CHARLOTTE, N.C. Rough times just got rougher for the Boston Celtics who may be without Leandro Barbosa.

Barbosa, who has seen his playing time increase since Rajon Rondo's season-ending torn right ACL injury, crumbled to the ground near the end of the third quarter with a left knee injury.

The severity of the injury is unclear, but it certainly had the look of an injury that will sideline the veteran for a significantly long period of time - maybe even the entire season.

The injury was severe enough to where Barbosa could not get up on his own when it happened. Instead he had to be helped off the floor by teammate and fellow native of Brazil, Fab Melo, along with team trainer Ed Lacerte.

If Barbosa is out for the remainder of the season, he would be the third Celtic player to suffer a season-ending injury in less than a month.

Rajon Rondo suffered a torn right ACL injury Jan. 25 against the Atlanta Hawks. He was taken to a nearby hospital two days later for what was supposed to be precautionary X-rays.

It was determined then that he had a torn right ACL injury and would be lost for the season - just minutes before the Celtics hosted the Miami Heat on Jan. 27.

Less than a week later, Jared Sullinger had back spasms that forced him to leave Boston's Jan. 30 game against Sacramento in the first quarter.

Two days later, he was having season-ending back surgery.

You've got to feel for the Celtics. We've had our leading scorer out but better to get him back for the 2cd. half of the season then to lose him then.
I wonder who they'll go after now. There really aren't any free agents available that could help them and I think they're over the L.T. as it is.

The Celtics can't catch a break with the injuries this season.

Forget this season, injuries have robbed the Celtics of at least another championship since 2008.

I know that a lot of message board sweeties didn't like Barbosa's time here. But I always thought he was a good scorer for us who just happened to hit a slump at the worst possible time. Sorry to see this for any player. I would even be sorry for LeMe if it happened to him.

Maybe it's for the best that he doesn't like any Pacer players.

Hmmm, with all these injuries happening to players Vnzla likes, and Danny has been out with an injury all year....I guess we have found out Vnzla is a secret Granger fan.

Yea, if they think it's a torn ACL..it's likely a torn ACL.

Terrible news.
