Rajon Rondo racked up 18 points on 8-of-11 shooting, nine rebounds, nine assists, one 3-pointer and one steal in 34 minutes on Sunday, as the Bulls ran away with a win in Milwaukee.
Rondo has scored double-digit points in consecutive games just once in March, but he's been solid in other areas with averages of 3.8 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.6 steals. He's even hitting 1.4 triples per game on 51.5 percent from deep this month, and is knocking down 83.3 percent of his free throws (albeit on very few attempts). He could cool off at a moment's notice, but the playing time should be there with Chicago chasing a playoff spot. Mar 26 - 6:16 PM

Rajon Rondo scored four points with four rebounds, five assists and four steals in 21 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

He had some interesting comments after the game when he was asked what went wrong. "Everything," Rondo said. "Obviously, it gets magnified when you lose to Philly or a team you’re supposed to beat. But it’s been the same pretty much all year." Sounds about right. Rondo is what he is as a volatile fantasy asset.
Mar 25 - 1:27 AM

Rajon Rondo scored a season-high 24 points in Tuesday's 122-120 overtime loss to the Raptors.

He had 19 points alone in the first half, but slowed down after the break and was a little careless with the ball when it mattered the most. Rondo finished 9-of-16 from the field with eight assists, five rebounds, four steals and four 3-pointers, so his owners will live with the four turnovers. Other than a dud on Saturday vs. the Jazz, Rondo has been solid since he moved back to the starting lineup and his fantasy owners can deploy him three more times this week.
Mar 21 - 10:32 PM

Rajon Rondo played 21 minutes with two rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer against the Jazz on Saturday.

Coach Fred Hoiberg went with Michael Carter-Williams more in this game for defense and it worked in the win. Rondo played at least 33 minutes in each of his last three starts, so he should be back to being in the 30s his next time out. Somehow, Rondo has made 13-of-29 from deep (44.8 percent) in his 12 games since the break. He's an OK player to own, but he obviously has his faults for percentages and turnovers.
Mar 19 - 12:17 AM

Rajon Rondo played 35 minutes in his second straight start on Wednesday, making 7-of-16 from the field for 17 points with six rebounds, eight assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

Maybe it was the green uniforms, but Rondo looked like his old self. He played the entire first quarter, had very high usage and he didn't even turn the ball over. He's likely locked up big minutes with just about every other bit of competition fading away. He's not the most fantasy-friendly guy, but he's worth a look if you're OK with bad percentages. Plus, Dwyane Wade (elbow) getting hurt also helps his upside.
Mar 15 - 11:10 PM

Rajon Rondo will remain in the starting five for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

Rondo played great on Monday, scoring a season-high 20 points to go with three triples, six dimes, seven boards, one steal and three turnovers in 36 minutes, so it'll be interesting to see what he can do with a tough matchup against Memphis tonight. Rondo's season-high performance did feel a bit flukey, but at the very least, Rondo qualifies as a deep league streamer to see if he can keep his momentum going.
Mar 15 - 12:21 PM

Rajon Rondo moved into the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Hornets and looked great, scoring a season-high 20 points.

We'll warn you that his line was pretty fluky, as he hit three 3-pointers in the opening quarter -- he was hitting 0.6 triples per game at a 33.0 percent clip prior to Monday. The big takeaway is that the Bulls snapped their five-game losing streak with Rondo leading the charge, so he will likely start again on Wednesday vs. Memphis. He added seven rebounds, six assists and one steal in 36 minutes. Give him a look if you're targeting assists, rebounds and steals, but keep in mind that he could hurt your shooting percentages.
Mar 13 - 10:00 PM

Rajon Rondo will return to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Hornets, sending Jerian Grant back to the bench.

Rondo was recently quoted saying that he wished Chicago management would prioritize making the postseason over player development, so now he'll need to put his money where his mouth is and try and help Chicago pull out a win tonight. Rondo has struggled for much of the year, regardless of how he enters the game, and there are no guarantees that the starter tag will stick. In other words, he could be worth streaming in deep leagues, but he's still not quite must-own in standard leagues.
Mar 13 - 5:39 PM

Rajon Rondo said he "would love to be part of a winning tradition or winning culture."

"I thought I was going to get that here," Rondo said. "The people up top are going in a different direction as far as experimenting. It [stinks] when you have the opportunity to make the playoffs and they want to go a different route." This isn't the first subtle shot Rondo has made at the front office, as he's frustrated by his team's decision to experiment with several different point guards. The Bulls have been using as many as 12 different guys in the rotation and they want to keep giving Cameron Payne and Jerian Grant opportunities, so Rondo's fantasy outlook moving forward is pretty bleak.
Mar 13 - 11:18 AM

Rajon Rondo scored two points on 1-of-5 shooting Sunday, to go with three rebounds, three steals, six assists and one turnover in 19 minutes off the bench.

The four point guard monster in Chicago has been a mess for all parties involved, essentially guaranteeing that no one will be able to earn enough minutes on a consistent basis to make any meaningful impact in fantasy hoops. Rondo has been clinging to late-round over the past month with averages of 8.5 points, 5.5 dimes, 1.4 steals and 2.5 turnovers per game, so he’s basically just an assist and steals specialist in deep leagues.
Mar 12 - 6:12 PM

Rajon Rondo scored eight points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 17 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

Maybe coach Fred Hoiberg looks at him more often. Maybe he doesn't. Regardless, this PG situation will be maddening for people with Zen-like patience.
Mar 10 - 10:47 PM

Rajon Rondo (ankle) returned to action on Wednesday with eight points, six assists, five rebounds, one block and a pair of 3-pointers in 28 minutes off the bench.

Rondo has actually been quite good in his past five games, averaging 10.6 points (50.0 FGs, 77.8 FTs), 3.4 boards, 6.2 assists and a value-anchoring 2.4 steals. Fred Hoiberg likes his fit with the second unit and it sounds like he'll maintain his current role with the Bulls still clinging to the No. 8 seed.
Mar 8 - 9:48 PM

Rajon Rondo (ankle) will play Wednesday vs. the Magic.

Rondo could have the ball in his hands a bit more often tonight with Dwyane Wade (thigh) on the sidelines, but with Jimmy Butler (illness) expected to play, Rondo isn't the greatest DFS target. Feel free to get him active in season-long leagues, though.
Mar 8 - 5:40 PM

Rajon Rondo (ankle) and Dwyane Wade (thigh) will be game-time calls for Wednesday's matchup with the Magic.

Head coach Fred Hoiberg said he was hopeful that Rondo will be able to take the floor tonight, but he wasn't as optimistic about Wade. Rondo was able to go through portions of Tuesday's practice, and he participated during shootaround, so things are trending in a positive direction here. Jimmy Butler (illness) is also being listed as questionable, and if both Butler and Wade hit the sidelines, Rondo would likely get the start and he'd be the primary guy facilitating the offense. Stay tuned.
Mar 8 - 1:09 PM

Rajon Rondo (ankle) will be a game-time decision Wednesday vs. Orlando.

Rondo did go through limited portions of Tuesday's practice, and while head coach Fred Hoiberg said Rondo was feeling better, he made it clear that he'll err on the side of caution with bringing Rondo back from this injury. If he's unable to give it a go on Wednesday, Jerian Grant, Cameron Payne and Michael Carter-Williams will split his minutes.
