Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo and Mickael Pietrus will all miss tonight’s game against the Orlando Magic, according to Doc Rivers. I’m currently covering the game from the TD Garden for CLNS Radio, so go check out my injury story there.The biggest takeaway is that Rondo and Pietrus’ injuries don’t seem to concern Rivers (though they could both miss Friday’s contest with the Atlanta Hawks), but Allen’s progression (or lack thereof) is starting to become troublesome. (CLNS Radio)When asked whether Allen made any progress today, Rivers responded, “None at all. That’s becoming, obviously, troublesome for us. I don’t think he’ll play Friday, we’ve already pretty much determined that as well. After that, we have three or four days [of rest], so maybe by the Miami game we can get him back.”Rivers said he hasn’t thought far enough ahead to be concerned about whether Allen will return by the playoff opener.“No, but there’s just concern that the ankle is not responding, and, you know, we need

It’s been a disappointing season for Allen, because privately, he feels somewhat slighted by an organization for which he developed a loyalty and trust - and his demeanor has changed over the past few weeks.

Six days of rest may have been the charm for Ray Allen. The Celtics shooting guard, who missed the last four games with swelling in his right ankle, will be back in uniform Tuesday in New York, coach Doc Rivers told reporters Tuesday morning. Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe was the first to tweet the news. Allen has had nagging soreness in his ankle for the better part of a month...
Ray Allen has privately felt slighted by the Celtics over the past few weeks.
If the Boston Celtics don't win in Atlanta on Friday night, they'll probably have to open the playoffs there next weekend.

Telling a player he has been traded, only to call back a short time later to tell him he actually has not been traded after all, could be described a number of ways. Awkward. Uncomfortable. Possibly volatile. Doc Rivers had another word to describe a report that Ray Allen and Paul Pierce were nearly traded away in March, which Rivers confirmed prior to Wednesday's game against...
Okay so it’s Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo verse potential defensive player of the year New York Knicks Tyson Chandler. Who do you think would win in a one on one battle?
