Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge hinted that Avery Bradley suffered a Grade 2 hamstring strain in Game 1 and dubbed him a “long shot” to play again in the first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks.
During his weekly call to Boston sports radio station 98.5, Ainge said Bradley avoided the more serious Grade 3 strain and was “closer to Grade 1.” A Grade 2 strain would suggest a partial muscle tear and Ainge insisted he won’t let Bradley return until he’s at full health.
