Marc Spears of The Boston Globe is reporting that Tony Allen is scheduled to have surgery on his left thumb tomorrow to repair torn ligaments.
Danny Ainge is hopeful Allen will be able to return by the start of the playoffs.
I will take a closer look tomorrow at how this injury effects the Celtics bench but it clearly is a big blow to the team’s depth in the backcourt over the rest of the regular season.
Hopefully Brian Scalabrine will be able to return from injury Thursday night in Utah to pitch in.
