Celtics Vs. Cavaliers: Ray Allen Returns; Rondo Out; J.O. Questionable

BOSTON - Healthy is a word that has eluded the Boston Celtics for pretty much all of this season. The C's have been without four of their five starters for significant portions of the season. Thankfully, that changes tonight. At least, a little.

Ray Allen will make his return to the lineup after suffering from a jammed left ankle during the Celtics' 100-94 win over the Washington Wizards last Sunday. With Allen's return, that means the Celtics will have nearly all of their starters in the fold for this game, with Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Allen all healthy.

Jermaine O'Neal's status is still up in the air, as Celtics head coach Doc Rivers said that JO was a game-time decision for Boston. Rajon Rondo and Keon Dooling are the only Celtics ruled out for Sunday night's game.
