Pelicans guard Tony Allen (sore ankle) is expected to play in the season opener against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Allen should get some decent run on Wednesday behind Jrue Holiday at the two. However, he will be fighting Jordan Crawford for backup minutes so it could be game dependent on who has the hotter hand. Allen’s defensive prowess usually gets him in the floor though, so minutes in the teens could be had. That won’t be enough minutes to put him on the fantasy radar, but he could be a deep league spot start for a sneaky steal or two.
