Clips' Bradley out for regular season after surgery

Los Angeles Clippers guard Avery Bradley is expected to miss six to eight weeks after undergoing surgery to fix adductor and rectus abdominus muscles on Tuesday, the team announced. Six weeks to eight weeks is the recovery time on the surgery, according to Adrian Wojnarowski‏ of ESPN.

Bradley sat out for seven games earlier in the season with the Pistons, and the Clippers were aware of his injury before the trade.

Bradley, 27, joined the Clippers in January as part of the Blake Griffin trade with the Detroit Pistons. Upon his arrival to Los Angeles, Bradley made it sounds as if he was ready to go and was past his groin injury, but clearly that wasn't the case.

The last update we got was coach Doc Rivers saying that Bradley wasn't close to a return. He's averaged 9.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists in six games with Los Angeles and hasn't played since February 14 due to a sports hernia.

This year was a contract year for Bradley, who will now be hitting unrestricted free agency in the summer.

Bradley finished with averages of 14.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.1 steals per game on 40.9 percent shooting in 46 games during the 2017-18 season.
