Avery Bradley has a 2nd right ankle sprain, out indefinitly

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

He'll be out through the All Star break at least.

Avery Bradley can't catch a break (though apparently he can catch a sprain).  It turns out that the same right ankle that he sprained on Jan. 21st has another (separate) sprain.  So he'll miss some more time.

Bradley underwent another MRI on the ankle that revealed the new sprain. After meeting with team doctors, the Celtics decided to shut him down through the All-Star break, but coach Brad Stevens said it's unclear if he'll be ready when the team resumes play next Wednesday. "We did another look at it, he's out tonight, and then possibly will be out after that," Stevens said before Wednesday night's game against the San Antonio Spurs. "Hopefully it's going to be something that's not long term, or doesn't look like it will be. It looks like it's just the same as the first one, so not a long-term thing."

It must be frustrating for him, but it is important that he takes his time and gets healthy again for the long term.

This is another reason why keeping Chris Johnson around for the rest of the season is a very good thing.
