Celtics guard Tony Allen returned to practice this afternoon and plans to test his injured right ankle at full speed tomorrow. Allen missed his 11th successive game when the Celtics defeated Dallas, 124-100, Sunday.
Brian Scalabrine sat out the 45-minute session but plans to be available when the Celtics play host to Sacramento Wednesday. Scalabrine was hit in the face while defending against Dirk Nowitzki early in the second half Sunday.
“Elbow hits chin — two shots,” Scalabrine said of Nowitzki drawing a shooting foul on the play.
