The Boston Celtics job just got a little bit tougher.
According to Gethin Coolbaugh, head coach Doc Rivers has stated that he doesn't believe Avery Bradley will be ready to play on Wednesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers,
Bradley would be a major loss after being such a bright spot through the entire season, including this playoff run. He's one of the best on-ball defenders in the game and without him, could put a lot more stress on Ray Allen to play some extra minutes.
Boston was able to win Game Five in convincing fashion without Bradley, but it will become a tougher task with each passing game. A shoulder injury is always tricky to deal with, considering the amount of stress it goes through in a typical NBA game.
Bradley is doubtful for Game Six while his return date is still very much in the air for a team with aspirations of a title.
