Report: Celtics' Bradley may miss start of camp for personal reasons
Celtics guard could miss preseason due to the passing of his mother and impending birth of his child.
Four-time All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo is still on the mend from a torn right ACL injury that was surgically repaired in February, and his backcourt mate Avery Bradley is also questionable due to the recent death of his mother.
"He's going through a very difficult time," Danny Ainge, Boston's president of basketball operations, told CSNNE.com. "His mother passed away and they were very close and he's expecting a baby any day. He's got a lot going on."
Bradley's mother, Alicia "Lisa" Jones, 46, passed away on September 10.
When asked if Bradley might be late to training camp, Ainge responded, "I don't know. We're just taking it day-by-day right now."
Boston is already expected to be without Rajon Rondo who continues to recover from ACL surgery. Boston opens November 1 against Milwaukee in Boston.
Bradley averaged 12 points and three assists last season for Boston, and established himself as one of the premier perimeter defenders in the NBA.
