2012 NBA Playoffs, 76ers Vs. Celtics: Avery Bradley Will Need Surgery On Shoulder, According To Report

Celtics shooting guard Avery Bradley may be shut down for the rest of the postseason due to a left shoulder injury according to the Boston Globe. A source confirmed to the Globe that there is a 90 percent chance Bradley will not suit up for the remainder of the playoffs and will likely need surgery.

Bradley has already missed the previous two games due to soreness in both shoulders and has been listed as day-to-day by Celtics coach Doc Rivers. Bradley is close to making a decision on whether to undergo the surgery.

The former Longhorn took over as the shooting guard back in April and has been a strong defensive presence for the Celtics. However, injuries have come often to Bradley, as they wrecked his rookie season limiting him to only 31 games.
