Rajon Rondo made contact with an official after being whistled for an offensive foul. The official at the time did not whistle Rondo for a technical foul, but the league decided it was enough of a bump to warrant another suspension for Rondo.
Boston’s Rondo suspended 1 game for making contact with an official & failure to cooperate with a league investigation
Rondo will miss tonight’s game with the New York Knicks.
I’m not sure what the failure to cooperate part of this is, but at some point, Rondo’s got to wake the hell up and stop doing this crap with officials.
This is an especially disappointing suspension as it comes at a critical time for the Celtics. They’ve just won two straight against teams ahead of them in the standings… and tonight they face the division leader. A win tonight will be a huge message to the league, and a huge boost to the team as it tries to bounce back from an awful start.
