It was announced earlier today that Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo would miss today’s game with the Miami Heat because of a hyper-extended knee.
The news turned out to be much worse for the Celtics.
After an MRI and confirmation by ESPN’s Doris Burke, it was announced that Rajon Rondo had a torn ACL and would miss the remainder of the season.
This is a blow the Celtics will be hard-pressed to survive. Already struggling this season, they just lost arguably, their most irreplaceable player.
Here are the possible Celtics that could step in for the rest of the season:
|8.1 pts||1.5 reb||1.0 ast|
|9.8 pts||1.9 reb||2.2 ast|
|4.6 pts||.8 reb||1.1 ast|
The Celtics sit on the final playoff spot in the East as the 8th seed, with a 20-23 record, entering today.
