Avery Bradley underwent surgery to repair adductor and rectus abdominis muscles on Tuesday and will miss the rest of the regular season.
Six weeks to eight weeks is the recovery time on the surgery, according to Adrian Wojnarowski‏ of ESPN. 2017-18 was truly a lost season for Bradley. He saw his scoring, rebounding and assist numbers all drop dramatically. It's terrible timing for Bradley, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Wherever he lands, Bradley will likely be undervalued in fantasy drafts next October. Mar 13 - 6:23 PM

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Avery Bradley (groin) is not close at all to a return.

This has shutdown written all over it. Bradley may need offseason surgery and there's a good chance we don't see him again this season. This is terrible timing with Bradley hitting free agency this summer. Drop him if you haven't already.
Mar 9 - 9:01 PM

Avery Bradley (groin) said he's not sure if he will be able to play again this season.

"Right now, we're just taking it day by day, trying to be smart about this injury," Bradley said. "Just trying to see what the best decision is to make, what it is, what it's going to be." Clippers coach Doc Rivers recently said that Bradley may need offseason surgery, a brutal blow for the shooting guard as he heads into free agency this summer.
Mar 1 - 10:42 AM

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Avery Bradley (groin) may need offseason surgery.

"He’s one of the, if not the best, he’s one of the top five defensive guys on the ball in the league," Rivers said. "And that’s all movement there [in a players’ core muscles]. So it’s tough blow." The Clippers went ahead and said Bradley will miss the next 1-3 weeks, but Rivers added that he doesn't know when he will return. He's a safe drop in standard leagues and could be shut down late in the season heading into a contract year.

Avery Bradley (groin) will miss the next 1-3 weeks of action.

Doc Rivers said that while he doesn't know exactly when Bradley will be able to make it back to the court, he'll be out "a while," and that post-season surgery is something that's being discussed. Milos Teodosic, Tyrone Wallace and Austin Rivers will split his minutes, and with how bad Bradley has been this season, he belongs on the wire in most leagues at this point.

Avery Bradley (groin) has been ruled out against the Suns on Friday.

He is not expected to play and the team is concerned about his status going forward. There's a very good chance Bradley gets shut down for several games and his fantasy owners should have moved on by now. There will be more run for Milos Teodosic and Tyrone Wallace.
Feb 23 - 2:34 PM

Avery Bradley (athletic pubalgia) is not expected to play Friday night vs. the Suns.

It sounds like Bradley's injury will linger for an extended period of time. "We are concerned," coach Doc Rivers said on Thursday. "We've got to go through the right stuff and make sure he's in a good place with his health. I think we're going to send him to a doctor and let him check and see." Austin Rivers and Lou Williams are expected to soak up additional minutes in Bradley's absence.
Feb 23 - 11:07 AM

Avery Bradley (athletic pubalgia) will not play on Thursday vs. the Warriors.

This is an issue that could linger for the remainder of the season and coach Doc Rivers called him 50/50 for each game going forward. He wasn't worth owning before the injury, so his fantasy owners should look elsewhere for value. Austin Rivers and Milos Teodosic should pick up some of the slack, but this is Lou Williams' offense. Tyrone Wallace will start in Bradley's place and could have some deep-league appeal, but there should be better options on your wire.
Feb 22 - 1:56 PM

Avery Bradley (athletic pubalgia) is officially questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Warriors.

Bradley's injury is usually lumped into the catch-all phrase 'sports hernia', but specifically refers to "the disruption and/or separation of the more medial common aponeurosis from the pubis, usually with some degree of adductor tendon pathology." Clippers coach Doc Rivers suggested that Bradley's status for each game will be a toss-up depending upon how he feels, and this should be the last straw for most fantasy owners. Whenever he does miss games, Austin Rivers and Lou Williams should be ready to pick up the slack.
Feb 21 - 8:28 PM

Coach Doc Rivers said Avery Bradley (groin) is "50/50" to play on Thursday against the Warriors.

Additionally, Rivers said Bradley's injury is going to be a season-long issue, and his availability right now appears to be 50/50 every night going forward. Bradley had a groin injury just before he was traded to the Clippers, and now it looks like it may not go away. His fantasy owners may not want to deal with this issue and just drop him, especially with how poorly he's played this season.
Feb 21 - 2:10 PM

Avery Bradley said he's struggling to find his role in the Clippers offense.

"I think it’s a mix of me trying to find my rhythm and my game and trying to learn how to play off these guys," Bradley said. "They have a lot of offensive-minded guys on this team. So I have to figure out, and not only myself, but [coach Doc Rivers] has to figure out how he wants to use me." He's averaging 9.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.2 triples through six games and the impending free agent is losing money by the day.
Feb 15 - 10:07 AM

Avery Bradley scored 10 points with one rebound, one assist and one turnover in 22 minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Hey, maybe an optimistic view on this could've been a trip to TD Garden could get him going, but nope. Bradley is a fairly easy drop as arguably one of the most disappointing players this season.
Feb 14 - 11:47 PM

Avery Bradley hit 4-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, two assists and a steal in 28 minutes of Monday's win.

Yuck. After collecting eight rebounds in back-to-back games, Bradley didn't even have one tonight and if you're sick of dealing with his mediocrity this season, dropping him is certainly on the table. And there is no way we thought we'd be writing that about Bradley this season, but the fact remains he's been one of the most disappointing players in all of fantasy this season.
Feb 12 - 10:51 PM

Avery Bradley scored four points with eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 28 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

That's two games in a row with eight boards, which he surprisingly never hit once in his Pistons days. He's still not really doing anything special, averaging 10 points, 4.3 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and no treys on his previous games with L.A. If you want to drop him, we won't stop you.
Feb 10 - 10:43 PM

Avery Bradley scored 10 points with eight rebounds and nothing else in 28 minutes vs. his former Pistons on Friday.

Needless to say, the Pistons didn't have a tribute video for him in his first trip back to Little Caesars Arena. His eight rebounds were a season-high, but he has really fallen off in that category -- he grabbed 8+ rebounds 17 times last season. He's averaging 10.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in his first three games with the Clippers, and he's yet to hit a 3-pointer on seven attempts. He's a low-end fantasy asset, but there might be someone better on your wire.
