QUINCY — Speaking prior to his team’s kickoff golf tournament, Celtics‘ general manager Danny Ainge said that the team’s No. 1 pick, guard Avery Bradley, will miss the beginning of training camp, which begins Monday. Ainge surmised that Bradley — who underwent surgery on left ankle in the offseason — is still “a couple of weeks away, at least.”
The GM added, “We’re certainly not going to rush him.” The Celtics were aware of the ankle injury prior to drafting Bradley, who suffered the ailment while going through a pre-draft workout with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
