2012 NBA Playoffs, Celtics Vs. Sixers Game 2: All Boston Celtics Expected To Play

Avery Bradley and the rest of the bang-up Boston Celtics are all expected to be available for Wednesday night's Game 3 against the Philadelphia 76ers, Doc Rivers said Wednesday at the team's shootaround.

Bradley's shoulder popped out of its socket during Game 2, forcing him to leave the game temporarily. After missing more than a quarter, he returned in the final frame to hit a clutch three and slam home a dunk as the Celtics built a fourth-quarter surge that was ultimately futile. The shoulder is a concern moving forward, as it has now popped out several times in the past few weeks.

Ray Allen (bone spurs in his ankle), Paul Pierce (sprained MCL) and Mickael Pietrus (swollen knee) are all battling injury issues of their own, but shouldn't be kept out of the lineup.
