The Boston Celtics dropped to last place in the Atlantic Division after losing to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday by the score of 95-94. The loss was the Celtics' 4th in a row and their 33rd of the season in 48 games. The Celtics did receive some good news on the injury front, as shooting guard Avery Bradley, who has missed the last five games with an ankle injury, could be returning soon.

As reported by Jay King at, Bradley sprained his ankle against the Miami Heat on January 21.  He played only seven minutes and scored three points in that game. 

Rajon Rondo rested versus the 76ers, so Phil Pressey was the only guard in the starting lineup.  Should Bradley return to the lineup Sunday against the Orlando Magic, expect Rondo and Jerryd Bayless to get the majority of the minutes with Bradley in the back court. That would mean that Pressey would be the odd man out of the rotation.

Bradley is in his fourth season out of Texas. He's enjoying his best season with an average of 14.5 points and 4.1 rebounds per game.  Bradley appeared in 50 games last season and average 9.2 points and 2.2 rebounds per game.
