Bulls lose Rajon Rondo (fractured thumb) indefinitely
Chicago Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo has a fractured thumb that will sideline him indefinitely, the team announced on Friday morning.
"Rondo injured his right hand in Game 2 at Boston on Tuesday night. Rondo underwent a subsequent exam and x-rays that confirmed a thumb fracture. Surgery is not required for this injury, and he is out indefinitely," per the Bulls press release. It's a significant loss for a Bulls team that has been clicking on all cylinders so far in the playoffs. Jerian Grant figures to move into the starting lineup while Michael Carter-Williams sees more opportunity off Chicago's bench.
Rondo is averaging 11.5 points, 10.0 assists, 8.5 rebounds and 3.5 steals over two postseason contests.
