Lavoy Allen PF IND 19 Hrs

Allen (knee) will miss at least the next two games, the Indianapolis Star's Candace Buckner reports.

This rules Allen out for Saturday and Wednesday, with Friday, Feb. 6 against Cleveland being the first potential return date. He was barely in the rotation prior to the injury, so this will have little effect on the minutes in the Pacers' frontcourt.

Allen (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Kings.

He had only been playing sparingly prior to sustaining the minor knee injury, so there should not be a far-reaching fantasy fallout due to his absence. Consider him day-to-day.

Allen (knee) is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Kings.

Allen left Thursday's game against Knicks with a sore right knee after only playing for nine minutes. If he's unable to play Saturday, Damjan Rudez could see increased time on the court.

Allen only spent nine minutes on the court against the Knicks on Thursday after leaving the game with a sore right knee.

Allen's status for Saturday's game against the Kings is in serious question since the Pacers won't play again until Wednesday, meaning that he would get five days of rest if he sits Saturday. Nevertheless, his status for Saturday's game should be updated after the morning shootaround.

Allen left Thursday's game against the Knicks with a sore right knee and is questionable to return, the Indianapolis Star reports.

Allen played 9:24 before leaving the game, finishing with eight points on 4-5 shooting and adding five rebounds and one assist. It's unclear exactly what the ailment is, but it likely puts his status in question for Saturday's game against the Kings.

Allen finished Wednesday's game with 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and three assists in 33 minutes.

With Roy Hibbert's (ankle) injury, Allen could see some more minutes at the center position. Allen started the second half with Hibbert unable to return to the game. Luis Scola could also see some extra time if the big guy has to sit out for awhile. Allen is averaging 6.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists and .9 blocks in 22 minutes per game this season.

Allen scored 14 points (7-11 FG) with 13 rebounds and two assists in 36 minutes off the bench Wednesday.

Both David West and Roy Hibbert were ineffective and got nailed to the bench in the fourth quarter, which afforded Allen huge minutes. It's his third double-double of the season, but don't expect a repeat performance any time soon.

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.
