OFFICIAL WORD FROM TEAM: Here's what the Celtics sent out in a news release this afternoon: The Boston Celtics announced today that guard Leandro Barbosa underwent an MRI this morning at New England Baptist Hospital after his left knee injury last night against the Charlotte Bobcats. The MRI revealed that Barbosa suffered a torn ACL in his left knee. No surgery date has been scheduled and he will be out for the remainder of the season.
The Celtics were pretty lucky to snag Barbosa for the veteran minimum. He's a guy who could have earned a little more money on any other team. But he came to Boston for a crack at a title. Just like the teams leader. Barbosa is done for the season. If you think the Celtics can find a player like Barbosa in the free agent pool. Your mistaken. Rumors, or fans dreams of Allen Iverson, or Gilbert Arenas won't fix the loss of Barbosa. The Celtics should just focus on a guy who can either score, or a guy who can actually set up an offense. Danny needs to find a few guys, and like I said where will he do that?
The Celtics are down to 10 healthy players, and who can they even trade? The Celtics are losing a guy who can give you a quick 10-15 points. They don't call him the Brazilian blur for nothing.
