Avery Bradley will try to play tonight (game time decision)

Jared Wickerham

Bradley's status is still up in the air, but he wants to give it a go and will see how his body feels tonight.

Sounds like it is up to Avery Bradley if he wants to play tonight or not. And he's got to listen to his body to see if he can give it a go.

One thing is clear: He's going to do whatever he can to get back on the floor, possibly as early as tonight. "I think it's really Avery's call," said coach Doc Rivers. "It's a pain-tolerance thing. And that's a very painful injury. My guess is he's not playing, but he's going to try to work out today." "It's still a little sore," Bradley said prior to this morning's shootaround. "I'll find out closer to the game if I'm going to play tonight or not."

We all know Bradley is tough as nails and played through more pain last year than most of us can imagine. And hopefully the training staff would not put him out there in a situation where he could do more damage than good to himself. But you can understand why he is so eager to get out there and help his team (that appears to need him very, very much).

"It's very frustrating, I've already missed a lot of games this year," he said. "And to not be able to be there for my team is frustrating." RIvers said Bradley will have to be aware of injuries but doesn't want him to change his style. Leandro Barbosa got the start on Friday in place of the injured Bradley. He would likely start again if Bradley is unable to play.
