Welcome to TD Garden

The Celtics’ health news is a little better as Ray Allen will return to the lineup after missing three games with a jammed left ankle. Allen said he wasn’t feeling pain in the ankle anymore and it was more weakness, meaning it was time to give it a go.

*Rajon Rondo is out but may return to the lineup Tuesday against Cleveland. Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he is getting close, but he won’t play tonight.

*Keyon Dooling said his pain is more in the oblique area and it’s hard to sleep. He likely won’t be back soon.
