WASHINGTON (AP) -- Chicago forward Mike Dunleavy is nursing a thumb injury from the Bulls' Game 4 loss to the Washington Wizards.

Dunleavy jammed his left thumb attempting to take a charge in the fourth quarter Sunday in the Bulls' 98-89 loss.

The thumb was X-rayed and is swollen, but Dunleavy said he didn't think it was broken.

Even if it is broken, Dunleavy said it ''probably doesn't really matter'' because it's his non-shooting hand.

Dunleavy scored only six points in Game 4 after a getting a playoff career-high 35 in Game 3.
