Tony Allen to miss game against Bobcats

Boston Celtics [1] guard Tony Allen [2] will miss tonight’s game against the Charlotte Bobcats [3] due to a right ankle strain. According to the Boston Globe, Allen suffered the injury during Sunday’s loss to the New York Knicks [4]. He did not participate in today’s shootaround and could miss Wednesday night’s game against the Houston Rockets [5] as well.

The Celtics have had trouble keeping Allens in the lineup against the Bobcats. Last January, Tony replaced Ray Allen [6] (ankle) in the starting lineup in the Cs 95-83 loss [7] at the TD BankNorth Garden [8].
