Clippers' Avery Bradley reportedly out for rest of regular season following surgery

Wednesday, 14 Mar, 2018

He's played for the Detroit Pistons and Clippers in 2017-18, coming over to Los Angeles as part of the Blake Griffin trade to Detroit. Bradley is a great perimeter defender and his ability to hit 3-pointers makes him versatile offensively.

The LA Clippers have been without guard Avery Bradley for the last couple of weeks as he recovers from a strained groin, and on Tuesday afternoon, the team announced Bradley had undergone successful surgery to fix his adductor and rectus abdominis muscles.

On Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported Bradley underwent surgery to fix his adductor and rectus abdominis muscles. Upon his arrival to Los Angeles, Bradley made it sounds as if he was ready to go and was past his groin injury, but clearly that wasn't the case.

This has to be disappointing for Bradley.

Bradley, who'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer, has been out since the February All-Star break for the Clippers, and has played only six games since he left Detroit as part of the Blake Griffin deal on January 29.

Bradley was initially diagnosed with a sports hernia, but this latest news suggests he was dealing with some muscular issues that were a bit more serious.

While it's never good to be missing a player, the Clippers shouldn't see too much falloff from not having Bradley. They'll likely keep that up even with Bradley out longer than they would prefer.
