Grayson Allen is back.
When Coach K announced Grayson Allen’s suspension for his latest tripping incident, Duke’s legendary coach said it would be “indefinite.”
“As a program, we needed to take further steps regarding his actions that do not meet the standards of Duke Basketball. To that end, we have determined that Grayson will be suspended from competition for an indefinite amount of time,” Krzyzewski said at the time.
Apparently, “indefinitely” means one game. Allen, also stripped of his captaincy as a result of the incident, is back in the starting lineup for Duke tonight against Georgia Tech. He missed just one contest – Saturday’s loss against Virginia Tech.
A lot of people aren’t happy.
So Grayson Allen was suspended indefinitely… for one game? Got it.

Grayson Allen used his down time wisely. He visited the Cobra Kai Dojo to refine his sweep the leg skills

Grayson Allen's indefinite suspension lasted 1 game. I guess he learned his lesson!

How freaking typical. Grayson Allen's "indefinite" suspension only lasted one game. Completely absurd

Coach K sticking it to Grayson Allen here. His program will not tolerate that behavior! (unless we lose to unranked team while you're gone).

Duke and Georgia Tech are set to tip off at 7 p.m. E.T. on ESPN2. This will be Coach K’s final game before he undergoes back surgery and misses about a month.
