Bulls guard Rajon Rondo out indefinitely with broken thumb

Nick Friedell is the Chicago Bulls beat reporter for ESPN Chicago.

The Chicago Bulls announced on Friday that Rondo suffered a thumb fracture in the team's Game 2 win over the Boston Celtics earlier in the week and is out indefinitely. They still have a two-game lead.

Almost a half-century later, Ainge's Celtics became only the second top-seeded team under the NBA's current seeding format to lose twice at the start of a series. After Game 2's victory, Wade talked about the healthy respect for Rondo when the two used to battle as part of the Heat-Celtics rivalry. However, Wade returned just in time for the playoffs and helped the Bulls take a 2-0 lead over the Boston Celtics. His philosophy to go with the hot hand just happens to be working over this two-game stretch. One of the top 10 players in the league this year.

He had, in fact, become so vital, he ranked next to Jimmy Butler and another surprise performer, center Robin Lopez, on the list of players the Celtics had to somehow stop tonight. "We're going to miss '[Rondo], the pace that he sets for this team, the leadership that he brings", Butler said.

"I thought we did a great job in Game 2 of making those adjustments, and that's win or lose right there, " Wade said.

Jimmy Butler is averaging 26 points per game (PPG), 5.5 assists per game and 8.5 rebounds per game (RPG) in the series. Boston is the better team and that will eventually shine through. "I guess we're doing it for him now". The Game 3 betting line is 1.5 points, via OddsShark, and the over/under is 207.

"For the playoffs, me in particular, you get a couple of extra days rest for the body", Rondo said. Wade gave a very trick answer to a very untimely question, something they can deal with after the season is over.

"We have to continue to go out and play for each other", Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said Thursday.
