Date:

Avery Bradley sank 9-of-19 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs to score 24 points on Sunday, making two 3-pointers with six rebounds, two steals and one assist.

Bradley did his damage in 30 minutes and he's now scored at least 20 points in six of Detroit's past nine games. It's been a smooth transition for Bradley in Detroit, and he's giving fantasy owners just what they expected in scoring (16.4 points per game), 3-pointers (1.8) and steals (1.5). Detroit will go for their sixth straight win vs. the Bucks on Wednesday.
Nov 12 - 7:10 PM

Avery Bradley scored a season-high 24 points during a 108-99 win over the Kings on Saturday, adding two rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

The AB that fantasy owners were expecting was a little tardy to the party, but we'll just say he's fashionably late. In his last four, he's averaged 19.5 points, 2.5 boards, 1.8 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.5 blocks and 2.8 treys on 46.9 percent from the field. He's been flirting with top-50 value since the switch turned on, so hopefully he can keep it going. Bradley certainly has early-round upside.
Nov 4 - 10:18 PM

Avery Bradley scored 23 points with two rebounds, two assists, one block, three steals and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Bucks on Friday.

Slowly but surely, Bradley is starting to come around. He's taking a lot of 3-pointers with 5.2 per game over his last five, averaging 17.2 points, 3.4 boards, 1.8 assists, 2.4 steals and 2.2 treys in that span. Bradley still isn't very efficient and he could do better in the assist area, so there is still a chance to buy low before he really heats up.
Nov 3 - 11:31 PM

Avery Bradley hit just 4-of-17 shots and was 0-for-5 from downtown on his way to a quiet eight points, five rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Lakers.

Bradley finally had a game that made his owners happy on Sunday when he had 23 points and a fun stat line, but tonight was back to basics. He's been highly disappointing this season as he adjust to a new coach, new teammates and new role, but it was hard to see things going this poorly. The good news is that he's healthy, he's a good player, and he can't struggle this much all year. The 34 minutes and 17 shots were also encouraging, so this looks like a good time to make some low-ball offers for Bradley.
Nov 1 - 1:11 AM

Avery Bradley scored a season-high 23 points on Sunday, going 8-of-13 from the field with five 3-pointers, three steals, two assists and one rebound in 36 minutes.

Bradley's offensive efficiency was an unexpected bonus, considering how much energy he spent dogging Steph Curry defensively tonight. He's starting to find his groove with the Pistons, with enough points, 3-pointers and steals to offset mediocre rebounds and assists. He should settle into mid-round value as the season progresses.
Oct 29 - 11:43 PM

Avery Bradley hit just 4-of-15 shots for 12 points, five rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes of Saturday's win over the Clippers.

The good news is that he also had four steals. Bradley's off to a slow start for his new team and probably won't rebound anywhere near the rate he did last season, when he averaged 6.1 per game. This looks like a good time to buy low and if a frustrated owner drops him, scoop him up off waivers. He can only go up from here.
Oct 29 - 1:12 AM

Avery Bradley warmed up on Wednesday with 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

AB came in averaging a disappointing 13.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.8 steals in 29.1 minutes per game for Detroit. He did his damage without a single turnover in 30 minutes tonight, to the relief of nervous owners, but it was only a matter of time before he found a comfort-zone on his second NBA team.
Oct 25 - 11:02 PM

Avery Bradley hit 7-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points on Monday, but had just one rebound, three assists and zero steals in 38 minutes.

Bradley averaged 6.1 rebounds for the Celtics last season but has amassed just 10 of them in four games this season. He also has just three steals and no blocks while he tries to figure out how to play for his new team. Owners should practice patience with Bradley, as the peripheral stats should eventually start happening for him. But so far it's been a rough ride for the owners of AB.
Oct 23 - 9:54 PM

Avery Bradley scored 18 points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Wizards during a 115-111 loss on Friday.

He only played 23 minutes on Wednesday because of foul trouble, but the playing time went back up to where it should be all year. Bradley's assists haven't been there yet, but he's been efficient from the field and has a decent 23.5 usage rate. He's still on track for a very good season as a must-start player.
Oct 20 - 11:58 PM

Avery Bradley had 15 points, two rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes during his Pistons debut on Wednesday.

Bradley picked up three quick fouls in the first half, so we're not reading anything into the low playing time tonight. Detroit doesn't have a ball-dominant scorer so there should be plenty of shots coming to Bradley this season -- he didn't even attempt a 3-pointer tonight, but that will change on Friday.
Oct 18 - 10:40 PM

Avery Bradley went off during Friday's preseason finale, scoring a game-high 26 points on 11-of-17 shooting in 30 minutes.

Bradley added two 3-pointers, three assists and three steals, and this is quite a way to sign-off on the preseason. He hasn't received much hype in fantasy circles, but he probably should get more -- Detroit lacks a ball-dominant scorer, and coach Stan Van Gundy isn't shy about playing his key guys huge minutes, especially if (like Bradley) they can make 3-pointers and play solid defense.
Oct 13 - 11:51 PM

Avery Bradley (ankle) practiced on Wednesday and head coach Stan Van Gundy is hopeful to have him available for Friday's preseason finale against the Bucks.

Whether or not Bradley plays in Friday's meaningless games, there's little doubt regarding his availability for the regular-season opener, so this minor injury shouldn't affect his draft stock. Bradley is going to be a focal point in Detroit's attack and is one of the more attractive value picks towards the middle rounds as a guy who has the potential to flirt with top-20 value.
Oct 12 - 12:32 PM

Avery Bradley (ankle) will not suit up for Tuesday's preseason game against the Raptors.

The Pistons will continue to play it safe with Bradley given these games are irrelevant, but Stan Van Gundy acknowledged that he'd be out there if this were the regular season. Bradley could be in for a career-season as one of the primary creators in Detroit's offense, so he'll be one of the better value picks towards the middle rounds on draft day.
Oct 10 - 5:42 PM

Stan Van Gundy said that Avery Bradley (ankle) probably won't play in Tuesday's preseason game against the Raptors.

Bradley tweaked his ankle at practice on Sunday and he won't see the floor again during the preseason until he's clearly 100 percent. Detroit is describing this ankle issue as "minor," so he should be good for opening night, but there's no reason for him to risk a setback with the regular season right around the corner.
