“It couldn’t have come at a worse time,” Rondo said after Game 3 about his fractured thumb that likely will keep him out the rest of this series. “Things happen for a reason; it is what it is. I’m not sure how long I’ll be out. I plan on healing pretty quickly, but the doctors tell me a couple of weeks, so we’ll see how it goes week to week. “Depends on what I can tolerate,” Rondo added. “I’ll check it every two days, see if I can pick up a ball. But right now I can’t even use a fork with my thumb. So it’s going to take a couple days to see how I feel and hopefully things get better. When I tried to pick a ball up it was pretty painful. I knew something was wrong. My finger was blue.”

“I knew right then there was something wrong with my thumb,” said Rondo. “I continued to play, I didn’t think nothing of it. It was painful, but it’s the playoffs. I felt it right away, but I was able to push the ball with my left hand up the floor. I still made a couple of passes, but I was locked into the game and played through the pain. “I do (consider myself a fast healer),” Rondo said. “I’ve had a couple of problems with my right hand the last month of the season. I was able to take a couple of days off and let it heal on its own or it got a little bit better, so I’m hoping it’s the same thing with my thumb; we’ll see.
