Avery Bradley's status undetermined after All-Star break

Written by 

Boston Celtics starting shooting guard Avery Bradley has battled his fair share of injuries recently, sustaining two ankle sprains in less than a month. 

Bradley's latest sprain, in fact, might even keep him out post All-Star Weekend. The 23-year-old underwent a second MRI, indicating that he had in fact suffered the second injury Feb. 5 in Philadelphia.

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens is unsure when Bradley will be back, but remains hopeful that the injury won't linger.

"Hopefully it's going to be something that's not long term, or doesn't look like it will be," Stevens said Wednesday. "It looks like it's just the same as the first one."

Bradley suffered the original ankle sprain Jan. 21 against the Miami Heat and missed five games before returning to the court on Feb. 2. By the time Feb. 5 hit, he was sidelined with yet another ankle sprain.

"It's always concerning when a guy is unable to play," Stevens said. "Again, it's not a long-term issue. We'll be very [cautious], like I thought we were last time from everything that I could tell. I know that our doctors and our training staff will do their due diligence..."

At this point it doesn't seem like anyone is too concerned with Bradley's recent struggles to stay healthy, but it is certainly an issue worth keeping an eye on.
