Matt Barnes seems likely to start in place of Tony Allen against the Magic

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Marc Gasol is finally healed up to be removed from the injury report, but now the Grizzlies have another starter ailing.

The Grizzlies official game notes list Matt Barnes as the probable starter at small forward tonight against the Orlando Magic. Barnes has scored double digit points in 6 of his 9 games in January, and when he isn't scoring he's still filling up the stat sheet with rebounds, assists and steals. Barnes should see an increased role tonight regardless of whether or not Tony Allen starts.
