The Utah Jazz entered the 2018-19 season riding a wave of positive momentum. On the heels of Donovan Mitchell bursting onto the NBA scene as a rookie and establishing himself as a worthy co-star to…

Grayson Allen scored 17 points on 6-of-13 shooting while adding five rebounds and an assist on Monday.
Allen still wasn't all that great in this one and if we're being honest, he hasn't shown much to prove himself to be a rotational player. The Grizzlies could still give him a spot on the team to start the regular season, but nothing has stood out from Allen as his saving grace would have been shooting, but tonight he went 0-for-3 from deep.

Grayson Allen scored three points on 1-of-8 shooting with a 3-pointer, two rebounds and four assists before being ejected in Thursday's 87-113 blowout loss to the Celtics.
He got in a scuffle with Grant Williams and clearly shoved him which resulted in an ejection. Allen is a guy with some potential as a shooter, but his antics have followed him throughout his career at Duke and it looks like it hasn't stopped. The Grizzlies are in full rebuild right now so there's ample opportunity for him to prove himself, as long as he can stay on the court.

Guard Grayson Allen looks forward to finding his role with a young Memphis team.
The Grizzlies' shooting guard spot appears up for grabs among a group of young players. Third-year guard Dillon Brooks started 74 games as a rookie in 2017-18, but he missed 64 games because of injuries last season. Memphis also acquired Josh Jackson in a trade with the Suns and then there is Allen. He is the least-experienced of the trio and appeared in just 38 NBA games as a rookie, but he now has a fresh start with a rebuilding team and the opportunity will be there for him.

Mike Conley is now officially a member of the Utah Jazz in a trade involving Jae Crowder, Kyle Korver, Grayson Allen and 23rd pick Darius Bazley.
The Grizzlies will also acquire a future protected first-round pick. Korver will be involved in another to the Suns while Crower, Allen and Bazley should stay for the Memphis rebuild. Conley will form a dynamic backcourt with Donovan Mitchell while Grizzlies owner Robert Parra issued a statement that the team will one day hang Conley's jersey in the rafters after spending 12 memorable seasons with them.

Grayson Allen is part of Wednesday's Mike Conley trade and will be headed to the Grizzlies when the deal is completed.
Allen only appeared in 37 games for the Jazz, though he did end up dropping 40 points in the season finale when Utah rested most of its players. On a rebuilding team, Allen is a lock to play more, but whether he becomes more than a deep-league points and threes guy is up for debate.

Grayson Allen set multiple career-highs in a start for the Jazz on Wednesday, taking advantage of the opportunity to end up with 40 points on 11-of-30 shooting (five 3s), adding seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block.
Wow. Talk about ending things with a bang. That's exactly what Allen did. Donovan Mitchell sat his one out with thoracic spasms, so the team looked to Allen to deliver on offense. This game serves as an obvious high point to what was otherwise a nondescript rookie campaign for Allen, who wound up just appearing in 37 games due to the lingering effects of a nasty right ankle sprain he suffered on Christmas Eve. Still, the final takeaway here is that Allen has showcased his potential and is a sophomore to watch in 2019-20.

Grayson Allen scored 23 points off the bench in Friday's blowout win against the Kings.
Allen hit 10-of-14 shots with three treys, two assists, one steal, one block, six turnovers, five fouls and he slid underneath De'Aaron Fox's jumper to put him out of the game. It's possible he gets some silly season run.

Grayson Allen was sent down to the Jazz’s G League affiliate on Monday.
The rookie from Duke is shooting just 31.2 percent from the field and 27.5 percent from deep. He’s totaled just 11 rebounds and 17 assists through 276 minutes of action while he ranks 486th of 490 players in Real Plus-Minus, with a negative-5.49 rating. He is only a stash in dynasty leagues.

Grayson Allen put up 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting in 17 minutes of action in a loss to the Blazers on Wednesday.
He saw 17 minutes due to the massive difference in the score all game long, but it was nice to see him get some court time. Leave him on the wire.

Grayson Allen (right ankle sprain) is no longer listed on the injury and should available against the Bulls on Saturday.
Allen was not really part of the rotation even when healthy so this should not have any fantasy implications. The 21st overall pick of 2018 is at 4.1 points, 0.3 rebounds and 0.6 triples in 9.7 minutes over 16 games this year.

Grayson Allen (right ankle sprain) will remain out against the Pistons on Saturday.
Allen suffered the injury roughly two weeks ago but he wasn't part of the rotation even prior to that. He can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Grayson Allen (ankle) has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Cavaliers.
Allen has only appeared in 17 games this season and hasn't played since December 12th in which he logged nine minutes and scored three points on 20.0 percent shooting. That game was a blowout which is the main reason he played and he isn't worth owning in any leagues that aren't dynasty format.

Grayson Allen (sprained right ankle) remains out ahead of Thursday's game vs. the Sixers.
Allen was spotted in a walking boot on Christmas Eve day and he could be out for an extended period of time. He's just a dynasty hold right now.

Grayson Allen was reportedly in a walking boot after spraining his right ankle.
Allen is out tomorrow, obviously. This has the looks of a multi-week absence but it won't change a thing in re-draft leagues. Allen is only an option in dynasty formats.
