Rajon Rondo Injury: Did Bulls Guard Fracture His Thumb On This Play?


Rajon Rondo’s thumb injury might represent a turning point in the Chicago Bulls’ first-round playoff series with the Boston Celtics.

The Bulls guard is sidelined indefinitely due to a fractured thumb he suffered Tuesday in Game 2. The Bulls didn’t reveal exactly when Rondo fractured his thumb, but Brian Robb of The Sports Hub guessed Friday on Twitter that the injury might have taken place on this second-half play.

Rondo endured the pain and helped the Bulls win Game 2, 111-97. That might prove to be his last great contribution to the series, though, as Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said Friday the four-time All-Star will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days.
