While playing the Atlanta Hawks this past Friday, Boston Celtics’ starting point guard and All-Star Rajon Rondo had hyperextended his right knee in the fourth quarter. Due to the setback, Rondo was scheduled to have an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.

Today against the Miami Heat, Rajon Rondo didn’t suit up for the highly televised game. Instead, Courtney Lee was the replacement at the point guard position.

While the Heat/Celtics game was taking place, the Boston faithful and their fans received bad news that would haunt the team for the entire 2012-13 season. According to Sherrod Blakely of the Celtics Insider, the league’s most potent assist machine in Rajon Rondo is done for the year due to a torn ACL in his right knee.

The Celtics who had clear goals of making another run at the championship could possibly change the direction of their plans due to today’s results. Celtics’ coach Doc Rivers will now be forced to replace Rondo with either Courtney Lee or Avery Bradley at point guard with Leandro Barbosa, Jason Terry and Jeff Green all receiving a bump in playing time.

A Boston Celtics’ squad that’s already considered an “old” NBA team just got even more fragile.

  1. And everyone who had Rondo leading the league in triple-doubles in my NBA Predict the Future contest suddenly went “Awwwwwwwww!”

  2. Owner Wyc Grousbeck and GM Danny Ainge will pull the trigger to get a point guard for the team. The loss of Rondo will be devastating.

      You’re right about that one, Alan. You can’t replace someone like Rajon Rondo so we’re not exactly sure how the Celtics are going to approach this problem. If you ask us, even though Boston ended up beating the Heat that same game, it’s pretty much over for the Celtics this season.
