Celtics’ Bradley leaves game with dislocated shoulder; returns in fourth

UPDATE 9:05 pm: Bradley returned in the second half and was playing key minutes in the fourth quarter.

8:13 pm: Celtics starting two guard Avery Bradley has been battling left shoulder dislocation issues all season including in Game 3 against the Atlanta Hawks.

It happened again in Game 2 of the Celtics and Sixers series, and Bradley had to leave the game. It happened on a play where he drove the lane and tried to go up for a layup but ran into Elton Brand.

TNT’s David Aldridge said on the broadcast they were trying to let the pain subside a little then they would try to pop the shoulder back into place. That’s about as much fun as it sounds like. When this happened against the Hawks in the first round Bradley did not return for that game but was back and ready to go next game.

Less Bradley means more Ray Allen for Boston. which comes with its own challenges as he tries to play through ankle pain. Boston leads 38-36 at the half.

      You really do have issues. You should really see a therapist. Your anger towards the Celtics is unhealthy.

      I also don’t think that you know the definition of the word choke. Ever single loss for a team is not choking.

        this loss was a choke, Andy Griffith.

        I see what you did there. You took a random TV character that has my first name and used it to insult me. Clever!

        Didn’t catch the Lakers game last night? How did they do? I assume that they brought their A-game and didn’t lose by 29 points or something.

    Love how Saturday night there was a story within 5 minutes of the game ending about how great the Celtics were and now tonight it’s two hours after the game an still nothing. It’s okay NBC Sports, just keep on hating on Philly, again, we’re used to it.

      I’m a Celtics fan and I noticed the same thing man they were even quick to put “tell us you didn’t see this coming” in the title or the last game’s article haha. But anyway you guys earned it tonight when Turner blasted through us with under a minute left to scoop in that lay up I knew we were doomed. Awesome game though and this is shaping up to be an awesome series too.

      No sh#t! This websites the worst. It’s like they don’t even want Philly in it. We’ll show ’em.
