Avery Bradley‘s MRI on Nov. 14 revealed a hairline fracture in a non-weight bearing bone of his right leg (fibular head), the Los Angeles Lakers officially announced on Nov. 15.
Bradley will be re-evaluated in 1-to-2 weeks and further medical updates on him will be provided at that time.
While X-rays returned negative, Bradley did not play against the Chicago Bulls. However, the 28-year-old did return for the team’s next four games where he played extremely well.
Considering Bradley only missed one game and there were no signs of the injury impacting him, it is unfortunate.
In 10 games (all starts), Bradley is averaging 9.6 points (48.8 percent shooting from the field), 3.2 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in 27.4 minutes for head coach Frank Vogel.
After playing 14 minutes against the Phoenix Suns and not playing in the second game of a back-to-back situation, it is unclear if Rondo is still on a minutes restriction now.
With the Lakers entering an extremely soft part of their schedule now, Bradley can take all the time that he needs and ensure he is completely healthy when he returns.
