The Heat Get Bradley Back After Covid


Heat guard Avery Bradley says he's still working his way back after COVID-19.

“It’s been rough," Bradley said. "I had four days to try and get some work in, get in the gym, get some shots up. It felt great to be out there with my team and able to compete with those guys even though we came up short tonight. It just felt great to be back out there.”

The Heat have had eight players test positive and have gone 2-7 awaiting the return of All-Star Jimmy Butler.

“I felt good. Like I said, it’s been rough," Bradley said. "Trying to get myself back in the groove. Trying to get my legs back. (Wednesday), there were times I was extremely gassed, but for me I feel like it’s all effort. I just try to push through it every single possession. I know it’s going to take some time. For me, I’m just staying confident, playing as hard as I can. I feel like I can make up for all of my mistakes if I play hard every possession.”
