Doc Rivers was thinking about how he’d rest his starters, but now he’s trying to figure out if he’ll have to sit Tony Allen down for tonight’s game against the Bulls. Allen, last seen leaving yesterday at the Moody Bible Institute’s Solheim Center goofing around with Paul Pierce, has the flu and may not be able to play tonight in front of the hometown crowd.
“He may,” Rivers said. “But right now, he’s got a 100-and-whatever fever so.”
Garnett, who sat out Saturday against the Bucks, will play tonight. How much he’ll play is still up in the air.
“I’m just going to watch,” Rivers said. “I have no thought going into the game for him. I’d like to play him a lot of minutes actually,because there’s a chance he may not play tomorrow. That’s something I will know before the game. If we play him short minutes in both games or large minutes in one. We haven’t talked about it long enough yet, but by game time I will know.”
