The word from Portland
Rondo is out vs. Trail Blazers. Grant starts.— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) November 16, 2016
Unless I missed it, I don't recall Rondo having any incidents in the Wizards game over the weekend. So first notice of this was mid-day today.
Given how the Bulls have looked on the court with and without Rondo this year, it may not be the worst thing. With McDermott out too, expect a lot of Isiah Canaan spotting up with Butler and Wade handling the ball. We may also see some meaningful minutes from Denzel Valentines as well. Obviously Jerian Grant will see some non-trivial time as the team's starter.
Consider this the gamethread too. Tip-off is at 9pm, locally on WGN and nationally on NBATV.
