Tony Allen SG/SF MEM 12 Days

Tony Allen admitted that he's been struggling lately on both offense and defense, which has led to limited playing time off the Grizzlies' bench.

"We're sitting there with five wings and trying to figure out which [to play]," said coach Dave Joerger, explaining his decision to limit Allen's minutes. "It's been a conundrum all season long, especially since [Allen] came back [from his wrist injury] and after the [Courtney Lee] trade." The Grizzlies are one game out of the playoffs, with five games left in the regular season, so they'll need Allen to find his rhythm very quickly or risk missing the playoffs for the first time since 2009-10.

Tony Allen returned from an illness and played 10 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, missing all five of his shots and failing to score in a win over the Jazz.

Allen and Courtney Lee have become completely useless, as Mike Miller is now making noise for the Grizzlies. Make sure Allen and Lee are not in your lineup right now, and think about dropping them for a hot free agent in most instances.

Tony Allen will not play against the Wolves on Monday due to a stomach illness.

He has logged 21.8 minutes per game in March and the Grizzlies will likely call on a couple guys to fill the void. James Johnson and Tayshaun Prince might see a little more action while Courtney Lee has a good chance to clear the 30-minute barrier and put up a nice line against a weak defense tonight. Allen should be considered questionable for Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

Tony Allen scored 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting (5-of-6 FTs) with four rebounds, three steals and one block in 25 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

Allen has not been worth owning over the last week or so but he outproduced timeshare buddy Courtney Lee (four points, 1-of-6 FGs) tonight. Lee has been the better player to own most of the time since they've started splitting minutes and we're not going to swing the needle Allen's way after just one night. Allen is still just a speculative add in 14-team leagues at this time.

Tony Allen was quiet in his 25 minutes off the bench on Friday, scoring six points on 2-of-6 shooting with five rebounds and two steals.

This is the hard part about coming off the bench, though his minutes were higher than normal tonight. Allen has been somewhat productive in his limited role, but if you have your eye on even a low-level free agent it's fine to make a move.

Tony Allen hit 5-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, six rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

Starter Courtney Lee hit just 2-of-7 shots for four points and zero 3-pointers, while James Johnson scored 12 points in just 14 minutes. Allen was dealing with an illness tonight, but looked good. However, with Johnson back from an ankle injury and Lee starting, Allen could struggle for consistency going forward. But he's been playing well and we'd recommend sticking with him until the wheels come off.

Tony Allen's efficient run kept rolling on Saturday vs. the Cavs, shooting 7-of-10 from the field for 16 points with two boards, one block and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

His hand rehab must have worked wonders, shooting a pristine 70.3 percent over his five games since returning from injury to go with averages of 11.4 points, 4.6 boards, 0.8 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 triples. Allen's steals, boards and field goal percentage make him worth owning in standard leagues.

Tony Allen was quiet in just 17 minutes off the bench on Friday, scoring six points on 3-of-3 shooting with three rebounds, three assists and one steal.

Allen started off strong in his limited role off the bench but tonight was certainly a momentum stopper in that regard. He needs to climb back up the mountain with some consistency before 12-14 team owners should go out of their way to add him.

Tony Allen shot 8-of-13 from the field for 17 points vs. the Lakers on Wednesday with six boards and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

He's been outstanding since returning from his hand injury, averaging 11.7 points, 1.0 steals and 0.7 triples on 66.7 percent from the field. Allen is putting up early-round value since coming back, so he's worth owning in standard leagues right now.
