Tony Allen has been diagnosed with a non-displaced left proximal fibula fracture and is expected to miss the next 3-4 weeks of action.

Allen isn't a huge part of the rotation in New Orleans, so there won't be a large impact in fantasy hoops with him out. Darius Miller and Dante Cunningham will likely pick up most of his minutes, but neither of those guys are worth owning in most leagues.

Tony Allen (left knee) will not play on Monday vs. Houston.

Allen has been on the fringe of the rotation lately and hasn't been able to stay healthy. Darius Miller has emerged as a reliable 3-point shooter for the Pelicans and is a better fit for their offense, so Allen belongs on the waiver wire.

Tony Allen (left knee) exited Sunday's game in the first quarter and did not return.

Knee inflammation has bothered Allen all season, and he headed directly into the locker room after appearing to aggravate the knee tonight. New Orleans won't be taking any risks with their 35-year-old swingman, so we're not expecting to see him on the court Monday.

Tony Allen was a DNP-CD on Friday against the Kings.

He didn't even get to play against his former Grit and Grind buddy, Zach Randolph. This is slightly interesting with Rajon Rondo (rest) out of the lineup, which opened up some wing minutes today. Allen is going to be 36 next month and he'll have a cap on his minutes regardless of how thin the Pelicans are.

Tony Allen (knee) had seven points, three rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes vs. the Wolves on Wednesday.

Allen hit 2-of-6 shots, including a 3-pointer, but this does nothing to improve his fantasy outlook. He's yet to score more than 10 points all season.

Tony Allen (knee) is not on the Pelicans injury report and is expected to play Wednesday vs. Minnesota.

Allen missed practice on Monday but appears to be on track to suit up Wednesday night. However, Allen is averaging fewer than 14 minutes a night and has a very limited impact from a fantasy perspective.

Tony Allen (knee) did not practice on Monday and it's unclear if he'll be available for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

Allen's knee has been giving him issues all year long, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him forced to spend another game on the sidelines. He's not a huge part of the rotation in New Orleans, so whether he plays or not will not have any major impact in fantasy hoops.
Mon, Nov 27, 2017 03:11:00 PM

Tony Allen had six points, four rebounds and one turnover in 11 minutes of action on Friday.

The 14-year veteran is averaging just 13.9 minutes this season, and he's off the fantasy radar while guys like E'Twaun Moore, Dante Cunningham and Darius Miller are all healthy.
Sat, Nov 25, 2017 12:27:00 AM

Tony Allen (knee) has been removed from the Pelicans injury report and will play vs. the Spurs on Wednesday.

Allen had missed four straight games before returning for Monday's matchup with the Thunder. He finished with six points, six rebounds and a steal in 18 minutes off the bench on Monday. Allen is averaging fewer than four points and playing less than 14 minutes a night this season. He should be left on the waiver wire.

Tony Allen returned from a knee injury on Monday and had six points, six rebounds and a steal in 18 minutes off the bench.

He'd missed four straight games with the injury and his return could eat into the minutes of E'Twaun Moore, who started as the Pelicans went small tonight. Just keep an eye on Allen, as he should not be owned in most fantasy leagues right now.

Alvin Gentry said he expects Tony Allen (knee) to play Monday against the Thunder.

Allen has spent the past four games on the sidelines, so he'll likely only see minutes in the teens tonight, rendering him a non-option in most leagues.
Mon, Nov 20, 2017 06:22:00 PM

Tony Allen (knee) is questionable to face the Thunder on Monday.

Allen has spent the past four games on the sidelines, but he was supposed to return to action on Friday, which hints that he's at least getting close. Perhaps he'll be able to get out there Monday night, but he won't be earning enough minutes to warrant a roster spot in most settings.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 03:27:00 PM

Tony Allen (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

He was originally expected to play, but the Pelicans will continue to be cautious. Darius Miller has thrived in Allen's absence, averaging 17.0 points, 0.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.0 steal and 3.5 triples over his last two games.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 09:21:00 PM

Tony Allen (knee) is likely going to play against the Nuggets on Friday.

Darius Miller has been in one of his best stretches of his NBA career, so it'll be inresting to see how coach Alvin Gentry wants to divide the minutes between Miller, Allen and Dante Cunningham. All three do not have much value in non-deep leagues.
