Lavoy Allen is not expected to play for the Pacers unless injuries strike the frontcourt.
"I have to be prepared and come in here and get some extra conditioning and be ready when my name is called," said Allen. He gives Indiana some frontcourt insurance as they march toward the playoffs, but fantasy owners should ignore him while Roy Hibbert is healthy. Feb 24 - 2:15 PM

Lavoy Allen was traded to the Pacers on Thursday.

He'll go from what would have been a key rotational role with Philly to a bench-warming big on the contending Pacers. If you picked up Allen based on the Spencer Hawes deal, you can go ahead and let him go at your earliest convenience. Additionally, the Sixers still have 16 players on their roster and would have to cut one more player.
Feb 20 - 3:46 PM

Lavoy Allen will get more playing time with the Sixers.

He has primarily been a backup power forward this season, but the Sixers have asked him to play some center, as well. Allen has played 22.2 minutes per game over his last five, averaging 6.4 points, 6.4 boards, 0.4 blocks and 1.0 steals on just 36.8 shooting from the field. He's a a somewhat safe add in deeper leagues, but the low ceiling shouldn't be very attractive in standard leagues.
Feb 20 - 11:42 AM

Lavoy Allen is dealing with left knee soreness on Wednesday and is questionable to return.

He had some knee issues last season and there is no word on how bad his soreness is. The Sixers will likely give more minutes to Arnett Moultrie, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Feb 12 - 10:57 PM

Lavoy Allen nearly double-doubled off the bench on Friday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting with nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 28 minutes.

This is one of the better lines you'll see out of Allen and it's enough to give him some 14-team value in 9-cat formats over the past week on the strength of just 0.8 giveaways per game. That's an improvement over his usual production, so naturally he's only worth a look in the deepest of leagues.
Feb 7 - 10:52 PM

Lavoy Allen double-doubled off the bench in Friday's blowout loss, scoring 11 points on 5-of-10 shooting with 10 rebounds, one steal and one block in just 21 minutes.

Allen and Hollis Thompson (seven points, one three, one steal, 25 minutes) were possible replacements in the starting lineup for Spencer Hawes and James Anderson, and after getting throttled tonight it's fair to wonder if some sort of change is made. We don't expect big minute changes among this group, and even with this decent line owners can watch this action from the wire in the vast majority of formats.
Feb 1 - 12:27 AM

Lavoy Allen (calf) played on Saturday against the Bulls, scoring six points on 3-of-7 shooting with three rebounds and two blocks in 15 minutes.

This isn't a bad line by Allen's standards and needless to say he needs to show a whole lot more before most owners should pay him any attention.
Jan 18 - 11:24 PM

Lavoy Allen is dealing with a sore left knee in addition to his right calf injury, but he's hopeful to return vs. the Bulls on Saturday.

Allen said that he feels fine in half-court situations but feels pain whenever he's asked to sprint. With Arnett Moultrie (ankle) nearing a return and Dewayne Dedmon fighting for another 10-day contract, there's no real upside for Allen's fantasy value.

Lavoy Allen (calf) will miss Friday's game against Miami.

Allen was spotted working out on the anti-gravity treadmill at Friday's practice, but will target Saturday's game against the Bulls for his return. We'll update Allen's status for Saturday's game as it becomes available, but he does not warrant any attention from fantasy owners in anything but the deepest of leagues.
Jan 17 - 11:34 AM

Lavoy Allen (strained calf) will not play on Wednesday.

He remains day-to-day but his availability doesn't have a major fantasy impact one way or the other. With Arnett Moultrie (ankle) also unavailable on Wednesday, the Sixers may give significant minutes to D-League callup Dewayne Dedmon.
Jan 15 - 12:35 PM

Lavoy Allen (strained right calf) has been ruled out for Saturday's game.

The 76ers host the Knicks in the second game of a back-to-back set. Without Allen's help off the bench, they'll rely more on starters Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young, as well as backup PF Brandon Davies.

Lavoy Allen (calf) will not play against the Pistons on Friday.

He suffered a calf injury earlier this week and missed some practice time. Allen played just 14.6 minutes per game over his last five, averaging 6.2 points and 3.8 boards per game. He has very little fantasy value.
Jan 10 - 5:21 PM

76ers big man Lavoy Allen is questionable for Friday's game due to a calf injury.

Allen has impressed coach Brett Brown with his steady improvement this season, but his averages of 5.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.5 blocks make him a non-entity in standard fantasy leagues. The timing of his calf injury is poor since Philly is about to play the Pistons' frontcourt on Friday.
Jan 9 - 1:50 PM

76ers coach Brett Brown is pleased with the recent play of backup center Lavoy Allen, who has reportedly lost 10 pounds.

Allen scored 13 points in 16 minutes on Wednesday and has slowly clawed his way back into the frontcourt picture for Philly. "He's just been solid," Brown said. "His mobility is up." Allen's size gives the Sixers a different look against guys like DeMarcus Cousins and Roy Hibbert, but he's not a fantasy option and his role will be further endangered once Arnett Moultrie (ankle) is healthy enough to play.
Jan 5 - 1:38 PM

Lavoy Allen played 26 minutes while navigating foul trouble in a rare start on Saturday, finishing with four points, nine rebounds and two blocks.

He started because Spencer Hawes was out with a sore knee, but with Hawes day-to-day it's hard to recommend Allen outside of deep leagues, even as a temporary pickup. It doesn't help that Hawes has three full days to recover before Philly's next game in Orlando on Wednesday.
