Avery Bradley Working His Way Back

Avery Bradley underwent surgery on his left ankle shortly after the Celtics selected him with the 19th overall pick in the most recent NBA Draft. Now he finds himself on the mend, and he's working out at the Celtics' practice facility in Waltham on a daily basis. 

Bradley: 'Getting better every single day' - ESPN Boston

"I'm just trying to recover," said Bradley, the Texas guard selected at No. 19 in this year's draft. "I'm doing rehab, lifting weights, trying to get back as fast as possible. It's been real good. I'm able to walk now. I'm getting better every single day."

Bradley doesn't think he's necessarily behind because he missed Boston's five-game slate in Orlando, but admits he missed "getting a feel for the NBA game." He's watching extra film to learn the team's offensive and defensive sets, and has been picking the brains of veterans Kendrick Perkins and Ray Allen, who he's seen a lot of while working out in Waltham.

"They haven't really told me [about my role]," Bradley said. "I'm just here and I'm ready to help the Celtics any way I can."
