Rondo Out ‘Indefinitely,’ Bulls Announce

Just hours before the Chicago Bulls take on the Boston Celtics in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series, the team announced that point guard Rajon Rondo will be out “indefinitely.” Rondo injured his right hand in Game 2 at Boston Tuesday night, the team announced. An exam revealed that he suffered a thumb fracture and while surgery is not required, he is “out indefinitely,” according to head coach Fred Hoiberg.  Jerian Grant will start in Rondo’s place at the point guard position, but with the Bulls’ shorter rotations in the latter part of the season, one could expect that Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler will handle the ball a lot when setting up the team’s offense.  Rondo played a pivotal role in the Bulls’ getting a 2-0 lead in the series over the Celtics, with 11 points and 14 assists to the point guard’s credit in their Game 2 win over Boston.  “We’re going to miss him,” Butler told media on Friday.
