“I’m just trying to get (the shoulders) stronger. But as of now, I’m not going to be playing tonight,” said Bradley. ” It’s definitely frustrating, but all I can do is keep trying to get stronger, keep trying to improve for my team. That’s what I’m going to do.”
Said Rivers: “(Bradley is a) little better, not much. I don’t think he’ll play tonight, but we’ll find out. He won’t do anything in shootaround for sure, then we’ll do what we did the other night and let him warm up and see if he can warm up. Then we’ll go from there.”
I hate to look forward here, since the Sixers are (I think) still capable of winning the next two games. But I’m going to anyway.
If the Celtics reach the Eastern Conference Finals, Bradley’s health is going to be a HUGE factor. I mean, who would you rather have defending Dwyane Wade: the league’s best perimeter defender or a 36-year old, hobbled-by-injury Ray Allen?
