Rajon Rondo Tears ACL

January 27 2013 at 1:40pm CDT By Sean Highkin

Rajon Rondo has torn his right ACL and will miss the remainder of the 2012/13 season. He was a late scratch from the Celtics' Sunday game against the Heat, and his injury was previously reported as a hyperextended knee. However, ESPN's Doris Burke reported during the telecast that Rondo was informed by team doctors that he had in fact suffered a torn ACL.

Boston's point guard duties will be manned primarily by Avery Bradley and Leandro Barbosa. It is unclear whether the Celtics will look for more point guard help, or whether this affects their plans to possibly move Paul Pierce.
