Rajon Rondo, Jared Sullinger, and now Leandro Barbosa will miss the rest of the 2012-13 season after losing his footing on a stopping motion towards the basket during Monday’s loss 94-91.
Kevin Garnett reported to CSNNE’s A. Sherrod Blakely that they received news that Barbosa will not play again in this season.
Garnett said the #Celtics players are being told Barbosa is done for the season. #bigblow

This is a huge blow considering how good Leandro Barbosa has been for Doc Rivers’ team as of late posting 6.8 points and 2.1 assists in the last 10 games.
As expected prior to the injury, Celtics were looking to add a few players, and now Danny Ainge must find replacements.
