Tony Allen - G/F - Bulls

The Bulls have officially waived G/F Tony Allen.

Allen was acquired on February 1 in a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans, but was never part of the Bulls plans going forward. Allen will look to join a contender that gives him a chance to compete for a title. Even at 36 years of age, he can still bring perimeter defense to the table. However, his fantasy value is nonexistent and he should be left on waivers in all formats.

Tony Allen - G/F - Bulls

Tony Allen, Jameer Nelson and Omer Asik have been traded to the Bulls in exchange for Nikola Mirotic.

The Bulls are expected to waive Allen, as they are rebuilding and have no use for a 36-year-old veteran with very little left in the tank. It's not a lock that a contender will pick him up if he's waived and he still hasn't fully recovered from his fibula fracture.

Tony Allen - G/F - Bulls

Tony Allen (knee) will be available to play Tuesday against the Kings.

Allen missed nearly two months of action with the fibula fracture, so expect him to be eased into things very slowly. He's safe to leave on the waiver wire basically everywhere.
Jan 30 - 6:30 PM
Tony Allen - G/F - Bulls

Tony Allen (knee) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Kings.

Allen hasn't played since December 10, so if he is able to get back out there on Tuesday night, he'll likely have a strict minutes limit. He wasn't doing much prior to going down, so there's no incentive to grab him anywhere.
Jan 29 - 6:01 PM
Tony Allen - G/F - Bulls

Tony Allen (knee) suffered a setback in his recovery from the left fibula fracture and he will be on the sidelines for another 2-4 weeks.

Allen was reportedly on the cusp of a return, but he aggravated the fracture and now he could be out until February. Darius Miller and Dante Cunningham will continue to split his minutes, but neither of those guys are worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 10 - 7:52 PM
Tony Allen - G/F - Bulls

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 - G/F - Bulls

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 - G/F - Bulls

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 - G/F - Bulls

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 - G/F - Bulls

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.
Thu, Nov 30, 2017 01:07:00 AM
Tony Allen - G/F - Bulls

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.
Tue, Nov 28, 2017 05:14:00 PM
Tony Allen - G/F - Bulls

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 - G/F - Bulls

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 - G/F - Bulls

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.
