Explaining Avery Bradley’s leg injury

Lakers guard Avery Bradley has been diagnosed with a “hairline fracture of the fibular head on his right leg” that came up on a pre-cautionary MRI after Bradley continued to complain of persistent discomfort and tenderness stemming from the injury he suffered during the game against the San Antonio Spurs Nov. 3. Bradley was kicked in the right knee area by Spurs guard Dejounte Murray and subsequently missed one game with a “leg contusion” before returning, and then having the subsequent MRI that the Lakers say will lead to Bradley missing at least a week or two.
