Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley, sidelined since mid-May with shoulder issues that required a pair of offseason surgeries, engaged in contact activities for the first time during the team's off-day workout on Monday in Chicago, according to the team. He participated in the full 90-minute session.

Bradley's breakout 2011-12 season ended with a final shoulder dislocation in Game 4 of an Eastern Conference semifinals series against the Philadelphia 76ers. Bradley had already been dealing with issues in both shoulders, including multiple dislocations of the left. He underwent surgery on that shoulder in late May, then had a second procedure to clean up areas of his right shoulder in July.

Bradley has been rehabbing with a mid-December return to practice in mind. He has hesitated to put a timeline on a return to game action, stressing he'll simply take it day by day once he resumes contact activities.

Who does he replace in the rotation? They got enough guards with Rondo, Lee, Terry, and Barbosa

Barbosa will probably get less minutes for the time being. I could see Danny trading Lee or Lee/Bass for a big at the deadline.

Has C.Lee been pretty dissapointing this year? Every Bulls fan wanted him during the summer.

Rondo - Bradley - Pierce - Bass - KG as the starters and an impressive bench with Terry - Lee - Green - Sullinger - Wilcox. I like it. His return balances things out.

Barbosa is a good player to have for a change of pace. For defensive reasons alone, I could see Doc limiting his minutes, but not too much. Bradley is going to have to ease his way back in the swing of things.

Kids a real stud. I like him a lot as a player.
