#Celticstalk: #Celtics guard Avery Bradley not expected to play tonight.
— A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) January 18, 2013
Apparently the rib injury he was dealing with yesterday didn't heal quick enough. The Celtics are 14-16 this season without Bradley and give up over ten additional points a game when he does not suit up (98 compared to 87). The C's are 6-2 with Bradley in the line-up.
The C's 8 game streak of holding their opponents below 100+ points would now seem to be in jeopardy, although the Bulls aren't exactly an offensive juggernaut.
Interestingly enough, the C's will apparently start Leandro Barbosa in his place, not Courtney Lee or Jason Terry. Celtics looking to keep a bench unit that has finally found a rhythm intact it seems. From Sean Grande,
Avery Bradley (ribs) likely will not play tonight. Leandro Barbosa would start in his pl...

Joakim Noah and Kevin Garnett have a history against each other, and Noah had a funny response when asked about KG's trash talk.
See, who says Danny Ainge doesn't read CelticsLife? When rumors about Greg Oden's possible return to the NBA surfaced, I implored Ainge to take a look at the former Buckeye and Trailblazer (link). Why? Well under the simple premise that 25 year old 7 footers who have put up great rate stats and are willing to possibly accept the league minimum do not exactly grow on trees...
7:10: The Celtics, after their loss to the Hornets, will host the Bulls tonight. Avery Bradley will not play due to a rib injury. Barbosa will start in his place. The game can be seen on ESPN. Keep checking here after each quarter for updates.
It was just announced that Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett were voted in by the fans to start in the 2012-13 NBA All-Star game. Rondo and Kevin Garnett led the fan voting for a while, so this comes at no surprise. This is Garnett's 15th all-star game, and Rondo's 4th. Whether or not they deserve it is up to your discretion. They will be starting next to Dwyane Wade, Lebron...
In light of Chris Wilcox’s injury troubles and Jason Collins … being Jason Collins, Celtics fans have been clamoring for the C’s to acquire a backup center who can rebound and defend. It appears that Danny Ainge agrees; as the Celtics are reportedly keeping an eye on former number one draft pick Greg Oden:Greg Oden, the No. 1 pick in 2007 who hasn’t played in an NBA game...
The Celtics really lost focus last night and just played terribly. I mean there's now excuse for a pro team to shoot 37% from the line. That's lack of focus. Maybe they all subconsciously were trying to make Austin look better because he's struggling so much and that was their gift to their coach. Hopefully they get it together for Friday's game. 37% from...
Here we are, winners of 6 out of our last 10 games and trying to right our ship, lets see what the writers from Celticslife think in our newest addiction of 5 on 5:
1. The Celtics have been playing really well lately (other then that stinker the other night). What has been the difference?
Terry P: Jeff Green. Now look, I have been hard on him PLENTY and still want to trade his...
The fellas did a couple of shows over the past couple of weeks… spanning back to the Kevin Garnett vs. Melo Cheerios thing…
Kurt and Dave also spent some time discussing how they would feel about Paul Pierce being traded. They also got into their usual predictions and such, as well as bringing back the Green Kool-Aid King for a week.
This will be a great time to mention that...
On Thursday TNT announced the starters of the NBA Eastern and Western Conference All-Star starters. Since we are an Atlantic Division based website, the main starters representing the respected division are Boston Celtics Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett, as well as New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony.

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.
Greg Oden, the No. 1 pick in 2007 who hasn’t played in an NBA game since 2009 due to a litany of knee injuries, is aiming for a comeback. Part of Oden’s plan is to sign with a team in the next month and get...
Highlights from tonight's overtime loss above. Celtics box score below.
By now it is no secret that Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett likes to talk on the court. Whether it is an attempt to gain a mental edge over an opponent or KG genuinely not liking his adversary, he has been known to let his opponent know how he feels.
Typically opposing players won’t elaborate on on the court trash talk, but Bulls center Joakim Noah had some interesting...
Congratulations to Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett for being voted in by the fans as starters. Between KG and Melo in the frontcourt and Dwyane Wade and Rondo in the back court, this may be one...
After the game last night Joakim Noah (son of French professional tennis player Yannick Noah) was asked about playing defense against Kevin Garnett. Here's what Noah had to say:
(I was) just playing defense. Just playing sound defense, just contesting his shots. He's a helluva competitor. He's always on some bulls---. Always on some bulls---. Just trying to throw elbows...
The Boston Celtics' recent roller-coaster ride of results has taken another downward dip. That's the same trend they've been on against the Detroit Pistons lately.
The streaky Celtics look to get back on track Sunday night when they visit a Detroit team playing for the first time since its trip to London.
After losing four straight Dec. 27-Jan. 2, Boston won six in...
