Rondo out for Game 5, questionable at best, for Game 6.— A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) April 26, 2017
Rondo said he can't do much with the thumb still. "It's still broke."— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) April 26, 2017
Rondo, the Bulls point guard who played the first two game of the series, was reportedly going to try and test the thumb tonight but told reporters Wednesday morning he couldn’t play.
Game 6 is Friday in Chicago. Game 7, if necessary, is Sunday in Boston. Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg called Rondo's return a "longshot."
X-rays show Rondo still has break in the right thumb with significant swelling, according to @chicagobulls Fred Hoiberg.— A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) April 26, 2017
Hoiberg said Rondo "has a significant amount of swelling and soreness." Hoiberg reiterates its "longshot" that he returns.— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) April 26, 2017
More to come.
