Rodney Hood refused to enter the floor in Game 4

Cavs guard Rodney Hood

The Athletic's Jason Lloyd reports that shooting guard Rodney Hood refused to enter the game when coach Ty Lue attempted to substitute him in with 7:38 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Cavs up by 30.

"An opposing executive texted Lloyd: "(Hood) is not built for this", and now we're seeing why.

With the result of the game a formality, coach Tyronn Lue reportedly tried to sub Hood in, but the fourth-year wing refused the bench boss' order and balked at the pleas of teammates asking him to reconsider.

Hood scored just 2 points on 1-of-9 shooting in three appearances against the Raptors.

Walmart to limit opioid prescriptions to 7-day supply
Additionally, as of January 1, 2020, Walmart and Sam's Club will require e-prescriptions for controlled substances. This was partially fueled by the fact that some users may not realize that they are taking synthetic opioids.

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

Cleveland Cavaliers swingman Rodney Hood apologized to general manager Koby Altman on Tuesday for declining to enter the game when his number was called on late in a 128-93 blowout win over the Toronto Raptors on Monday night, a team source told ESPN. It would have been Hood's first appearance in the game.

Earlier in the game, rookie Cedi Osman came in with the second unit and played the minutes that had been going to Hood in Lue's rotation. He has only reached double figures in scoring once, in Game 6 against the Indiana Pacers, and averaged just 11.5 minutes in the previous four games before Monday. Hood balked, and his refusal to play put him at odds with his team.

In the long-term, Hood will become a restricted free agent this summer.

The next suggestion will then come up, and you can keep doing the Tab dance if you want, all the way to the end. Since it's context-aware, if it's Friday you'll get " Have a great weekend! " as a suggested closing phrase.

Hood "feels bad", according to the source, and he plans to apologize to his teammates and coaching staff in person as soon as they get back together after a couple days off following a 4-0 sweep of the Raptors in the Eastern Conference semifinals. It's not a stretch to think that Hood didn't want to be seen as an end-of-game minutes-eater when he's hoping to grow his value to potential suitors.

Cleveland management is reportedly set to meet with Hood.

If Hood's explanation for his actions isn't sufficient, a suspension could be forthcoming.
