Allen had 20 points (6-14 FG, 4-10 3PT, 4-4 FT) and four rebounds in Sunday's loss to Toronto. After battling injuries for much of the year, Allen has emerged as a key role player in Orlando, with Sunday marking his fifth straight game with double-digit scoring. Allen doesn't add much in other categories, though he's averaging 4.0 made threes over his last five contests.
Allen posted 20 points (7-10 FG, 6-8 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 124-115 loss to the Jazz. Against his former team, Allen posted a season-high 20 points, which came on the back of a career-high six three-pointers. He's taken on a sizeable role in the bubble, now scoring at least 15 points in three straight games.
Allen posted 17 points (6-10 FG, 5-6 3Pt), two assists and a steal in 31 minutes off the bench during Monday's loss to the Pelicans. Allen came off the bench and finished the game as the Grizzlies' second-highest scorer, trailing only Jaren Jackson's 22-point performance. Allen is not known for these scoring exploits, however, and he is not likely to maintain this level of performance moving forward, especially if he remains in the bench role he's held all year long.
Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins said that Allen (hip) was a full participant Sunday in the team's practice, which included 5-on-5 work, Evan Barnes of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports. Allen hasn't played since Jan. 24 and was presumed to be out for the remainder of 2019-20 with an injury the team labeled as a left knee displacement back in March, but the NBA season's unexpected four-plus-month hiatus has apparently provided the third-year guard with enough time to return to full health. The 24-year-old's ability to practice without restrictions should make him an option off the bench for Jenkins when the Grizzlies return to action July 31 versus the Trail Blazers, but Allen will likely find himself behind Ja Morant, Dillon Brooks, De'Anthony Melton and Tyus Jones in the backcourt pecking order.
The Grizzlies officially ruled Allen (hip) out for the season earlier this month, Omari Sankofa II of The Athletic reports. Memphis had been vague about Allen's recovery timeline since the left hip injury first surfaced in late January, even after his college coach, Mike Krzyzewski, leaked the news about a month ago that the second-year guard would be sidelined for the remainder of the season. The Grizzlies have now confirmed that Allen won't return in 2019-20, while also providing a new diagnosis for his injury, which is being termed a "left hip displacement." Allen will most likely be ready to go for the start of training camp in the fall.
