Description: Celtics guard Rajon Rondo has fantasy bust written all over him.
Insight: Rondo will miss at least the first week of the season and up to three weeks. Even when he was active last season, Rondo did not post statistics to place him in the top-100 fantasy players. Plus, fantasy owners have no idea which team he might finish the season with because the Celtics could trade him. Let someone else deal with Rondo this season.

Description: Celtics guard Rajon Rondo did some non-contact offensive work during Friday's practice according to the Boston Herald.
Insight: Despite the good news, Rondo has a ways to go before he is approved for contact drills. With Marcus Smart playing well through preseason so far, Rondo may be expendable in a trade. Rondo is a risky pick with big upside on draft day.
 
9/26/2014 8:42:00 PM
Description: Celtics guard Rajon Rondo underwent surgery on his broken matacarpal in his left hand and is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks according to the Boston Globe.
Insight: Rondo suffered the injury slipping in the shower at his home. He will likely miss the first 3-10 games of the season. With the trade rumors swirling around Rondo, Boston will likely not play their point guard until he is definitely healthy. Do not pick Rondo in the first half of the draft.

Description: The latest rumor, courtesy of talk show host Tyler Spence, is for Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is a trade with Sacramento.
Insight: If true, this would be horrible news for Darren Collison's fantasy owners because as it stands he's set to be the Kings starting point guard. Of course, after a year of rumors concerning Rondo, we will believe it when someone actually pulls the trigger on the trade.
