Bulls’ Rondo Benched for 2nd Half, Starting Role in Question

Chicago Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo was benched for the second half of Friday’s 111-101 loss to the Indiana Pacers, marking the second time in less than a week that he didn’t play down the stretch.

Rondo, who started the game and scored just two points in 11 minutes, said he was not surprised by Fred Hoiberg’s decision. Rondo also did not play in the fourth quarter of Monday’s win over the Pacers.

Hoiberg would not commit to Rondo starting in Saturday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

“We’ll see,” Hoiberg said. “We’ll evaluate it on the way back and make a decision prior to [Saturday’s] game.”

Sources: Brandon Ingram Out Three-to-Four Months after Thoracic Outlet Decompression Surgery

Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram underwent thoracic outlet decompression surgery on his right arm Saturday, and sources told ESPN he is expected to make a full recovery in three to four months.

Ingram was shut down last week after a medical examination of his sore right shoulder revealed deep venous thrombosis — a condition caused by a blood clot. That clot was removed and Saturday’s procedure assured better blood flow in Ingram’s upper body.

“This couldn’t have been a better set of facts for a clot,” Ingram’s agent, Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports Management, told ESPN.
