Rajon Rondo has reportedly missed the trip to Sacramento Saturday, without the teams thumbs up. It was the captains birthday, and it was already known that he wasn't playing in the back-to-back against the Kings. I'm kind of split at the moment about this. Overall this is a non-issue for me.

“We already talked about it,” Rondo said. “There’s nothing to talk about.”
That doesn’t appear to be the case. President of basketball operations Danny Ainge said yesterday he is still looking into the situation.
“I plan on talking to Rondo when he gets back into town,” he told the Herald. “I’ll find out more about what went into it, and then we’ll handle it internally. We handle all of those kind of issues internally.”
The possibility exists that Rondo could be fined, but if not, the team will likely gain a more well-defined set of rules from this.
