Allen played in 72 games during his rookie campaign in 2017-18 and averaged 8.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game.
Allen had a fabulous first season with Brooklyn as he was a dependable paint presence for them all season long. The former Texas Longhorn produced four double-doubles with his best game coming Jan. 31 where he scored 16 and added 12 boards. In 2018-19, Allen will be entering the second year of his rookie contract for a guaranteed $2 million.
Allen had just four points (2-6 FG), but added 10 rebounds, five blocks and two assists in 31 minutes during Thursday's 119-111 victory over the Bucks.
Allen swatted a career-high five shots Thursday, helping the Nets to an impressive road victory over the Bucks. The scoring was not there but his defensive presence was there for all to see, even denying Giannis Antetokounmpo at the rim in the dying seconds. He also recorded at least 30 minutes of playing time for the second time in his last three games. Owners will be hoping that this is a sign of things to come for the final games of the regular season.
Allen had 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six rebounds and three blocks in 30 minutes during Sunday's 108-96 loss to Detroit.
Allen saw his playing time his the 30-minute mark for the first time March 1. In a matchup with the more experienced Andre Drummond, Allen was able to keep him to a quiet double-double. Despite the inconsistent playing time over the past few weeks, he has emerged as one of the elite shot blockers in the league with a combined 21 blocks over his previous nine games. He is not a must-own player but most certainly has some upside and is worth a long hard look if you need some blocks with good percentages.
Allen totaled six points (3-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), nine rebounds, and four blocks in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 111-105 loss to the Hornets.
Allen matched his career high in blocks, swatting four for the third time this season (and second time in the last three tilts). His offensive game remains raw and is mostly limited to catching and finishing at the rim. However, the rookie's overall development is clearly a priority for the franchise, so expect him to continue seeing ample minutes across the last 10 contests of 2017-18.
Allen (foot) is starting at center for Friday's contest against the 76ers, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.
Allen missed the team's last game Tuesday against the Raptors, but has had enough time to recover. It's unlikely he'll have any restrictions, and his re-insertion into the starting five will push Dante Cunningham to the bench.
