Updated: February 1, 2013

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.
