No TA quite yet

After indicating that guard Tony Allen [1] could be ready to face the Philadelphia 76ers [2], head coach Doc Rivers [3] said on Wednesday that his defensive specialist still wasn’t quite ready to make his 2009 debut after injuring his left ankle in the preseason.

“I don’t have a clue when,” Rivers said. ‘No relapse. I really don’t Just not ready to play yet. It’s getting closer.”

Allen played in just one preseason game – on Oct. 9 against the Knicks – and hasn’t played in game action since.
