Celtics Guard Rondo Suspended, to Miss Tonight’s Game at Knicks

Don't Miss Out —

Jan. 7 (Bloomberg) -- Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo will miss tonight’s game at the New York Knicks after being suspended one game by the National Basketball Association for making contact with a referee.

Stu Jackson, the NBA’s executive vice president for basketball operations, said today in an e-mailed release that Rondo was suspended without pay for touching the official during an 89-81 victory at the Atlanta Hawks yesterday and failure to cooperate with a league investigation.

The Celtics (16-17) have won two straight games heading into tonight’s contest against the Knicks (23-10) at Madison Square Garden.

Rondo, 26, was suspended for two games in November for starting a fight that spilled into the stands during a home loss to the Brooklyn Nets. He also was suspended a game during last season’s playoffs for bumping an official.
