Avery Bradley’s hamstring injury will likely keep him sidelined for the rest of the Boston Celtics’ first-round playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks.
Coach Brad Stevens told reporters on Sunday that an MRI scan revealed Bradley has a significant strain, and is “very unlikely” for the rest of the series.
The 6-2 guard suffered the injury while playing defense in the fourth quarter of the Celtics’ 102-101 loss to Atlanta on Friday.
Stevens told reporters Bradley that he heard his hamstring pop. After going down on the court, medical staff helped him to the locker room.
Bradley’s absence will mean more playing time for Marcus Smart and Evan Turner.
