As if the Boston Celtics (20-23) season wasn't going bad enough, they just recieved the worst news possible - An MRI revealed that Rajon Rondo has suffered a torn right ACL and he will miss the rest of the season.Rajon Rondo suffered a hyperextended right knee on Friday night in an overtime loss to the Atlanta Hawks.  The Celtics blew a 27 point lead in that game but unfortunately for them the news of Rondo was worse than that.Rondo attempted to warm up for Sunday's game, but the injury did not improve. The team elected to scratch him and he traveled to New England Baptist Hospital for an MRI. The team revealed the news via its Twitter account during the second half. VIA ESPNWith Rondo done for the year, third year player Avery Bradley (35% owned in Yahoo) will take over as the starting point guard for the remainder of the season.  Bradley has never averaged 10 points or more than 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in any season but at this point he is a must add in all fantasy leagues, especially if you are a Rajon Rondo fantasy owner.Bradley will see his minutes increase and he will be relied on heavily to spread the ball around, which will increase his assist totals and having the ball in his hands for most of the game, you have to assume he will be averaging 10-14 points a game.Other players you might want to add are - Jason Terry (56% owned), Leandro Barbosa (2% owned) Eric Bledsoe (26% owned), Ramon Sessions (56% owned), Luke Ridnour (49% owned), J.J. Barea (11% owned), Kirk Hinrich (28% owned)
