The Celtics have now confirmed what multiple reports had the Celtics fearing. An MRI has shown Rajon Rondo has a torn right ACL. He is out for the season, and in all likelihood will be out for at least a portion of next season as well. The news is obviously is incredibly damaging to both the team’s short and long term prospects. We’ll have plenty of time to break it down in the upcoming days here at CelticsHub but one thing is sure. Trades will be coming and they could very well involve Paul Pierce.
For now though, let’s give it up for Rondo who likely played a significant portion of the Hawks double overtime loss on a torn ACL. Kid is a trooper.
