CHICAGO — Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo has a fractured right thumb and is out indefinitely, the team announced on Friday morning.

Rondo suffered the injury during 8th-seeded Chicago’s 111-97 win over the top-seeded Celtics in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series on Tuesday, the team said.

This is a potentially critical loss for the Bulls, who hold a 2-0 lead in this best-of-seven playoff series as it resumes here in Chicago on Friday night. Chicago had a chance to close out the series at the United Center, and now that possibility becomes considerably more challenging.

Rondo, the former Celtics star, controlled Games 1 and 2 in Boston, averaging 11.5 points, 10 assists and 8.5 rebounds per game.

“He’s been great,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said of Rondo on Thursday, before the injury had been announced. “He’s had a great series. He’s played two great games. And his last month has been really good, and, you know, he’s a really good player. He’s done it before. And obviously some of his greatest moments were in a Celtics uniform. So, very well aware of what he can do.”

After Chicago convincingly won Game 2, Bulls star Dwyane Wade pulled Rondo aside and commended him for how he had run the team. In addition to his gaudy statistics, Rondo brought a steady veteran presence as a player with extensive playoff experience, and he also brought a certain swagger.

Rajon Rondo says doctors told him he'll be out 'a couple weeks.' CHICAGO (AP) -- Just when it seemed everything was going right for the Chicago Bulls , Rajon Rondo broke his right thumb . Then, they lost to the Boston Celtics.

Celtics guard Avery Bradley said that as the Bulls were pummeling the Celtics in Game 2, he could hear Rondo yelling to his teammates that Boston’s players had given up.

Rondo missed the last two games of the regular season and second-year guard Jerian Grant started in his place. It is likely that Grant will get the call on Friday night, too. Grant started 28 games for Chicago this season, averaging 5.9 points and 1.9 assists per game, and he is a clear downgrade from Rondo.
