I’ve started to become a little worried by the ankle injury that won’t go away, but Doc Rivers assures us Ray Allen’s ankle will be okay, even though the sharp-shooter will miss at least the next two games. (Boston Globe)
“It’s not that serious, it’s swelling,” Rivers said of Allen’s ankle injury. “I’m concerned when anybody’s injured. It’s not a serious injury, that’s what the doctors keep saying, so that makes me feel better about it.”
It’s probably best that Allen isn’t playing in Toronto, anyway. That 3-d logo on the baseline looks like it could come to life at any time and destroy ankles, knees and even lives. When the Celtics met Toronto in the preseason, I was 100% sure one of the Celtics was going to step on the logo and suffer a career-ending injury. I’m not quite sure why the Raptors wanted to scare every spectator who didn’t know that “THAT CRAZY THING THAT LOOKS LIKE IT’S GOING TO KILL ONE OF THE PLAYERS!!!” is actually just paint, but it’s kind of, somewhat, almost, pretty cool, once you get over the debilitating fear.
