Cleveland Cavaliers won't discipline Rodney Hood for refusal to play
09 May, 2018, 01:01 | Author: Lora Ball
The Cavs hammered the Toronto Raptors 128-93 to complete the four-game sweep in the Eastern semifinals, and in the fourth quarter Hood declined when the coaching staff tried to send him onto the court.
Hood was the only player not to play in Game 4, though the Cavs do not view what he did as an act of defiance, a source said.
It goes on: "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".
Hood spoke to team officials about the incident Tuesday and will not be disciplined, said the person who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.
According to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic, head coach Tyronn Lue called on Hood to check in for LeBron James with just under 8 minutes to play and Cleveland up by 30.
Hood has struggled in the playoffs after being acquired in a February trade from Utah.

With Hood set to become a restricted free agent this summer, it's easy to imagine why he might be frustrated with his diminished role in the Cavaliers system, but he has since apologized for his actions.

While the Cavs bask in the afterglow of a second round sweep, everything for the three-time defending Eastern Conference champs isn't peaches and cream.
Hood, 25, has scored just 2 points over the Cavs' last five playoff games. "Hood dressed quickly and was one of the first players out of the locker room after the game".
Hood missed games multiple times down the stretch with a lower back strain and a sore left Achilles, but Lloyd reported that "according to multiple people who witnessed the exchange, this had nothing to do with stiffness and everything to do with a young player pouting".
Lloyd notes that Cavs general manager Koby Altman intends to meet with Hood to discuss the matter.
