Avery Bradley has surgery - May 26, 2012

Avery
Bradley
Whatever thin hopes the Celtics had that Avery Bradley (6'2''-G-90, college: Texas) would be able to return this postseason were dashed yesterday when the starting shooting guard underwent surgery on his left shoulder.

Bradley dislocated the shoulder a number of times during the postseason and missed Games 5 and 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Philadelphia 76ers. Celtics coach Doc Rivers announced that Bradley would have season-ending surgery performed by team physician Brian McKeon.

Its disappointing, Rivers said. Obviously when a player goes down thats disappointing and especially on what Avery has given us this year. His growth this year has been terrific. Hes become a very valuable piece to our basketball team. His ability to guard the best guard at 1 or 2 has really taken so much pressure off of (Rajon) Rondo, in particular.

The Celtics perimeter defense was torched by Phillys guards in Game 6 and can expect to face a similar attack in tonights Game 7 at the Garden. Ray Allen, who is hobbled by an ankle injury, has taken Bradleys place in the starting lineup, while Rondo will have to carry more of the load defensively.

Not having him means that Rondo now has to go back to that role and run the team, and thats hard to do, especially against the team were playing who has two guards that attack, Rivers said. So Rondo doesnt have a lot of breaks in this, but thats the way it is. Weve been a team all year that stuff happens, you deal with it and you just move forward. Thats what weve been and thats what were going to have to be (tonight).

It is expected that it will take Bradley most of the offseason to recover, forcing him to miss his third straight summer league. Bradley spent the summer of 2010 rehabilitating an ankle injury after being selected by the Cs with the 19th pick in the draft. There were no summer leagues last year due to the lockout.

Despite the lack of offseason work, Bradley improved remarkably in his second season. After scoring a total of 52 points as a rookie, the 21-year-old averaged 12.3 points in 28 starts this season. He also developed into one of the leagues best on-ball defenders.

No one wants to play against Avery. Our guys dont want to play against him in practice, Rivers said. Hes a pain in the (butt) defensively.
