Ray Allen once had surgery to repair ankles that were suffering from bone spurs. It was the summer before he was traded to the Boston Celtics actually. So that information alone should be enough to cause concern. However, the hope here is that the short term problem isn't as significant.
"When that bridge comes I’ll have to cross it," he said of his availability for the start of the postseason. "Right now, it’s hard to say. I just have to get up in the morning and pay attention to it. then come in here and get the treatment, move around on it, and see how it is." Allen said there are small spurs in the ankle the size of "grains of sand," but claimed the spurs are not as significant as the ones that necessitated surgery on both ankles in Seattle.
We just don't know how his ankle will respond, so all we can do is wait and hope for the best. Get well soon Ray.
