Source says Leando Barbosa done for year with torn left ACL #celtics45 minutes ago via Twitter for AndroidReplyRetweetFavorite@GwashNBAGlobegary washburnGary Washburn confirms our worst suspicions: Barbosa is in fact out for the season.  Those ACLs have been nasty for the Celtics, this one was easier to accept as it was clear Barbosa was in serious pain last night after the injury, whereas Rondo’s was more of subtle killer.The Celtics are now short another ball-handler and eyes immediately turn to former Celtic draftee Delonte West and current Maine Red Claw Shelvin Mack.  The former was signed to the Texas Legends D-league team, but has yet the report.  The latter had a short run with the Wizards before John Wall came back from injury and played effectively.  Adrian Wojnarowski speaks on both of these potential Celtics additions: In Boston's search for stopgap at point guard, Shelvin Mack's a possibility, among others, sources say. Delonte West isn't a consideration.about 1 hour ago via webReplyRetweetFavorite@WojYahooNBAAdrian WojnarowskiIt also becomes more and more likely the Celtics will look for a ball handler in any trade heading towards the deadline, as the Celtics continue to look for point guard and big man as we get closer to February 21.Follow Jesse on Twitter: @J_duderanch
