Allen finished scoreless (0-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt) with three rebounds in Wednesday's Game 2 loss to Utah. A first-round pick of the Jazz in 2018, Allen struggled to settle in against his former team and finished as a game-worst minus-23 in 19 minutes of action. Allen missed all six of his attempts from the field, including a pair of key three-pointers on a night when Memphis hit just eight threes as a team. For most of the season, Allen has shared minutes with Desmond Bane (24 minutes in Game 2) and De'Anthony Melton (17), and that will likely continue to be the case for the duration of Round 1.
Allen (abdomen) played five minutes off the bench in Wednesday's 100-96 win over the Spurs in the Western Conference play-in tournament, finishing with zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one turnover and no other statistics. After missing the Grizzlies' final seven regular-season games with a left abdominal strain, Allen filled only a minor bench role in his return to action. Allen's playing time could ramp up a bit Friday, when the Grizzlies face the Warriors in the final game of the play-in tournament. Even if that's the case, Allen likely won't get enough playing time to make for an appealing option in DFS contests.
Allen (abdomen) is available for Wednesday's play-in game against the Spurs. With the Grizzlies' season on the line, Allen is set to return following a seven-game absence due to abdominal soreness. The 25-year-old averaged 10.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 25.2 minutes per game this season.
Allen (abdomen) is questionable for Wednesday's play-in game against the Spurs. Abdominal soreness has caused Allen to miss the past seven games, and he was considered week-to-week. But with the Grizzlies' season on the line, he's been upgraded to questionable.
Allen (abdomen) is considered week-to-week with an abdominal strain and the team will provide an update on him by the end of the week, Evan Barnes of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports. Allen will likely be sidelined through at least Tuesday due to his injury, and it sounds like he may only be available for one or two more regular season games at most. Desmond Bane and De'Anthony Melton will likely benefit from Allen's absence.
