Avery Bradley Injury Update: Celtics Guard Targeting Return For Training Camp

Avery Bradley is targeting to return during training camp for the Boston Celtics after undergoing shoulder surgery during the 2012 NBA playoffs. There was some speculation that the shooting guard would miss the beginning of the regular season, but Bradley has apparently responded well in rehab.

One league source said Bradley has "looked really good" since undergoing the procedure, and that barring a setback a return during training camp is well within reason. That's good news for the Celtics, who may counting on Bradley to take on an expanded role after Ray Allen signed with the Miami Heat.

There is still plenty of reason to be cautious. Bradley suffered setback while rehabbing from ankle surgery before his rookie season, and as a result struggled to make his way on the court last year. He averaged 7.6 points and 1.4 assists in 21.6 minutes per game last season with the Celtics. He shot 40.7 percent from beyond the 3-point arc.
