Avery Bradley played 39 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday, scoring 18 points with eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.
The Celtics obviously are not limiting his minutes anymore and the team is leaning on him more offensively. After the game, someone told Bradley he played 39 minutes and Bradley responded that he wasn't even tired. Bradley played 34 minutes in each of his previous three games, so he'll be in the upper 30s going forward. Mar 22 - 11:15 PM

Avery Bradley, one of the NBA's most underrated players, is also one of the leading candidates for this season's Most Improved Player award.

Bradley is averaging career-highs in multiple categories this season, including scoring (16.9 points per game), rebounds (6.2), assists (2.3) and 3-pointers (2.1). Avery's monstrous jump up in rebound rate is the most startling. He averaged 2.9 boards in 33.4 minutes per game last season. In 2016-17, he is averaging 6.2 rebounds in 33.2 minutes per game.

Avery Bradley scored 20 points on 8-of-16 shooting in Monday's win over the Wizards.

He was everywhere tonight, racking up nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and four triples in 34 minutes. Bradley had his minute restrictions lifted on Mar. 12 and he's played 32+ minutes in four straight games since then. He's finally healthy and is peaking at the perfect time for his fantasy owners. The Celtics have three more games this week, so his owners should be in good shape.
Mar 20 - 10:46 PM

Avery Bradley scored 13 points with three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 34 minutes against the 76ers on Sunday.

He's missed his last eight attempts from deep and maybe some of that is because of no Isaiah Thomas, but he was actually hot before this slump and had 2.0 treys in his previous games since returning from injury. Bradley does have better efficiency when he's next to Thomas with his 56.4 true shooting percentage next to IT compared to 54.3 without him. Bradley's minutes are back up again, so his fantasy owners should consider him a total must-start player.
Mar 19 - 4:04 PM

Avery Bradley scored 16 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and three turnovers in 34 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

That's the most minutes he's played since returning from his Achilles injury. Bradley has also scored 16-plus points in each of his last four games with 11 treys in that span, so his offense is back. He'll have another big opportunity on Sunday against the 76ers with Isaiah Thomas (knee) out again. Bradley is an absolute must-start player again.
Mar 18 - 12:12 AM

Avery Bradley looked great in 32 minutes on Wednesday, hitting 7-of-12 shots with four 3-pointers to score 18 points in a win vs. the Timberwolves.

Bradley's minute-limit has been lifted for a while now, but he averaged a modest 27.5 minutes in his previous two games due to lopsided scores. He added four assists and three rebounds without any turnovers tonight, and with his minutes north of 30 he's poised for a strong finish for fantasy owners.
Mar 15 - 11:37 PM

Avery Bradley scored 17 points on 7-of-16 shooting Sunday, to go with three 3-pointers, six boards, one assist, three steals, one block and one turnover in just 26 minutes.

Bradley's minutes limit has officially been lifted, so the low-minute total can be explained by the blowout nature of the game, and not any sort of mandated restrictions. Head coach Brad Stevens said that with how much time Bradley has already taken off this season due to injury, he doesn’t anticipate him seeing many random rest days down the stretch, and back-to-back sets likely won't be an issue. Pending health, Bradley is poised for a strong finish to the 2016-17 season.
Mar 12 - 6:33 PM

Avery Bradley's minutes restriction has been lifted according to coach Brad Stevens.

Bradley played 29 and 30 minutes in his previous two games, so his owners probably saw this coming. Coach Brad Stevens also said that he won't need to rest his guys as much down the stretch because they're "fresher" due to all the missed games with injuries. Bradley could flirt with early-round value the rest of the way.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: This is great news; Bradley is priced as though he were still limited, so he’s available at a discount. Our very own Notorious has dubbed him an elite play on DraftKings and FanDuel as he averaged 33.9 DK points prior to his injury. A decent chunk of that came from 7.0 rebounds per game, however, and the Bulls have the third-best rebounding differential in the league. On the positive side, their defense is pretty average overall – they’re 13th in FPPG to teams, and 14th against shooting guards. Bradley projects as our second-best points-per-dollar option.
Mar 12 - 2:00 PM

Avery Bradley scored 16 points on 6-of-14 shooting on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

After playing 30 minutes in his previous outing, Bradley was on the same minute restrictions tonight but only played 29 in the blowout. He had a great line with two rebounds, two assists, three steals and four triples, and it's likely a matter of time before the restrictions are completely lifted. He's nearing 100 percent just in time for the fantasy playoffs.
Mar 11 - 1:33 AM

Avery Bradley logged 30 minutes during Wednesday's 99-86 victory in Oracle Arena, scoring 12 points on 6-of-15 shooting with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

It's the most minutes Bradley has played since mid-January, as the Celtics have kept him on a strict limit since his return from an Achilles injury on Feb. 27. Boston's next back-to-back set isn't until Mar. 19/20, and they only have two left all season, which is terrific news for anyone relying on Bradley in the final weeks of the season.
Mar 9 - 1:54 AM

Coach Brad Stevens said he's not sure if he will increase Avery Bradley's minutes for Wednesday against the Warriors.

After missing Sunday, Bradley was up to 26 minutes on Monday against the Clippers. Considering how carefully the Celtics were with Bradley based on how he played one game in almost a two-month span. Bradley is likely looking at minutes around 30 and he will likely be asked to cover Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry a lot in this game. His patient owners should see some dividends very soon.
Mar 8 - 3:22 PM

Avery Bradley (hamstring) will play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

This confirms that Bradley was simply rested on Sunday night vs. the Suns. His minutes were trending up prior to Sunday, so maybe he will come close to the 28-30 minute range tonight. Unless the Celtics roll with a small-ball lineup, Jaylen Brown will likely head to the bench.
Mar 6 - 9:06 PM

Avery Bradley (hamstring) and Al Horford (elbow) will not play Sunday vs. the Suns.

Bradley said that he's dealing with soreness in both of his hamstrings, but the plan all along was for him to sit out one game of this back-to-back set, and he fully expects to play Monday against the Clippers. With both Bradley and Horford unavailable today, Jaylen Brow and Jonas Jerebko will return to the starting five, and Isaiah Thomas is going to be extremely busy on offense. IT4 looks like a solid DFS option with a favorable and uptempo matchup against Phoenix.

Avery Bradley played 24 minutes vs. the Lakers on Friday, scoring 15 points in a 115-95 win.

His minutes continue to rise as he played 22 and 15 minutes in his previous two games. Bradley shot 6-of-11 from the field and 1-of-4 from the line with four rebounds, four assists and two triples, but it won't be long now before Bradley starts posting the monster lines that his owners were getting used to before his Achilles injury. He should be a full go by the time fantasy playoffs start up.
Mar 4 - 1:35 AM

Avery Bradley will still have a minutes limit for Friday against the Lakers.

However, he should play more than his 22 minutes from Wednesday. The Celtics have called it a 15-25 minute limit in the last two games, so maybe that means 20-30 minutes tonight. Coach Brad Stevens has also said he won't adjust his rotation for crunch time, so that's a positive for Bradley in Los Angeles tonight. His fantasy owners should start seeing dividends soon.
