Lavoy Allen PF IND 12 Days

Allen scored 12 points (6-12 FG) to go along with 15 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 27 minutes Monday against the Jazz.

Monday marked Allen's first double-double of the season and tied his season-high for points. The Pacers have really needed him with all of their injuries this season, but don't expect him to be a major fantasy contributor on a nightly basis.

Allen had eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block over 26 minutes in Friday's loss to the Grizzlies.

Allen was largely an afterthought following his midseason acquisition by the Pacers in 2013-14, but with starting power forward David West (ankle) out for the beginning of the regular season, he's now being given the minutes necessary to make an impact. He was the only Pacer to grab double-digit rebounds in the contest, and now has 15 boards through the first two games of the season. Allen's minutes stand to be reduced when West returns to action, but his ability to take some of the rebounding pressure off center Roy Hibbert hasn't gone unnoticed, potentially earning him more meaningful minutes when the Pacers return to full strength.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
