Bulls' Rajon Rondo Out Indefinitely With Broken Thumb

Bulls' Rajon Rondo Out Indefinitely With Broken Thumb

He signed a two-year, $47 million deal with the Bulls last summer and still has $23.8 million left for 2017-2018.

As one National Basketball Association head coach told me recently of Thomas: "He just can't defend".

The second game started off on the wrong foot for the Bulls, as they found themselves in a quick 7-0 hole, but the team responded quickly, retaking the lead and never relinquishing it, despite the Celtics pulling close in a few tense instances.

Bulls guard Rajon Rondo suffered a fractured thumb in Game 2 against the Celtics, and he is out indefinitely.

USADA hits Frank Mir with two-year suspension for banned substance
The 38-year-old Mir (18-11) will be subject to a two-year sanction that will not be retroactive to the day the sample was taken. USADA announced on Friday that Frank Mir received a two-year sanction after multiple positive tests for a prohibited substance.

They're also emboldened by what they've overcome.

"Rondo obviously has been unbelievable in the two wins we had in Boston", coach Fred Hoiberg said.

This is no fluke lead. Hoiberg should probably use Valentine in the rare minutes Thomas hits the bench - that's not a matchup that would go well for Chicago. On Thursday, Hoiberg praised reserves Bobby Portis and Paul Zipser for their parts in Chicago's success.

"We can't change the way we're approaching things right now because one of our star players is out".

VP Pence aims to reassure Australia after tense Trump call
Mr Turnbull said the fact Mr Pence's visit comes just three months since Trump took office was a positive sign. In return, Australia would resettle refugees from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

And it's doing nothing to slow the growing possibility that, if Wade opts in, the Three Alphas, against all odds, could be back for another season. "Probably the worst we've seen all year as far as point guards go".

"Whenever you get beat, you're antsy to get back out on the court and play", Stevens said. "We need easy baskets". The Blazers put up a great fight, with CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard scoring 41 and 34 points, respectively, but were simply no match for the league's most talented team.

In Game 2, Oladipo missed his only two shots in the fourth quarter against the Rockets while Wesbrook was just 4 of 18 from the field.

His four offensive boards in Game 1 helped expose a Celtic weakness on the defensive glass that the C's continue to struggle with going into tonight's game.

Daniel Cormier - Jon Jones II Reportedly in The Works For UFC 214
UFC 214 takes place on Saturday, July 29 from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California with no main event announced at this time. Cormier also won the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix, defeating Josh Barnett by decision in the finals.

But Rondo is proving the biggest revelation. Kawhi Leonard had a very efficient game, pacing all scorers with 32 points on 11-14 shooting to go along with five assists and his usual lockdown defense. They'll have to amplify their advantages in this series and the onus is on Butler to carry them into the second round.
