I think there's some truth to the fact that if he keeps playing defense the way he plays (which we all love), then there's a good chance that he'll be more susceptible to getting hurt.  It's admirable to try to fight through every screen set by seven foot two-hundred fifty pound guys instead of going around some of them, but it's got to take a toll on the body.

At what point does he get the "injury-prone" label?

I would say he has already earned it

Can Avery catch a break and finish a season without getting sidelined again?

The injury situation with AB is the big reason why I won't be surprised if Ainge trades him.

I'm sure this has alot to do with staying healthy.   And they punish him more too,because he does this extreme pressure on the ball all the time. 

I sort sit there watching,  just can take it off my mind , and waiting for him to get injuried,  when he plays this hard , you know something bad is gonna happen.

This team just can't afford for this guy not to be on the floor. Their dependence on him is very troubling.

You're right...it is troubling.  To rely so heavily on this guy only spell trouble down the line if we don't change something.  Somebody call 911, it's emergency and we need a trade ASAP

I want to know when and how he injured the rib. Probably got smashed in the guts and no foul was called. Hope he heals quickly

It seems like a natural injury for him to get, given how close he plays his man and the fact that he tries to fight through every screen. Someone probably cleared him out with an elbow.

Maybe, seems like Rondo has been pretty healthy and why I always defend Rondo when people talk about "effort".

Earlier in his career Rondo was very dependable, but the last two seasons he's missed 25% of his games. 

This is despite the fact that it's those last two seasons where his effort level seems to have taken a drop moreso then ever.

I don't think Bradley is injury prone at all, at least not yet.  He's had two injuries (ankle and Shoulder), which were completely unrelated to each other, over three season.  It's just unfortuante that both were fairly significant injuries that have led him lose significant time.

Rondo has actually been injured quite frequently over the last couiple of seasons (usually several times per season), it's just that they are generally not major ones and he's usually lucky enough to either play through them or loose only 2 or 3 games.

Including this one Bradley has only had three career injuries (ankle, shoulder, ribs) but he's been unlucky enough that two of them have have been serious.  This one looks like a Rondo-type injury in that it doesn't sound major, and I'm guessing if he does loose time he will be back within 3 games or so.

What's trouble is (as mentioned by somebody else above) we cannot win games without him.  This hints partly at AB's value, but also hints partly at the wholes in our team.   The two thing Bradley brings are effort and perimeter defense, so we clearly need another 'energy' guy on the perimeter who can  bring those things.  As much as Lee seems to do that (and he's done it well lately) it obviously isn't enough because we can't win games when AB is out.

  Rondo's effort level has been fine when he's been healthy, and he didn't miss 25% of the last 2 years.

Yes I think so too Somehow , I feel like C's are defunct without him playing . No confidence in them.  Just more miserable play by JET.
