LA Clippers guard Avery Bradley underwent surgery to fix adductor and rectus abdominis muscles on Tuesday and will likely miss the rest of the regular season. Unfortunately, he will miss the remainder of the season as recovery time for this surgery is now set at six-to-eight weeks.

The recovery timeline will keep Bradley out for the remainder of the regular season, though he potentially could return if the Clippers make the postseason.


The Clippers are 36-29 and holding on to the seventh seed. 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. The 27-year-old hasn't played in almost a calendar month, and he'll now remain out into mid-April, at the earliest, meaning that if he does return this season, it would likely have to be sometime in the late-first-round or early-second-round of the postseason.

Before being traded, Bradley was averaging 15.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 40 games with the Pistons. He hasn't had one of his best seasons and is going to be a free agent this summer.
