Update: Rondo has been fined $25K for the incident.ย 

With Rajon Rondo on the sidelines for Game 3 and possibly for the rest of the playoffs, the Bulls struggled mightily in the first quarter on Friday.

Not one to sit idle as his team fell behind, Rondo appeared to try to trip Jae Crowder from his seat on the Bulls’ bench.

After the game, Rondo said he was just stretching a stiff leg.

While his foot never touched Crowder, it’s possible Rondo faces some sort of punishment from the League.
