As it turns out, Leandro Barbosa’s knee injury from last night is much more severe than anticipated. He is also done for the season with a torn ACL. How many torn ACL’s can one team endure in their backcourt. Also, what’s with the increasing number of ACL injuries in sports these days?
But despite this set back, don’t count the Celtics out just yet.
The Boston Celtics have announced that Leandro Barbosa is done for the year as an MRI revealed a torn ACL after he suffered a knee injury Monday night. This marks the third Celtics player lost for the season in the last month after Rajon Rondo also suffered a torn ACL and Jared Sullinger was forced to undergo back surgery.
