The second part of the headline isn't really true, but it should be. It's probably the only way to keep Avery Bradley's shoulder in place for a few more games.
Actually the Celtics training staff has a new plan for Avery should the Celtics advance… they're going full "Jax" from Mortal Kombat
I joke because it's all I can do to keep from ramming my head through the wall. Pierce (knee), Ray (ankle), Pietrus (knee), Bradley (shoulder), and everyone else (something, I'm sure) are considered "in" tonight against the Sixers.
One thing about Bradley that no one is really talking about is the possibility of offseason surgery for him. Shoulders that pop out multiple times are often fixed surgically. I'm not sure what Avery's specific situation will be, but I wouldn't be shocked. And if he does need surgery, he'd likely be the third Celtic currently playing with an injury that will need surgical correction (Pietrus and Ray are the others).
That speaks to (a) the extent of the injuries and (b) how tough these bastards really are.
