Lakers’ Avery Bradley says he’s fully healthy after previously dealing with groin injury
New Los Angeles Lakers guard Avery Bradley says he has left all his injury problems behind after battling through a groin setback through the vast part of the past season:
“I feel great right now,” said Bradley, according to Harrison Faigen of Silver Screen & Roll. “Last year I was battling coming back from my groin injury, and now I’m 100 percent. feeling extremely great right now. Healthy, in shape. My role, I would expect It to be similar to my role my second year in Boston, being a guy that’s expected to camp on the defensive end and play off our key players. Whether making cuts, or just finding other ways to get guys open by my cutting ability. That’s my focus. looking at it as me playing with Paul Pierce and KG all over again.”
Bradley will have much more than an aging Pierce and Garnett to work with, but a generational talent in LeBron James and a star nearing his peak in Anthony Davis, along with a bevy of role players expected to help them maximize their output.
If the 6-foot-2 guard out of Texas can recover his calling as a 3-and-D asset, he could carve himself an important spot in Frank Vogel’s rotation, considering he has been fond of two-way players who can get it done at both ends.
Bradley’s fate with his new team largely revolves into how healthy and ready to play he comes into camp, as Vogel will have plenty of new faces to assess upon making his debut at the helm of the purple and gold.
