Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended a game for making contact with an official during the game Saturday against the Hawks and then failing to cooperate with a league investigation, the NBA announced Monday.
Rondo will serve the suspension Monday night against the Knicks.
The Celtics are trying to get back on track after a disappointing start but have won two straight heading into their game with the Knicks. But without Rondo, they're going to have a hard time sustaining that momentum.
Rondo has a bit of a history in making contact with officials, as he was suspended a game for bumping an official in the Celtics playoff series against the Hawks last May.
This is the second time this season Rondo has been suspended. The 26-year-old Rondo, who is averaging 13.2 points and 11.3 assists in 29 games this season, was forced to sit out two games for his role in a November brawl against the Nets.
