Rajon Rondo (broken right thumb) has been ruled out for Friday’s Game 6 vs. the Celtics.
Rondo was never expected to play but this confirms it. The Bulls have looked stagnant on offense without Rondo running the point and things look bleak for this team’s chances to take the series to a Game 7. Isaiah Canaan will likely start again and though he’s averaging 13 points a game as a starter, he is not a playmaker nor does not create shots for his teammates like Rondo did. Look for Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler to have the ball in their hands all night as they try to extend the series.
