Rajon Rondo suspended following altercation with Chris Paul

Rajon Rondo suspended following altercation with Chris Paul

The NBA has suspended Rajon Rondo three games for his role in Saturday night's altercation with Chris Paul.

Rondo and Paul threw punches after it appeared Rondo spit on the Rockets point guard. Paul was handed a two-game suspension, while Brandon Ingram will be forced to sit out four games for his actions during the fracas.

The drama from the altercation apparently didn't end when the game clock hit zero. Chris Paul reportedly was still fuming after the game because Rondo's family made inappropriate comments toward his wife Jada following the incident.

Rondo is no stranger to suspensions. This marks the seventh suspension of the former Celtic's career.

Celtics' Aron Baynes (hamstring) out for Monday game against the Magic

Celtics' Aron Baynes (hamstring) out for Monday game against the Magic

BOSTON -- The Boston Celtics will be short-handed for Monday's game against the Orlando Magic.

Aron Baynes suffered a right hamstring injury in the second quarter of Boston's 103-101 win over New York on Saturday, and has been ruled out for action against the Magic by Celtics officials. 

Although the NBA season is still very young, Baynes has wasted no time making his presence felt both defensively in addition to being another scorer both from inside the lane and from the perimeter.

With Baynes out, look for Guerschon Yabusele and Daniel Theis to see some time off the bench until Baynes returns.
