The good news is that this is only the Grizzlies’ first game of the season — which allows Allen to get healthy.
In addition to Chandler Parsons, the bad news is that Memphis will be without two starters, but this will give other players off the bench more playing time.
Brandan Wright has been ruled out as well with an ankle injury.
