Lakers’ Avery Bradley has hairline fracture in right leg

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Lakers guard Avery Bradley has a hairline fracture in his right leg, the team announced Friday.

He will be reevaluated in one to two weeks, according to the Lakers.

Bradley injured his leg during a collision with Dejounte Murray of the San Antonio Spurs on Nov. 3. After missing one game — the Lakers’ comeback victory in Chicago — he returned to the lineup and played in L.A.’s last four games.

Bradley’s hairline fracture is on the fibular head of his right leg, which is a non-weight-bearing bone, according to the team. The injury was discovered after a MRI on Thursday night.

Initial X-rays on the leg came back negative, but since the injury continued to bother Bradley, the team followed up with a MRI.

Bradley signed a two-year, $9.7 million deal with L.A. in the offseason. In 10 games with the Lakers, all of them starts, he is averaging 9.6 points on 48.8% shooting, 3.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.0 steals.
