AVERY BRADLEY OUT FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON
Mon, 28 May 2012 12:11 PM EDT

Boston Celtics 2nd-year shooting guard Avery Bradley needs surgery on his ailing left shoulder and likely will miss the rest of the postseason, team president of basketball operations Danny Ainge recognized last Thursday. Baseball betting lines

“We’ll probably discover more here in the following few hours, but it’s looking that way,” Ainge declared during his weekly interview on a radio station. “I think these reports are correct – at least the reports I’ve read. Somebody expounded it had been a 90% chance that he’s done for the season, and it’s looking that way.”

The surgery is needed to repair small tears that have compromised the structure of his left shoulder, according to a league source.

Bradley has endured a considerable number of dislocations in the 2011-12 Season, including 3 in the postseason. After the shoulder came out in a Game Four loss in Philadelphia in the Eastern Conference semifinals, doctors concluded it was too dangerous to put him back on the court with the potential for a rather more serious injury, according to the source. Bradley has missed Games Five and Six.

With surgery certain, Bradley is predicted to undergo the procedure as fast as the team determines he’s able. According to the source, Bradley is taking a look at a 4-month recovery process, but the hope is he is going to be ready in time for training camp in October.

Pressed on what the summer might comprise for Bradley, Ainge declared “Avery requires surgical treatment. So he should have a summer full of rehabilitation, and should be good to go next year.”

Bradley, a 1st-round pick (19th overall) in the 2010 draft, will miss his 3rd sequential summer league. After being drafted by Boston, he went through ankle surgery related to a draft workout that likely made him slide late in the 1st round. He missed both summer league and almost all of training camp that year. This past offseason, the lockout wiped out summer ball and shortened training camp.

Regardless of all of that missed activity, Bradley appeared as a key member of the Celtics’ rotation this season, taking over the starting shooting guard role when Ray Allen battled his own ankle injury late in the regular season.

Bradley’s tireless on-the-ball defense has drawn notice across the league, and he earned 2 coaches’ votes for the NBA’s All-Defensive teams (including one 1st-team vote).

According to the source, Bradley is unhappy over not getting back on the court and helps his team.

After Wednesday’s Game Six loss, Celtics coach Doc Rivers advised the team could not lament not having Bradley on the floor.

“Listen, it is what we have, you know what I mean?” Rivers asserted. “Obviously, Avery’s a good defender, but he isn’t out there, so I can’t worry about it. I actually can’t. I understand what you’re saying — their penetration, their (isolations) without Avery on the floor — clearly, they went to a lot of isos and they were picking who they wanted. But that is what I’d do. You cannot accuse them for doing it.”
