The biggest Ray Allen news continue to be the rumors that will constantly swirl around him as the trading deadline draws near. But let’s not forget, Allen was a late scratch the other night against New Orleans, when he came down with a case of back spasms prior to the game.
Actually, Allen says, the spasms started even before that.
“It had been bothering me for two days leading up to that,’’ Allen said. “[Monday] we practiced halfway and then I sat down after a while. I just felt like my muscle was twisted and it kind of had me bent over a little bit.
“I still feel it a little bit. The last three or four days sleeping was uncomfortable. Sat in the hot tub a lot.’’
Despite not being 100%, Allen said he’s doing “better than he was four days ago.”
Is anybody on the Celtics ever going to be 100%?
