The Boston Celtics didn't panic to fill Rajon Rondo's spot when he was ruled out for the season with a torn right ACL. But with Leandro Barbosa now out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his Left knee, the Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge might be forced to bring in outside help

Jason Terry‘s last shot told the whole story. With the Celtics up by four and Terry seemingly heating up with two 3-pointers in the fourth quarter already, the veteran sharpshooter let loose a long-range shot that might have put the nail in the Bobcats’ coffin. The other four guys in green jerseys turned to jog back down the court, anticipating another flight for the Jet.
The Boston Celtics have two guards with torn ACLs. They received updates on both. Fortunately, the news on Rajon Rondo's knee is positive. However, Leandro Barbosa who tore his ACL just a couple days ago, did not get quite as encouraging news.According to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe, Rondo's knee surgery went well.Danny Ainge tells Globe Rondo underwent ACL...
Josh Smith has again been linked to Boston by a respected NBA reporter.
I keep hearing Josh Smith's primary destination is Boston.— Gery Woelfel (@GeryWoelfel) February 14, 2013
"Primary destination" can mean trade destination or as a free agent.
It's been well documented the immensely talented, immensely frustrating Smith is a good friend of Rajon Rondo....
The Celtics host the Bulls tonight at the Garden (7:30 tip), in the 4th and final meeting between the clubs this season. So far this year the Bulls have won 2 of the 3 match-ups, including the only game in Boston. Here's what rounds 1-3 have looked like.
Nov. 12th: Celtics 101, Bulls 95 - Celtics win in Chicago behind Rajon Rondo's near triple-double (20 points, 10 assists...
Rajon Rondo underwent successful surgery to repair his "torn" ACL this past Tuesday, and there is already talk about him making a quick return. Doc Rivers spoke with the media about Rondo, and joked that he could possibly make a quick return like NFL player Adrian Peterson. Rondo chose to have his knee operated on by the same surgeon, Dr. James Andrews, that worked on Peterson...
Boy, the Boston Celtics just can’t catch a break this year.
They win six games in a row… only to lose their next six. They lose Rajon Rondo for the rest of the season… only to lose Jared Sullinger two games later. They run off a surprising seven-game win streak, beating the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets… only to have it snapped by the cellar-dwelling...
With Leandro Barbosa joining Rajon Rondo out of the lineup with a torn ACL, the Boston Celtics need to trade for a point guard, if they want to have any chance of making any noise this season. They now do not have a single point guard on the roster and must fix this immediately. However, they do not have much to offer besides future first and second round picks and 2012 first round...
One more game left, until the well rested break. The Boston Celtics finish the first half of the season, trying to get revenge on a Bulls team that beat us by a lucky shot by Marco Belinelli. But my point of this article is not about that game, but it is for the Celtics to rest up and get ready for the crazy second half of the season.
We are so many players down, I have lost track...
With all of the recent injuries, the Celtics could use additional scoring from Courtney Lee.
Before the season, the Boston Celtics were expected to use Courtney Lee as the replacement for Avery Bradley until Bradley returned from having surgery on both of his shoulders in the summer. Since Bradley returned on January 2nd against the Memphis Grizzlies, Lee’s minutes were lowered...

Welp, I really didn’t want to start this day off with doom and gloom for C’s fans, but obviously, the Barbosa injury is the big story, and only real “news”. He’ll undergo an MRI this morning in Boston...

Well, that was ugly. But a win is a win. The comments were pretty funny as the Bulls fans hated on their own team and coveted Celtics players. I find it hilarious that other fans hate on Tommy because he's a homer. That's exactly why I love him so much. My favorite comments are in bold. What are yours?
Per all these rumors, maybe some players will switch jerseys...
Although it hasn’t exactly slowed them down, the injury bug struck again in Boston, as Leandro Barbosa became the latest in a disconcertingly long line of Celtics who will miss the remainder of the 2012-13 campaign with an injury. Will it be enough to slow the momentum the franchise has built over the course of the past few weeks, gaining traction in the Eastern Conference and...

Here we go again. It looks like the Boston Celtics have lost another player, as veteran guard Leandro Barbosa could miss the entire season.
The severity of the injury is unclear, but it certainly had the look of an injury that will sideline the veteran for a significantly long period of time – maybe even the entire season.
