Grumpy old man Ray Allen: take two. The Celtics are struggling. Their superstars are aging. They have won only seven games so far this season, and three of them have come against one of the worst teams in the NBA. No matter how much the team struggles, Allen has always been a veteran leader and rarely has anything negative to say. This season, he has flashed signs of frustration a couple of times. On Sunday night during their third win of the season over the Wizards, Allen stepped on Washington forward Jan Vesely’s foot while attempting to come around a screen. It caused him to fall to the floor, and Allen was not happy about the play after the game. “It was the way (Vesely) was setting screens,” Allen said according to the Washington Post. “He was stepping out and extending and every time I tried go around it, his foot was in the way so it just seemed like a train wreck waiting to happen,” Allen said. “That’s always a lesson for me when I try to play basketball with guys during t...

Ray Allen Left Off Team Flight Nursing Ankle-Wife Expecting Child

Ray Allen was left behind as the Celtics traveled to Orlando to face the Magic this Thursday as he continues to nurse his injured ankle. At the moment, with two days left until gameday, it is unclear as to whether the decision to leave Ray Allen behind was to allow Allen to receive more treatment, [...]

Allen Says Vesely Doesn't Know How To Play

It’s been a tough year for the Boston Celtics. They’re sitting at 7-9 right now and with their aging superstars, there’s been a lot of talk about blowing up the whole team and starting over. Now they’re dealing with some injury problems as well. Point guard Rajon Rondo has missed the last three games with a sprained wrist, and guard Ray Allen is nursing a jammed ankle. Allen...

Allen nursing an ankle injury

WASHINGTON - The good news for the Celtics after yesterday’s 100-94 win over the Wizards was that Ray Allen sported an immaculately shined wingtip shoe on his left foot instead of a walking boot.

Celtics Live Blog: Ray Allen Stays Home While C's Travel to Orlando for Matchup With Magic

8:30 a.m.: Missing five players due to injuries didn't hurt the Celtics on Monday, when they trounced the Magic by 31 points on the TD Garden parquet. Playing the third game of a four-game, five-night stretch, the Magic might be expected to be a little sluggish. Then again, Dwight Howard and company will probably have extra motivation due to Monday's embarrassing display...

Celtics minus Allen and Rondo; 3 bench players

The Boston Celtics will be without starters Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo and three bench players, severely depleting their roster for Monday night's game against the Orlando Magic. Boston coach Doc Rivers delivered the news about an hour before the game. Allen jammed his left ankle in the second quarter of Sunday's win at Washington and didn't return. Starting point guard...

Shorthanded Boston Celtics Trick Orlando Magic, Win 87-56

Going into tonight’s game between the Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic at the TD Garden, the odds were not in favor of the Celtics. The Magic came into the game with a record of 11-4, while the Celtics were at a disappointing 6-9. Add to that the news before the game that Ray Allen, Rajon [...]

Ray Allen not with the Celtics as they leave for Orlando

This shouldn't come as a huge surprise as the Celtics will make sure that Ray's as close to 100 percent as possible before bringing him back. We knew going into the season that, for the vast majority of the C's, it will take a little longer for them to recover from these types of bumps and bruises. In addition, A. Sherrod Blakely informed us that Ray and his wife are...

Celtics without Allen, Rondo, 3 reserves (AP)

The Boston Celtics will be without starters Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo and three bench players, severely depleting their roster for Monday night's game against the Orlando Magic. Boston coach Doc Rivers delivered the news about an hour before the game. Allen jammed his left ankle in the second quarter of Sunday's win at Washington and didn't return.

Being out of shape inexcusable, but it’s Celtics’ best hope

The lockout is supposed to hunt down veterans like Shawn Kemp — those older players who like to dabble in cocaine, alcohol, out-of-wedlock children and Taco Bell’s famed Fourth Meal — rather than championship-tested veterans known for their maniacal workout sessions running in the sands of Malibu Beach. Knowing the lockout would end at some point, understanding that Boston’s...

Various trade purposals

Beasley for McGee Any chance we could get in on a Paul Pierce or Ray Allen deal? Supposedly Ainge is interested in creating cap space to retool next season. Randolph, Pekovic, Johnson, Malcolm Lee. I'm curious to see what happens at the trade deadline this year. I feels like their could be quite a bit of movement with Dwight, Celtics, Rockets, whoever.

Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo won't play tonight; Pietrus returns to lineup

No Rajon Rondo means that Avery Bradley should get the start at point guard again tonight. Jameer Nelson is probably crying in his living room as we speak. Bradley better keep his head on a swivel for a rock solid screen from Dwight Howard if he decides to do the personal full-court press again.

End of an Era?

The Boston Celtics returned to their glory days right after trading for Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett. Adding two future Hall of Famers to their in-house future Hall of Famer, Paul Pierce, helped them reach the Finals twice and win one championship.
