The Los Angeles Lakers will welcome guard Avery Bradley back to the lineup after a 13-game absence with a hairline fracture in his right leg. He’ll be on a 20-minute restriction when he Lakers begin a five-game road trip tonight, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Bradley initially suffered the injury in a game in early November but continued to play on the sore leg until a precautionary MRI revealed the small fracture. He hasn’t seen action since Nov. 13.

The 29-year-old will look to ease back into the rotation of a team that’s managed to dominate despite his absence. In the 10 games that he played for the Lakers in October and November, Bradley averaged 9.6 points per contest.
