Clippers' Avery Bradley (groin) undergoes surgery, to miss remainder of regular season

Postado Março 15, 2018

Avery Bradley underwent surgery to fix adductor and rectus abdominis muscles on Tuesday and will miss the rest of the regular season. Unfortunately, he will miss the remainder of the season as recovery time for this surgery is now set at six-to-eight weeks.

Bradley came to Los Angeles as a part of the blockbuster trade that sent star forward Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons and Tobias Harris as well as Boban Marjanović to the Clippers.

The Clippers acquired Bradley from the Pistons in the blockbuster multi-player trade that sent Blake Griffin to Detroit on January 29.

Bradley, who played for Rivers when both were with the Boston Celtics, can become a free agent at season's end. The Clippers now own Bradley's Bird rights, and his relationship with head coach Doc Rivers was a big reason he was excited to play in LA. He played only six games with the Clippers, averaging 9 points, before he was sidelined.

Before being traded, Bradley was averaging 15.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 40 games with the Pistons.
