No punishment for Rondo

According to the Boston Globe [1], an NBA official has confirmed Celtics [2] guard Rajon Rondo [3] will not face further action in response to his Game 5 foul on Brad Miller [4]. The Bulls [5] had argued Rondo committed a flagrant foul in the closing seconds of overtime. The Celtics and Bulls will play Game 6 on Thursday night in Chicago.

The league did hand down on punishment, though, on Wednesday. Dwight Howard [6] was suspended for Game 6 of the Magic-76ers series for elbowing Samuel Dalembert in the face.
