Bradley signed a two-year, $11.6 million deal with the Heat on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Bradley turned down his $5 million player option with the Lakers, finding more money on the team that the Lakers battled against in the NBA Finals. Though he's getting more money, it seems like he might see a reduced role. The Heat have no shortage of capable guards and wings, including Goran Dragic, Kendrick Nunn, Jimmy Butler, Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson and Andre Iguodala. Bradley wasn't fantasy relevant when he saw 24.2 minutes per game last season, so he's highly unlikely to be fantasy relevant this season.
Bradley declined his $5 million player option for the 2020-21 season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The move makes Bradley an unrestricted free agent, and he figures to garner interest from a number of teams on the open market. Bradley averaged 8.6 points and shot 36.4 percent from three last season but did not play for the Lakers during their run to the title in the Orlando bubble.
Bradley informed the Lakers on Tuesday that he won't join the team when the NBA resumes its season in Orlando in late July, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. "As committed to my Lakers teammates and the organization as I am, I ultimately play basketball for my family," Bradley told Wojnarowski. "And so, at a time like this, I can't imagine making any decision that might put my family's health and well-being at even the slightest risk. As promised also, I will use this time away to focus on the formation of projects to help strengthen my communities."
While Bradley has been among the players to speak up about his concerns with the league's return-to-play plan, Wojnarowski notes that the guard's most pressing concern is the well-being of one of his children, who has a history of respiratory issues. As such, Bradley will opt out of playing in Orlando, which leaves the Lakers without their starting shooting guard and one of their best defensive players. His absence will be a major blow for a team with title aspirations.
Bradley scored a season-high 24 points (9-17 FG, 6-12 3Pt) while adding three rebounds, two steals and an assist in 33 minutes during Sunday's 112-103 win over the Clippers.
The six made threes were also a season best for the veteran guard, who combined with LeBron James and Anthony Davis to account for nearly three-quarters of the Lakers' scoring on the afternoon. Bradley hadn't scored more than 14 points in any of his prior 10 games, so while Sunday's performance was impressive, it's unlikely to be repeated any time soon.
Bradley had zero points (0-8 FG, 0-7 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 22 minutes during Tuesday's 118-109 win over the Pelicans.
After sticking in double-figure scoring for five straight games, Bradley has crashed back to earth in his previous two contests, going 1-of-12 from the field including nine missed threes. A "starter" for his defense, Bradley is unlikely to experience the same late-season boom he supplied owners with last season.
Bradley totaled 21 points (7-11 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, two assists and two steals across 30 minutes during a 125-120 win over the Warriors on Saturday.
The Warriors' focus on LeBron James and Anthony Davis gave Bradley the open looks and confidence to score 11 of his 21 points in the first, which paved the way for how his game would ultimately go. Though it likely won't last, the 29-year-old has started off February hot by scoring 15-plus points in three out of four and shooting 60 percent from deep in that span.
Bradley produced 15 points (5-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, and a rebound across 26 minutes in Thursday's 121-111 loss to the Rockets.
After a string of mediocre games in mid- January, Bradley has enjoyed a bit of a run over the past four games, averaging 13 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists. He's also connected on 57.1 percent of this three-point shot attempts during that period.
Bradley amassed 19 points (7-13 FG, 5-9 3Pt) and two rebounds in 20 minutes during Saturday's 129-113 victory over the Kings.
Bradley scored a season-high 19 points, summing up what a disappointing season it has been thus far. His supporting numbers were basically non-existent and given the fact he eclipsed 15 points only three times this season, he can be safely ignored in almost every format.
Bradley (illness) went for 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt) and three rebounds in 21 minutes Monday in the Lakers' 128-99 win over the Cavaliers.
The Lakers had both members of their starting backcourt available Monday with Bradley and LeBron James both shaking off their respective ailments. While Bradley was able to hit a couple of outside shots, the fact that this kind of stat line is on the upper end of what he provides these days essentially takes him out of consideration outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Bradley (illness) has been cleared to play Monday against Cleveland, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.
Bradley was listed as probable heading into Monday's matchup, so his availability is no surprise. He should draw his 11th straight start Monday evening.
Bradley (illness) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Cavaliers.
Bradley may be dealing with the flu-like symptoms that sidelined LeBron James in Saturday's win over the Thunder, but both backcourt starters are likely to play Monday. While starting each of the past 10 games, Bradley is averaging 7.4 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.0 three-pointer in 22.2 minutes.
Bradley totaled three points (1-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes during Saturday's 125-110 victory over the Thunder.
The 29-year-old struggled to get involved amidst the offensive production, his only points coming off a three-pointer in the third assisted by teammate Rajon Rondo. Despite the absence of stars LeBron James (illness) and Anthony Davis (back), Bradley didn't step up, suggesting that he may lack value even when the Lakers' central pieces are not present.
Bradley (illness) is starting Saturday against the Thunder, Maddie Lee of The Oklahomanreports.
The 29-year-old was listed as probable due to the illness, so it's no surprise to see him remain in the starting five. Bradley could see heavier minutes than usual Saturday with Lebron James (illness), Danny Green (hip) and Anthony Davis (back) sidelined.
Bradley is considered probable for Saturday's game against the Thunder due to an illness, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Fortunately, Bradley's illness doesn't appear to be overly serious as the veteran guard's expected to play against the Thunder. In the unlikely event he's held out, Alex Caruso would be in line to enter the starting lineup.
Bradley (illness) will play Friday against the Mavericks, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Bradley has been under the weather, but the medical staff has cleared him for Friday's action. He's coming off a 12-point performance across 24 minutes Tuesday against the Knicks.
Bradley (illness) is considered questionable for Friday's game against Dallas, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.
Bradley came down with an illness Thursday morning, but he'll make the trip to Texas with the team in hopes of suiting up. If he's held out, his next chance to play will come Saturday in Oklahoma City.
Bradley (ankle) will play Tuesday against the Knicks, Mark Medina of USA Today reports.
Bradley carried a questionable tag into Tuesday due to a right ankle sprain, but the team has given him the green light to run the floor in what looks to be a favorable matchup for the Lakers. He's started the last seven games for Los Angeles, averaging 7.3 points and 1.9 rebounds over that span.
The Lakers have ruled Bradley (ankle) as questionable for Tuesday's tilt against the Knicks, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.
Bradley rolled his ankle in Sunday's victory over the Pistons and was unable to return. Fortunately, X-rays came back negative, but his status for Tuesday's game remains uncertain. He is likely a true game-time decision, so expect an update closer to tip-off.
Bradley will not return to Sunday night's game against the Pistons due to a sprained right ankle, per the Lakers' telecast.
Bradley tweaked his ankle during a fastbreak in the second quarter and will not return to the contest. The good news is an X-ray returned negative, but it wouldn't be a surprise if Bradley ends up missing a game or two.
Bradley amassed 18 points (9-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds, three steals and one assist in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 117-107 victory over the Suns.
Bradley was an efficient 9-of-11 from the field Wednesday, scoring a season-high 18 points. Bradley has not been good this season and one strong performance is unlikely to change that. He is outside the top 300 over the past two weeks and should not be added after this effort. We would need to see him string a number of decent games together before even considering him in 12-team leagues.
