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.
Jan 15 - 9:27 PM

Lavoy Allen will come off the bench on Friday vs. the Wizards.

The Wizards start Jared Dudley at the four, so the Pacers will shift Paul George to the four and will start C.J. Miles at the three. Allen is better suited for deeper leagues anyways.
Jan 15 - 11:17 AM

Lavoy Allen started Wednesday's game but failed to score in 18 minutes, missing all three of his shot attempts while grabbing four rebounds and turning the ball over twice.

Indiana's defense has been terrific in 2016, holding opponents to 93.5 points on 39.2 percent shooting, and it was their offense that let them down tonight. Allen's starting gig is continuously threatened by C.J. Miles, and tonight's dud is the latest evidence that he won't help fantasy owners.
Jan 14 - 12:29 AM

Lavoy Allen will start against the Magic on Wednesday.

It's not a surprising move with C.J. Miles (shoulder) banged up for tonight. Allen doesn't gain much value here.
Jan 6 - 6:58 PM

Lavoy Allen is expected to start at power forward on Monday.

The Pacers will go big against Miami, meaning C.J. Miles will come off the bench unless George Hill (food poisoning) is unable to give it a go. As a starter, Allen is averaging 6.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 0.5 steals and 0.5 blocks on 50.8 percent shooting over 11 contests.
Jan 4 - 12:34 PM

Lavoy Allen made 7-of-8 from the field for 14 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 26 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday.

He had easy shots all night as the Bucks basically left him open. Allen is going to need to be this efficient to have decent value because he doesn't block shots. Plus, Ian Mahinimi (knee) should be back soon. He's not a great add.

Lavoy Allen and C.J. Miles (back) will start on Thursday.

Allen is starting at center in place of Ian Mahinmi, who is currently day-to-day with a minor knee sprain. Unless you're desperate for a big, Allen is only worth a look for owners in deeper leagues. Myles Turner will be the backup center vs. the Bucks.
Thu, Dec 31, 2015 04:40:00 PM

Lavoy Allen started at PF on Wednesday with C.J. Miles (back) unavailable, and he posted 10 points, 12 rebounds and one steal in 38 minutes vs. the Bulls.

Allen shot 5-of-7 from the field with only one turnover, and four of his boards came on the offensive end tonight, as he accumulated his second double-double of the season. Miles is day-to-day and Allen's role is too mercurial to rely on in standard leagues. Just keep an eye on him in case Ian Mahinmi's 'sore knee' proves to be serious.
Thu, Dec 31, 2015 12:58:00 AM

Lavoy Allen will start on Monday vs. the Hawks.

The Pacers are going with their big lineup due to the size of the Hawks. Allen averages 5.6 points, 5.6 boards, 1.1 assists and 0.6 blocks as a starter, so he is only an option in deeper leagues. C.J. Miles will likely come off the bench unless Monta Ellis (knee) can't play.
Mon, Dec 28, 2015 06:10:00 PM

Lavoy Allen will come off the bench against the Kings on Wednesday.

His minutes are almost identical when he starts and when he comes off the bench, so the lineup changes don't affect Allen much. He's only worth using in very deep leagues.
Wed, Dec 23, 2015 05:31:00 PM

Lavoy Allen returned to the bench on Friday with eight points, five boards and one block in 21 minutes.

He tends to play a little bit less off the bench and is rarely involved in the offense. Allen isn't worth owning in most formats.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 09:40:00 PM

Lavoy Allen will return to a bench role vs. the Nets on Friday.

C.J. Miles will resume his spot in the starting lineup, and Allen isn't a palatable standard-league option in a reserve role. He rolled his ankle during Wednesday's game but was never in jeopardy of missing any games.
