The good news? Ray is going to play. The less good news? Avery Bradley's status is still unknown:
Celtics guard Avery Bradley (dislocated left shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Sunday night's Game 4 against the Atlanta Hawks, while Ray Allen (ankle) is expected to play, team officials confirmed after Boston's morning shootaround on Sunday at HealthPoint.
Bradley and Allen participated in the entirety of Sunday's hour-long session, along with the rest of the roster, which consisted primarily of half-court sets and minimal contact and running.
Meanwhile, it looks like Josh Smith is going to play:
Smith's explosiveness is expected to be limited, so let's hope he turns into more of a jump shooter. Playing below the rim definitely isn't one of Smith's strengths; he's shooting jumpers at 32.7%.
