REPORT: Rajon Rondo breaks thumb, out indefinitely

Rajon Rondo has broken his thumb, and will likely not return to play against the Boston Celtics. .

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.
