If losing all-star point guard Rajon Rondo wasn’t enough than what is? The Boston Celtics have yet another blow dealt to their season they lose rookie forward Jared Sullinger for the rest of the season as he underwent back surgery on Friday, the team announced.

“No, I’m not that concerned,” Rivers said before Thursday’s practice. “Could he miss games? Like I said [Wednesday], here and there he may. But it’s not anything career-threatening or anything like that.” (credit to ESPNBoston.com)

Sullinger was having a good rookie campaign through 45 games this season. He was averaging 6 ppg and 5.9 rpg while seeing about 19.8 mpg.

I've been apart of the Pro Sports Extra family since July of 2012. When I first got here, my role was very small. I joined the team as an analyst, but as time passed, my role eventually increased. As of today, I'm the co-host on the website's online radio show, I'm the lead NBA writer, I'm apart of the social media team, and in November of 2012, I was named Manager. I can honestly say that I'm happy in what I do. I have a vision for Pro Sports Extra, and I will do whatever it takes to make sure that vision comes true. We've had our tribulations, but we're recovering from it and it was truly a blessing in disguise. I'm from Flint, Michigan and unlike most Michiganders - I'm a Spurs fan (perfectly normal, right?) I'm currently a junior in high school and I plan on attending Ferris State University or Michigan State University. I'm going to major in journalism and it's a goal of mine to achieve a doctorate in that field. I'm constantly involved in the social media world and you can find me on Twitter @antgrovesPSE .
