Celtics' Avery Bradley (Shoulders) Out Against Sixers In Game 5

Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley has suffered injuries to both his shoulders and will not play tonight in Game 5 against the Philadelphia 76ers, coach Doc Rivers has announced.

In his place, the C's will start 16-year veteran Ray Allen, who's been coming off the bench in recent weeks.

"It's pretty bad," Rivers said of Bradley's injury. "He'll still play games, I think, but this is probably how it's going to be from this point on -- I think he'll play a game, then miss a couple, then play a game. That's basically the way it'll be."

Bradley was the Celtics' No. 19 overall pick in the 2010 draft, out of Texas; he broke into the starting five in March and quickly developed a reputation as one of the league's best perimeter defenders.

Without Bradley, the Celtics look to protect their home floor in a pivotal Game 5 against the Sixers, with the series tied 2-2.
