Lakers guard Avery Bradley is the latest NBA player placed into health and safety protocols on Thursday.
ANALYSIS: Bradley enters the NBA's health and safety protocols alongside Russell Westbrook today, and both did not join the Los Angeles Lakers on their flight out of Dallas. The Lakers are being ravaged by COVID-19 right now with all of the following players now sidelined: Westbrook, Bradley, Talen-Horton Tucker, Dwight Howard, Malik Monk.
Bradley has played an important role for the Lakers so far this season thanks to his two-versatility. Logging heavy minutes alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis, Bradley's absence will be a big piece of the puzzle now missing for a team trying to find some consistency after a rough start to the season.
During the 2021-22 campaign, Bradley has averaged 5.8 points while shooting 40% on threes in 21 starts for the Lakers.
