Tony Allen (right corneal abrasion) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Bulls.
Quincy Pondexter will likely draw the start, while Vince Carter will see extended minutes off the bench. Carter logged 41 minutes during his last outing with Allen sidelined, and put up 18 points with five 3-pointers, he does however have a difficult matchup against the Bulls, so Carter remains a risky option in daily leagues.

Tony Allen (right corneal abrasion) is questionable to play Friday vs. the Bulls.

If Allen is forced to sit, Quincy Pondexter would likely draw another start, but he doesn't do enough statistically to be considered an option in most leagues. While Allen averages 25.8 minutes per game, he's not a large part of the offense (6.5 FGAs per game) so his absence doesn't have too much of a statistical impact on the player replacing him.

Tony Allen (eye) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

He suffered a corneal abrasion to his right eye on Tuesday, and was forced from that game. There is no word as to how severe the issue is, but we will pass along updates as needed. The Grizzlies have yet to name who will start in his place, but Courtney Lee, Tayshaun Prince, and Vince Carter will also see their minutes increased.

Tony Allen suffered a corneal abrasion in his right eye on Tuesday and is questionable to play on Wednesday against the Spurs.

If Allen's out it's going to leave a big dent in the defensive scheme of Memphis, while Courtney Lee, Vince Carter and Tayshaun Prince would all see some extra minutes against the Spurs.
Dec 17 - 2:22 AM

Tony Allen left Tuesday's game after a hard fall and is questionable to return.

It will be interesting to see if he returns to the game and we will be sure to update his status as soon as we know more. If Allen were to miss time, Tayshaun Prince and Vince Carter will see a bump in their minutes, but still won't be worth picking up in standard leagues.
Dec 16 - 10:22 PM

Tony Allen made 6-of-8 shots to finish Sunday's game with a season-high 14 points, as well as five rebounds, two assists and two steals.

He played only 22 minutes and the fact that this was a new season high for scoring shouldn't surprise his fantasy owners who rely on him as a steals-specialist (2.1 per game). All of the Grizzlies' wing players had a fine evening, as Courtney Lee added 17 points and three 3-pointers while Tayshaun Prince chipped in nine points in 29 minutes off the bench.
Dec 7 - 8:36 PM

Tony Allen scored 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds, two assists and three steals in Friday's win over the Blazers.

Allen has returned solid late-round value this season and he should be owned in all 12-team formats.
Nov 29 - 3:50 AM

Tony Allen (illness) returned to the Grizzlies starting lineup and had 12 points, five rebounds, one assist and one block in Sunday's 16-point win vs. the Clippers.

Allen is only 6'4" but his toughness and cerebral defense allow him to start at SF with Courtney Lee spreading the court at SG. This was his third double-digit scoring game of the season and he's shooting an abysmal 46.2 percent at the FT, while adding just 1.3 assists per game, so there are too many flaws in his game for reliable 10-team value.
Nov 23 - 9:20 PM

Tony Allen (illness) will return to the starting lineup on Sunday, sending Tayshaun Prince to the bench.

Allen can be viewed as a steals-specialist as he doesn't contribute much else to the stat sheet, but he does have a favorable matchup today against the Clippers. Get him active if you've got him.
Nov 23 - 5:58 PM

Tony Allen (illness) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

With Allen out, Courtney Lee is going to get all the minutes he can handle. Vince Carter could also see some extended minutes off the bench, but Lee offers the most upside. Allen went through parts of shootaround today, so he shouldn't be out much longer, and we'll consider him questionable Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.
Nov 21 - 7:57 PM

Tony Allen (illness) left Friday morning's shootaround early, and remains questionable to suit up vs. the Celtics.

If Allen is unable to go Vince Carter would likely see an increase in his minutes. Carter was able to play 27 minutes off the bench during his last outing, but was only managed seven points, three assists, and one three-pointer. However, he does have a favorable matchup today vs. the Celtics, so he may be worth the risk in daily leagues.
Nov 21 - 12:48 PM

Tony Allen (illness) is questionable to face the Celtics on Friday.

The Grizzlies were missing half of their team on Wednesday, but they look like they could play on Friday because they waived their emergency guys. Allen owners will want to check back tomorrow evening.
Nov 20 - 7:32 PM

Tony Allen (illness) will not play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

The Grizzlies are in deep trouble with half of their rotation out tonight. Tayshaun Prince, Quincy Pondexter, Vince Carter and Jordan Adams will soak up as many minutes as they can. Allen should be considered questionable for Friday against the Celtics.
Nov 19 - 6:33 PM

Tony Allen, Kosta Koufos, Courtney Lee, Jon Leuer, and Beno Udrih are all questionable to face the Raptors on Wednesday as they are all dealing with flu-like symptoms.

This is a nightmare for the Grizzlies, as they could be incredibly shorthanded against Toronto if they have to sit out. If any of these players sit out, we may get an extended look at rookies Jordan Adams and Jarnell Stokes, while Vince Carter and Quincy Pondexter would likely benefit the most. Stay tuned.

Tony Allen did not score in 24 minutes against the Kings on Thursday with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one turnover.

He is not going to drop 20-point games with regularity, but the steals are going to be there for the Grind Father. Allen is a sneaky specialist in standard leagues, but he's obviously not a must-own player.
