Tony Allen Questionable, No Restrictions for KG

Allen, entering his 6th season with Boston, was out of commission for
13 weeks this summer with a torn tendon in his ankle. His status for
the preseason is questionable. Allen only appeared in 42 games for the
Celtics in the 2008/09 season.

Tony Allen missed 13 weeks this summer with a torn tendon? Raise your hand if you knew about this. We knew he had ankle surgery back in early June, but it's late September. This guy can't catch a break.

According to the Globe's Gary Dzen, Doc Rivers says there will be "No restrictions on any player,"

"I think with Kevin and [Kendrick Perkins] and [Tony Allen] and all
of them, we'll just get to camp and see how they go," said Rivers.
"Right now there are no medical restrictions on any player, and that's
good."

Rivers said the team would practice just once a day (they did some
two-a-days last year), and that Garnett would take place in most
drills. The coach did say he would try to convince Garnett to sit some
drills out.

"That's going to be a pain in the butt," Rivers said of holding
Garnett out. "Kevin likes to go 1,000 miles an hour. Again, for me, it
will all be in what I see."

More to come….

    if the guy is injured, it just makes it that much harder to trade him for something useful, like new scented loofahs for the team showers.
