Tony Allen Injured - Updated

New, comments

UPDATE:

Tony Allen didn’t accompany the team to New Orleans today after injuring his left thumb in practice, but contrary to a team report that X-rays taken on the thumb were negative, a Celtics source said today that the guard has actually suffered torn ligaments.

It was unclear how much time he would miss in the event of a ligaments tear.

Allen plans to rejoin the team next Tuesday in Utah following the all-star break, when he is scheduled to meet with team physician Dr. Brian McKeon. Until then, he has been ordered to keep the thumb wrapped and stabilized.
