Celtics guard Allen charged with aggravated battery
Allen was released on a $150,000 bond. He will only be allowed to travel for work purposes and was ordered back to court for a preliminary hearing Oct. 26, said Tom Stanton, a spokesman for the state's attorney's office.
Allen's attorney, Michael Zaslavsky, said the player is not considered a suspect in the shooting.
Zaslavsky said Allen has been in jail since Wednesday, when he voluntarily went to a Chicago police station to meet with investigators.
One man was shot in the left arm and left side Aug. 29 when gunfire erupted during an early-morning fight at the White Palace Grill, police said.
Allen was drafted by the Celtics 25th overall in 2004 and started 34 games as a rookie. He averaged 6.4 points and 2.9 rebounds.
Allen, who had a small piece of cartilage removed from his right knee in September, has not played in the preseason.
