Ray Allen will return to the Boston Celtics lineup Tuesday night and come off the bench against the New York Knicks.
Boston Celtics shooting guard Ray Allen will return to the lineup Tuesday night against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden after missing the last four games with a sore right ankle.
Doc Rivers said Allen, who has missed 10 of Boston's past 15 outings, will have no restrictions and that swelling has disappeared from the sharp-shooter's ankle.
"It just swelled on me after the Miami game, and that next day it just blew up; ain't no rhyme or reason," Allen said. "I have to pay more attention to it. I can't go off into the world thinking everything is hunky dory. I have to stay on top of it. With the schedule, I have to attack it with more vengeance and not just let it go. Now it's just making sure I take every precaution moving forward."
