ESPN/ABC confirmed our worst fears, that Rajon Rondo has, in fact, suffered a torn ACL.  This is an injury that will require surgery, and end Rajon Rondo’s season. This is a crushing blow to the Celtics and may spell the end of any hopes this team had of making a playoff run.  The Celtics now lack any true point guards, which kills them when they need to try to execute in the half court. The Celtics started Courtney Lee in the back court today in Rondo’s absence, and I would assume he’ll continue to play that role.  The Celtics defense has looked good, and it’s looking like this team is going to have to adjust its style a bit to move forward. As for what moves this will lead to….. time will tell.  The Celtics may band together, show signs of life knowing they have to make up for Rondo’s absence, and the C’s could only make some minor moves to help shore up the bench.  The Celtics may fall deeper into their doldrums, leading to more major moves, and the true closing of the Celtics window.
