Allen returned from a strained left hamstring for the Memphis Grizzlies' playoff opener Sunday, a 100-86 win over Portland.

Allen missed the last nine games of the regular season. He had four points and three steals in 25-plus minutes Sunday.

Allen was suspended for Tuesday night's game against the Utah Jazz for violating team policy.

Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger announced the one-game suspension in his media availability before the game. Joerger did not elaborate on the policy Allen violated. He said it was an isolated incident, and he expects Allen and the team will move forward after the suspension.

Tony Allen is day-to-day with a sprained ankle.

The Memphis Grizzlies' leader with 2.0 steals per game suffered his injury in a 101-83 win over Philadelphia on Jan. 24.

Allen recorded seven steals Monday against the New York Knicks.

Known as a defensive stopper, Allen has recorded seven or more steals three times in his career.

Allen is out with an eye injury.

It's unclear how long Allen will be out.

Courtney Lee and Tony Allen are among five players who have been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Toronto Raptors because of illness.

Memphis coach Dave Joerger said center Kosta Koufos, forward Jon Leuer and guard Beno Udrih were sent back to the hotel to keep them away from their teammates. A Grizzlies spokesman said he understood that Allen and Lee had both been hospitalized to receive fluids because both were dehydrated.

The NBA has fined Allen $15,000 for intentionally striking a camera on the baseline during Memphis' win over New Orleans.

The league announced the fine Tuesday. Allen struck the camera with 10:01 left in the third quarter Monday night of the Grizzlies' 93-81 win over the Pelicans in Memphis.
