The Dallas Mavericks announced Wednesday that point guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended one game for conduct detrimental to the team for his incident with head coach Rick Carlisle during Tuesday nights games. Per ESPN:

The suspension stems from Rondo's profanity-laced shouting match with coach Rick Carlisle over play-calling responsibilities during the third quarter of Tuesday's win over the Toronto Raptors. Rondo, a four-time All-Star acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Boston Celtics on Dec. 18, traveled with the team overnight to Atlanta but will not play Wednesday night against the Hawks.

Rondo and Carlisle had another emotionally charged dispute in the locker room after the game, sources told, and the Mavs subsequently announced Rondo's suspension a little more than two hours before Wednesday's tipoff.
It sounds like this Rondo experiment in Dallas might not last another season.
