Tony Allen will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Spurs.
Allen will start alongside Jordan Farmar, Vince Carter, Matt Barnes and Zach Randolph. The Grizzlies were much more competitive in Game 3 and only lost to the Spurs by nine points after getting blown out in the first two games of the series, so it's a no-brainer for them to stick with this lineup. Allen had five points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 35 minutes in Game 3, but he was torched by Kawhi Leonard and will look to bounce back in Game 4. Apr 24 - 12:42 PM

Date:

Tony Allen moved into the starting lineup on Friday with five points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 35 minutes.

He had the tough task of guarding Kawhi Leonard and it was a rare time Allen couldn't lock down his man. The Grizzlies fared much better with the smaller starting lineup, so expect Allen to start again. He'll be too tough to use most nights.
Apr 23 - 12:01 AM

Tony Allen will start on Friday with Chris Andersen moving to the bench.

Their big lineup didn't work in the first two games, so why not change it up? Plus, not having Jarell Martin (foot) makes their second unit thinner. Allen only gains a little value with this move.
Apr 22 - 9:23 PM

Tony Allen scored 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting with three boards, one assist and two steals in 21 minutes vs. the Spurs on Tuesday.

This was his second game in a row playing 21 minutes, but it's safe to assume that he would've probably played more if the games were somewhat close. Lance Stephenson might be in coach Dave Joerger's doghouse after Tuesday's loss, so maybe we will see more of Allen in Game 3 on Friday.
Apr 20 - 12:35 AM

Tony Allen (hamstring) posted seven points, three rebounds, one assist and one block on Sunday, logging 21 minutes in a road loss to the Spurs.

Allen isn't 100 percent but he'll do everything he can to stay on the court for the decimated Grizzlies, who are already missing starters Mike Conley and Marc Gasol. He came off the bench tonight behind Vince Carter but could find himself starting Game 2 on Tuesday.
Apr 17 - 10:35 PM

David Joerger hinted that Tony Allen (hamstring) could see a limited workload during Sunday's Game 1 against the Spurs.

Joerger would only say "we'll see," when asked how many minutes he plans on playing Allen during Game 1, so it sounds like pain tolerance will dictate Allen's workload. He's a risky DFS target with an unclear picture regarding his playing time tonight.
Apr 17 - 7:04 PM

Tony Allen (hamstring) will be ready to go for Game 1.

He did say his pain "runs deeper than the ocean." Allen seems like he might be limited, which could give a couple extra minutes to Matt Barnes and Lance Stephenson.
Apr 15 - 2:57 PM

Tony Allen (hamstring) is out against the Warriors on Wednesday.

He wants to rest his hamstring before the playoffs. We'll see more Vince Carter, Matt Barnes, P.J. Hairston and Lance Stephenson tonight.
Apr 13 - 10:19 PM

Tony Allen is questionable to face the Warriors on Wednesday.

He did not play in the last two games and he'll probably sit this one out, too. That would mean more minutes for Lance Stephenson, Matt Barnes, P.J. Hairston and Vince Carter. Although, any of those players could rest, so it's probably not something fantasy owners should pursue.
Apr 13 - 5:13 PM

Tony Allen (hamstring) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Clippers.

This will be Allen's second straight game on the shelf, and it's unclear if he will be able to play in the regular season finale on Wednesday vs. the Warriors. Lance Stephenson logged 38 minutes in Allen's absence on Saturday, so he should benefit the most tonight.
Apr 12 - 9:08 PM

Tony Allen (left hamstring soreness) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

Coach Dave Joerger admitted that he's concerned about Allen's hamstring, so the Grizzlies may hold him out so that he's ready for the postseason. If Allen sits on Tuesday, Lance Stephenson should benefit the most.
Apr 11 - 7:57 PM

Dave Joerger admitted to being concerned about Tony Allen's hamstring injury.

Allen "appeared to drag that leg into the gym," which is a clear indication that he's still favoring the injury. The Grizzlies will likely give him all of the rest they can before the playoffs begin, so we wouldn't be relying on him in any fantasy format right now. Without TA, we'll continue to see more of Lance Stephenson and Matt Barnes.
Apr 11 - 1:14 PM

Tony Allen (left hamstring soreness) is out against the Warriors on Saturday.

He hinted earlier that resting is more important than the five seed, so there you go. There will be more minutes going to Lance Stephenson, Matt Barnes and maybe P.J. Hairston. Allen could be rested again, so cutting him makes sense.
Apr 9 - 7:09 PM

Tony Allen implied getting healthy is more important than the No. 5 seed in the playoffs.

"We know we’re in the playoffs," Allen said. "Our thing is going into the playoffs healthy. We shot ourselves in the foot as far as staying in the fifth seed. We can’t cry over it. We just have to stay ready and compete." There is a chance Allen rests on Saturday.
Apr 9 - 4:33 PM

Tony Allen scored a game-high 25 points on 8-of-14 shooting Friday, to go with seven boards, one assist, three steals, one block and two turnovers in 37 minutes.

Allen was also a perfect 9-of-9 from the charity stripe, giving him a solid true shooting percentage of 69.6 on the evening to go with his 23.4 usage rate. Unsurprisingly, just one of Allen's 14 attempts from the field came from outside the restricted area, although he did surprisingly convert on that attempt. He's worth owning in all leagues.
