Over the past several years, the Boston Celtics have not had the greatest luck with injuries. Hopefully, that will change in 2012-13. As deep as the Celtics are, there are some players who have to avoid injury this preseason.
I don't care how talented a ballclub is. If one particular player goes down, the whole team can unravel. Just look at the 2008-09 season when Kevin Garnett hurt his knee in March. The C's went from championship favorites to second-round casualties.
In this article, I am not merely going to state the obvious. Clearly, the Celtics cannot afford to lose Garnett or Rajon Rondo. We all know that. What I am going to do is list some key role players that will severely hurt Boston should they get injured during the preseason.
