This isn't news you want to hear, but the Celtics do need to shake off the label of Bradley is the savior of this team. Because we have no idea if, or when anyone will go down. Bradley has been an injury prone player since day one, and it's for the fact he puts his body on the line. Rest Bradley for the next two games. The Celtics play two teams they should beat, and with this team that quote makes no sense.
"They just want to make sure (his ribs aren't) cracked or something like that. I think the X-ray showed it wasn't, but maybe do a deeper one just to make sure," he said.
Rivers said Bradley could still travel with the team for the upcoming two-game road trip, but listed him as doubtful for Sunday's matchup with the Pistons.
"It just didn't improve," Rivers said. "He was better. He told me he felt much better and then today he said, 'Man, I just feel the same,' so that's not an improvement."
