Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters at the team's morning shootaround at Madison Square Garden that guard Ray Allen made the trip to New York and is expected to suit up Tuesday night against the Knicks.

Allen has missed 10 of the team's last 15 games due to right ankle soreness. He did not travel for the back-to-back-to-back to open this four-game road trip, but will give it a go after a full week of rest (he last played in Miami on April 10).

The Celtics are 13-2 without Allen this season and 3-1 since he's moved to a bench role allowing second-year guard Avery Bradley to run with the first unit.
