Avery Bradley scored 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting (3-of-4 from the stripe) in Boston's season-ending Game 4 loss to the Cavs, adding five rebounds, one three-pointer, on steal and one turnover through 40 minutes of action.
Bradley finally had a relatively healthy season this year, making it through 77 games. However, one healthy season doesn't completely remove the injury prone label from Bradley, and his 42.8 percent shooting from the field does weigh down his value. Still, his scoring (13.9), 3-point shooting (1.6), a steals (1.1) numbers make him worth owning as a low-end asset in standard leagues, and he'll be someone to consider towards the later rounds of next year's fantasy drafts.

Avery Bradley returned from a bruised quad on Sunday to score seven points on 3-of-10 shooting with two rebounds, three assists and one turnover.

He went 1-of-6 from downtown in 31 minutes and seemed a bit out of sorts after missing Boston's final game of the regular season. Bradley also struggled to contain Kyrie Irving defensively and he'll need to have a better game for the Celtics to even the series at 1-1 on Tuesday.

Avery Bradley (quad) will play in Game 1 against the Cavs on Sunday, as expected.

All signs were pointing towards Bradley being available after he sat out the last few games of the regular-season, and this report confirms it. Boston will need multiple guys to step up in a big way to avoid a sweep by the powerhouse that is the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Avery Bradley (quad) should be ready for the playoffs, according to coach Brad Stevens.

He missed his last couple games with a quad injury, but Stevens said after Wednesday's game "he should be ready for the playoffs," as reported by the Associate Press in the game recap.

Avery Bradley (quad) is not with the Celtics in Milwaukee for Wednesday's game.

It'll likely be Jae Crowder getting the start tonight for Bradley in the season finale. Coach Brad Stevens hinted some of his guys will be on a minutes limit, so we'll pass along any additional info as we receive it. The Celtics have nothing to play for and are locked in as the No. 7 seed.
Apr 15 - 6:18 PM

Avery Bradley will not return to Tuesday's game due to a left quad contusion.

Boston could cement themselves in the No. 7 seed with a win or a Pacers loss on Tuesday, but that's not enough reason to risk aggravating Bradley's injury with the playoffs looming. He finished with 14 points in 21 minutes. If he can't play on Wednesday, more minutes will open up for Isaiah Thomas, Phil Pressey and Jae Crowder.

Avery Bradley contributed a little bit of everything to the stat sheet during Sunday's win over the Cavs, putting up 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting, four assists, two steals, two 3-pointers and two turnovers through 28 minutes of action.

Excluding Bradley's poor shooting percentage (38.8 percent from the field), he's been playing relatively well through the month of April with averages of 12.2 points, 2.0 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.8 three-pointers per game. He's a decent low-end guy to own in deeper leagues for his contributions to the 3-point and steals categories.

Per Zach Lowe of Grantland, Danny Ainge passed up multiple trade deadline offers for Avery Bradley.

According to league sources, Ainge refused trade proposals from multiple teams who were offering low first-round picks and expiring contracts for Bradley at the trade deadline. While Bradley is coming off a big game, his inconsistency makes him a frustrating player to own and keeps him from being an add in standard fantasy leagues.

Avery Bradley scored 30 points against the Hornets on Monday with eight rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He was coming in ice cold over his previous three, averaging just 9.0 points, 2.0 boards and 1.3 assists. Bradley made just 40 percent from the field in his previous games this month and coach Brad Stevens may have just rode the hot hand. Bradley is a decent player to own in points leagues, but he doesn't add enough to his scoring totals to add in standard formats.
Mar 30 - 11:26 PM

Avery Bradley scored 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting (including two threes) with seven rebounds and one steal in Monday's win.

Bradley is playing well enough to be in most lineups and the return of Isaiah Thomas as soon as Wednesday will help get him even better looks.
Mar 23 - 10:25 PM

Avery Bradley grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds against the 76ers on Monday with 20 points, six assists, two steals and four 3-pointers on 8-of-14 from the field.

This is a massive game from Bradley and very uncharacteristic with so many other stats to go with the points. Although, his numbers have increased without Isaiah Thomas (back). In his last four, Bradley averaged 15.8 points, 5.8 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.3 treys on 40.9 percent from the field. He does have a little more appeal with Thomas out at least two more games, but he's not a must-grab unless you're looking for points.
Mar 16 - 11:28 PM

Avery Bradley started against the Pacers on Saturday with 16 points on 7-of-19 shooting, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He's attempted at least 16 shots from the field in each of his last three and that type of output should occur with or without Isaiah Thomas around. He's a top-70 play over his last 11 games and outside of a recent shooting slump, which will be helped when Thomas is around to make his life easier, there's no reason to think the numbers from that sample are too far off base.
Mar 14 - 10:19 PM

Avery Bradley is starting on Saturday against the Pacers.

This is getting a little ridiculous with teams and their official Twitter accounts tweeting out the wrong lineups a few minutes before games.
Mar 14 - 7:12 PM

The Celtics official Twitter account said Avery Bradley will come off the bench on Saturday.

The Celtics have a lot of good beat guys, so this info coming late is a surprise. It could be wrong or it could be a late switch.
Mar 14 - 7:01 PM

Avery Bradley returned from his elbow injury, started and had 17 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 8-of-17 shooting.

It's time to pick him up and think about getting him back into your lineup, but it's also important to note that Evan Turner and Marcus Smart both struggled tonight, clearing the way for Bradley's solid game. Smart hit 2-of-8 shots for five points, and Turner was 1-of-6 for four points.
