How Cavs Will Address Rodney Hood's Refusal To Play Vs. Raptors
09 May, 2018, 00:47 | Author: Lula Armstrong
Cleveland guard Rodney Hood will not be suspended or fined for refusing to enter the game in the fourth quarter of the Cavaliers' blowout victory over Toronto on Monday, a person with direct knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports.
But he apparently had the chance to.
"When the Cavs called a timeout with a 30-point lead and 7:38 left Monday, Lue tried inserting Hood for James".
"This is not him as a person at all, he's a team player and wants what's best for the team", said a source, familiar with the discussion. "We're trying to win a championship".
ESPN reported Tuesday afternoon that Hood already apologized to teammates and "feels awful" for the incident.
Hood, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, has a major financial incentive to perform well this postseason. It was the only blemish on an otherwise impressive series sweep for the Cavs. Hood balked, and his refusal to play put him at odds with his team. For the first time in a long time, people-including LeBron James-believe the Cavs might actually have a shot at the title.
But one of the Cavaliers' potential role players was conspicuously absent from the game.
Hood struggled to find his rhythm in Cleveland's series against Toronto. A number of veterans huddled around him during the timeout and tried talking sense into him, but Hood still refused to go, so Jose Calderon subbed into the game instead. He recently lost his spot in the Cavs' rotation to rookie Cedi Osman, who logged 21 minutes in Game 4, scoring five points and two assists.
The 25-year-old Hood is averaging 4.6 points in 17 minutes in the postseason.
Hood explained to Altman, according to a team source, that he said something to the effect of, "I'm good, I'm fine, play the other guys", when asked to go in Monday.
