Celtics Vs. Cavaliers: Ray Allen Returns; Rondo Out; J.O. Questionable

Ray Allen will make his return to the lineup after suffering from a jammed left ankle during the Celtics' 100-94 win over the Washington Wizards last Sunday. With Allen's return, that means the Celtics will have nearly all of their starters in the fold for this game, with Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Allen all healthy.

Jermaine O'Neal's status is still up in the air, as Celtics head coach Doc Rivers said that JO was a game-time decision for Boston. Rajon Rondo and Keon Dooling are the only Celtics ruled out for Sunday night's game.
