Ainge Confirms Bradley Needs Surgery
Boston Celtics second-year shooting guard Avery Bradley needs surgery on his ailing left shoulder and likely will miss the remainder of the postseason, team president of basketball operations Danny Ainge acknowledged Thursday.
“We’ll probably find out more here in the next few hours, but it’s looking that way,” Ainge said during his weekly interview on Boston sports radio station WEEI. “I think these reports are accurate — at least the reports I’ve read. Someone said it was a 90 percent chance that he’s done for the season, and it’s looking that way.”
The surgery is needed to repair small tears that have compromised the structure of his left shoulder, according to a league source.
