Celtics vs. Bulls: Chicago's Rajon Rondo out indefinitely with right thumb fracture
The Bulls point guard will not require surgery
Chicago's hopes of a first-round upset over the Celtics have suffered a major blow.
After averaging 7.8 points, 6.7 assists and 5.1 rebounds during the regular season, Rondo has upped his averages to 11.5 points, 10 assists and 8.5 rebounds in two postseason games. He has caused a problem for the Celtics by getting into the lane and either finding shooters or finishing himself.
This is exactly the kind of thing that the Celtics were hoping for, as they desperately look for something to turn this series around. Without Rondo, the Bulls will use the point guard tandem of Jerian Grant and Michael Carter-Williams, with Grant reportedly earning the start.
The Bulls could also give the majority of ball-handling duties to Wade and Butler, as the team waits to see if Rondo can return before the end of the series.
Tip off for Game 3 is set for Friday at 7 p.m. ET.
