University of Memphis junior point guard Andre Allen suffered a mild collision at practice today and was released from Methodist Hospital this afternoon after being examined, the school said.

Allen collided with teammate Jeremy Hunt in practice at FedExForum this afternoon. He was transported by ambulance to Methodist Hospital, examined and then released after the diagnosis. Hunt was on the floor after the collision for about 10 minutes and got up rubbing his head, but was pronounced fine by emergency medical personnel on the scene.

Hunt will likely play Saturdday against Middle Tennessee State at FedExForum at noon; Allen is considered doubtful and will be evaluated daily by the school's medical staff.
