Ray Allen's Ankle Watch

Marc Spears reports on Ray Allen's ankle:

Ray Allen has been questioned recently about his career-low shooting numbers. Maybe a sore right ankle that he has kept quiet about has something to do with it.

The Celtics guard missed his first game of the season last night against the Bucks with an ankle injury suffered Nov. 24 at Charlotte. He is expected to test his ankle at practice today and it's uncertain if he will play tomorrow afternoon at Toronto. While with Seattle, Allen missed nine games last season with a right foot injury.

"I don't want to take a chance," coach Doc Rivers said before the Celtics' 104-82 victory over Milwaukee. "He wants to play. We have a lot of games left.

"My recommendation was to sit him [last night] and maybe even [tomorrow]. And then we have two days off after that and we'll go from there."
