The Bulls say guard Rajon Rondo has a right thumb fracture. Surgery is not required for this injury, and he is out indefinitely.— Marc J. Spears (@MarcJSpearsESPN) April 21, 2017
This morning, the Chicago Bulls issued a statement noting that Rondo hurt his thumb in Game Two against the Celts, and that x-rays revealed the damage, which will not require surgery. Rondo, who had recently seemingly exploited his knowledge of Celtics play-making to help propel the Bulls to a 2-0 lead in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, is an absolutely massive setback for Chicago. Whether or not Boston can capitalize on this event remains to be seen, and while no one should be celebrating the injury of an opponent - especially an ex- Celtic - it is certainly a boon to the Celts' playoff aspirations.
