Rajon Rondo    G  Mavericks

 

 

Coach Fred Hoiberg had high praise for Rajon Rondo on Friday. Hoiberg and Rondo had a rocky relationship for much of the season, but the coach gave a strong endorsement of his point guard after the Bulls were eliminated on Friday. "Obviously we played great basketball with Rajon toward the end of the season," Hoiberg said. "I love Rondo. I love coaching him. I love everything about the kid. He was so good to have out there on the floor." Jimmy Butler also stated he wants the Bulls to pick up Rondo's team option. "Of course," Butler said. "He's been huge for us this year."

Coach Fred Hoiberg said that Rajon Rondo (thumb) remains out for Game 6 Friday vs. Boston and is unlikely to play in a potential Game 7. Isaiah Canaan will draw another start on Friday. He is averaging 13.0 points and 1.5 assists in 35.1 minutes over the last two games. With Jimmy Butler bothered by a sore knee, Hoiberg may again have to ask Dwyane Wade, and even Paul Zipser, to bring the ball up at times.

Rajon Rondo (thumb) is listed as out for Game 6 against the Celtics on Friday. This isn't a surprise after Rondo said his thumb was still broken before Game 5. Assuming there are not any changes, Isaiah Canaan will look to build off his 35.0 minutes per game over his last two, scoring 13 points in each. Wade's time at the point has also gone way up, but the Bulls really need to get Jimmy Butler going.

Rajon Rondo (thumb) said he will not suit up for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Celtics. Rondo really wants to get out there, but the fact remains that he's dealing with a pretty badly fractured right (shooting) thumb in addition to a torn ligament in his wrist, and according to him: "the slightest fall on the floor might further damage it." Rondo's next opportunity to play will come in Game 6 on Friday, but tonight, it'll be Isaiah Canaan starting at point guard with Jerian Grant and Michael Carter-Williams backing him up.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Canaan isn’t a great fantasy player but considering how poorly Grant and MCW played, he could push towards 30 minutes again tonight. During the season, he produced 0.71 FD ppm when he shared the court with Butler and Wade, so his $1,800 price tag on FD seems like a great deal. He received 24-31 minutes in ten games this season and he eclipsed 15 FD points in five of them while taking at least nine FGAs and/or five threes in eight.
