The Celtics will be without Avery Bradley and Vitor Faverani for their West Coast trip that begins tomorrow night in Phoenix.— Boston Celtics (@celtics) February 18, 2014
Somehow, this news will probably get spun into some trade rumors, but at face value, it looks like the team is just being very cautious about AB's tweaked ankle and Vitor's knee. If they were on the block and were marginally healthy, you would think they would suit up in tomorrow's game in Phoenix as a final showcase before the deadline, right? Both had MRI's done before the break and they both came up negative. Missing the next four games on the road gives them a week of rest and rehab back in Boston.
