Avery Bradley Out 1-2 Weeks with Leg Injury

Avery Bradley

The Los Angeles Lakers are off to a great start as they sit on top of the Western Conference. But, they are dealing with a few injuries.

Lakers forward Anthony Davis missed Wednesday’s game against the Golden State Warriors, as he nurses shoulder and rib injuries. The Lakers managed to beat the Warriors 120-94. They managed to get the win, as LeBron James tallied a double-double with 23 points and 12 assists.

Davis is set to return, but the Lakers will be done another player. According to reports, Avery Bradley will be out one to two weeks with a hairline fracture in his right leg.

Bradley suffered the injury earlier this month in a game against the San Antonio Spurs. He collided with Spurs guard Dejounte Murray and missed one game after the collision. Bradley continued to play up to this point. Then, he underwent an MRI that revealed the hairline fracture.

Lakers head coach Frank Vogel discussed the injury on Friday.

“It’s the same injury, and he’s been playing through pretty significant pain,” Vogel said. “They wanted to go through and give it another MRI to make sure there was nothing there, and they found something there. So it’ll just be a couple weeks, hopefully.”

Vogel also complimented Bradley’s defense and how he helps the team on the defensive end.

“He’s been a tone setter for us on the defensive end,” Vogel said. “So he’ll be missed.

This season, Bradley averages 9.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.0 steals. He also shoots 48.8 percent from the field.
