The injury bug has never bitten the Celtics this hard in one season in this era. It just seems like the basketball gods do want the Celtics to succeed this season.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Barbosa will have an MRI performed on the knee tomorrow morning in Boston.
"It's not looking great," Rivers said of Barbosa's injury. "But we'll see."
The disappointment of seeing their season-best seven game winning streak come to an end was evident.
But the potential loss of Barbosa seemed to sting even more.
"We're falling like flies right now," said Boston's Kevin Garnett. "It's tough. It's just tough all the way around. You messing around with these guys and then all of a sudden you see a season-ender, season-ending injuries ... it's tough, man. We're grinding right now."
When asked later if he was pretty much being told that Barbosa's season is over, Garnett responded, "pretty much."
I have feel like crap right now, and the loss to the Bobcats is second to the possible loss of Barbosa for the season. This is a big issue for the Celtics, and Ainge has a ton of pressure to get some bodies in here quick. How, and the world will he do it?
