According to Brad Stevens, Avery Bradley (Achilles) is likely out vs. the Blazers on Saturday.
Marcus Smart, Terry Rozier and Jaylen Brown have all seen expanded roles with Bradley on the sidelines. Smart is the only one making a fantasy impact and is actually producing top-60 value in standard leagues over the last two weeks. Even with a putrid 35.3 field goal percentage, Smart is maintaining solid value with 10.9 points, 3.6 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 2.1 steals, 1.0 blocks, 1.3 treys and a 90.5 free throw percentage over his last seven games. He is a must own player in standard leagues at this point.
Avery Bradley is out Saturday vs. Blazers. Brad: "The Achilles is structurally fine, but he has a lot of soreness around it."
