Avery Bradley G BOS 11 Days
Since returning from an injury three games ago, Avery Bradley has gone 13-of-16 from beyond the arc.
Bradley has really been draining his 3-point attempts lately, and with a favorable matchup vs. the 76ers on Monday, that hot streak could continue. Despite a laundry list of injuries, Bradley has turned in a nice season, improving his averages across the board in points (14.7) rebounds (3.8) and shot attempts (13.5). If he can manage to stay healthy next season, he could be a nice asset to have on your fantasy roster.

Avery Bradley hit 9-of-15 shots and five 3-pointers for 25 points, eight rebounds, two assists and a steal on Saturday.
This one was easy to see coming, as Rajon Rondo and Jerryd Bayless were both out for the Celtics. Bradley wasn't a good shooter when he entered the league, but has turned it around to become a pretty consistent NBA scorer. Use him freely over the last couple games.

Avery Bradley scored a team-high 22 points during Friday's 106-103 win over the Bobcats, adding two boards, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers.
Apparently, he must have spent a lot of time shooting 3-pointers while out with his Achilles injury. In his two games back in the lineup, Bradley is 8-of-10 from the field on his way to averages of 23.0 points, 3.0 boards and 2.5 steals. Hopefully the back-to-back factor doesn't keep him out of the lineup on Saturday because he's played very well over the past couple months.

Celtics GM Danny Ainge said that Avery Bradley's injury history is "a concern," but the team is still "big fans of Avery's."
"He's very young, and they're not any injuries that have set him way back," Ainge said. "The shoulder injuries two years ago took away a summer of his development." Avery has missed 22 gamest this season due to right ankle and Achilles problems, and it will be interesting to see how he's valued in restricted free agency this summer.

Avery Bradley played well in his return to the lineup on Wednesday vs. the Hawks, making 8-of-12 from the field for 24 points with four boards, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers.
He made all four free throws, all four attempts from deep and only turned the ball over once. Bradley played 35 minutes tonight, which is a lot higher than many expected after missing three games due to an Achilles issue. He's having a career year and is worth a look in all standard leagues.

Avery Bradley (Achilles) will start vs. the Hawks on Wednesday night.
It's his first game in the lineup this month and it moves Jerryd Bayless back to the bench. If he's able to stay healthy tonight, Bradley could be worth a look in standard leagues. He's really improved as a scorer and Rajon Rondo figures to get another game of rest on Saturday.

Avery Bradley looked good in practice on Monday and coach Brad Stevens is expecting him to play on Wednesday against the Hawks.
He pulled off a 360 dunk today, so he should be good to go. Jerryd Bayless will take a hit with Bradley's return.

Avery Bradley (Achilles) returned to practice on Monday, leaving him questionable to return vs. the Hawks on Wednesday.
Bradley has missed the past three games due to tendinitis in his Achilles. As long as the injury eases up he should be in uniform, since coach Brad Stevens has no intention of resting healthy players down the stretch.

Avery Bradley (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Sixers.
Bradley was a late scratch on Wednesday and was scheduled to be reevaluated Thursday. There's no word yet on what doctors found. We'd expect Bradley to sit and Jerryd Bayless to draw the start Friday night.

Avery Bradley (Achilles) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Wizards.
He tried to warmup up and it must not have went well. Bradley has dealt with some problems with the lower part of his right leg with an ankle injury costing him significant time earlier in the year. He could be back for the weekend, but fantasy owners probably shouldn't stash guys with a fairly low upside this late in the season. Jerryd Bayless is expected to start.
