Celtics' Allen returns for Game 3

Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen is slated to return for the team's Game 3 Eastern Conference quarterfinal matchup against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday.

Allen hasn't played since an April 10th matchup with the Miami Heat, missing 11 consecutive games with a sore right ankle.

The 10-time All-Star and the NBA's all-time leader in three-point makes averaged 14.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 46 games during the regular season.

The Celtics are currently knotted at a game apiece in their best-of-seven series with the Hawks.
