Rodney Hood Won't Be Punished For Refusing To Play

The Cleveland cavaliers will reportedly NOT fine or suspend forward Rodney Hood for refusing to enter Monday night's Game 4 victory over the Raptors.

The Athletic reports that Hood refused entry into the game with 7:38 remaining in the 4th quarter and the Cavaliers up by 30 points. He was asked to sub in for LeBron James.

The move by Hood reportedly angered his teammates and others in the organization. The Associated Press reports that Hood spoke to team officials about the incident Tuesday and will not be disciplined.

Hood has struggled in the playoffs after being acquired in a February trade from Utah. The 25-year-old is averaging 4.6 points in 17 minutes and hasn't looked comfortable in Cleveland's offense.
