Coach Nate McMillan said Lavoy Allen is "going to have to make me play him with what he does on the floor."
Allen previously said he's hoping for a double-double average, so that seems just a little unlikely. With Myles Turner locked in to bigger minutes, Al Jefferson backing him up, and C.J. Miles slated to play more four, there's not much here for Allen. Sep 26 - 5:55 PM

Lavoy Allen said that if he gets the opportunity, his goal for the upcoming season is to average a double double.

"We could go small. You don’t know what can happen," said Allen. "But I think one of the things that I do best is rebounding, and I think I can rebound with the best of them. I just try to get a double double every time I get out there." With the offseason additions of Thaddeus Young and Al Jefferson, this goal of Allen's is extremely unlikely to be realized. He owns career averages of 5.1 points and 5.0 boards per contest, and there's really not a league out there where Allen should be a draft day target.
Sep 7 - 10:44 AM

Lavoy Allen moved to the bench on Saturday with no stats in three minutes.

He would not have played if not for garbage time. Allen can be ignored everywhere.
Apr 23 - 6:21 PM

Lavoy Allen will come off the bench on Saturday vs. the Raptors.

Allen failed to score in nine minutes in Game 3, so the Pacers will move Myles Turner into the starting lineup. Coach Frank Vogel doesn't trust Jordan Hill, so Allen should still be in the rotation. Fantasy owners should not trust Allen in lineups.
Apr 23 - 1:25 PM

Lavoy Allen played 14 minutes in a start against the Raptors on Saturday, scoring four points with seven rebounds.

Assuming he does stick in the starting lineup, Allen is likely just going to play the first stint of each half and that's it. Plus, his usage rate will be tiny in the first unit.
Apr 16 - 4:08 PM

The Pacers will start George Hill, Monta Ellis, Paul George, Lavoy Allen and Ian Mahinmi against the Raptors.

The Pacers small lineups were beaten up against the Raptors, so this makes sense. That means we'll likely see Myles Turner get minutes at center. Allen won't be a fantasy option.
Apr 15 - 2:49 PM

Lavoy Allen had seven points, one rebound and two assists in 21 minutes on Wednesday, and he was shifted to a reserve role after halftime.

Allen was benched in favor of Solomon Hill and wound up playing just nine minutes in the third and fourth quarters. He hasn't blocked a shot in five games and is persona non grata for fantasy purposes.
Apr 6 - 10:07 PM

Lavoy Allen scored two points with one rebound in 13 minutes during a start against the 76ers on Saturday.

No revenge game for Allen here. The Pacers didn't really look good while he was out there, but coach Frank Vogel could stick with the new lineup. Allen isn't worth owning almost anywhere.
Apr 2 - 10:29 PM

Lavoy Allen will start on Saturday vs. the 76ers with Myles Turner moving to the bench.

The Pacers are looking for a spark as they try to secure a playoff spot, and Allen had a nice game on Thursday with 12 points, 11 rebounds, two assists and two steals. However, he's posted averages of 5.5 points and 5.5 boards in 21 previous starts this season, so there isn't much upside here. For now, he's only on the radar in deeper leagues.
Apr 2 - 12:31 PM

Lavoy Allen (sore left knee) is not on the injury report for Saturday's game vs. the Mavericks.

He's had a full five days to recover since he sat out of Monday's game, so he will likely see his normal workload off the bench. He usually gets minutes in the teens, so he's not a good fantasy option.
Mar 12 - 1:15 PM

Lavoy Allen (sore left knee) will not play against the Spurs on Monday night.

He may have dealt with some soreness during warmups because he wasn't on the injury report until this news item came across. Allen's absence should give more minutes to Solomon Hill, Jordan Hill and maybe a few more minutes to Myles Turner.
Mar 7 - 6:19 PM

Lavoy Allen scored 13 points with 14 rebounds and one block in 30 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

It's just his second double-double for Allen. While Ian Mahinmi (back) could miss more time, Allen is still only a desperation add right now due to very little output beyond scoring and boards.
Feb 5 - 10:08 PM

Lavoy Allen played 25 minutes and hit 6-of-12 shots for 12 points, eight rebounds and a block in Wednesday's win.

Jordan Hill started at center, but played just 19 minutes to finish with six points and four rebounds, while Allen and Myles Turner both played big minutes. Ian Mahinmi (back) should be back soon, meaning Allen and Hill should go away quietly in the near future. Allen had a total of 12 points and 13 rebounds in his previous two games, but will be an afterthought once Mahinmi is back.
Feb 3 - 11:32 PM

Lavoy Allen will return to the bench for Friday's game vs. Golden State, with Solomon Hill earning his first start of the year.

Neither Allen nor Hill offer much fantasy value out all, and both guys can safely be ignored in most leagues.
Jan 22 - 9:58 PM

Lavoy Allen played 20 minutes off the bench against the Wizards on Friday with 15 points, three rebounds and one assist.

He's been starting since C.J. Miles suffered a shoulder injury back on Jan. 4, but moved back to the bench in this matchup. Allen doesn't have great fantasy output per minute anyway. He's only worth owning in deep leagues.
