Barbosa's Season Appears Over
The Celtics streak came to an end last night in Charlotte, the team just seemed to run out of gas after riding a wild hot streak. Leandro Barbosa went down with a knee injury in the third quarter of the loss, Gary Washburn tweets that Kevin Garnett has been told Barbosa's season is over. The injuries wont stop piling up for Boston, Barbosa was doing a great job filling in for the Celtics in their "Rondo-less system".
The Celts will now have to search for another guard to plug into the system. Delonte West is still available and has a history with Doc Rivers. The team has just as big a void to fill in the front court as well with the hole Jared Sullinger left. Expect Danny Ainge to make plenty of additions, even if they do not come by trade, over the next couple weeks.
