BOSTON – The Boston Celtics were dealt a haymaker Sunday afternoon when they learned that their All-Star point guard, Rajon Rondo, will miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee.

News of Rondo’s injury was filtered out to reporters during the third quarter of Boston’s 100-98 victory over the Miami Heat. Rumors had been circulating for hours, but confirmation of the news quickly altered the direction of Boston’s season.
