Rajon Rondo's fantasy basketball value
Rajon Rondo made his much-awaited season debut on Friday, posting eight points, four assists and two steals in just 19 minutes against the Lakers. He followed that up on Sunday with six points, six rebounds, four assists and a steal in 21 minutes in Orlando. Rondo will be an immediate help in terms of assists and steals, but given the struggles of players returning from similar ACL injuries, fantasy owners should remain patient and expect some rust for Rondo in the early weeks of his return. This will be particularly true since he is the kind of player who relies heavily on his speed and quickness. His owners should remain patient as Rondo works his way back into game shape. Avery Bradley's value, by the way, should remain solid even with Rondo back in the lineup.
