Avery Bradley dressed Saturday against the New York Knicks but sat the entire game, a victim of discomfort in his surgically repaired left ankle. It seems Bradley is digressing and Rivers said the rookie guard will sit until he is healthy.
“I don’t know if you looked (Friday) night, we put him in and within two minutes you could see (the ankle was bothering him),” Rivers said. “So that obviously hasn’t gone the way we would like, and I’m more upset for him because this is not the way you want to break in the NBA where you’re frustrated, you can’t play. You know we have to probably try something else because what we’re doing is clearly not working.”
Bradley has played 15:36 this preseason, going 2-for-7 from the field with one assist.
