Bradley went to see a specialist on Thursday after aggravating his groin injury on Wednesday. He made it through the game fine, logging 29 minutes while hitting 7-of-16 from the field while chipping in with three rebounds an an assist. It appears safe to keep him active in fantasy leagues if you reserved him as a precaution. Jan 20 - 12:17 AM

Ish Smith, Avery Bradley, Reggie Bullock, Tobias Harris and Andre Drummond will start against the Wizards on Friday.

So Bradley will be out there after his trip to see a doctor on Thursday. His owners can throw him in their lineups and hope he can capitalize on the Wizards struggling lately.

Avery Bradley (groin) is active for Friday night against the Wizards.

He saw a specialist on Thursday and it sounds like he'll be ready to go. To be clear, this doesn't necessarily mean he'll be a full go. Bradley has not looked right for most of this season and there's a chance he's playing through this injury. He's still a hold in most leagues.
Jan 19 - 6:22 PM

Avery Bradley (groin), Stanley Johnson (hip), and Luke Kennard (thumb) all went through shootaround and are considered "50/50" to play Friday vs. Washington.

Bradley saw a specialist in Philadelphia on Thursday and had an injection to help with the injury. Coach Stan Van Gundy told reporters at shootaround that he "feels Bradley will go." However, we will have to wait until closer to tip before we have confirmation on these players. Langston Galloway would see an uptick in minutes if Bradley or Kennard were unable to suit up.

Avery Bradley (groin) is "50-50" to play vs. the Wizards on Friday.

Bradley saw a specialist in Philly on Thursday and had an injection to help with the injury, and we should have a clearer picture of his status after shootaround. If he's ruled out, expect Luke Kennard and Langston Galloway to benefit the most, especially if Stanley Johnson (hip) is still out of commission.
Jan 18 - 2:24 PM

Avery Bradley said after Wednesday's game that he's going back to Philadelphia to see a specialist for treatment on his nagging groin injury.

Bradley finished the game with 19 points on 8-of-19 shooting, three 3-pointers, three boards, two assists and two steals in 35 minutes. Shooting percentages continue to weigh down his value, at 41.4% field goals and 77.9% free throws, but he's contributing enough points (15.7), threes (2.0) and steals (1.2) to be worth holding most contexts. The real key is his health, of course, and owners should check for updates over the next few days -- Detroit plays on Friday, so we'll consider him questionable for that one.

Avery Bradley (groin) is in the starting lineup against the Raptors on Wednesday.

He'll have his hands full and is likely looking at DeMar DeRozan. Bradley was starting to heat up before he missed practice on Tuesday, so it makes sense to start him in standard leagues.
Jan 17 - 7:12 PM

Stan Van Gundy said he thinks Avery Bradley (groin) and Luke Kennard (thumb) will be able to play Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

Both players participated at shootaround, and it sounds like they'll be fighting through the pain tonight. We should get a firm update just prior to tip-off, but season-long owners can plan on having these guys active. Anthony Tolliver is no longer a very attractive streamer in most leagues.
Jan 17 - 6:21 PM

Avery Bradley (groin) and Luke Kennard (thumb) will try to play Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

Bradley and Kennard sat out Tuesday's practice, and it's concerning that this groin issue is flaring up again for Bradley after he missed seven games with the same issue in December. Both these guys appear to be headed for a game-time decision, and if they're out, Anthony Tolliver would likely slot back into the starting five and there would be more minutes available for Langston Galloway. Stay tuned.

Avery Bradley (groin) did not practice on Tuesday and is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors.

This is concerning news, as Bradley was sidelined for seven straight games from mid-December through early January due to a right groin strain. Hopefully, this is more of a maintenance day off for Bradley, as opposed to a re-aggravation. We'll have to wait for a clear update from coach Stan Van Gundy before jumping to conclusions. Luke Kennard (thumb) and Stanley Johnson (hip) are also questionable for Wednesday, which means Detroit may be shorthanded at SG and on the wing.
Jan 16 - 1:28 PM

Avery Bradley's shot finally started falling on Saturday, as he went 10-of-19 from the field for 26 points, with a 6-of-10 mark from downtown.

Bradley added three rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 38 minutes vs. the Bulls tonight. Fantasy owners probably did a double-take when looking at the boxscore tonight, as this is the sixth time all season AB has made more than half of his shots. He's starting to warm up after missing a chunk of time with a groin injury, so hopefully owners' patience will continue to pay off.
Jan 13 - 11:46 PM

Avery Bradley hit 10-of-23 shots to score 24 points vs. the Pelicans on Monday, going 3-of-9 from deep with six assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block.

Bradley did his damage in 35 minutes and this is good enough for most owners -- he shot just 43.5% from the field, but that's his highest mark since returning from a groin injury earlier this month. He's been hard to own in roto leagues due to lousy percentages and low supporting stats, but maybe this will get him going.
Jan 8 - 11:47 PM

Avery Bradley made 2-of-8 from the field for four points with one assist and two turnovers in 22 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

More like A Very Badly played season, right? He can't hit his jumpers and his defense really isn't as good as it's been either. Bad season aside, Bradley was just too good last season and he did play 38 minutes in his return on Wednesday. We would still suggest holding him in just about all leagues.
Jan 5 - 9:23 PM

Avery Bradley (groin) returned on Wednesday with 15 points on 6-of-19 shooting, four rebounds, four assists, three 3-pointers, one steal and one turnover in 38 minutes.

Bradley went straight into the starting lineup and he didn't have any restrictions -- hence the heavy playing time. His return bumped Anthony Tolliver to the bench and it's time to make sure Bradley isn't still floating on your waiver wire. Just be aware that his 42.5% shooting has been an anchor this season -- that should rise as he gets back into rhythm following a lengthy absence.
Jan 4 - 12:08 AM

Avery Bradley (groin) will not have a restriction against the Heat on Wednesday.

He was announced as a go this morning and has been going through practice since Sunday. Bradley was a huge letdown to start his 2017, but maybe playing hurt was holding him back. He should be picked back up in all standard leagues and maybe he looks more like the stud he was with the Celtics in 2016-17.
