Ray Allen Injury Update: Celtics Guard Will Undergo Ankle Surgery Wednesday

Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen will undergo surgery Wednesday to remove bone spurs in his injured ankle. Allen called the procedure his "first priority" after the Celtics were eliminated in Game 7 of the 2012 NBA Eastern Conference Finals by the Miami Heat.

Allen was hobbled throughout the 2012 NBA Playoffs because of his ankles. He was able to gut out the pain and turn in some strong performances late in the Heat series. There were times, especially early in the series, where the future hall of fame was clearly well below 100 percent, however.

Allen just finished up the second year of his two-year, $20 million contract.
