Chicago Bulls guard Rajon Rondo held an 11-minute interview session with the media on Tuesday afternoon and discussed his current situation and playing off the bench.

Rondo has been benched for the last five games and said he has been playing pick-up basketball to stay in shape outside of the team's practice facility.

With Dwyane Wade scheduled for an off-day and Jimmy Butler and Nikola Mirotic suffering from flu-like symptoms, Rondo is now the second man off the Bulls bench for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

“A member of the staff told me I needed to be saved from myself, ” Rondo said.
