WALTHAM (CBS) – Boston Celtics shooting guard Ray Allen was back on the floor for the team’s Wednesday morning shootaround, but it’s unclear if he’ll suit up against the Jazz Wednesday night.

Allen has missed the last three games with a left ankle injury, and will be a game time decision.

It will be a telling sign if Allen follows his normal routine; arriving several hours before tip-off to put up an assortment of jumpers and free throws. If Allen is on the court come 4pm, there is a good chance he suits up against the Jazz.

While Avery Bradley has done well filling in for Allen, the Celtics could definitely use another body at the two-guard position. Allen’s usual backup, Mickael Pietrus, is out indefinitely after suffering a concussion against the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday.

Allen is averaging 14.6 points per game while shooting 46-percent from the field, and from beyond the arc, in 41 games for Boston this season.
