The Blue Devils are getting Grayson Allen back tonight.
Duke’s “indefinite” suspension of star guard Grayson Allen will last just one game.
Allen, who was suspended “indefinitely” following his latest tripping incident against Elon on Dec. 21, will start for the Blue Devils tonight against Georgia Tech. Duke’s loss to Virginia Tech last weekend will be the only game he was suspended for.

Allen was also stripped of his captaincy, but some will certainly see this punishment as a hollow one from Coach K. Many, including former Duke star Jay Williams, thought Allen needed to be suspended for multiple games (Williams said it should be five games).
Duke and Georgia Tech are set to tip off at 7 p.m. E.T. this evening. The game will be televised on ESPN2. It will be Coach K’s final game on the bench before undergoing a back surgery that will keep him out for a month or so.
