The Celtics’ injury woes continued Friday with another crippling season-ending injury. Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Celtics rookie forward Jared Sullinger will miss the rest of the season with a back injury. Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger will miss the rest of the season with a back injury, league sources tell Y! Sports. He will need surgery.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) February 01, 2013 The Celtics are already playing without Rajon Rondo who they lost for the rest of the season with a knee injury. Sulilnger didn’t practice Thursday, and there didn’t seem to be too much concern over his status. There was even some thought originally that he’d play Friday against Orlando. “I’m not that concerned,” Doc Rivers told reporters Thursday. “Can he miss games here or there? He may, but it’s not anything [long-term] or anything like that. “My guess is that he plays with it every day. I keep saying, because I had a back injury my whole career, once you have a back, you have a back. It never goes away. You just have to play through it.” Sullinger, who saw his draft stock fall because of the back issues, had been a pleasant surprise for the C’s this season. He appeared in 45 games and averaged 6.0 points and 5.9 rebounds per game while seeing 20 minutes per night.
