Avery Bradley looks to return before Christmas Day

Avery Bradley is with the Celtics, cleared to do workouts. He is doing his conditioning.

Which is a long way from contact or playing in games, but after two shoulder surgeries — one on each — that is to be expected. Still Doc Rivers is talking about having the Celtics starting two guard (unless Courtney Lee steals his job) back on the court by the middle of December.

Bradley sounded optimistic talking to A. Sherrod Blakely of

“I didn’t think I would be feeling this good right now,” Bradley said. “Right now, I feel good. I started conditioning today, started lifting with the strength coach today. I feel like I’m moving forward the way I’m supposed to.”

Having him back, with Lee and Jason Terry coming off the bench, would give the Celtics a lot of depth on the wings. It would give them guys who can score and guys who can defend, allowing them to matchup with teams who are strong there. Like, hypothetically, that team in Miami.

On another Celtics note, Chris Wilcox remains out but it’s due to back spasms. Which means there is no timeline for his return. They could use him because keeping Kevin Garnett’s minutes in check is a regular season priority.

    Can we get a Courtney Lee article next? How about a Scalabrine for old times sake?

      I never read the articles. Just the headlines. I’m not the only one either

        If you “NEVER” read the articles then why would you request one? What kind of sense does that make?

    You won’t be laughing when Bradley helps the Celtics win it all this year. Mark my words.
