This is Rondo's second suspension of the season, following a two-game ban in February for throwing a ball at an official.

The worst team in NBA history will have a new coach next season.
The Charlotte Bobcats have decided not to renew coach Paul Silas' contract after the team finished 7-59 this season for the worst winning percentage in league history (.106).
The 68-year-old Silas said he was not surprised by the decision. He said he was promised a job in the organization by team owner Michael Jordan.
* Los Angeles Clippers forward Caron Butler is likely out for the rest of the playoffs after breaking his left hand in Game 1 against Memphis.
* Jeremy Lin practiced with the New York Knicks, and the team said it hopes to know more later this week about when the guard might be able to return to the lineup.
Lin participated in the team's gameday shootaround before its playoff matchup with the Heat, the fourth straight day that Lin did some on-court work in Miami.
Lin had surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee 4 weeks ago.
