Just as the Celtics are finally getting Avery Bradley back from injury, they still may not have their projected starting five on the court at the same time.
Rajon Rondo is nursing injuries that could keep him out of Wednesday’s game against the Grizzlies. Fortunately, it’s not an injury that should keep Rondo out long, and Boston should have their best five together soon.
Rondo and Doc Rivers had some high praise for Bradley as he returns to the team. Rondo said Bradley is the best defensive guard in the NBA, while Rivers said that Bradley is in the top five in on-the-ball defense. You would think that would do wonders for the Celtics’ struggling defense.
Watch the video above to hear how the Celtics think Bradley’s return will help the team.
