Allen misses media session for family matter


Posted Jun 12 2010 3:28PM

BOSTON (AP) -- Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen missed Saturday's media session for the NBA finals because of a family matter.

Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said Allen arrived at the TD Garden in time for practice.

Twiss said Allen was given permission to miss the session on the off day before Sunday night's Game 5 against the Los Angeles Lakers.

No other details were available.

Allen's son, Walker, was diagnosed with diabetes during the 2008 finals and Allen nearly missed Game 6 when he flew home separately from the team to be with his son.
