Avery Bradley was a factor on both ends of the floor during a 104-87 win over the Bulls on Friday, scoring 15 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.
It's been a while since we saw peak Avery Bradley, but he showed up today. Bradley's defense on Jimmy Butler may have been his biggest contribution in this game, and his play-making skills were also on display. Before his Achilles injury, Bradley showed off his polished ball-handling skills, but they've subsided in the past few months. If he starts playing like he did in the 2016 portion of the season, the Celtics could be dangerous again. The Celtics will look to tie the series in Game 4 on Sunday. Apr 21 - 10:17 PM

Avery Bradley said the Celtics need to be better at pushing through adversity following their Game 2 loss to the Bulls.

"I looked around and a few times in the game guys were putting their heads down, I think getting down on themselves," Bradley said. "I could even hear [Rajon] Rondo, like, 'Yeah, they gave up. They gave up.' But you never can let a team see that." Bradley is right that the Celtics can't let their emotions show during a loss, but he also needs to be better for Boston to have a chance. Through the first two games he's been connecting on just 35.7 percent of his shot attempts, while also committing 3.0 turnovers a game, and if that trend holds, the losses will continue.

Avery Bradley was hot early on Sunday, but he quickly cooled off to finish with 14 points on 5-of-13 shooting, three boards, three steals, two assists and four turnovers.

Bradley did his damage in 35 minutes, and in fairness most of his energy was directed to the defensive end of the court. His ability to spread the court makes everything easier for teammates, and he and Jae Crowder (4-of-12 FGs) need to be more efficient for Boston to avoid falling into an 0-2 hole vs. the No. 8 seed Bulls.

Avery Bradley insisted that his right hand is fine.

"I jammed it," Bradley said after Wednesday's game. "I'm fine. I put some ice on it and I'm good." Bradley was able to re-enter the game after tweaking his hand and scored four points in a crucial stretch of the fourth quarter, and with a few days of rest coming his way, he should be a full go on Sunday vs. the Bulls in the first round of the playoffs.

Avery Bradley "jammed" his right hand in Wednesday's win over the Bucks, finishing with eight points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 31 minutes.

The guy just can't catch a break, but luckily for Boston, his hand reportedly isn't a concern -- coach Brad Stevens said after the game that Bradley was fine and the SG was able to check back into the game. He finished 4-of-9 from the field and will have a few days to rest up for Sunday's playoff game vs. the Bulls.
Apr 12 - 10:58 PM

Avery Bradley made 6-of-19 from the field for 17 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday.

The Celtics have surprisingly lost three straight games Bradley has been in the lineup and have won the last three without him. Obviously Bradley had a breakout season and he will be essential to Boston's success in the postseason. That said, the Celtics would be more likely to rest Bradley than perhaps anyone else, so his fantasy owners will have to keep an eye out. They have a 1.5 game cushion in both directions with three to play.
Apr 6 - 11:22 PM

Avery Bradley (illness) returned after a two-game absence on Wednesday, making 1-of-8 from the field for four points with seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes.

He looked healthy throughout the game and made some tough defensive plays, but Bradley couldn't get his shot to fall. Coach Brad Stevens kept Bradley out there for most of garbage time, so that suggests he's close to 100 percent. Expect him to get big minutes until the Celtics have their seed locked up.
Apr 5 - 10:43 PM

Avery Bradley (illness) is good to go for Wednesday against the Cavs.

After missing the last two games due to a reoccurring stomach issue, Bradley is back after a couple days off. He's been on track to play all day and should see minutes in the 27-34 range. Bradley's return will take minutes from Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier. Go ahead and get Bradley back in your lineup.
Apr 5 - 6:21 PM

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said he's expecting Avery Bradley (illness) to play Wednesday vs. the Cavs.

Bradley got in a full practice on Tuesday after sitting out the previous two games, and Stevens said he looked "fresher than last week." All signs are pointing towards him getting back out there on Wednesday night, which will result in fewer minutes for Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart, and Isaiah Thomas' usage rate will take a minor hit.

Avery Bradley (illness) is "feeling better" and is expected to practice on Tuesday.

He will miss his second straight game on Sunday vs. the Knicks and didn't even travel with the team as he recovers from the flu. If Bradley looks good on Tuesday, he will likely do everything in his power to play on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers -- the Celtics currently hold a 0.5 game lead over the Cavaliers for the No. 1 seed in the East. Jaylen Brown will start vs. the Knicks on Sunday and Marcus Smart will get a bump as well.
Apr 2 - 11:38 AM

Avery Bradley (illness) will not travel with the team to New York and has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Knicks.

Bradley has been unable to shake this stomach virus, which cost him a game last week and kept him out of Friday's contest as well. After Sunday, the Celtics don't play again until Wednesday, so Bradley will have three more full days to recuperate. Jaylen Brown started in place of Bradley Friday night and finished with 12 points and three boards in 23 minutes. Marcus Smart will see an uptick in minutes off the bench.
Apr 1 - 1:17 PM

Avery Bradley (illness) will be re-evaluated Saturday to determine if he will travel to New York for Sunday’s game against the Knicks.

Bradley can be considered doubtful at this point. "He’s had a tough week," coach Brad Stevens said on Friday. "He’s not in the hospital. But he’s not doing so hot." Jaylen Brown started in place of Bradley on Friday and finished with 12 points and three rebounds in 23 minutes. Marcus Smart had seven points and six assists in 30 minutes off the bench.
Apr 1 - 11:44 AM

Avery Bradley (illness) will not play against the Magic on Friday and Jaylen Brown will start in his place.

He is also doubtful to play on Sunday at New York. After just getting over a stomach bug last week, Bradley is sick again with only two games since the last incident. It's being called a reoccurrence, so hopefully he won't have to go to the hospital again. With Bradley out, it should be Marcus Smart benefiting the most, assuming he can make a couple shots today. Brown is worth a look as a stream, but would likely need garbage time to have an impact on the stat sheet. Bradley's owners may have to consider dropping him, depending on the situation at hand.
Mar 31 - 5:52 PM

Avery Bradley (illness) was able to score eight points with two assists and a rebound in 31 minutes Sunday against the Heat.

Bradley was a question mark due to illness, and he struggled with his shot a bit. The guard misfired on seven of his 11 field goal attempts, including all four from behind the arc. Despite the fact he didn't quite look 100 percent it appears safe to get him into the active fantasy lineup for the upcoming week.
Mar 26 - 10:18 PM

Avery Bradley (illness) said that he will play Sunday vs. the Heat.

Bradley went through shootaround, and there's been no discussion of a minutes limit, so owners can feel free to get him active. With Bradley back in action, Jaylen Brown will more than likely shift back to the second unit, and Marcus Smart will likely see his minutes reduced to the 20s.
