Milton Bradley Gets Injured From Time to Time

Analysis and Commentary

We’ve all heard it about Milton Bradley: He’s an injury waiting to happen. Maybe that’s true.

Thanks to our good friend, Andy, at Sons of Ivy, here’s a complete year-by-year breakdown of his injuries and time missed (note this is more accurate than the previous list that had been floating around the Cublogoverse, which doubled and sometimes quadrupled his injuries).

See it after the jump.


Right Quad – 4 games
Eye Contusion – 29 games
Appendicitis – 16 games


Hamstring – 13 games
Back – 46 games


Ankle – 5 games
Hamstring – 1 game


Finger – 47 games
Patella Tendon – 38 games


Right Knee – 36 games
Shoulder – 20 games
Ankle – 1 game


Hamstring – 39 games
Calf – 16 games
Oblique – 8 games
Hamstring – 4 games
Oblique – 12 games
ACL – 22 games



Hamstring – 1 game
Right Shoulder – 2 games
Dizziness – 1 game
Quad – 3 games
Left Knee – 1 game
Quad – 10 games
Illness – 2 games
Wrist – 4 games

So…. yeah. That’s a lot. And the simultaneously alarming and relieving thing about it is that it is a myriad of injuries. It’s not as if he has chronic back problems (that’s good), but damn he’s fragile (that’s bad).
