Ainge: Bradley 'getting closer' to return

Posted by shawn cassidy on December 6, 2012 at 11:30 PM

"I think our timetable is to get him back probably after the West Coast trip," Ainge said. "I mean, that's hopeful. I hate doing timetables, but we are getting closer, and he is looking good. We'd like to get him practicing, and we're going to contemplate the possibility of some rehab games in Portland, maybe one or two. Maybe none. But we'll be really careful with Avery."

"[Avery] just turned 22 years old last week, and coming off an injury, we can't put too much on Avery Bradley's plate," Ainge told WEEI. "But, Avery's defense and presence does make a difference. I mean, his energy, athleticism, passion for the game is contagious. And it does inspire his teammates, it inspires the crowd, and everybody else is exposed more when Avery's on the court, because he's the difference in guys who are playing hard and guys who aren't."

I agree let's not think that Bradley will come in, and change things. I've said that already. But he will impact the Celtics somewhat when he returns. Bradley still won't cure the Celtics poor  interior defense. But will have the Wade stopper back.

I just think that we need our guards to be very aggressive on defense, but Bradley can't do it all by himself. Rondo is struggling to find the balance between offense and defense, and so is Lee, but coming at it from the opposite side.
