Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Welp, I really didn’t want to start this day off with doom and gloom for C’s fans, but obviously, the Barbosa injury is the big story, and only real “news”. He’ll undergo an MRI this morning in Boston:
Celtics faced with more adversity-CSNNE:
Regardless of whether Leandro Barbosa’s left knee injury ends his season, the Boston Celtics find themselves once again having to deal with adversity.
A slow start led to cat calls for Danny Ainge to “blow” the team up, whatever that means.
A six-game winning streak quieted things momentarily, only to be followed by a six game losing skid.
Rajon Rondo went down for the season with a torn right ACL injury that was diagnosed on Jan. 27. Just three days later, Jared Sullinger had back surgery and he too was lost for the season.
Boston ran off seven straight wins, so all was good … u...

Danny Ainge must be spending more time in his office right now than in his house, spending more time glued to the phone than trying to get something to eat. I can picture him already as a second version of Doctor House standing close to a whiteboard with a marker and asking for opinion to his staff for options to fill up the roster. The Celtics have only 10 players available, with...
Our Boston Celtics have not lost a game since the double OT loss in Atlanta on January 25th. It was the last game Rajon Rondo has played this season, and likely the last NBA game he will play until some point in the 2013-2014 NBA season. Seven straight wins. No Rajon Rondo (or Jared Sullinger). How has this been possible without our best player, and one of the best and most unique...
The Boston Celtics have two guards with torn ACLs. They received updates on both. Fortunately, the news on Rajon Rondo's knee is positive. However, Leandro Barbosa who tore his ACL just a couple days ago, did not get quite as encouraging news.According to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe, Rondo's knee surgery went well.Danny Ainge tells Globe Rondo underwent ACL...

Josh Smith has again been linked to Boston by a respected NBA reporter.
I keep hearing Josh Smith's primary destination is Boston.— Gery Woelfel (@GeryWoelfel) February 14, 2013
"Primary destination" can mean trade destination or as a free agent.
It's been well documented the immensely talented, immensely frustrating Smith is a good friend of Rajon Rondo....
The Celtics host the Bulls tonight at the Garden (7:30 tip), in the 4th and final meeting between the clubs this season. So far this year the Bulls have won 2 of the 3 match-ups, including the only game in Boston. Here's what rounds 1-3 have looked like.

Things appeared pretty grim for the Boston Celtics just a few weeks ago.
Rajon Rondo went down with a torn knee ligament, and the team's playoff hopes took a major hit.
Well, the Celtics haven't lost in the seven games since and their latest victory proved they're going to be tough to beat - even without their star point guard. Paul Pierce had 27 points, 14 rebounds...
Paul Pierce and the Celtics have had a chance to show their toughness with Rondo out
The Boston Celtics won their seventh straight game Sunday, this one a triple overtime epic against the Denver Nuggets. It was another bar fight for a Celtics team that has become accustomed to them over the past two seasons. Even in the wake of that game, the major national story remains the same...
Boy, the Boston Celtics just can’t catch a break this year.
They win six games in a row… only to lose their next six. They lose Rajon Rondo for the rest of the season… only to lose Jared Sullinger two games later. They run off a surprising seven-game win streak, beating the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets… only to have it snapped by the cellar-dwelling...
Danny Ainge said Leandro Barbosa will undergo ACL surgery next month after his MCL sprain heals.

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...
After cooling off the NBA's hottest team in their last game, the Boston Celtics will try to extend their winning streak against the team with the league's worst record.
The Celtics look to win their eighth game in a row since All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo went down on Monday night when they visit the Charlotte Bobcats, losers of seven straight.
Boston (27-23) appeared...
