I don't think Rafter would be his coach, actually Allegro isn't that bad a doubles player, it depends on whether he feels like playing or not. I have witnessed him playing well and playing with Roger should lift his game.
I did see when Roger/Hrbaty played at the AO one year, they somehow lost a match that they shouldn't have. Seeing their disbelief afterwards was funny.

Roger is good enough to do it, but the question is whether he fit enough at this moment in time. For sure I don't think they will the tournament, but if they win a few matches then it won't cause too much harm. He can use the doubles as good practice.
