No Avery Bradley for Celtics anytime soon

Avery Bradley’s return from shoulder surgery is still on pace, but, according to Rivers, he’s six weeks or more away.

Said Bradley: “We’ve got a timetable, but at the end of the day it comes down to how I feel.”

He has still not been cleared for contact. . . .

The Celts and Wizards are in the midst of a home-and-home that will be completed Wednesday in Boston. The quick series brings together head coaching pals Rivers and Randy Wittman, who were once the Hawks’ backcourt.
