Grayson Allen’s Long Nightmare Is Over: ‘Indefinite Suspension’ Lasted One Game
Grayson Allen scored 15 points in 27 minutes tonight in Duke's 110-57 win over Georgia Tech ... wait, wasn't Allen "suspended indefinitely" after tripping yet another opponent in a game on Dec. 22? And wasn't that just two games games ago?
Well, yes. Turns out that Allen's indefinite suspension lasted just one game.
When Allen tripped Elon's Steven Santa Ana, Mike Krzyzewski put the hammer down, saying “As a program, we needed to take further steps regarding his actions that do not meet the standards of Duke Basketball.” He suspended Allen.
But all it took was a loss to Virginia Tech without Allen to convince everyone at Duke that he is a changed man. Look, it's a new year, squirrels are singing and those sparrows are actually helping Allen put on that uniform top! Duke announced the exciting news this afternoon.
Grayson Allen, Luke Kennard, Jayson Tatum, Harry Giles and Amile Jefferson are Duke's starters tonight. One-game suspension for Allen

It's like every movie you see where the protagonist learns a difficult skill -- like boxing or sword fighting -- during a four-minute workout montage. Remember how Tom Cruise learned to be a Samurai during a summer in the mountains in The Last Samurai? Well, Allen completely changed his attitude and life outlook after only 13 days and one game!
Duke University certainly is a magical place. It's like going to school in Narnia.
