Guard Avery Bradley will start for the Celtics in Game 4 tonight, according to Celtics coach Doc Rivers. Bradley injured his left shoulder late in Friday's Game 3 against Atlanta and did not return.

Rivers said Bradley's shoulder had to be put back into place, something that's happened three to four times this season.

Bradley warmed up twice before tonight's game under the direction of team doctor Brian McKeon before being cleared to play.

"It's a concern," said Rivers. "It's a concern tonight and moving forward as well. We're just going to throw him out there ... I guess each time it comes out you lose strength. But he's ready to go."

Rivers said he wasn't sure whether or not Bradley would need surgery after the season.
