Celtics' Bradley likely out for Game 6

The Boston Celtics will likely be without guard Avery Bradley for Wednesday's potential conference semifinal series- clinching game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Bradley is still recovering from a shoulder injury and also missed Boston's 101-85 win in Game 5 on Monday.

"I'm just trying to get them stronger, but as of today I'm not going to be playing tonight," Bradley was quoted as saying Wednesday. "I'm frustrated ... day by day right now."

Bradley, who started 28 games in the regular season, is averaging 6.7 points and 2.0 rebounds in 10 playoff starts. He was replaced by Ray Allen in the starting lineup in Game 5.
