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.

He's also made multiple threes in five games in a row, and while he's not expected to be a go-to player on offense for the Grizzlies, he's certainly putting up decent numbers in recent games. He's also scored in double digits in nine of his previous 11 contests.
