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:“I feel a lot better,” Bradley said. “I’m just so excited that I’m getting more closer medically. I can’t 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.”“Doc kind of stays out of [when I would return],” Bradley said. “It’s really up to the trainers and the strength and conditioning coaches and me, to see how I feel. It’s hard for him to determine because I’m 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. They’re just protecting me and I want to protect myself because when I come back I want to have no setbacks.“I feel a lot better. I’m doing pushups now. I try to do them every single day. I feel a lot stronger; it’s like night and day how I feel from two weeks ago.”Personally, I was really hyped that Bradley can do pushups. Since he injured his shoulders, I felt his ability to do pushups again meant he’s obviously very strong now. But a buddy emailed, “He JUST started doing pushups? Um, take three more weeks, then. We need him healthy all year, not until the first time he gets hit hard on a screen.”The Celtics can take their time with Bradley. Be patient. He’s 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 wasn’t excited Bradley finally has a timetable, I’d be lying.
