Bulls' Rajon Rondo out for Game 6 with injured thumb

Chicago Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo will not play in Game 6 of the team's first-round series against the Boston Celtics because of an injured thumb.

Chicago Bulls guard Rajon Rondo is out indefinitely with a fractured right thumb, the team announced Friday.

The team says the thumb injury will not require surgery.

Rondo was injured in Chicago's 11197 Game 2 victory over the Boston Celtics after playing 40 minutes in the contest. The Bulls say x-rays during an exam following the game confirmed a thumb fracture.

Rondo has been outstanding in the playoffs, averaging 11.5 points, 10 assists and 8.5 rebounds per game as the Bulls have taken a 2-0 lead in their first round series against the top-seeded Celtics.

Game 3 of the best-of-seven series is Friday in Chicago.
