Avery Bradley: Out for rest of regular season

Avery Bradley: Out for rest of regular season

Los Angeles Clippers guard Avery Bradley is expected to miss six to eight weeks after undergoing surgery to fix adductor and rectus abdominus muscles on Tuesday, the team announced.

Six to eight weeks is the recovery time for the surgery, which means the Clippers would need to make the postseason for Bradley to have a chance to return this season.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was first to report the news.

Avery Bradley was one of the more interesting pieces involved in the trade that sent Blake Griffin from the Clippers to the Pistons.

It's the first time he has had a race all season (after three easy wins) and that did worry me, I must admit. Buveur d'Air has won the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham for the second year running.

This has been yet another season hampered by injuries for Bradley, who missed 27 games a year ago with the Boston Celtics. Upon his arrival to Los Angeles, Bradley made it sounds as if he was ready to go and was past his groin injury, but clearly that wasn't the case.

Bradley will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. The Clippers now own Bradley's Bird rights, and his relationship with head coach Doc Rivers was a big reason he was excited to play in LA.

Before being traded, Bradley was averaging 15.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 40 games with the Pistons.
