Playing catch with a football is one of the ways the Celtics staff is breaking up the monotony of Bradley’s lengthy rehabilitation from double shoulder surgery. Bradley has been sidelined since last May and will be re-evaluated in two weeks to determine if he can return to practice this month.
“It was something we do to help my arm strength,” Bradley explained to CSNNE.com. “We try to make it fun at the same time. At first I wasn’t sure about it. I was like, ‘B.Doo (Celtics strength and conditioning coach Bryan Doo), this doesn’t make sense.’ Once I started doing it, him throwing the ball hard and me extending, I have to do the same thing with a basketball and I have to see if I’m able to do it or not. It definitely helps. This is our second time doing it. Since it helps me out, we will probably continue doing it.”
