The Boston Celtics announced today that guard Tony Allen had successful anterior cruciate ligament reconstructive surgery along with cartilage repair to his left knee. The surgery was performed this morning at New England Baptist Hospital by Celtics Team Physician, Dr. Brian McKeon and assisted by Dr. Paul Weitzel. Allen is out indefinitely with no timetable set for his return.
Now comes the tough road back through rehab. I know Powe will be an inspiration for him, having fought back through 2 ACL tears and rehabs. We all wish Tony a quick recovery and hope to see him in training camp next season.
