It's a degree less than KG in 2009. Garnett was announced out for the rest of the season, the day after the regular season ended. This time around Ray has bone spurs much like KG in 2009. But they're not the same. Ray's chances of playing are higher than what KG had in 2009. Many had hope that KG might play. Media reports had KG coming back in each game seven that the Celtics faced in 2009. Garnett finally got surgery after the Celtics lost in- game seven against the Magic in the second round. Now, news has broken that Ray will need surgery at the end of the season. Is Ray done? Has the team made up their mind? He will give it a try at some point. If he holds up at all, who knows.

Scott Souza @scott_souza #Celtics coach Doc Rivers on Ray Allen: He's still not moving well.
Scott Souza @scott_souza #Celtics coach Doc Rivers: Ray Allen will do very little in practice today, will try to play Game 1. But sounds pessimistic.
Scott Souza @scott_souza #Celtics guard Ray Allen says he will try to do a little in practice today after taking another cortisone shot this week.
I think we need to get Ray out of our minds for the title run. So sad. With the history of injuries during this era. My expections are low on a return. I'm an optimistic fan, and when it comes to injuries like this for the Celtics. I am not optimistic for a return.
