SEATTLE (AP) _ Guard Ray Allen and rookie forward Nick Collision were placed on the injured list by the Seattle SuperSonics on Monday.
Allen has an injured right ankle. He met with an orthopedist in Los Angeles on Monday to determine if surgery was needed. A team spokeswoman said there is no word on how long the injury will sideline the three-time All-Star.
Collison, meanwhile, is out for the season after surgery this month to repair a partially dislocated left shoulder. The 12th overall pick in this year’s draft, he was injured during training camp.
Collison is expected to have surgery on his right shoulder in two months. Doctors recommended that procedure as a precaution after it had weakened.
