While Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade was out for 11 games last month, point guard Rajon Rondo finally found a groove for the first time all season.

He was back in the starting lineup, and playing well consistently over the best stretch of the Bulls’ rocky season.

Now, Rondo has missed the past two games with a sprained wrist. While the injury was originally thought to be short-term, it now appears to be more serious than expected:

There are only two games left in the regular season, but they are huge ones for the Bulls’ playoff hopes, considering they are currently barely holding on to the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

If the Bulls do secure a playoff spot, they will need strong play from Rondo to have a chance, as coach Fred Hoiberg has never been able to rely on his other options at point guard, Michael Carter-Williams, Jerian Grant, and trade deadline addition Cameron Payne.

The Bulls are 7-5 in the twelve games the former Boston Celtics point guard has missed this year.
