Allen (eye) is questionable to play Friday against the Bulls, the Grizzlies sideline reporter Rob Fischer reports.

The Grizzlies are calling the injury a corneal abrasion, which boils down to a scratched eye. Even when healthy, Allen is not a reliable fantasy option in standard leagues anyway. In his absence, Vince Carter had a solid offensive game, and could be useful if he's able to add the minutes left by Allen as he did Wednesday.

Allen has a right corneal abrasion and is questionable for Wednesday's game in San Antonio, Grizzlies reporter Rob Fischer reports.

Allen returned after missing the last two games with an illness, contributing 12 points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one block in 20 minutes during the Grizzlies' 107-91 win versus the Clippers on Sunday.

Coach Dave Joerger elected to have Allen cover Chris Paul at times, with Mike Conley assigned the task of chasing J.J. Redick around, and Allen displayed his usual impressive defense while helping the Grizzlies improve to 12-2. In 12 games Allen is averaging 7.3 points (46.3 FG, 16.7 3Pt, 61.9 FT), 4.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.9 steals and 0.3 blocks in 27 minutes per game. Though his offensive contributions can be inconsistent and he lacks a three-point shot, his defense against the elite perimeter players keeps him on the court for sufficient minutes. So long as that remains the case, he may have decent value in deeper leagues.
