Boston Celtics Practice Notes for 2/8/14: Bradley questionable vs. Mavs, along with Rondo

As reported earlier, Rondo is questionable for the Mavs game Sunday. Bradley as well. Here are some quotes from ESPN Boston.

"Other than if you had to get taped for some reason, [Saturday] is an untaped kind of light workout, so I think he'll see how he feels and we'll go from there," Stevens said of Bradley. "I think he feels a little bit better this morning than he did [Friday]. Again, we'll kind of see how it goes. He'll shoot. He'll go through all the light stuff early."

Bradley's status for Sunday's game will be re-evaluated before the team engages in a game-day shootaround at TD Garden.

Stevens applauded the way his players responded without the starting backcourt of Bradley and Rajon Rondo against the Kings, but noted that's what he expects from them.

"I hope you never hear [Boston lean on missing bodies] from the excuse standpoint," said Stevens. "Everybody here is paid to be a professional. Everybody here is paid to play basketball. And when somebody's not available, you step up and you fill that void. The big football term is, 'Next man up.' I believe in that. But at the same time, it is difficult when you don't have everybody available, and it is great that guys did step in, and all 10 guys that were available played and played pretty well."
