Report: Rajon Rondo will try to play in Game 5
Rajon Rondo will try to play in Game 5 of the Chicago Bulls’ playoff series with the Boston Celtics, according to a report.
Rondo injured his thumb during Game 2 of the Bulls’ series and has missed the last two games, both losses for Chicago. He was initially expected to miss a few weeks with a fractured thumb, but the point guard had his cast removed and was seen attempting some shots on Tuesday.
The Vertical’s Shams Charania now reports that Rondo will try to play in Wednesday’s playoff game.

Rondo was a major factor in the two playoff games in which he participated. If he’s able to play in Game 5, that could potentially give Chicago a major boost.
The first-round series is tied 2-2.
