Date:

Tony Allen (hamstring) will not play vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

Vince Carter will step into the starting lineup, but Jeff Green will probably see the biggest boost in value off the bench. Allen has no timetable to return, but considering how tricky hamstring strains can be, The Grizzlies will likely be cautious moving forward. Allen should be considered closer to doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Kings.

Tony Allen (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Spurs on Sunday.

He did not return from his hamstring strain on Friday and he's dealt with hamstring strains before this season, so Allen has a decent chance to miss this game. If he's out, expect Jeff Green to step up in the starting lineup while Courtney Lee will also benefit.
Mar 28 - 7:37 PM

Tony Allen suffered a left hamstring strain on Friday.

He's had hamstring issues already this season and the Grizzlies are being blown out, so Allen is likely out for the game. If he needs to miss time, Courtney Lee and Jeff Green should pick up his minutes. Green would start and gain the most value. Allen finished with four points, four boards and one block in 19 minutes.

Tony Allen said he wants to make the All-Defensive first time this year.

"I’m sticking your elite two-guards in the league," Allen sayid. "Not even just two guards: I check the Durants, the Joe Johnsons, the Lebrons—the best player every night. They robbed me last yea. The only reason they didn’t put me in there is because I missed a lot of games, but this year I’m for sure first team." Allen has been on a tear as of late in averaging 11.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 2.8 steals over his last five games and needs to be owned in all standard fantasy leagues.

Tony Allen scored nine points on 4-of-5 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in Monday's win over the Knicks.

Allen has been a top-75 player over the last month and it's well past time he's owned in all standard leagues.
Mar 23 - 11:02 PM

Tony Allen double-doubled with 10 points, 11 rebounds, one assist, six steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

He started tonight with Courtney Lee out of the lineup due to a nagging thumb injury. The more time Lee misses, the bigger the lines will be for Allen. If you need some steals, he's almost a must-own player.
Mar 21 - 11:34 PM

Tony Allen started on Friday against the Mavs with 13 points, seven rebounds, one assist and two steals on 5-of-8 from the field and 3-of-8 from the line in 32 minutes.

This is right up his alley for playing time and usage rate, so Allen will continue to be more of a steals guy with some boards and points mixed in. He's worth a look depending on your needs. Keep an eye on his status for the back-to-back set on Saturday, but there's little doubt the Grindfather will sit in the Grindhouse.
Mar 21 - 1:46 AM

Tony Allen will start for Jeff Green on Friday against the Mavericks.

It's not really a big move because Allen comes in for Green fairly early in the first quarter anyway. There's really no need to adjust minutes projections or output from this move.
Mar 20 - 8:20 PM

Tony Allen returned to action on Saturday with nine points, three rebounds, one assist and four steals in 32 minutes.

He did have a leg injury late in the game, but he didn't leave the court following the issue. Allen is likely going to rest a few games going forward, so he'll be a somewhat annoying player to own especially with the Grizzlies having three more back-to-back sets.
Mar 15 - 12:21 AM

Tony Allen (rest) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Wizards.

With Allen out, Courtney Lee, Jeff Green, and Vince Carter will all see extended minutes, with Green and Lee offering the most upside.
Mar 12 - 1:06 PM

Tony Allen accepted responsibility for his recent suspension and said he's committed to moving forward in a professional manner.

Allen served a one-game suspension on Tuesday after a physical altercation with Nick Calathes and ensuing argument with coaches during practice. ."It’s behind me. You live and you learn. I’ve got to conduct myself better," Allen said. While Allen is the Grizzlies' defensive stopper, he's only averaging 8.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.9 steals on the season and can remain on the wire in standard fantasy leagues.
Mar 5 - 12:28 PM

Tony Allen will return from his one-game suspension vs. the Rockets on Wednesday.

He was suspended for Tuesday's game vs. the Jazz due to an altercation between him and Nick Calathes during practice, but he should resume his normal role off the bench against the Rockets. Allen has season averages of just 8.1 points, 4.0 boards, 1.4 assists and 1.9 steals, so he is only worth a look in deeper leagues for the time being.
Mar 4 - 12:55 PM

Tony Allen (suspension) will not play Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

Allen is being suspended for internal matters, but he will be back in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Houston. With Allen out, Jeff Green and Courtney Lee will get all the minutes they can handle, with Green offering the most upside.
Mar 3 - 6:21 PM

Tony Allen scored 11 points against the Wolves on Saturday with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one turnover against.

Coach Dave Joerger said he could be looking to make a tweak to the starters on the wing, which means Allen would likely move into the first unit. However, his minutes and opportunities to score probably won't change much. Allen has been outside of the top 200 in the past month, so he's not worth owning right now.
