Celtics guard Avery Bradley sat out his second consecutive game with a strained right Achilles’ when his team lost to the Philadelphia 76ers, 111-102, at TD Garden Friday night.

Bradley also won’t play on Saturday when his team travels to Detroit to face the Pistons, according to coach Brad Stevens.

“For whatever reason it’s been aggravated and the doctor said [Thursday] that he has to sit two more days, which is frustrating because you want those guys to play together, for him and for all of us,” Stevens said before Friday’s game.
