MILWAUKEE (AP) -Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen sat out Saturday night's game in Milwaukee, one night after hurting his left heel.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Allen could play again as early as Monday's game at San Antonio.
``It's nothing serious,'' Rivers said. ``It's just a bruise in his heel, and we want it to go away. So the best way is rest.''
Allen was injured when he slipped and fell in the first quarter of Friday night's home loss to Utah and did not return. He traveled with the team to Milwaukee.
Backup guard Tony Allen started in Allen's place against the Bucks, who were without center Andrew Bogut (thigh bruise) and forward Yi Jianlian (wrist). Mo Williams and Desmond Mason returned to the starting lineup from injuries for Milwaukee.
