Allen says surgery may not be needed

On April 28, Ray Allen said he would have surgery following the conclusion of the Celtics playoff run for the bone spurs in his right ankle. At the time, Allen went as far to say that he would get the surgery “tomorrow” if it were not for the playoffs starting. But before Game 4 Sunday night, Allen rescinded his statements, instead hinting that the joints in his ankle causing the pain could heal the ailment naturally rendering surgery unnecessary.

“I know I said [I needed surgery] a couple weeks ago,” Allen said. “I believe that just from pictures. But based on how I feel now, and where my body is, I'll revisit getting X-Rays and a MRI when [the season] is over with and make an assessment then. If I continue this track I'm on, [I'm] getting better, then I don't need to have surgery, if it's not necessary.”

Allen returned to the lineup for the first time since April 10 during Game 3 Friday night. He...

Sox' hole deepens in 17-inning loss to O's

It was one of their most spirited efforts of the year, and yet it ended with the familiar whiff of defeat. The Red Sox suffered a 9-6 loss in 17 innings when Adam Jones smashed a three-run homer into the Monster seats against Red Sox outfielder-turned-pinch runner-turned reliever Darnell McDonald, in the game because his team had exhausted its bullpen.

The loss was the fifth straight for the Sox, who have now lost 10 of their last 11 home games. In losing all three contests to the Orioles, the Sox got swept at home by the O’s for the first time since 1994.

Though he was long gone by the time the game was decided, Clay Buchholz played an immense role in the shape of the game. He left the team in an early 5-0 hole, getting shelled for five runs on seven hits and four walks while punching out four in 3 2/3 innings, his shortest outing of the year.

Buchholz gave up three homers and has now allowed 10 in 32 2/3 innings this year, matching...

Horford active and will play for Hawks

After missing the final 55 regular season games and the first three games of the series against the Celtics, center Al Horford is active and making his return to action in Game 4 Sunday night. 

Horford, a native of the Dominican Republic and friend of Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, tore his left pectoral muscle in early January battling for a rebound with Indiana's Roy Hibbert. He was activated by Hawks coach Larry Drew and made available off the bench.

Horford's return, along with the return of starter Josh Smith, provides a front court challenge for the Celtics, who were outscored 28-6 in the paint in the first half Friday night.

Bradley, Allen to play, Smith returns

Despite dealing with serious discomfort on Saturday after his 37-minute effort Friday night in Game 3, Ray Allen announced he was feeling much better Sunday and will play in Game 4 against Atlanta. 

The Celtics got more good news when Avery Bradley took part in the shootaround Sunday morning and coach Doc Rivers announced an hour before tip-off that Bradley would start alongside Rajon Rondo in the backcourt. Bradley has been dealing with a sore left shoulder since blocking Dwyane Wade of the Heat on April 1 at the Garden. 

Allen scored 13 points in 37 minutes in his first game back Friday night but Rivers acknowledged afterward that Allen was tiring in overtime. Rivers also expressed concern before Sunday's game about Bradley's shoulder as the playoffs progress. 

"It is a concern going forward," Rivers said.  

Allen said he won't be thinking about his left ankle, should be called upon to step in again if...
