The Celtics snapped a six game losing streak on Sunday with a 100-98 double-overtime win over the Miami Heat, but had to do it without Rajon Rondo. Rondo experienced soreness before the game and thought he a hamstring issue, but tests revealed a torn ACL, which means the point guard will be missing the remainder of the season.

Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich to discuss ACL injuries in the NBA, the extent of Rondo’s injury, Delonte West and the rebuilding effort.

The guys started out talking about the timeline for an ACL injury and how other NBA players have looked coming off an injury like this. It didn’t seem like the injury was that bad due to the fact Rondo was walking around and only felt soreness. From what Washburn can gather what was the extent of the injury?

They also discussed what the offense will look like without Rondo? Will the Celtics try to bring in a piece? Could we see the return of Delonte West?

With players like Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett getting older the Celtics must be thinking about rebuilding, but could this Rondo injury set the team back when it comes to making moves for the future?
