The Boston Celtics will likely be one player short of the Big Three on Thursday when they travel to Orlando. After tweaking his left ankle in the second quarter against the Washington Wizards on Sunday, Ray Allen appeared to still be in some pain and did not make the trip to Orlando, ESPN reports. Allen is averaging 14.9 points this season while shooting 56 percent from beyond the arc. Allen's wife, Shannon, is pregnant and is due soon, according to the report. If the Celtics are lucky, they will see the return of Rajon Rondo, Keyon Dooling and Mickael Pietrus...

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...
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, [...]
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.

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...
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.
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 [...]
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...
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...
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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
But in life all good things must come to an end and in sports that process is accelerated.
