Avery Bradley (left elbow strain) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.
Bradley isn't even traveling with the team right now, so we're going to have to consider him questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Magic as well. With Bradley sidelined, Evan Turner, Jae Crowder, and Isaiah Thomas will all have the opportunity to see extended minutes, with Thomas offering the most upside as the guy who will likely be asked to carry a heavier load on offense.

Date:

Avery Bradley made 3-of-9 shots to finish Tuesday's blowout loss with seven points, one rebound, one assist and zero steals in 24 minutes.

He's a combined 21-of-56 from the field over his past four games, a 37.5 percent mark that is doing his fantasy owners no favors. Bradley offers a trickle of boards and assists but his fantasy value is pegged to scoring, 3-pointers and steals, so an extended slump would be bad news. Hopefully he can find the range vs. Utah's defense on Wednesday.
Mar 3 - 9:30 PM

Avery Bradley struggled shooting on Sunday, going 5-of-17 from the field for 12 points with four rebounds, two assists and zero 3-pointers, steals or blocks.

Bradley was busy defensively vs. the Warriors' backcourt, which may have contributed to his offensive struggles, and fantasy owners can take solace in his hefty usage rate tonight, which led all starters. Bradley is a solid rest-of-season fantasy option despite his occasionally damaging field goal percentages.
Mar 1 - 8:42 PM

Avery Bradley scored 19 points on 8-of-18 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds, two assists and one steal in Friday's win over the Hornets.

Bradley looks great next to his pal Isaiah Thomas as he doesn't need the ball in his hands much and he's getting great looks in the flow of the offense. Yes, his recent spurt has come against a bunch of bad teams, but the Thomas bump looks real and he should be in all lineups right now.
Feb 28 - 1:42 AM

Avery Bradley scored 23 points on 8-of-14 shooting (including three treys) with four rebounds, three assists and six steals in Monday's road win over the Suns.

Bradley hit all four of his freebies for good measure. The addition of Isaiah Thomas is probably going to help him because of the point guard's ability to penetrate and find shooters on the perimeter. The two had extremely good chemistry tonight and Bradley should be owned in all formats.
Feb 24 - 12:47 AM

Avery Bradley made a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to send Sunday's game vs. the Lakers into overtime, finishing the Celtics' loss with 20 points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals.

He shot 8-of-20 overall and missed all three of his free throw attempts, but he didn't turn the ball over all game and his clutch 3-pointer is worth watching via the link below. Bradley has been a top-100 value over the past month but his role is bound to change with Isaiah Thomas entering the backcourt rotation, so fantasy owners shouldn't take Bradley's current projections as a given.

Feb 23 - 12:47 AM

Avery Bradley scored 28 points on 12-of-22 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, six assists, four steals and a block in 41 minutes on Friday against the Kings.

Bradley has picked up the pace since Rajon Rondo left and he should be owned in all standard formats, but he might lose a little volume on his scoring with Isaiah Thomas coming into the fold. Then again, the addition of a playmaker could free him for more 3-point looks. It's worth mentioning that tonight's output came against a Kings team that turned the ball over 24 times.
Feb 21 - 4:05 AM

Avery Bradley tweaked an ankle in Wednesday's win over the Hawks, finishing with 11 points, seven rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer on 4-of-13 shooting.

Bradley has been pretty solid all season and as long as he's starting for the Celtics, should be a fairly reliable fantasy shooting guard. He's dealing with several hand issues, and now the ankle, but should be able to heal over the All-Star break.
Feb 11 - 10:55 PM

The Celtics escaped New York with a close win on Tuesday, led by Avery Bradley's 26 points on 11-of-14 shooting, including a 3-of-5 mark from downtown.

Bradley added four assists and one steal with just one turnover in 33 minutes. He came in shooting 42.6 percent on the season and this outburst was even more unexpected since he's playing through a slight fracture in his left thumb. As coach Brad Stevens put it, "[The injury] obviously didn't affect him today. He was smoking from everywhere." He's a fixture in the starting lineup, no matter who else surrounds him, so give him a look if you're in need of scoring, 3-pointers and steals.
Feb 3 - 10:29 PM

Avery Bradley (thumb) will remain in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

Bradley was questionable heading into this one after revealing that he's dealing with a small fracture to his left thumb, similar to a sprain, but he will continue to fight through the pain. Bradley put up 17 points with a full line on Sunday, and he'll draw a favorable matchup tonight against the Knicks. Get him active.
Feb 3 - 6:11 PM

Avery Bradley (fractured left thumb) considers himself day-to-day and is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

Bradley said his availability depends on his pain threshold and added that he didn't feel any pain on Tuesday morning. If that trend continues, he'll be available for his fantasy owners Tuesday night, but Marcus Smart and Evan Turner will see all the minutes they can handle if Bradley is forced to miss any time.
Feb 3 - 11:17 AM

Avery Bradley may be playing through a small fracture in his left (non-shooting) thumb.

"It's been messed up, I think I fractured it today [when] I fell on it [going for a steal]," Bradley said. "But it's fine. It's not my shooting hand so I'll be OK. ... I'll just go out there and keep playing -- tape it up and keep playing." It's something for Bradley's owners to stay on top of going forward as the injury has the potential to be aggravated or worsen at any time. Marcus Smart and Evan Turner would be in line for a larger role if Bradley misses time.

Feb 2 - 9:13 AM

Avery Bradley finished Sunday's loss to the Heat with 17 points on 8-of-15 shooting, with four rebounds, two assists, two steals, one 3-pointer, and two turnovers.

Bradley briefly left Sunday's game due to his ongoing thumb injury, and he revealed after the game that he is dealing with a small fracture to his thumb that is similar to a sprain. The fact that he returned from the injury tonight and ended up logging close to 33 minutes is an encouraging sign, but we're going to have to consider him questionable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks. If he sits, Marcus Thornton, Marcus Smart, and Evan Turner would likely pick up most of his minutes.
Feb 1 - 4:13 PM

Avery Bradley (thumb, hand) did not practice on Thursday.

Bradley was able to fight through his ailments during Boston's last game, and he ended up logging 37 minutes. His absence from practice is likely to just get him some rest, and we'll be considering him on the probable side of questionable for Friday's game vs. Houston. Stay tuned.
Jan 29 - 3:44 PM

Avery Bradley (thumb) will play against the Jazz.

He has a bruised hand and a left thumb issue. Bradley was hurt on Sunday and was able to play through the injuries. He should see a smaller workload with Marcus Smart back, but he's still worth a look with the team needing some offense.
