probably torch him, too.

Nov 19 - 2:22 PM

Rajon Rondo (left ankle sprain and bronchitis) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Clippers.

Rondo has missed each of the Bulls last two games due to his left ankle injury. Jerian Grant has started both of those games. Grant is averaging 12.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.0 3-pointers and 3.5 steals in his two starts. Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Bulter have also seen their productivity rise with Rondo sidelined.

Rajon Rondo (ankle) will not play against the Jazz on Thursday and Jerian Grant will start again.

It'll be Rondo's second game out due to his ankle sprain. He hasn't played well at all while Grant has shown some sudden improvement. Grant is worth a look for a short-term boost even though this isn't a great matchup for him.
Nov 17 - 9:02 PM

Rajon Rondo (ankle) is doubtful to play against the Jazz on Thursday.

He didn't do much in practice on Wednesday and he was considered a game-time call yesterday. If Rondo is out for this game, Jerian Grant will get another start after a 30-minute, 18-point game against the Blazers on Tuesday. Isaiah Canaan and Denzel Valentine will also help out in the second unit.

Rajon Rondo (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. Portland.

Initially called a sore left ankle, the Bulls are now calling it a left ankle sprain. Rondo's next chance to play will be on Thursday vs. the Jazz, but we've heard very little regarding the severity of the injury. Jerian Grant will draw the start, but he's not a great add in most formats. Instead, look for Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler to run the offense a lot more sans Rondo.

Rajon Rondo (sore left ankle) has been downgraded to questionable for Tuesday's game against Portland.

If Rondo is forced to the sidelines Tuesday night, Isaiah Canaan would likely draw the start and he could be someone to consider as a potential punt play in DFS with a favorable matchup against Portland. Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade would also see a boost, as they'd have the ball in their hands more often sans Rondo.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: It's never good to see a player downgraded during the day, so there appears to be a real shot for Rondo to sit. If that comes true, Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade would both become stronger DFS targets at the wing spots. Butler will have the better individual match-up (POR ranks 16th vs. SFs) and also carries a higher floor, so he's the preferred target if you're choosing one. Isaiah Canaan and Jerian Grant would figure to soak up most of Rondo's minutes, but neither would figure to take on a big workload.
