Tony Allen out Tony Allen missed last night's game against Indiana with a sprained right ankle he suffered against Orlando in the second quarter Monday. While he hopes to play tomorrow against Portland, coach Doc Rivers was more hopeful for Sunday at Indiana. Allen, who is averaging 8.8 points, expects to have an MRI. "It is just sore," he said. "Basically, I should have stayed out in that game when we played Orlando. It tightened up when I got it taped and came back and I fought through it. I think I put a lot more pressure on it than was already on it from the twist. Hopefully, I can get some treatment and be ready for Friday's game."Continued... Celtics president Danny Ainge said he wasn't tempted to recall J.R. Giddens or Bill Walker from Utah of the NBA Development League to replace Allen. Through three games, Giddens was averaging 23.3 points. 7.7 rebounds, 2 steals, and 3 blocks for the Flash, while Walker was averaging 22 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 2 steals. "I don't want to disrupt from what they're doing," said Ainge. "They're benefiting from being down there." Out of mind Kevin Garnett spoke briefly about the circus surrounding suspended Knicks guard Stephon Marbury, who is seeking a buyout of the final year of his contract and has been banished from the team. Garnett and Marbury were teammates in Minnesota from 1996-99. "We're not close at all, not really as close as we used to be," Garnett said. "I haven't really been following [the Marbury situation]. I watch it here and there when I go through the locker room when it's on TV. I hear about it. It's unfortunate. But I haven't been following it or had an assessment of it." Rooting for Rogers Pacers coach Jim O'Brien was saddened by the news that ex-Celtic Rodney Rogers was reportedly partially paralyzed in a recent all-terrain vehicle accident. O'Brien coached Rogers in Boston during the 2001-02 season. "He's one of the finest people I've ever coached in the NBA," O'Brien said. "I spent a lot of time with Rodney out in Phoenix during the summer when we were trying to sign him. A great family and a man of immense faith. He certainly is going to need that family and great faith to get through this." --◆ From: 126.96.36.199
