The Bulls are suspending Rajon Rondo for one game.
The organization sent out a press release Monday morning with the announcement their point guard would miss Monday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers for conduct detrimental to the team.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Rondon had a "heated exchange" with a Bulls coach after Saturday's 107-82 loss to the Mavericks in Dallas.

He was suspended by the NBA one game almost exactly a year ago for using a "derogatory and offensive term towards an official" as a member of the Sacramento Kings.
Rondo is averaging 8.2 points, 7.2 assists and 6.7 rebounds per game this season in 17 contests.
