Clips' Bradley out for regular season after surgery

Clips' Bradley out for regular season after surgery

Avery Bradley underwent surgery to fix adductor and rectus abdominus muscles and will be sidelined for between six and eight weeks, the Clippers announced Tuesday. Wherever he lands, Bradley will likely be undervalued in fantasy drafts next October. Since the trade, the Pistons have gone 7-10 while the Clippers have compiled a record of 11-5, one loss being the game immediately after the trade when LA didn't have any of the three incoming players available yet. Bradley was acquired in order to fill a void created when fellow guard Patrick Beverley underwent season-ending right knee surgery on November 22.

The last update we got was coach Doc Rivers saying that Bradley wasn't close to a return.

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. He played only six games with the Clippers, averaging 9 points, before he was sidelined.

The Clippers initially identified the injury as a sports hernia.

Bradley, who played for Rivers when both were with the Boston Celtics, can become a free agent at season's end. It's uncertain whether the Clippers will re-sign him, however.
