During training camp practices, (Avery) Bradley often works his way into a huddle. Sometimes a coach will be ready to put the guard on the floor before remembering that Bradley is unable to participate as he recovers from offseason surgery on both shoulders.
Sitting on the sidelines isn’t easy for Bradley, but he knows it’s necessary.
“We don’t want any setbacks,” Bradley said. “I try to stay away from contact. I don’t do anything I’m not supposed to be doing like dunking the ball, even though I want to sometimes because I feel so good.”
Bradley was feeling even better yesterday because he was able to begin conditioning. He lifted weights, took jumpers and ran, all with the intention of hitting the ground running when he returns to the lineup.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers has pegged mid-December as the target for Bradley’s return, but the 21-year-old is eager to accelerate that timeline.
“That’s what they have right now. I’ve just got to take it day-by-day and see how I feel,” Bradley said. “I’m ahead of schedule now, so you never know.”
