Damn it all to hell. The reports just keep piling on, like a stampede of elephants stomping on my heart.
Per ESPN’S Chris Forsberg, Avery Bradley is expected to undergo surgery “as soon as the team determines he’s able.” He will face a four-month recovery period, which clearly knocks him out for the rest of the playoffs, which obviously sucks because now even if the Celtics get past the 76ers, RAY ALLEN AND HIS DAMAGED ANKLES WILL DEFEND DWYANE WADE IN THE EASTERN CONFERENCE FINALS.
Forgive me for shouting. That’s stage two of my grieving process, after denial. (ESPN)
Boston Celtics second-year shooting guard Avery Bradley is expected to soon undergo season-ending surgery to repair small tears that have compromised the structure of his ailing left shoulder, according to a league source.
Bradley has endured a number of dislocations during the 2011-12 season, including three in the postseason. After the shoulder came out in a Game 4 loss in Philadelphia, doctors made the determination that it’s simply too risky to put him back on the court with the potential for a more serious injury, according to the source. The team has not yet ruled him out for the rest of the postseason, but that decision could come soon.
With surgery unavoidable in order to correct the issues, Bradley is expected to go under the knife as soon as the team determines he’s able. According to the source, Bradley is looking at a four-month recovery process, but the hope is that he’ll be ready in time for the team’s October training camp.
Daniel-San, where is Mr. Miyagi? We need him to rub his hands on Allen’s ankles and Bradley’s shoulders, STAT.
Now forgive me while I go begin the third stage of my grieving process: tears.
