Since returning from an injury three games ago, Avery Bradley has gone 13-of-16 from beyond the arc.
Bradley has really been draining his 3-point attempts lately, and with a favorable matchup vs. the 76ers on Monday, that hot streak could continue. Despite a laundry list of injuries, Bradley has turned in a nice season, improving his averages across the board in points (14.7) rebounds (3.8) 3-points made (1.3) and shot attempts (13.5). If he can manage to stay healthy next season, he could be a nice asset to have on your fantasy roster. Apr 13 - 9:12 AM

Avery Bradley hit 9-of-15 shots and five 3-pointers for 25 points, eight rebounds, two assists and a steal on Saturday.

This one was easy to see coming, as Rajon Rondo and Jerryd Bayless were both out for the Celtics. Bradley wasn't a good shooter when he entered the league, but has turned it around to become a pretty consistent NBA scorer. Use him freely over the last couple games.
Apr 12 - 10:37 PM

Avery Bradley scored a team-high 22 points during Friday's 106-103 win over the Bobcats, adding two boards, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Apparently, he must have spent a lot of time shooting 3-pointers while out with his Achilles injury. In his two games back in the lineup, Bradley is 8-of-10 from deep on his way to averages of 23.0 points, 3.0 boards and 2.5 steals. Hopefully the back-to-back factor doesn't keep him out of the lineup on Saturday because he's played very well over the past couple months. Plus, the Celtics could be without Rajon Rondo (shin) and Jerryd Bayless (knee).

Celtics GM Danny Ainge said that Avery Bradley's injury history is "a concern," but the team is still "big fans of Avery's."

"He’s very young, and they're not any injuries that have set him way back," Ainge said. "The shoulder injuries two years ago took away a summer of his development." Avery has missed 22 gamest this season due to right ankle and Achilles problems, and it will be interesting to see how he's valued in restricted free agency this summer.
Apr 10 - 5:16 PM

Avery Bradley played well in his return to the lineup on Wednesday vs. the Hawks, making 8-of-12 from the field for 24 points with four boards, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers.

He made all four free throws, all four attempts from deep and only turned the ball over once. Bradley played 35 minutes tonight, which is a lot higher than many expected after missing three games due to an Achilles issue. He's having a career year and is worth a look in all standard leagues.
Apr 9 - 10:19 PM

Avery Bradley (Achilles) will start vs. the Hawks on Wednesday night.

It's his first game in the lineup this month and it moves Jerryd Bayless back to the bench. If he's able to stay healthy tonight, Bradley could be worth a look in standard leagues. He's really improved as a scorer and Rajon Rondo figures to get another game of rest on Saturday.
Apr 9 - 7:48 PM

Avery Bradley looked good in practice on Monday and coach Brad Stevens is expecting him to play on Wednesday against the Hawks.

He pulled off a 360 dunk today, so he should be good to go. Jerryd Bayless will take a hit with Bradley's return.
Apr 8 - 11:53 AM

Avery Bradley (Achilles) returned to practice on Monday, leaving him questionable to return vs. the Hawks on Wednesday.

Bradley has missed the past three games due to tendinitis in his Achilles. As long as the injury eases up he should be in uniform, since coach Brad Stevens has no intention of resting healthy players down the stretch.
Apr 7 - 11:45 AM

Avery Bradley (Achilles) will not play against the Sixers on Friday and the Pistons on Saturday.

Coach Brad Stevens is hopeful for Bradley to play in Boston's next game on Wednesday. He has a strained right Achilles and will miss at least three games because of it. Jerryd Bayless was horrible in his start on Wednesday, but he'll have a much better chance against the Sixers tonight. Of course, there are 14 games tonight and the majority of fantasy owners should have better options out there.
Apr 4 - 5:51 PM

Avery Bradley (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Sixers.

Bradley was a late scratch on Wednesday and was scheduled to be reevaluated Thursday. There's no word yet on what doctors found. We'd expect Bradley to sit and Jerryd Bayless to draw the start Friday night.

Apr 4 - 11:44 AM

Avery Bradley (Achilles) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Wizards.

He tried to warmup up and it must not have went well. Bradley has dealt with some problems with the lower part of his right leg with an ankle injury costing him significant time earlier in the year. He could be back for the weekend, but fantasy owners probably shouldn't stash guys with a fairly low upside this late in the season. Jerryd Bayless is expected to start.
Apr 2 - 6:20 PM

Avery Bradley is warming up for Wednesday's game vs. the Wizards and will try to play.

Of course, warmups might not go well and he's technically a game-time decision. Bradley had soreness in his Achilles on Monday and could not return. If he sits, Jerryd Bayless would get the start.
Apr 2 - 6:13 PM

Avery Bradley (Achilles) hopes to play on Wednesday but his status won't be determined until closer to tip-off.

Bradley left Monday's game due to Achilles tendinitis, something he's been playing through for a while, and his status depends upon his level of comfort. Jerryd Bayless will step into a bigger role if Bradley can't play vs. the slumping Wizards.
Apr 2 - 11:09 AM

Avery Bradley (Achilles tendinitis) is uncertain whether he'll be ready to play vs. the Wizards on Wednesday.

"It just comes from not playing for a long period and then coming back full speed," said Bradley, who recently missed 13 games with a sprained ankle. "It’s been bothering me, but I've just been playing through it, just getting treatment, but [on Monday] it got the best of me." If he's unable to play the Celtics will have to lean more heavily on Jerryd Bayless with help from Phil Pressey.
Apr 1 - 2:40 PM

Avery Bradley did not return to Monday's game vs. the Bulls due to a sore right Achilles.

Coach Brad Stevens said Bradley's Achilles couldn't loosen up and that's why he couldn't get back on the court. Bradley's right ankle has kept him out of the lineup for much of the post-break action, so he could be looking at another stint on the inactive list. Jerryd Bayless is worth a look in standard leagues.
