Earlier, A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE tweeted that Rajon Rondo had left Team USA to deal with a death in the family. In a follow up story, Blakely reports that Rondo has returned to Kentucky because of the passing of his uncle but expects to be back on the court soon.
From the article:
“Rondo had to leave because his uncle passed in Kentucky,” said Jerry Colangelo, managing director of the USA Basketball Men’s Senior National Team. “He’ll be back tonight.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with Rajon and his family.
