PHILADELPHIA, May 23 (UPI) -- Boston Celtics guard Avery Bradley, who is nursing a shoulder injury, may miss Wednesday night's Game 6 of the NBA playoffs against the 76ers.

Bradley sat out Game 5 Monday when Boston hammered Philadelphia 101-85 to take 3-2 game lead in the best-of-seven semi-final series.

Bradley, who is averaging 6.7 points and 2 rebounds in 10 playoff starts, was replaced by veteran Ray Allen in Game 5.

"I'm just trying to get them stronger, but as of today I'm not going to be playing tonight," Bradley said Wednesday. "I'm frustrated … day by day right now."
