With Ray Allen's injury-related struggles mounting, Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers told ESPN Boston's Jackie MacMullan that he will consider resting the guard for a game in the Eastern Conference Finals.
"It's a tough call with him," Rivers said Tuesday afternoon. "We're trying to figure out a different minute rotation for him, maybe that will help him. We're even considering sitting him for a game, getting him a longer rest and then playing him, and then sitting him for a game. We don't know what the right thing is."
Allen played 39 minutes during Monday night's Game 1 loss, but was largely ineffective much as he has been throughout Boston's postseason run. He finished the night 1-for-7 shooting from the floor for a total of six points.
