The Los Angeles Lakers announced on Thursday that guard Avery Bradley will be re-evaluated the day after Thanksgiving.
Bradley will miss one-to-two weeks with a hairline fracture in his right leg.
The Lakers say that Avery Bradley will be re-evaluated the day after Thanksgiving once the team has returned from its 4-game road trip. Also, Alex Caruso (right calf strain) is probable for Friday in OKC.

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.
The Lakers are 12-2 on the season. They have 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 tee. LA appears well on its way to a title run this season.
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 take on the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday. LA just defeated the Thunder at home in their previous game, winning by a final score of 112-107.
We’ll see what type of medical update the Lakers have on Bradley on Nov. 29 when they take on the Washington Wizards at Staples Center.
