Boston Celtics: How Could The C's Adapt If Rajon Rondo Went Down With an Injury?

There’s a thought I want nothing to do with.  It’s a worst case scenario, but with Rajon Rondo’s recent plantar fasciitis development, it’s something that Boston Celtics fan should at least give some thought to, so their worlds don’t come crashing down should their biggest fear come true.

Rondo has been electric so far this season.   He’s shooting 50% from the floor, leading to 11 points per game and dishing out assists at a record pace of nearly 15 a game.  Plus he makes his teammates better.  He creates their opportunities.  This is news to no one, but it’s not like Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, or Kevin Garnett have a great deal of difficulty getting their shots off, still most green machines require electricity to run.

So the question that no one is thinking is what would happen if Rondo went down with an injury?  Could the team still perform at a high level?  

The answer unfortunately isn’t yes.  It’s no.  Let’s examine the troubles that would arise.
