Johnny Drama would love to have Ray Allen’s ginormous calves, but moving around with boulders on the back of your leg isn’t always good.
Allen blames his Plymouth Rock-sized calves for his recent health issues, telling CSNNE, “They’re always like the bane of my pain, of my existence, because I always feel tightness in there. When they do get tight, it keeps my ankles from moving.”
The good news is that Allen will return to the Celtics lineup tonight against the Knicks and shouldn’t have any limitations. An MRI revealed no structural damage and the swelling has disappeared. (Boston Herald)
“I ask what I need to know, and he’s ready to play,” Rivers said before shootaround at Madison Square Garden a short time ago. “There’s no minute restriction or anything. The swelling’s gone and he’s ready to play.”
“It just swelled on me,” he said. “After the Miami game (on April 10) it just blew up. There’s really no rhyme or reason.”
