According to Michael Wallace of Grind City Media, the Grizzlies' media arm, the injury Tony Allen suffered early in last night's game against the Dallas Mavericks has proven to be something of a worst-case scenario for the Grizzlies as they prepare to face the Spurs in the first round:
Grizzlies SG Tony Allen diagnosed Thursday with right calf strain. He's out indefinitely and doubtful for 1st-round playoff series vs Spurs.— Michael Wallace (@MyMikeCheck) April 13, 2017
Allen's injury leaves a big hole in the Grizzlies' perimeter defense, and also hampers the offensive rebounding of the Grizzlies' starting unit. Not much of a good way to spin this one for the boys in Beale Street Blue.
