First-Round Pick Avery Bradley Won’t Be Ready for Start of Celtics Training Camp


Sep 23, 2010

There will be a lot of new faces at Celtics camp on Monday but rookie Avery Bradley won't be one of them.

According to C's general manager Danny Ainge, Bradley won't be ready for the start of camp.

Ainge explained that Bradley, who underwent surgery on left ankle in the offseason, is still "a couple of weeks away, at least."

"We're certainly not going to rush him," he added, while speaking to the media prior to the C's 3rd annual Celtics Shamrock Classic at Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy.

The C's picked Bradley with their 19th overall pick in this year's draft. The guard sprained his ankle while working out for the Thunder in Mid-June. He underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle July 2, the same day he
inked his rookie deal with the Celtics.
