Lakers’ Avery Bradley cleared for full contact practice, considered day-to-day

Avery Bradley, Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers guard Avery Bradley has been cleared for full contact practice after having the hairline fracture in his right leg re-evaluated on Saturday.

Bradley is out on Sunday against the Minnesota Timberwolves and considered day to day after that.

In 10 games this season for the Lakers, Bradley is averaging 9.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists. He’s shooting 48.8 percent from the field, 28.6 percent from beyond the arc and 75.0 percent from the free-throw line.

Bradley, 28, signed a two-year deal with the Lakers in free agency. He’s using this season to show that he’s still one of the best perimeter defenders in the league. Bradley is making $4,767,000 this season. He has a player option worth $5,005,350 for next season.

The Lakers are 20-3 on the season. They are tied with the Milwaukee Bucks for the best record in the NBA. Superstars LeBron James and Anthony Davis are clicking on all cylinders, while the role players on the team are playing their roles to a T. LA appears well on its way to a title run this season.

Once Bradley returns, LA will be even more lethal. Everything is going well for the Lakers right now. It’s a complete turnaround from what happened last season when the Purple and Gold missed the playoffs in LeBron’s first season with the team.
