Celtics guard Ray Allen missed practice Saturday to be with his son, Walker, who was hospitalized, according to a team source. Allen's status for the Celtics' visit to Miami Sunday has not been determined.
Walker Allen, who suffers from diabetes, was hospitalized Friday. Ray Allen scored 20 points in the Celtics' 116-103 win over Toronto Friday night, leaving the game with 2:08 remaining to visit his son.
My prayers are with Ray and Shannon and Walker. Hopefully it is not serious and he will be on the trip with the team but family comes first. I know how hard it is to have a sick child. Nothing else matters at the time.
Marquis Daniels practiced with the first team and will probably get the nod to start if Ray can't make the trip. Those who have been calling for the team to trade Ray may get a glimpse of life without him.
