Darnell Mayberry, who covers the Oklahoma City Thunder for The Oklahoman, tweeted the following on Allen's status.
Joerger won't say who he's starting in place of Randolph. He said he won't start Tony Allen, though.The Grizzlies are short-handed tonight against the Thunder, prompting Allen, along with Mike Conley to play with injuries which may sideline them if this was a regular season game. Expect Courtney Lee to start again in place of Allen. Lee had four points, a rebound and a blocked shot in 22 minutes in Game 6.
