09:08 PM ET 02.01 | When things in Boston seemingly couldn't get any worse, the Celtics have suffered another tough blow. The team's promising rookie Jared Sullinger will join Rajon Rondo on the list of players that will miss the rest of the 2012-13 campaign. Sullinger left Wednesday night's game against Sacramento with what was reported as back spasms. Now, the Celtics have learned the young power forward will require season-ending surgery. Sullinger is averaging 6.0 points and 5.9 rebounds in his debut season, but it is his constant hustle and hard-working attitude that has won over the fans in Boston.

So much for the playoffs, guess the raps have a chance to get that 8th seed.
