by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2015) Mavericks point guard Rajon Rondo suffered a head injury in Saturday's game against the Magic and will not return, the team announced.

Mavericks guard Rajon Rondo sits during crucial minutes Friday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"It's called coach's decision, and that's how we're going to roll," Carlisle said after the fifth question on the subject. "Next question."

Despite playing 27 minutes, Rondo scored six points and dished out four assists on the night. He insisted he wasn't upset with getting benched.

"Coach made a decision. It's as simple as that," said Rondo, who had six points on 3-of-9 shooting, four assists and two rebounds in 27 minutes. "I've been in this game a long time. It's not like it's the end of the world. I like what Coach Carlisle has done for me this year. I don't have any regrets."

Carlisle also said it was a gut feeling to keep Rondo out of the game at the end.

"There are very few correct decisions when you lose games," Carlisle said. "I've learned that after coaching over 1,000 of these. Listen, you've got to roll with your gut. When you're in the position that I'm in, you've got to take the heat and you've got to welcome the heat, because that's what this job is about."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The things in season that I feel like we can tweak we’ll tweak, but this is not the time of year for a major overhaul. It’s a time for him to figure out where his shots are coming from, what level of aggression we’d like him to have and what works within the context of our offense."
