Avery Bradley Injury Will Likely Keep Him Out For Game 6, Maybe Longer

The Boston Celtics are not the deepest team in the NBA, but Doc Rivers' team has been able to get by thus far with the players available to him on the bench. Unfortunately his bench will be a bit short once again on Wednesday night, however, as the Celtics try to close out the Philadelphia 76ers on the road.

Spot starter Avery Bradley has been dealing with intermittent injury issues throughout the NBA Playoffs, but it seems the defensive dynamo will likely miss Game 6, and maybe not more.

This is unfortunate news for the Celtics, but as long as Ray Allen is back to being 100 percent, it shouldn't have that big of a deal on the outcome of the current series. Going forward is likely a different story, though, considering how many injury issues the Celtics have already been dealing with this year.
