Allen admitted that his hamstring is still bothering him, but he said he felt fine in Game 1, Peter Fleischer of Fox 13 in Memphis reports.

Allen returned to action in Game 1 after missing the final nine games of the regular season. He said he was rusty, but the hamstring loosened up as the game went on. At this point, Allen's status doesn't look to be in jeopardy, though with the hamstring at less than 100 percent it's possible he could re-tweak it.

Allen (hamstring) stuffed the stat sheet in a Game 1 win against the Blazers on Sunday. He posted four points, three rebounds, two assists, three steals, and one block in 25 minutes of action.

In spite of his lack of scoring, Allen was still able to contribute heavily for the Grizzlies on the defensive end. This is something that we'll see as the Playoffs goes on, as Allen is a crafty veteran defender, and his strong production will be heavily dependent on his performance on the defensive end.

Allen (hamstring) will play in Sunday's Game 1 against Portland, Rob Fischer of Sports 56 WHBQ-87.7FM reports.

Allen missed the final nine games of the regular season and there's concern that he'll be rusty when he takes the court Sunday. As a result, his workload may fall short of the 26.2 minutes that he averaged over the course of the season since he needs to be eased back into action after such a prolonged absence.
