Avery Bradley injures finger versus Spurs

Associated Press
As the San Antonio Spurs were 26 seconds away from handing the Celtics its second loss of the season, Celtics guard Avery Bradley and team doctors headed towards the team locker room.

After the game, Bradley was seen in the locker room with his right index finger in a splint and his wrist wrapped before he spoke to the media.
"I got it caught in someone's jersey and bent my fingers back," said Bradley. "It's just swollen right now."
Bradley, who scored a team-high 18 points against the Spurs, played his best game of the young season. He's battled a few setbacks throughout his career, including injuries to both shoulders and his right ankle. Hopefully his right index finger won't be another tough blow, and force him to miss extended time on the court this season.
"I've just been trying to tell myself to be more aggressive, go to the basket stronger," said Bradley. "When I broke my ankle, I feel like it's always in the back of my head that I can go and re-injure myself. I just have to go out there and play basketball and not think."
The Celtics have three days to rest until they play the Pacers in Indiana on Wednesday. Bradley may sit out of Tuesday's practice, and be a game time decision come Wednesday.
