Celtics’ Leandro Barbosa Out For The Year With A Knee Injury

8483226The Boston Celtics received yet another blow to this season. This is pretty wild. Here’s A. Sherrod Blakely from Comcast Sportsnet New England.


Leandro Barbosa hurt his knee and was carried off the floor with 11.7 seconds left in the third quarter in Monday night against the Charlotte Bobcats. The Celtics would eventually lose the game against the Cats but this is an even bigger loss for Boston.

The Celtics have already lost rookie forward Jared Sullinger for the season due to back surgery. A few days before that, Rajon Rondo was out for the season because of a torn ACL. This is the third player they have lost for the season in less than three weeks.

Because of losing Rondo, it’s opened up some time for Barbosa, who supposedly asked management for a release. Barbosa was apparently being sought after by Brazilian professional teams, unlike the way NBA teams sought after him after the Summer Olympics. Boston signed him to the minimum on October, which was quite a drastic paycut from his previous contract as he was paid almost $15 million in the last two years of his previous deal.

The Celtics’ guard rotation from the start of the season consisted of Barbosa, Rondo, Avery Bradley, Jason Terry, and Courtney Lee. They had asked Keyon Dooling to return but he would eventually turn it down. So it looks like Boston may go look for a guard in the free agent pool or maybe eventually trade for one.

As mentioned, the Celtics lost to the Charlotte Bobcats in that game, 94-91. The Celtics had their seven-game winning streak snapped. Going into the game, Barbosa averaged 5.3 points in 40 games. He’s played just over 12 minutes per game. He was a dynamic sixth man for the Phoenix Suns as a combo guard and won the Sixth Man of the Year award in the 2006-07 season, averaging 18.1 points per game. He was then traded to the Toronto Raptors after the 2009-10 season for Hedo Turkoglu. Barbosa would then get shipped to Indiana halfway through last season for a second round draft pick.
