On the pregame show, CSNNE is reporting that Avery Bradley is set to begin practicing with the team in 7-10 days. This fits with the timetable that he gave earlier in the season that put him back practicing in mid-December. He will need to get his conditioning back and get back into game shape and expects to return to the court for games just after the New Year.
The Celtics previously said that he might spend a little time in Maine with the Red Claws for a rehab stint to play in a couple of games before he returns to the court with the Celtics. His return is good news for the Celtics who have been struggling to find their defensive intensity on the court. Bradley will definitely give the defense a boost.
Bradley's return will boost the defense, but there's still no help on the horizon for the rebounding. But hopefully that will come as well.
