Rodney Hood refused to enter the floor in Game 4

Rodney Hood Cavs' Rodney Hood Angered His Teammates & Possibly Lost The Locker Room After His Game 4 Stunt

Having not played in the first three quarters of Game 4, Lue called on Hood to enter with 7:38 remaining Monday.

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.

Hood, 25, was acquired on February 8 in a trade with the Utah Jazz as part of a three-team deal that also brought George Hill to Cleveland.

CLEVELAND - A person familiar with the situation says the Cleveland Cavaliers will not fine or suspend forward Rodney Hood for refusing to enter Game 4 against Toronto.

Hood, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, has a major financial incentive to perform well this postseason.

"Hood refused to go in, multiple sources confirmed".

The Cleveland Cavaliers completed a sweep of the Toronto Raptors with a dominant Game 4 win Monday night.

Some of his teammates may have thought that Rodney Hood is only thinking about himself and not what is good for the team.

Rodney Hood #1 of the Cleveland Cavaliers looks on during game four of the NBA Playoffs against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on April 22, 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana. We'll see how much time Lue gives him when the Cavs play in the Eastern Conference Finals-likely against the Boston Celtics, who lead the Philadelphia 76ers 3-1 and could close out that series Wednesday. Had Hood played in the final minutes, he could have changed Cavaliers head coach Ty Lue's perception about him.

ESPN reported Tuesday afternoon that Hood already apologized to teammates and "feels awful" for the incident.

Hood is clearly frustrated, but you'd still expect more mature conduct from a 25-year-old making his first deep postseason run. But with an attitude unbecoming of a player that's part of a championship contender aside from his poor play, Hood's chances of a lucrative deal may have vanished into thin air.
