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. "We're trying to win a championship", a Cavs player told Lloyd.

No explanation was offered following the game, but a report from The Athletic indicated the team was weighing a possible suspension during the Eastern Conference Finals. Though he averaged 14.7 points per game and shot 38.1 percent from three-point range in the regular season, his numbers have dipped to 4.6 and 13.3 percent, respectively.

The stunt certainly raised eyebrows across the organization. Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman will reportedly meet with Hood in an attempt to get Hood's perspective on the matter.

"This is the playoffs".

Hood is a very good player but he's had a awful playoffs so far, averaging only 4.6 points on 39.6 percent shooting. "This isn't about you".

Hood has not played well in the playoffs, and Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said before Game 4 that the 25-year-old guard "could be better" and knows it.

During Monday's Game 4 against the Raptors, the Cavaliers role-players finally stepped up, giving LeBron James a bit of relief from his Atlas-like duties of carrying the franchise on his shoulders.

Rodney Hood refused to enter the game when summoned in the fourth quarter Monday, angering a number of teammates, according to multiple sources.

It's an odd scene to watch play out at this point in the postseason, but it's also easy to see why Hood has been frustrated with his role on the Cavaliers of late.

Hood has struggled since Cleveland acquired him at the National Basketball Association trade deadline.

Hood "feels terrible", 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 of days off following a 4-0 sweep of the Raptors in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
