Bradley, 27, joined the Clippers in January as part of the Blake Griffin trade with the Detroit Pistons.

Los Angeles Clippers guard Avery Bradley is expected to miss six to eight weeks after undergoing surgery to fix adductor and rectus abdominus muscles on Tuesday, the team announced.

On Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported Bradley underwent surgery to fix his adductor and rectus abdominis muscles. Since the trade, the Pistons have gone 7-10 while the Clippers have compiled a record of 11-5, one loss being the game immediately after the trade when LA didn't have any of the three incoming players available yet. However, he hasn't had much of a chance to show those skills in Los Angeles. The guard struggled to practice after the All-Star break, at which point surgery became a viable option.

The last update we got was coach Doc Rivers saying that Bradley wasn't close to a return.

Bradley averaged 9.2 points and 3.7 rebounds in his time with Los Angeles this year.

Bradley is an unrestricted free agent this summer, so these injury issues won't help his value on the open market in a down season.
