Adam Himmelsbach: Avery Bradley wasn't released from the hospital this morning, I'm told, so safe to say his status for tomorrow is questionable at best.

There is still an opportunity to win this series but the Celtics have to use their two days off to reflect on their recent slow starts. And they also likely have to move on without Avery Bradley, who suffered a right hamstring strain and will have an MRI on Sunday, a test that will likely reveal a significant injury.
A. Sherrod Blakely: Avery Bradley in serious pain. Could not reach down and pull his pants up w/o assistance.. VERY questionable for game 2. #Celticstalk
Bradley said he will go for “a test” Sunday morning. He also anticipated having treatment through the night. He left the locker room using one blue crutch to walk with. Game 2 is Tuesday at Philips Arena.
“I just want to get treatment and take it day by day and hopefully I can be back by next game,” Bradley said. “I’m not worried at all, I have faith, I know my teammates and people are praying for me.” Asked if he was concerned he could be lost for the series, Bradley said, “I’m taking it day by day. I don’t really know. Could be, but I’m hoping it’s not.”
Brian Robb: Bradley confirms he injured hamstring while attempting to block Teague. "It felt weird."
Brian Robb: Bradley landed on Teague's foot while defending Teague before Crowder's 3. Limped down floor and gave foul since he couldn't move on D.

Vasilije Micic staying in Europe?

Ergin Ataman: “Like Messi’s transfer to France, like Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer to different teams. We are doing everything we can to prevent this from happening. Our relations with Larkin as a club are very good. I think he likes the club and Istanbul very much, but ultimately the decision will be made by the player himself. As for Vasilije Micic’s situation, I think his contract has an NBA exit until July 20. Micic can’t play for any other club in Europe for 3 years, we signed the contract last season. He might consider it if he gets a big offer from the NBA. I think Micic enjoyed playing in Europe. The time will tell. Frankly, I think Micic will continue with us. I think he will be with us next season as well. There is not much we can do about it. I mean, he has a very good contract, but if there is a big offer from the NBA, we will try to fill his place. We want to continue with both players.”
This rumor is part of a storyline: 5 more rumors
Ergin Ataman was a guest on Turkish television and, among other things, he talked about whether Shane Larkin and Vasilije Micic will continue with the team, the potential addition of Will Clyburn, as well as if this Efes squad could be considered the best in Euroleague history. “Shane Larkin is very happy here. Larkin reached the peak of his career in Anadolu Efes, becoming one of the 2 to 3 best players in Europe, sometimes even the best. He broke the record in Europe. Won two championships in a row. The family atmosphere in Anadolu Efes must have affected him as well, but after all, he is a professional. Of course, there are serious offers for him. After all, free agents in Europe are clear today. Of course, we really want Larkin to continue with us. Let’s hope this will work out in a positive way, but if it doesn’t, there may be some flash transfers as a result,” he said and compared it to stellar transfers in soccer.
