No Ray Allen vs. Sixers tonight


The Boston Celtics will be without Ray Allen tonight against the 76ers.

Allen was suspended by the NBA for one game without pay for elbowing Cleveland Cavaliers forward
Anderson Varejao in the groin Sunday.

The incident occurred with 5:05 remaining in the third quarter of the Celtics' 107-76 loss.

Boston also will be without Kevin Garnett, who has been banged up and likely out until the playoffs.

Meanwhile, the Sixers will have Thaddeus Young back in the lineup. Click here for our earlier report
