With a week left before facing his former team in the Miami Heat‘s season opener, guard Ray Allen said his surgically repaired ankle isn’t completely healed and could require treatment well into the season.
“I still deal with soreness in my ankle that I work through every day,” Allen said after the Heat’s practice Monday at AmericanAirlines Arena.
Allen, 37, revealed after Monday’s practice that he has been working through some discomfort in the ankle throughout the preseason, which continues with Tuesday’s game against the Charlotte Bobcats.
“I would like to be in better shape, better condition,” Allen said. “So, you know, I still have to make sure I don’t do too much pounding, because I’m a runner. On off days, I like to run. Right now, I’ve switched to the bicycle to stay off the pounding as much.”
Ray Allen’s signing in Miami is going to be an epic failure.
