Default Luol Deng and Rajon Rondo return

ESPN reports:

Fantasy teams missing an integral part of their lineups were relieved this weekend, as both Luol Deng and Rajon Rondo returned from wrist injuries.
Deng didn't miss a beat, scoring 21 points with nine assists and three 3-pointers on Saturday in 41 minutes of play. Coach Tom Thibodeau loves riding Deng for big minutes, and Deng is instantly back as a key cog in Chicago's lineup; he should be reinserted into fantasy lineups immediately. Ronnie Brewer's limited value essentially vanishes, and Kyle Korver goes back to being an inconsistent, 3-pointer-only option, as Deng and his near 40 minutes per game sops up the value of other swingmen on the roster.

Rondo missed eight games, and even though he averaged 10.5 assists and 2.0 steals in two games this weekend, he was a bit rusty, going a combined 5-for-14 from the field (35.7 percent), with five turnovers in each game. I wouldn't be alarmed. I expect him to be averaging his typical numbers before long, although I would expect Paul Pierce's assist numbers to dip significantly with Rondo back. Pierce averaged 7.5 assists in the eight games Rondo was sidelined, a number that should come back down to his typical 3-4 per game range.
