Allen (knee) supplied eight points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block over 29 minutes in Thursday's 97-90 loss to the Spurs. Allen took the court after missing Tuesday's game against the Pelicans with his sore left knee and provided his typically full stat line. The veteran will never wow you with his scoring totals, but his ability to contribute across the stat sheet keeps him viable in deeper formats and renders him a cost-effective play in daily leagues. Factoring in Thursday's production, Allen is averaging 8.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists across 25.2 minutes in 10 March contests.
Allen (knee) will play and start at shooting guard for Thursday's game against the Spurs. As expected, Allen will take the floor for Thursday's game after missing Tuesday's matchup with a sore left knee. He'll rejoin the starting five and should see around 25 minutes of run. As a result, Wayne Selden will move back to the bench.
Allen (knee) is still a game-time decision, but is expected to suit up for Thursday's tilt against the Spurs, Rob Fischer of FOX Sports Southeast reports. After being held out of Tuesday's matchup with the Pelicans due to a sore left knee, Allen is expected to play during Thursday's game against the Spurs. Despite the official designation of a game-time decision, coach David Fizdale expects Allen to take the floor, so he should likely be considered probable.
Allen (knee) received treatment during Wednesday's practice and is expected to be listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Spurs, Michael Wallace of Grizzlies.com reports. Allen was held out Tuesday against the Pelicans because of a sore left knee, and he's apparently still dealing with some discomfort. That said, with an MVP candidate in Kawhi Leonard on the docket, the Grizzlies would definitely benefit if the defensive-minded Allen was available, so he'll likely do everything he can to suit up Thursday. The Grizzlies will reevaluate Allen at their morning shootaround Thursday before potentially updating his status for the game later that evening.
Allen won't play Tuesday against the Pelicans due to a left knee injury, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports. The nature of Allen's injury hasn't been revealed, but it's likely the 35-year-old is battling some routine soreness. He's played in the Pelicans' last 13 contests and logged 31 minutes, his highest total in nearly two months, Saturday against the Spurs. In Allen's absence, expect either James Ennis or Troy Daniels to pick up the start at shooting guard, though both players should be in line for more playing time than usual.
