While the altercation was not physical, Allen's suspension was because Allen waved off coaches who were trying to calm him down after the confrontation.
With the suspension over, Allen will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game at Houston. The Grizzlies are 3 1/2-point underdogs.
Calathes missed the last seven games of last season and sat out the team's first 13 games this season before returning Sunday. His return and the improved health of the rest of the roster after multiple players were struck with an illness over the previous week puts the Grizzlies roster at full strength moving forward.
Calathes was hit with the suspension for violating the league's Anti-Drug policy, though his failed test reportedly si not due to testosterone or PED use. According to the report, Calathes tested positive for Tamoxifen, part of an over-the-counter athletic supplement Calathes was using.
Calathes appeared in 71 games for the Grizzlies, and his loss will be felt, as he was the team's primary reserve at point guard. He finished his rookie season averaging 4.9 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 16.5 minutes per game.
Calathes also contributed with six assists, five rebounds and one steal while logging 39 minutes of game action. He has averaged 14.6 points, 4.4 assists and 4.2 rebounds over his last five games played.
Three of his four treys came in the fourth quarter. Calathes scored 22 points on 8 of 12 shooting from the field, including 4 of 5 from behind the arc, and 2 of 3 from the charity stripe. He also chipped in with five rebounds, three assists and one steal while logging 40 minutes of game action.
He will assume point guard duties while Conley recovers from injury. Calathes has averaged 9.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists over his last five games played.
