Lavoy Allen (knee) will play Friday vs. the 76ers.
He's going to play limited minutes off the bench, and with averages of 6.5 points and 6.5 rebounds on the season, he's not going to do enough to warrant ownership in most leagues. Feb 20 - 12:41 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) is expected to play against the 76ers on Friday.

He was a game-time decision for their last game on Feb. 11, but didn't play. Allen should be ready to go and play as a backup center behind Roy Hibbert. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 18 - 7:33 PM

Lavoy Allen (sore right knee) has been ruled out vs. the Pelicans on Wednesday.

Allen has now missed six straight games and he'd logged a combined 16 minutes in the Pacers' previous eight games. The All-Star time comes at a great time, allowing his knee to fully recover, but there's no incentive to own him while Roy Hibbert, David West, Luis Scola and Ian Mahinmi are all healthy.
Feb 11 - 6:55 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) is a game-time decision for Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Ian Mahinmi (ankle) is also questionable, meaning Luis Scola could continue to see an uptick in minutes off the bench if Allen sits this one out. Considering that Allen wasn't in the rotation prior to suffering the knee injury, owners in most leagues can leave him on the wire.
Feb 11 - 1:34 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

Allen doesn't play enough minutes to matter in most leagues, so whether he plays or not should be of no concern for owners in standard leagues. If he's forced to sit, Luis Scola would pick up his reserve minutes, but he too is a negligible option in standard leagues.
Feb 10 - 3:55 PM

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

Allen also missed Sunday's affair, and he hasn't played since the calendar turned to February. There is currently no timetable for his return.
Feb 9 - 11:03 AM

Lavoy Allen (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Hornets.

With both Allen and Ian Mahinmi (ankle) unavailable for Sunday's game, Luis Scola will likely pick up most of their reserve minutes. However, with averages of 9.0 points and 6.2 rebounds on the season, Scola can't be viewed as a viable option in most leagues.
Feb 8 - 5:21 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) is questionable to play against the Hornets on Sunday.

He has missed the Pacers' last three games, but he has reportedly made some improvement in recent days. However, Allen wasn't a major part of the rotation prior to his injury so there is no need to add him in almost any league. If Allen continues to sit out, Luis Scola will see a few extra minutes off the bench.
Feb 7 - 1:56 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) will not play vs. the Cavaliers on Friday.

This will be his third straight game on the sidelines and the fact that Indiana ruled him out so quickly doesn't bode well for his status moving forward. Allen can now be dropped in almost all leagues, and with Ian Mahinmi also sidelined, Luis Scola will see a few extra minutes off the bench.
Feb 5 - 2:56 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Luis Scola and Ian Mahinmi will likely split most of Allen's reserve minutes, though neither guy can be considered a viable option in standard leagues.
Feb 3 - 2:50 PM

Lavoy Allen has a left knee strain and will be out for a little while.

He is out for at least the next two games and it could be until the All-Star Game. The Pacers may play more of Luis Scola to offset the loss. He's still not worth owning in most leagues, though.
Jan 31 - 6:10 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) will not play vs. the Kings on Saturday or against the Pistons on Wednesday.

Luis Scola was rested on Thursday, but Allen's injury will force coach Frank Vogel to give Scola some run. Chris Copeland may also step into the rotation with this news, but owners in most leagues are going to want to stay away from this situation. We will provide further updates prior to tip-off, but it's safe to cut Allen in most leagues.
Jan 31 - 11:13 AM

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

If Allen sits Chris Copeland will have the opportunity to step back into the rotation, but as a reserve playing behind David West, neither Allen nor Copeland can be expected to do enough statistically for consideration in most leagues.
Jan 30 - 1:08 PM

Lavoy Allen is dealing with sore right knee and will not return to Thursday's game against the Knicks.

He hobbled back to the locker room under his own power with only a slight limp. This injury doesn't sound serious, but the timing is interesting because he leapfrogged Luis Scola for the No. 2 power forward spot tonight. He left the game with eight points, five boards and one assist in nine minutes.
Jan 29 - 8:20 PM

Lavoy Allen played 33 minutes and started the second half due to the injury to Roy Hibbert (ankle), finishing with 12 points, nine rebounds and three assists.

He's likely going to start on Friday with Hibbert's ankle injury hindering him post-game. Allen is far from a fantasy dynamo due to the fact he doesn't block shots or do much else besides score or board. Fantasy owners in 14-team leagues can leave him on the wire, especially with Hibbert only day-to-day.
