Ray Allen Injury Update: Celtics Guard Is Out Against Hawks On Wednesday

The Boston Celtics are going to be without shooting guard Ray Allen on Wednesday night against the Atlanta Hawks due to his injured ankle swelling up (via Gethin Coolbaugh's Twitter).

Allen will be missing his seventh game out of the last 12 games the C's have played. So once again, Avery Bradley will start in place of Allen.

Bradley has averaged 30.4 minutes, 12.2 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game during the past five games

In other injury news, forward Mickael Pietrus will be available to play for Boston tonight. Pietrus has been battling a concussion. In 37 games this season, he averages 6.8 points and 2.9 rebounds per game in 21.3 minutes per game.
