No suspension for Rondo, Hinrich

NBA spokesman Tim Frank announced Friday night that neither Rajon Rondo [1] nor Kirk Hinrich [2] will be suspended for Game 7 on Saturday night at TD Banknorth Garden [3].

The two got entangled in the closing moments of the first quarter of Thursday’s night’s Game 6 at the United Center in Chicago, with Rondo throwing Hinrich off his elbow. Hinrich lost his balance and went into the sideline signage next to the Celtics [4] bench.

Hinrich shoved Rondo and both head coaches came onto the floor to restore order. Rondo was assessed a flagrant 1 foul while Hinrich was assessed a technical for shoving Rondo.

Both players remained in the game.
