Avery Bradley has entered the Health and Safety protocols and could miss several games for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The veteran guard becomes the fifth Lakers player to enter the protocols. Aside from Avery Bradley, Talen Horton-Tucker, Russell Westbrook, Malik Monk and Dwight Howard are in the protocols, too.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Lakers will undergo new tests to find out if more players will enter the protocols. The multiple time champions (16-13) will face the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday.
