Boston Celtics

BOSTON (CBS) – While the Boston Celtics enjoyed the return of Ray Allen in their Game 3 win against the Hawks on Friday night, they have to be a little concerned about guard Avery Bradley, who left the game with a dislocated shoulder.

Bradley’s status for Sunday’s Game 4 remains unknown.

“Shoulder went out,” head coach Doc Rivers said after Boston’s 90-84 overtime win, giving them a 2-1 series lead. “And he’s had that problem all year. Usually they’re able to — like a Lego — snap it back in. It wouldn’t go back in. So we’ll find out more (Saturday).”

Bradley suffered the injury late in the third quarter and eventually went to the locker room with team doctor Brian McKeon. The team initially said Bradley would return, but shortly after ruled him out for the rest of the game.

Bradley finished Friday’s game with five points, four rebounds and a block in 24:54 on the floor. The 21-year-old guard appeared in a team-high 64 games during the regular season.

The Celtics aren’t scheduled to practice Saturday, but will re-evaluate Bradley before Sunday’s Game 4.
