The Boston Celtics received some good news Saturday morning, as injured guard Ray Allen was able to take part in the team's morning shoot-around, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England.
Allen has been nursing a sore right ankle, but as Blakely's report indicates, all signs are pointing to Ray being able to play at least some in Saturday night's series opener against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Allen is averaging 11.8 ppg and two assists per game through four games in the 2012 playoffs, while logging an average of 28 minutes per game.
