Lavoy Allen pulled down a season-high 14 rebounds against the Celtics on Wednesday, adding eight points, two rebounds and no turnovers in 22 minutes.
His 22 minutes were the most he's played in a game this month and it was surprising to see him get so many important minutes. Of course, Allen won't have much value as long as Thaddeus Young is healthy. Mar 22 - 11:00 PM

Date:

Lavoy Allen (knee) was able to play 16 minutes in Sunday's 116-91 loss in Toronto, finishing with two points, three rebounds, a blocked shot, an assist and a steal.

Allen is stuck in the 15-20 minutes per game range and only worth using in the deepest of fantasy leagues when healthy. Thaddeus Young appears to be back on track after dealing with some struggles toward the end of February and the early part of March. As long Young continues to be effective it will keep Allen mostly on the bench.
Mar 19 - 8:51 PM

Lavoy Allen is available for Sunday against the Raptors.

He is not a total lock to play and the Pacers won't need him too much with Thaddeus Young playing better these days. Leave Allen on the wire.
Mar 19 - 5:04 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors.

Allen has been dealing with a balky knee for over a month now. He has been sidelined for each of the Pacers last two contests. Kevin Seraphin will likely continue to log additional minutes off the Indiana bench with Allen out. This is a situation fantasy owners should avoid.

Lavoy Allen (knee) will not play against the Hornets on Wednesday.

This knee injury has been bothering him since before the break and has cost him seven games. With Allen out again, we should see some smaller lineups and even some Kevin Seraphin.
Mar 15 - 5:30 PM

Lavoy Allen (sore left knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

Limited fantasy impact here, as Allen has only played in three of the Pacers last five games and is averaging just 10.0 minutes per game in the contests he has appeared in. Allen should be left on waivers.
Mar 14 - 6:34 PM

Lavoy Allen (sore left knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks.

Only minimal fantasy impact here, as Allen has played sparingly (28 total minutes) over the Pacers last five games. Al Jefferson may see a few extra minutes off the Pacers bench if Allen does not play.
Mar 14 - 12:48 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) scored two points with four rebounds and one foul in 12 minutes against the Pistons on Wednesday.

After missing Sunday and Monday, he was in the rotation with only five minutes in garbage time. As long as Thaddeus Young is active, Allen won't have value.
Mar 8 - 11:51 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) is active for Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons.

Allen gives Indiana extra depth to battle Andre Drummond and the Pistons' frontcourt. His return could chip away at the minutes of C.J. Miles and Thad Young, but this doesn't have major fantasy implications.
Mar 8 - 7:27 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Hornets.

Allen will miss his second straight game with left knee soreness. The Pacers played a lot of small ball on Sunday vs. the Hawks, so expect more of the same against the Hornets. C.J. Miles looks like the short-term winner with Allen out, but he is very inconsistent.
Mar 6 - 8:05 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Hornets.

He's dealing with left knee soreness, so this isn't the same knee that bothered him in February. Allen wasn't able to play on Sunday vs. the Hawks and the Pacers ended up playing a lot of small ball. There are no great fantasy pickups if Allen misses his second straight game, but C.J. Miles looked like the winner on Sunday with 13 points and three 3-pointers.
Mar 6 - 12:13 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) will not play on Sunday vs. the Hawks.

He's battling left knee soreness, so it's not the same knee that bothered him in early February. With Allen out, the Pacers may have to rely on Thaddeus Young a bit more even though he hasn't exactly been lighting it up -- Young has been limited by a wrist issue and has been held to single-digit points in three straight games.
Mar 5 - 11:43 AM

Lavoy Allen (knee) scored 10 points with 10 rebounds, one steal and one block in 21 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

He picked up most of the backup power forward minutes and turned in a very nice game against the bigger Memphis frontcourt. Thaddeus Young looked fine and should play more, so leave Allen on the wire.
Feb 24 - 9:59 PM

Lavoy Allen (right knee) is probable for Friday against the Grizzlies.

Thaddeus Young (wrist) is also expected to come back, so Allen is likely just going to be a backup. He's played reasonably well and should still be looking at minutes in the teens tonight.
Feb 24 - 3:34 PM

Lavoy Allen (knee) is questionable to play against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

He's been a fine fill-in power forward with Thaddeus Young (wrist) out for most of this month. If Allen and Young can't go, Kevin Seraphin should get another chance as the starter.
