After suffering a fractured thumb in Game 2 against the Boston Celtics, Rajon Rondo has been ruled out indefinitely.

Rajon Rondo suffered a fractured thumb against the Celtics during Sunday's Game 2, and will be out indefinitely according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The injury will reportedly not require surgery.

Rondo, who was averaging 11.5 points and 10 assists in the first-round series versus the Boston Celtics, has been instrumental in the Bulls' late-season resurgence.

Jerian Grant will likely fill in for Rondo at the starting PG position. Grant only played six minutes in the 111-97 Game 2 victory over the Celtics, and went o-for from the field.

The No. 8 seeded Bulls are currently 2-0 in the series versus the No. 1 seeded Celtics, a series that most NBA analysts had Boston winning in four or five games.

Tonight is the first home game of the series for the Bulls, and with a shocking 2-0 lead, a win at the United Center would all but clinch the series for the underdog Bulls. No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in NBA history.

The game is set to tip off at 7:00 p.m. E.T. and you can catch the matchup on ESPN. The Celtics are favored by 1.5 points.
