Bradley Returns to Practice
Avery Bradley returned to practice on December 18th, his first time playing since May. Bradley had shoulder surgery that ended his season during the playoff series against the 76ers. Bradley is expected to be able to return to action sometime in January, and is anticipated to start at guard alongside Rajon Rondo. If that is the case, both Courtney Lee and Jason Terry would consistently be coming off the bench. Some think if the Celtics had been with Avery for the Eastern Conference Finals that they could have found a way past the Miami Heat with his defensive contributions. It could be just what this struggling Celtics team needs to add someone that can run the floor with Rondo and locks down the opposing teams best perimeter player. Bradley has been working out and getting shots up, but said he felt great to be back practicing with the team. Hopefully his return can provide the spark this team needs.
