Avery Bradley G BOS 4 weeks ago

Bradley, in his fifth season with the Celtics, produced very similar numbers to the prior season, posting 32 minutes, 13.9 points, 1.8 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.6 made threes per game for the 2014/15 season.

Bradley's two main differences from the prior season were his games played and attempted three pointers. The oft-injured Bradley played and started in 77 games this season, a career best. He also attempted 1.6 threes per game, up from 1.3 the prior season. Going forward, the Celtics are clearly anxious to upgrade the roster. Can they afford to continue with two defensive-minded starting guards in Bradley and young Marcus Smart? Probably not. GM Danny Ainge, with his large trust of draft picks, will surely attempt some big changes this offseason. How that will affect Bradley's playing time is yet to be determined. Stay tuned.

Bradley led the Celtics is shots taken Thursday night, hoisting 18 attempts, making seven.

Unfortunately, his 39% shooting Thursday marked his most accurate effort in three playoff games versus Cleveland. All three leading Celtic guards have struggled against the Cavaliers' notably aggressive playoff perimeter defense.

Bradley posted eight points, four rebounds, and a steal over 29 minutes in Tuesday's Game 2 loss to Cleveland.

Bradley has played 60 minutes over the first two games of Boston's opening round series against Cleveland, but has only produced 15 points on 6-of-19 shooting from the floor. While he has been getting enough minutes and shots thus far in the series, he hasn't been converting those field goal attempts and isn't adding enough in other categories to have much value in daily formats.

Bradley (quad) played 31 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Cavaliers, finishing with seven points (3-10 FG, 1-6 3Pt), two rebounds and three assists.

Bradley had missed his previous game due to a quad bruise, so considering he played a full 31 minutes Sunday, it's likely he's over the quad injury and will be ready to play again in game two on Tuesday. Bradley really struggled with his shot in this game, so he'll look to have a bounce-back outing and post numbers closer to his season average of 13.9 points per game on Tuesday.

Bradley (quad) confirmed Friday that he'll play in Sunday's Game 1 against the Cavaliers, Scott Souza of MetroWest Daily reports.

As expected, Bradley will be in the lineup after sitting out Wednesday's regular season finale with a quad bruise. The quad stiffened up after Tuesday's practice, which is what led to the absence. It's looking like it was merely precautionary, however, so Bradley should be fine going forward.

Bradley (quad) will not play in Wednesday's season finale.

Coach Brad Stevens said Bradley got bumped in the quad and is fine but with the Celtics locked into a playoff spot they will opt to sit him out in the final game of the regular season.

Bradley suffered left quad contusion Tuesday and will not return.

While he should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game, coach Brad Stevens has already said that he may rest players in the season finale in preparation for the playoffs, so it would make sense if Bradley was held out.

Coach Brad Stevens said he may "potentially" rest players against the Bucks on Wednesday, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports.

Stevens did not elaborate as to which players may rest, but Bradley would certainly be in the conversation. At this point, it's hypothetical, but keep an eye on Bradley's status, as well as that of the Celtics' other regulars, in advance of Wednesday's finale.

Bradley scored 30 points (12-23 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with eight rebounds and two assists in 39 minutes Monday against the Hornets.

Bradley had scored 27 points in his last three games combined, so he really stepped up his offensive game Monday. Usually a defensive staple, Bradley has failed to record a steal in three of his last four games. Even with his recent struggles, he can provide fantasy owners with plenty of value on nights like tonight.

Bradley scored 20 points (8-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes Monday against the Nets.

Bradley continues to provide plenty of value from behind the arc as he has hit at least two three-pointers in five of his last seven games. He is one of the better overall scoring options for the Celtics and should continue to be a solid fantasy contributor down the stretch.
