Avery Bradley says "I'm maybe a week or two weeks away from returning to full practice." #Celticsabout 13 hours ago via TweetDeckReplyRetweetFavorite@TragsMike PetragliaVia the Boston Globe:āI feel a lot better,ā Bradley said. āIām just so excited that Iām getting more closer medically. I canāt wait to see my teammates. Every single day I come in, I tell the trainers to have them test me out to see how strong I am.āāDoc kind of stays out of [when I would return],ā Bradley said. āItās really up to the trainers and the strength and conditioning coaches and me, to see how I feel. Itās hard for him to determine because Iām such a tough guy and I want to get out there. They put me through a lot of tests because I lie to them sometimes because I want to be back. Theyāre just protecting me and I want to protect myself because when I come back I want to have no setbacks.āI feel a lot better. Iām doing pushups now. I try to do them every single day. I feel a lot stronger; itās like night and day how I feel from two weeks ago.āPersonally, I was really hyped that Bradley can do pushups. Since he injured his shoulders, I felt his ability to do pushups again meant heās obviously very strong now. But a buddy emailed, āHe JUST started doing pushups?Ā Um, take three more weeks, then. We need him healthy all year, not until the first time he gets hit hard on a screen.āThe Celtics can take their time with Bradley. Be patient. Heās a 22-year old rising stud. Let him return to full health before bringing him anywhere near the court. But yeah, if I told you I wasnāt excited Bradley finally has a timetable, Iād be lying.
