Ray Allen Injury Update: Veteran Celtics Guard A Game-Time Decision For Game 3

Veteran Celtics guard Ray Allen may be able to make his 2012 NBA Playoffs debut Friday night in Game 3.

Allen has missed the first two games of the Hawks/Celtics series after missing the last nine games of the regular season while dealing with a right ankle injury. The series is tied at one game apiece and has headed to Boston. The availability of Allen could be more good news for the Celitcs, who know the Hawks will be without Josh Smith for Game 3.

Allen fully participated in Thursday's practice and Friday's shootaround. This season, he has averaged 14.2 points and 3.1 rebounds 2.4 assists.
