The Celtics have recalled rookie guard Avery Bradley from the NBDL Maine Red Claws today and expect him to rejoin the team in Charlotte for tonight’s game. The injury to Marquis Daniels, and what could be a lenghty time away, contributed to the need to make a move and recall Bradley back up to the big club.
Bradley is a talented rookie, but was wasting away on the Celtics bench. The time spent in Maine has paid dividends. Bradley got an opportunity to play on a nightly basis and has averaged 17.1 points, 5.2 assists and 4.8 rebounds in six starts for the Red Claws.
Bradley should see an increase in minutes entering into a rotation with Von Wafer and Nate Robinson for the backup guard minutes.
