Tony Allen out indefinitely with calf strain

He will most likely miss the entire Spurs series

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Los Angeles Lakers Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Tony Allen is out indefinitely and could miss the entire series against the San Antonio Spurs after suffering a calf strain, the team has announced on their website.

The official diagnosis from team’s press release and the team's website says:

Grizzlies guard Tony Allen has been diagnosed with a strain of the medial gastrocnemius muscle (calf) in his right leg. Allen is out indefinitely and will be continually re-evaluated while beginning rehab immediately.”

Michael Wallace also tweeted, "I'm told Allen is already in the initial stages of rehab and recovery, but it remains unclear how much time he might miss.”

The Grizzlies play the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of the series at 8:00 PM ET Saturday in San Antonio. The teams were tied at 2-2 during their four games played in the regular season.

Adrian Wojnarowski is not particularly hopeful for Allen's return.

This certainly impacts any hopes the Grizzlies had to upset the Spurs. Stick with GBB for continuing coverage of the 2017 NBA Playoff run of the Memphis Grizzlies.
