Avery Bradley "hopes to play tonight"; his chances to shine alongside Rajon Rondo are running out

From the Celtics official twitter account:

I think the average response to this from Celtics fans would be "why bother?"  Get all the rest you need (and more), these games are anything but important.  But it goes to the point I made yesterday, that Bradley does not want to be considered injury prone.  Not to mention the fact that these last few opportunities to play in the backcourt with Rajon Rondo are a big deal for him trying to prove his value heading into free agency.  Remember he and Rondo have had very little time on the floor together this season (257 minutes and change, to be exact), and when they were reunited a week and a half ago Bradley scored 23 and 28 in back-to-back games.
