Avery Bradley practiced today, for the second straight day, and could play tomorrow night against the Washington Wizards. Though Ray Allen mentioned that Bradley might still be favoring his ankle, Doc Rivers said the rookie could play tomorrow night. (ESPN Boston)
“He’s close as far as his speed, but I don’t know if he’s close as far as his knowledge — as far as what we’re doing and what he should do in an NBA game. But listen, he may get activated because we need another body. I wouldn’t be afraid to put him in there in certain situations.”

In other news from practice, Rivers said there was plenty of slippage on the road trip. The team spent a good portion of practice working on defensive fundamentals. James, I know you’ll love to hear that.
