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. Jan 8 - 1:34 AM

Lavoy Allen played well in his 32 minutes against the Bulls on Monday with six points, eight rebounds, five assists and four blocks.

He is backing up Roy Hibbert and the two are basically the only two guys getting minutes at center. Therefore, Allen is going to get more minutes on the nights Bad Hibbert shows up. While fantasy owners can't really grab Allen in most cases now, Allen can be considered as a Hibbert handcuff since his coach trusts him a little more.

Lavoy Allen had 12 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks on 6-of-11 shooting off the bench in 31 minutes on Wednesday.

Roy Hibbert was dreadful tonight and Allen picked up his slack. Allen had scored six or fewer points in his three previous games, so it's doubtful that he does this again in the next one. But if Hibbert is ever benched or injured, Allen will be the guy you'll want to pick up.

Lavoy Allen had 14 points and 13 rebounds on 7-of-11 shooting in 36 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

The points and minutes were both season highs for Allen this season, which happened because Roy Hibbert was ineffective and in foul trouble, and lasted just 12 minutes before being benched. We seriously doubt Allen is going to threaten Hibbert's job, at least in the long term, but after tonight, most Pacer bench players have our attention.

Lavoy Allen moved into the backup center role on Monday with eight points, three rebounds and one block in 19 minutes.

Ian Mahinmi (foot) is out for up to eight weeks, so Allen will take over behind Roy Hibbert. If Hibbert goes down, Allen might be a pickup. For now, he can be left on the wire.

Lavoy Allen double-doubled off the bench on Friday, scoring 10 points on 5-of-11 shooting with 14 rebounds, one steal and one block in 28 minutes.

Allen took from Ian Mahinmi's (six points, five boards, 19 minutes) playing time tonight and neither player is worth betting on in daily leagues while Roy Hibbert is out.

Lavoy Allen, who had 12 points and 15 rebounds against the Jazz on Monday, had just six points, seven boards, a steal and a block on Wednesday.

His big night on Monday was a fluke, but the Pacers are thin enough that he deserves some attention. Just keep an eye on Allen going forward.

Lavoy Allen busted out with a 12-point, 15-board double-double against the Jazz on Monday, adding three assists, one steal and one block in 27 minutes.

He easily outplayed Luis Scola tonight and his six offensive rebounds went a long way for the Pacers tonight. Allen has been extremely quiet all season and his upside isn't going to be high anyway because he doesn't block shots, so it's hard to get too excited here. School had just eight points, eight rebounds and one block in 25 minutes.

Lavoy Allen put together a nice game in 29 minutes on Tuesday, scoring eight points with 12 rebounds (seven offensive) and a pair of blocks vs. the visiting Bucks.

Allen has earned high praise from coach Frank Vogel since training camp and he's overtaken Ian Mahinmi (six points in eight minutes) in the backup frontcourt rotation. Neither guy has value in standard leagues while Roy Hibbert is healthy, but Allen is at least worth keeping on your radar.

Lavoy Allen just missed a double-double off the bench on Friday with eight points, 10 boards, one assist, one block and one steal in 26 minutes.

He is getting some run at power forward, so he'll be losing most of his minutes upon the return of David West (ankle). Allen is only worth a look as a very short-term spot-start.

Lavoy Allen had "one of the best preseasons" of any Pacers player, according to coach Frank Vogel.

Allen impressed Vogel enough that he bumped Chris Copeland out of the PF rotation to SF, and it sounds like he'll be the primary backup behind starter Luis Scola on Wednesday. He's only worth monitoring in deep leagues, and is unlikely to earn many minutes once David West (ankle) returns to health.
Wed, Oct 29, 2014 06:17:00 PM

Lavoy Allen played 21 minutes during a 98-93 win over the Mavs on Saturday with eight points, one rebound, two assists and two steals.

He could get in the rotation now with David West (ankle) possibly missing some time. Fantasy owners can ignore Allen in just about all leagues, though.
Sat, Oct 18, 2014 10:06:00 PM

Lavoy Allen re-signed with the Pacers late Friday night.

The terms of the deal are not disclosed yet, but it's likely a short-term offer. Allen did not play very often since his trade from the 76ers last season, averaging just 8.0 minutes per game in his 14 games with the Pacers. He'll just serve as emergency depth.

Lavoy Allen is an unrestricted free agent following the Pacers' decision not to give him a $3.8 million qualifying offer.

Allen had a quiet 2013-14 season during which he struggled with various injuries and questions about his conditioning. He plans to play for the Pacers' Summer League team and may still sign with Indy, but he won't earn $3.8 million per year.
Tue, Jul 1, 2014 04:43:00 PM

Lavoy Allen plans to attend Pacers rookie/free agent camp next week and it sounds likely that he'll play on their Summer League team.

Allen was traded to the Pacers last February but saw extremely limited minutes. Even if he has a good camp and summer, it's hard to see him making much noise if he ends up on the Pacers roster once the regular season rolls around.
