Video: Celtics G Avery Bradley re-injures shoulder, leaves Game 2 vs. Sixers

Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley injured his left shoulder after taking a hit from Elton Brand during the second quarter of Game 2 against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Bradley immediately checked out of the game and headed to the locker room. The Celtics called it a "sore left shoulder" and said he would be re-evaluated at halftime. 

Update: Bradley did not start the second half for the Celtics but returned to the game at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Celtics coach Doc Rivers said after the game that Bradley's shoulder "popped out" but that medical staff members were able to put it back in. Rivers said that he was initially told that Bradley would not be available for the remainder of the game but that he was able to return once feeling returned to his left hand.

Bradley finished with 8 points, 1 rebound, 1 assist and 1 steal on 3-for-6 shooting in 20 minutes. The Sixers went on to win 82-81 to even the series at one game apiece.
