Danny Ainge heaped praise on Avery Bradley for his performance during the 2015-16 season.
"Avery had a really good, efficient year last year," Ainge said.." He’s improved every year on his offensive efficiency. It’s not just about making 3’s or any one thing specifically, it’s about becoming an efficient scorer." Bradley averaged a career-high 15.2 points per game last season (including 1.9 3PM nightly), but it's hard to see that scoring number moving up with Al Horford now in town. Sep 24 - 5:23 PM

Avery Bradley thinks the Celtics could have a "top one, two or three defensive unit" for the 2016-17 season.

This comes after Bradley expressed his desire to win Defensive Player of the Year. "I'm going to play rough," he said." "I'm going to pick up the entire game. I'm not going to back down. You can cross me, I can fall, I don't care. That's just me, that's who I am." Boston is going to be one of the more annoying teams for their opposition to play because of all of the pesky players they have on the roster, something the Celtics have undoubtedly done by design.

Avery Bradley wants to win the 2016-17 Defensive Player of the Year Award.

Bradley was named to the 2015-16 All-Defensive First Team, but is hoping to add another award to that distinction this year. "That’s my goal: to be Defensive Player of the Year," Bradley said. "I feel like it’s possible for me if I go out there with the right mindset." While Bradley will have an uphill climb to win the award, he's a solid mid-round target with upside heading into 2016-17 fantasy drafts.

Avery Bradley said he's added more play-making ability and more offensive moves to his game this summer.

He was viewed as a point guard coming out of high school, so he had the potential. Bradley is arguably the best perimeter defender in the NBA and will certainly get major minutes. After already posting career highs in points, 3-pointers, field goal percentage and steals last year, Bradley could have even more value if he can increase his dimes. He's a solid mid-round target with an intriguing ceiling.

Avery Bradley said that his hamstring injury was 100 percent a couple weeks after the season.

He injured his hamstring in Game 1 of the first round series vs. the Hawks, but this means he's been healthy for a few months now. Bradley also indicated that he wanted to try and return towards the end of the series, but the doctors wouldn't allow it. Bradley will reprise his role as the starting SG in Boston and is coming off averages of 15.2 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.9 treys on 44.8 percent shooting, meaning his price will be set in the middle rounds of standard leagues.

Avery Bradley has been mentioned in one trade scenario involving Jimmy Butler and the Bulls.

Jae Crowder has also been mentioned and talks continue to heat up as Boston's pick is just minutes away. Stay tuned.

Brad Stevens lobbied for Avery Bradley to be named to the All-Defensive First Team.

"In my eyes, the entire time I’ve been here, but really this year, [Bradley] stood out to me as first team all-defensive guy," Stevens said. "He's so good at putting pressure on the basketball. And he's gotten really good at defending both on the ball, which he’s always been great at, but then off the ball, navigating screens and making it difficult for guys to get the position they want. He had multiple games where we switched him onto big 3s, who tried to post him at the end of games, and he kept them from getting what they wanted. He’s really a good defender." The head coach also called Bradley a "big part" of what Boston is building, so don't expect his name to arise in any potential trade discussions that the Celtics will surely be engaged in this summer.

Celtics GM Danny Ainge said that Avery Bradley (hamstring) likely wouldn't have returned in the postseason.

"The hamstring injury Avery had, a Grade 1 strain, it’s risky," said Ainge. "You want to be really careful with that because, if you get a second hamstring injury, then they sort of have a tendency to linger throughout your career. So we probably wouldn’t have let Avery go back out unless he was just 100 percent and felt absolutely nothing. But I think that was always a long shot." Bradley will have plenty of time to recover this offseason and his stock should be pretty high in fantasy after averaging 15.2 points, 2.1 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.9 3-pointers this season.

Avery Bradley (hamstring) is experiencing soreness after jogging.

There is no update on his status with Bradley still very unlikely to play in the first round. The good news is he's trying to make some progress, but it's still going slowly. It'll be Evan Turner, Marcus Smart, Terry Rozier and R.J. Hunter stepping up -- likely in that order for DFS.
Apr 27 - 4:23 PM

Danny Ainge said that Avery Bradley (hamstring) is a "long shot" to make it back to the court at any point during Boston's first-round series.

Bradley's initial prognosis had him missing the entire first-round series, and it doesn't sound like he's made enough improvement for that to change. He'll more than likely remain sidelined for Thursday's Game 6, which will again result in increased minutes for Marcus Smart, Evan Turner and Terry Rozier.

Avery Bradley (hamstring) will miss Game 5 of the Celtics series with the Hawks on Tuesday.

This comes as no big surprise as Bradley is expected to miss the Celtics first-round series, but Bradley did not travel with the team to Atlanta and will officially miss Game 5. "He's just back getting multiple-times-per-day treatment and doing everything that he needs to do to continue to progress," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. Marcus Smart and Evan Turner will continue to benefit the most with Bradley out, with Smart being the high-risk, high-reward option of the two.
Apr 26 - 1:00 PM

Avery Bradley (hamstring) is still "very unlikely" to play in the rest of the first-round series vs. the Hawks.

No surprises here. Evan Turner has been awesome for the Celtics, so he will continue to benefit the most sans Bradley. Even if the Celtics advance past the first round, it sounds like Bradley's hamstring issue will continue to linger and we haven't heard many positive reports.

Avery Bradley (hamstring) is likely to miss the Celtics playoff series against the Hawks, according to team president Danny Ainge.

While Ainge said Bradley would like to rush back and help the team, he won't let the Celtics best defender jeopardize his career. "I will prevent and intervene there to keep Avery from jeopardizing himself and making sure he doesn't make a bad decision," Ainge said. "He's much better, but I think it's a long shot that Avery will be back in this series." Terry Rozier will continue to see the biggest boost in minutes while Bradley is out.

Coach Brad Stevens ruled out Avery Bradley for the weekend and said Bradley had an MRI on Wednesday.

The results are not yet known, but he is still very unlikely to play in the series at all. Bradley was hopeful he could play in this series, but it might not go beyond five games because the Celtics miss him badly. Terry Rozier will benefit most while R.J. Hunter will be in the rotation. The starters will have to make their extra shots, as well.
Apr 20 - 3:08 PM

Avery Bradley (hamstring) said that he's hopeful he can return at some point during Boston's first-round series against the Hawks.

The Celtics have fallen into a 0-2 hole in their first-round matchup, which likely has Bradley itching to get back on the court. However, after Bradley heard a "pop" when suffering his hamstring injury during Game 1, head coach Brad Stevens said that he’ll "most likely" miss the entire first, and given the fact Bradley is still unable to put on socks without assistance, we're not so optimistic that he’ll be able to make it back to the court during the first round. Evan Turner is the primary beneficiary sans Bradley.
