Ray Allen Says Ankle Markedly Improved
The ankle injury that hobbled him for weeks, (Ray) Allen said, isn’t nearly as bothersome anymore.
“Just going into the game, starting the game, having my legs underneath me is for me it’s a huge deal now,” said Allen, who had 16 points on 6-for-16 shooting from the field. “How I feel now is a lot different from how I start the game.”
But it has improved to the point where it’s not a question as to whether he’ll play, but how long will (coach Doc) Rivers stick with him and how effective will he be.
“It just progressively got better over time,” Allen said. “We’ll see how I deal with it once the season is over.”
