Tony Allen scored 15 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals and no turnovers in 29 minutes during an 88-86 win over the Blazers on Thursday.
How good are the Grizzlies right now? They're on a five-game winning streak, and they've won 12 straight games decided by five or fewer points or went into OT -- that's tied with the 1994-95 Suns as the longest such streak since the merger. As for Allen, he has been rolling with minutes, but coach David Fizdale may dial it back once Vince Carter (hip) comes back. He has some value in standard leagues for now. Dec 9 - 12:24 AM

Tony Allen hit 9-of-14 shots for 19 points, 14 rebounds, three steals and a block in 42 minutes of Monday's intense 110-108 double-overtime win over the Pelicans.

This was easily the best game of the season for Allen and the two overtimes helped. He had a season high in points, rebounds, minutes, shots and makes, while his previous season highs were just 12 points and nine rebounds. He's averaging 11.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.2 steals over his last five, but that number is clearly inflated by tonight's game. Give him a look, but he still doesn't look close to being a must-own player in most instances.
Dec 6 - 12:43 AM

Tony Allen scored nine points with six rebounds, three steals and one turnover in 27 minutes during Thursday's win over the Magic.

While the Grandfather wasn't yelling "First Team All Defense" tonight, he was just terrific on that end late in the game. He had his three steals all come in the final 6:12 to help get the Grizzlies going. Allen has stepped up with more playing time because of the all the injuries. He even said the Grizzlies were "a makeshift team" in his post-game interview. He will likely be managed later in the season, but he could be a steals specialist for some owners.
Dec 2 - 1:16 AM

Tony Allen ran into early foul trouble on Wednesday, finishing a double-OT win vs. the Sixers with nine points on 4-of-10 shooting, three rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes.

With both James Ennis (calf) and Chandler Parsons (knee) on the shelf, Memphis needs everything they can get from Allen. Grizzlies coach David Fizdale wound up playing Vince Carter for 39 minutes, but we expect a more even allotment between Allen and VC during Friday's game vs. the Heat.
Nov 23 - 11:27 PM

Tony Allen (groin) is active for Wednesday against the 76ers.

He should be the starting shooting guard after playing 31 minutes on Monday. Allen's playing time has increased in each of his last two and he could be close to 30 minutes again tonight. He's not a bad option in DFS in a favorable matchup.
Nov 23 - 6:03 PM

Tony Allen (groin) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

Memphis just lost both Chandler Parsons (knee) and James Ennis (calf) for the next two weeks, so they're going to need everything they can get from Allen. He should be playing around 30 minutes for however long his body holds up, and he's worth owning as a steals specialist in deep leagues.
Nov 22 - 6:34 PM

Tony Allen, who was iffy with a groin injury, hit 5-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for a season-high 12 points, four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 31 minutes on Monday.

His groin injury didn't appear to be an issue tonight and he had his best game of the season. He's had at least a steal and a block in each of his last three games, but his lack of offense makes him tough to trust in fantasy, not to mention the fact he's only appeared in seven of Memphis' 14 games thus far.
Nov 21 - 11:22 PM

Tony Allen (groin) will play vs. the Hornets on Monday.

Allen had a "mild aggravation" of the injury during Saturday's game, but it wasn't enough to keep the Grindfather off the court tonight. His availability is great news for a Grizzlies team already playing without Chandler Parsons, but he's little more than a steals specialist.
Nov 21 - 5:43 PM

Tony Allen (groin) suffered a "mild aggravation" of his groin injury on Saturday, and he's listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Hornets.

Memphis is already thin on the wings with Chandler Parsons (knee) out for at least the next two weeks, but they're unlikely to take any risks with Allen. Check back on Monday for updates, but if he does sit out there will be even more minutes available for Vince Carter and James Ennis.
Nov 20 - 6:49 PM

Tony Allen (groin) is available to play on Saturday.

He is still dealing with some aches from his groin injury and perhaps his older frame. Expect Allen to rest a bunch this season.
Nov 19 - 7:12 PM

Tony Allen (groin) is listed as probable to play Saturday vs. the Timberwolves.

Allen had missed four consecutive games before returning to the Grizz lineup on Friday. He played 18 minutes and scored 11 points. Allen was only averaging just 22 minutes per game before his injury, so he can safely be left on waiver wires.
Nov 19 - 1:13 PM

Tony Allen (groin) played 18 minutes in his return to action on Friday vs. Dallas, scoring 11 points with three rebounds, two steals and one block.

He shot 5-of-6 from the field and finally looked healthy. He had some minute restrictions tonight and it's possible the Grizzlies hold him out on Saturday vs. the Wolves on the second night of a back-to-back set to be safe. Allen can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Nov 19 - 12:35 AM

Tony Allen (groin) will play with a minutes restriction on Friday.

He is on the front end of a back-to-back set, so this is expected. Plus, Allen said he still has some aches from his groin injury. He'll take a few minutes away from James Ennis, so this situation is one to avoid in most leagues.
Nov 18 - 7:09 PM

Tony Allen (groin) will play Friday against the Mavs.

Allen had missed the last four games due to a nagging groin injury. He told reporters after shootaround on Friday that he feels "he feels no aches or pain." Allen is averaging only 22 minutes per game in the games he has appeared in this season. He can be left on the waiver wire in standard leagues.
Nov 18 - 1:29 PM

Tony Allen (groin) is questionable for Friday's game against the Mavs.

He has missed the last four games due to his groin strain. Allen is almost certainly going to sit out of one of the two back-to-back games. He'll need to show he can stay healthy before fantasy owners can pick him up.
