Your Morning Dump… Where Avery Bradley doesn’t know anything about his rehab time frame

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.


“I don’t know anything,” Bradley told in a phone interview. “They just want me to get healthy. That’s all they really tell me. They don’t really give me time frames.”

While the exact time of his return is uncertain, the Celtics have certainly approached the offseason as though they will be without their best perimeter defender.

“We know there’s a possibility that Avery won’t be able to play the first month of the season,” Danny Ainge, Boston’s president of basketball operations, told “So we have to be prepared for that. You never know how these things play out; will it be a month? Or two months? I don’t think it’ll be much longer than that, or he could be back sooner. You try to build a roster where you can get by with any injury, that can sustain you through a short period of time.”

Even if Bradley was healthy to start the season, he would still face stiff competition for the starting job at shooting guard. The Celtics acquired Courtney Lee this offseason, who, like Bradley, is also considered a better-than-average defender.

CSNNE – Bradley unsure if he’ll be ready for camp

No time frame? C’mon Avery, there’s a time frame with every injury. You just don’t want to share.

The Celtics have enough depth so they won’t “miss” Bradley too much during the start of the season. But I view him as an integral part of this team’s rotation.

In other news, Jeff Green’s deal with the Celtics has yet to be finalized.  The hang-up doesn’t appear to be money or years. Could there be an issue with insurance or language regarding Jeff’s heart condition?

    AB is one unlucky guy. His injury took him out of the ECF in his break out year where his defense would have been welcomed and now will have to jump into year 3 half way through and probably won’t recover fully until late in the regular season. Add to that, together with the lockout, he won’t have had a full training camp since his rookie season. Best of luck to him making a speedy recovery.

    Lol at Celticsg (or Tammy). That’s what the Dump is… excerpts and links of Celtics news.

    You’re clearly a new troll – we’ve been with YB for the duration.

    7 years and running. We’re not going anywhere. Just up.

  • zippittyay

    funny, there doesn’t seem to be any LESS ads on that other site.

  • Lawrense

    There’s plenty of room for both RedsArmy and CB on the internet, guys.

  • KY Celts fan

    Dude, why are you trolling a Celtics site when you claim to be a Celtics fan? You’re just being a dick.

    And as a frequent visitor of both sites, I can honestly say that Jeff Clark and Co. over at Celticsblog have much respect for John and Chuck. So step off, asshole.

  • CelticsBlog is a big fan of Red’s Army and we don’t approve of any trolls on other sites. That should be clear, but just wanted to be sure everyone is aware.

    Also, we reserve the right to ban folks from CB who troll other sites.

    Take care.

    • colaroaster

      your site used to kick ass

    • Chuck – Red’s Army

      Thanks Jeff!

  • RedsLoveChild What a joke!!!!

    Isn`t that where “Monsignor Clark” operates such a freewheeling and raucous Celtic blog…that the mere use of the word “damn” will earn you a harsh lecture and a whack on the knuckles with a wooden ruler?

    Yeah, what a sports bar-like atmosphere that is!

    Enjoy the Seminary, pal!

  • Quest

    Counting in the rehab time Bradley may be out longer than Danny suggests. Sounds like another “Shaq” scenario.

  • Brian

    Talking to other people who have had the same procedure its not a problem coming back from, its a problem being able to compete at an nba level. Some will tell you 8/12 weeks but they work behind a desk. He also had them done a month apart so he wasn’t useless and had one arm for a little.bit. in the end its a good idea to get them both done. Remember all the issues perk Usta have. Be will be in training camp for sure, and will be playing before 2013. Why rush him? With Rose out its us and the heat this year. It also gives guys like courtney lee more time to learn our system. We were one qtr away from the finals with a bench of hollins a hurt peaches and daniels. I don’t think people realize how much better this team is. The spurs model is a much better way to the top then making a big three with the new CBA.

  • Can we please cut the shit that’s been going on here this week?

    A) If you don’t like our site, then please feel free to leave. We’ll even help you out the door. We fully understand that some people just won’t like us. That’s fine. We’re big boys here. We can handle it.

    B) Don’t trash other sites either. If you don’t like another site… don’t go trashing them around here. I’ve got a deep respect for just about everyone in the C’s blogging world, and that very much includes Jeff at CelticsBlog.

    And finally…

    C) Yes, we have ads on our sites. All of us do. We all work very hard to bring you what we bring you. We do so out of passion for the game and the team. But we’d also like to get paid for that work.

    I paid for my own flight and my own hotel to Las Vegas. I did so because it’s my passion. But I don’t see anything wrong with wanting to get paid for this so I don’t have to work other jobs to support myself.

    We are VERY careful about the types of ads we choose. We try like hell not to be intrusive. We HATE autoplay ads and when they show up, we do what we can to get them out of the rotation. We never want ads to interfere with your experience.

    But ads are the only way we make any money at all. We’re never going to charge you for “insider” access. We’re never going to ask you to pay to read an article. In exchange, we hope you understand that we need to run ads to make a little money, and we try to be careful about how we run those ads.

    We have a feedback link at the top of the site. Please email us with concerns and we’ll try to address them. And please don’t troll other sites or trash them here. I appreciate the support and I understand if certain sites have styles that you like or don’t like. But those guys are our friends. They’re hustling just like us. Please give them the respect they deserve.

    Thank you.

      So the Board voted down my $79 per month subscription fee? Damn.

      • sambot5k

        No, they didn’t, it just went to your webgal’s pina colada fund.

  • Noori

    I come to this site because its a neatly organized way to get Celtics news so that I dont have to google search and scan through 100s of useless sites. I love this site! Ads dont really bother me.

  • Lakerhater

    You didn’t build that.

    • KY Celts fan

      Ha! +1 to that comment.

  • Kenny

    This is my favorite blog period. There analysis is fair and intriguing. I especially enjoyed the summer league coverage. Please keep up the good work guys!

  • RA_PapaIrish

    There are a long list of loyal readers that John and Chuck have built up through there years of hard work and dedication to supplying quality celtics news and information to diehard fans like myself. With all do respect to celticsblog, who do an excellent job as well, redsarmy is the premier celticsblog on the internet. The only thing that will come from you trashing the site is that you will piss off the many fans of redsarmy and make them ever more so loyal to John and chuck.

  • Jim

    Don’t worry too much John and Chuck,the world is full of idiots.I rely on your site for my daily fix of Celtics news. All the best from Ireland.

  • Celticsfanatic

    All Celtics sites and blogs are awesome because they are full of passionate fans and people doing what they love. For any troll that comes on this site or any other Celtics site for that matter, try making yourself vulnerable every day — starving for readers and all the ups and downs of blogging (it’s not an easy job, whether or not you have an actual audience to entertain) — and then have someone come along and tell you they suck just because they don’t have the time to find every loophole around nuances such as ads. These guys work hard and have commenters and readers galore to show for it so just leave if you don’t like the Celtics or don’t at least want to listen/read.

  • thebantam

    What a tool!

    Ad click site like every other? You mean like every other blogger that goes on other sites promoting someone else’s stuff, how lame and unoriginal.

  • D Wade

    You are still here celticsg, I told ya you momma is calling you. your milk is ready.

    Look ads are part of it, do you watch local tv there is an ad you ride the train you see an ad. watch the NBA and it’s riddled with ads.

    besides has a lot of ads too, you just want attention. You can also see Jeff Clark getting something here at Redsarmy.
