Allen To Be Back With Celtics In Time For Heat
Father first, professional basketball player second.
That’s what Ray Allen has been this weekend as Walker Allen, Ray’s two-year-old son, has been in the hospital with health issues revolving around his diabetes. Allen went to the hospital after the Celtics victory over the Toronto Raptors on Friday night and missed practice on Saturday to be with his ailing son. Allen’s status for Boston’s four-game road trip was up in the air before he rejoined his teammates on Saturday to fly down to Miami with the squad.
The Boston Celtics are set to square off against the Miami Heat on Sunday with the help of guard Ray Allen but rest assure his mind will be elsewhere.
Which is understandable and exactly where it should be.
