BREAKING: Grizzlies' Allen, Conley Will Play Against Thunder

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Grizzlies' coach Dave Joerger announced that Tony Allen and Mike Conley will both play in Game 7 Saturday night in Oklahoma City.  

Allen was reportedly suffering from migrain headaches and missed today's shootaround. 

"He had an eye issue," Joerger said of Allen.  "He got poked in the eye the other night, but he's gonna go and give us everything he's got."

Conley suffered a hamstring injury in Game 6, but will also give it a go. Joerger admitted that Conley won't be 100 percent and that he isn't sure how much Conley can provide.

"Hard to tell until we get out there," Joerger said.  "We'll see how effective he is at both ends of the floor."

Memphis is already without starting power forward Zach Randolph, who was suspended for throwing a punch at OKC's Steven Adams.  Joerger wasn't quite ready to admit Randolph's replacement.   

"Yes I do (know) but I'm not gonna tell," Joerger said with a smile.

Joerger explained that even though Randolph is out, Memphis doesn't want to drmatically alter what has gotten them to this point.

"We can't play in chaos," Joerger emphasized. "We can't play like the Houston's and the Portlands and Oklahoma City. I don't wanna go in and play (like) that for the first time in a Game 7 against a team that's really good at that."
