Allen (knee) will be sidelined for Friday's game against the Nuggets.

EDGE Analysis

Allen was originally considered probable for the contest, so he may have suffered some sort of setback. The veteran has missed the team's previous three games with knee inflammation. His next chance to return to the court will be Monday against the Thunder.

Head coach Alvin Gentry said Allen (knee) will most likely play against the Nuggets on Friday, Will Guillory of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Allen has missed the team's previous three games with knee inflammation, but he's expected to be good to go after nearly a week off. The 35-year-old has averaged just 4.8 points and 2.2 rebounds across 13.6 minutes per game when healthy, so his return shouldn't mean much in fantasy terms.

Allen has averaged just 13.6 minutes per game, however, so his absence shouldn't have much of an impact on the regular rotation.

EDGE Analysis

Allen was originally omitted from the injury report, but the team provided an update indicating that he'll remain sidelined for a second straight contest.

Allen (ankle) is not listed on the injury report in advance of Wednesday's season opener against the Grizzlies.

EDGE Analysis

Allen missed the team's final preseason game with an ankle injury, though it appears he's shaken it off and will be ready for the opener. Considering the Pelicans' lack of depth, Allen should be a significant part of the rotation. Last year, he posted 9.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.4 assists across 27.0 minutes per game.

Allen (ankle) is expected to be available for Wednesday's season opener against the Grizzlies, Will Guillory of NOLA.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran had been battling an ankle injury, which kept him out of the preseason finale Friday, but it doesn't look to be anything serious, and the expectation is that he'll be available off the bench Wednesday. The 35-year-old is clearly past his prime, but he remains an effective perimeter defender when healthy and averaged 1.6 steals in 27.0 minutes per game last season for the Grizzlies.

Allen is dealing with left ankle soreness and has been ruled out for Friday's preseason finale against the Grizzlies.

EDGE Analysis

Considering it's just being listed as soreness, it doesn't sound like anything overly serious, though the Pelicans will play it safe with the 35-year-old veteran. He'll get the night off Friday, but will then have just under a week to get ready for the regular-season opener against the Grizzlies on Wednesday. Allen will likely be the first wing off the bench to start the year, though his role could decline a bit one Rajon Rondo (hernia) returns and Jrue Holiday slides back over to shooting guard.
