Chris Forsberg, ESPN Boston

The loss of Allen, which comes just as the Celtics celebrated finally getting back to full health, leaves Boston dangerously thin at guard, prompting Rivers to phone home to see what could be done to expedite the physical Robinson needs to pass before he could even fly to Portland for Friday's game.
Rivers noted it was still possible the team could have Robinson in uniform against Portland -- wearing his new No. 4 jersey --- but suggested it was unlikely. He jokingly asked reporters if they had a private plane that might be available to deliver Robinson to the Pacific Northwest in time for tipoff.
Another option might have been to fly the Celtics doctor out to the West Coast. Just saying... But what do I know? If it was up to me we'd have Caron Butler, Tyrus Thomas, and DJ Augustin right now. Silly me.
