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.

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.
Apr 24 - 4:29 PM

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.
Apr 20 - 10:34 AM

Avery Bradley (hamstring) will not play in Game 2 vs. the Hawks on Tuesday.

He's expected to miss the entire series and was listed as doubtful, so this isn't surprising. Bradley will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, so the Celtics will likely update his timetable after that. As previously stated, Evan Turner, Marcus Smart and Jae Crowder will all have to step up in his absence.
Apr 18 - 1:29 PM

Avery Bradley (hamstring) did not attend practice on Monday.

He's considered very doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks and he's expected to miss the rest of the series as well. Coach Brad Stevens wouldn't reveal how he will replace Bradley's minutes, but Marcus Smart and Evan Turner figure to benefit the most in his absence. The Celtics may have another update after practice.
Apr 18 - 1:15 PM

Avery Bradley (hamstring) is doubtful to play in the rest of the series against the Hawks according to coach Brad Stevens.

He is dealing with a "pretty significant" strain and is "very unlikely" to play in Game 2, let alone the rest of the series. Stevens hasn't decided what to do with his lineups moving forward, but it's safe to say that Evan Turner and Marcus Smart will have increased roles. This is devastating news for Boston.
Apr 17 - 1:04 PM

Avery Bradley (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on Sunday.

The Celtics are calling his injury a right hamstring strain, and Bradley admitted after Saturday's loss that he heard a "pop" in his hamstring. The Boston Globe is reporting that Bradley is likely dealing with a significant injury, but we should have an updated timetable after his MRI. If Bradley has to miss time, Marcus Smart and Evan Turner will have to step up.
Apr 17 - 9:17 AM

Avery Bradley (hamstring) "heard a pop" in his hamstring in the fourth quarter on Saturday.

Not good. Bradley was also given a crutch after the game, so his outlook is bleak right now. This is a gigantic loss for the Celtics because he's huge for their spacing on offense and he's one of the best perimeter defenders in the league. Marcus Smart and Evan Turner will step up on the outside while Jonas Jerebko might have to be called upon for 3-pointers in the second unit.
