Avery Bradley Injury: Celtics Guard Hurts Shoulder, Leaves Game

The Boston Celtics are without shooting guard Avery Bradley, at least temporarily. With just over five minutes remaining in the second quarter of Game 2 against the Philadelphia 76ers, Bradley took the ball to the basket and got between Lou Williams and Elton Brand. It appeared that Brand made contact with Bradley's left arm when he attempted to make a block, injuring Bradley's shoulder. It looks like a fairly innocent play on video, but the shoulder that Bradley injures on the play was his previously-injured left shoulder.

Bradley appeared to be in serious pain on the bench before he went back to the locker room. David Aldridge reported on TNT's broadcast of the game that Bradley has a separated left shoulder. He suffered the same injury in Game 3 against the Atlanta Hawks and did not return to that game.
