Allen came off the bench and provided 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one block across 19 minutes Sunday in the Nets' 110-107 win over the Bulls.
Former coach Kenny Atkinson had already been splitting the center minutes between Allen and DeAndre Jordan, but the 21-year-old's fantasy outlook may be even worse under new bench boss Jacque Vaughn. In his first game at the helm, Vaughn immediately swapped Allen out of the starting five in favor of Jordan, who posted a double-double (11 points, 15 rebounds) to go with three blocks in 29 minutes. The 29-34 Nets' decision to prioritize the 31-year-old Jordan may be a questionable one, but if it persists, Allen will be tough to hold in standard leagues.
Allen will come off the bench in Sunday's game against the Bulls, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
After starting in each of the Nets' previous 29 games and in all but four of his 62 appearances on the season, Allen will shift to the second unit in what represents interim coach Jacque Vaughn's first major change since replacing Kenny Atkinson on the bench. Even before Atkinson was fired, Allen had been stuck in a loose timeshare with newly appointed starter DeAndre Jordan, averaging 25.9 minutes per game to the latter's 21.8. While Allen's demotion from the starting five seemingly isn't a positive sign, fantasy managers may want to see how the playing time between the two centers shakes out for a couple of games before considering dropping the 21-year-old from their rosters.
Allen had five points (1-2 FG, 3-6 FT), eight rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes during Wednesday's 110-106 loss to the Wizards.
Allen finished with more fouls than points and more turnovers (two) than assists. After earning the majority of minutes at center in each of the first several months this season, Allen has been overshadowed by DeAndre Jordan here in February.
Allen scored 16 points (8-8 FG, 0-1 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal in 26 minutes during Monday's 115-113 loss to the Magic.
The clanked free throw ruined his perfect shooting night, but otherwise, Allen thrived on cleaning up misses by the Nets' shooters. The third-year center has double-doubles in three of the last four games, but his zero-point, two-board performance in the fourth game highlights his volatility as a fantasy asset.
Allen finished with zero points (0-4 FG), two rebounds and two turnovers in 13 minutes during Brooklyn's 112-104 loss to the 76ers on Thursday.
Allen failed to finish his attempts around the basket and could not combat the physicality of Joel Embiid, leading to increased run for DeAndre Jordan. Allen had an alarming minus-15 in his 13 minutes. Regardless of the (extreme) off night, he'll remain a key fixture of the Nets' rotations.
Allen ended up with 10 points (3-6 FG, 4-5 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists and one block in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 101-91 win over the Raptors.
Allen had a solid outing but has now earned 20 minutes or less in four straight games. Overall, he's still averaging career highs in most statistical categories, but it may be tough for him to maintain those career highs if he doesn't start earning more minutes than DeAndre Jordan on a more consistent basis. Still, Allen is already up to 23 double-doubles through 53 appearances this season, this after logging 24 across 80 games in 2018-19.
Allen had three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 FT), six rebounds and one steal in 19 minutes during Saturday's 119-118 loss to the Raptors.
Allen took a back seat to DeAndre Jordan, who racked up 15 points, 14 boards and three blocks in 29 minutes. Allen has combined to play 37 minutes across the last two contests, so it's clear coach Kenny Atkinson is willing to stick with the hot hand. Even still, Allen is usually the superior option for fantasy purposes.
Allen managed 20 points (8-13 FG, 4-6 FT), 15 rebounds, four blocks, an assist and a steal in 40 minutes during Saturday's 121-111 win over the Pistons.
The third-year center made an immediate impact on defense, stuffing Detroit rookie Sekou Doumbouya twice and star Andre Drummond once for three blocks within the game's first seven minutes. The 21-year-old would proceed to achieve just his third double-double with at least 20 points and 15 rebounds. Allen is averaging near double-double numbers this season and will look to continue his pace on the road Sunday against New York, where he scored 18 points and grabbed 10 boards the last time he played at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 24.
Allen had seven points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds and one block in 30 minutes during Thursday's loss to the Lakers.
Allen should continue to see a slightly larger role due to DeAndre Jordan being forced to the sidelines with a dislocated finger. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, he flopped in this one, struggling from the field, and finding himself unable to contribute much outside of those eight rebounds against Dwight Howard and Anthony Davis. The 21-year old has been a strong, shallow league-relevant player this season, but can raise his stock even higher if he avoids outings like this one, and starts to show the consistency from the free-throw line that we've seen from him over the previous two years.
Allen scored 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 FT) and added 13 rebounds along with two assists, one steal and a block across 31 minutes Monday against Philadelphia.
Allen made the most of his opportunities Monday, finishing in double figures after attempting just eight shots. He was also a force on the boards, securing 13 rebounds, though the Nets would fall 117-111. Allen has registered 10 or more rebounds in five of his last six games, collecting four double-doubles over that stretch.
Allen had 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-7 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 24 minutes during Sunday's 108-86 win over the Hawks.
The fact that Allen has racked up double-doubles in consecutive games should represent a boost moving forward, as he averaged 9.5 points and 8.2 boards in the 11 games prior to these back-to-back double-doubles. Even if he has been inconsistent of late, Allen should remain a reliable fantasy asset in most formats due to decent rebounding stats and strong field-goal percentage.
Allen had 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, a block and a steal in 28 minutes during Friday's 117-113 win over the Heat.
Allen only needed three quarters for all his scoring and rebounding, despite going cold statistically with a close contest in the fourth. It's still an encouraging sign, considering that the 21-year-old started from the bench Jan. 2 for poor performances and averaged pedestrian numbers (eight points and 6.7 rebounds) since returning to the starting five. The center's next game is Sunday with Atlanta, a team he dominated for 20 points and 13 rebounds on Dec. 4, a collective feat achieved only three times this season.
Allen posted 12 points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 111-103 loss to the Thunder.
Allen opened the month by coming off the bench for the first time since Nov. 2, but he's been in his usual starting role over the past three games, averaging 8.0 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.3 blocks, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal in 27.7 minutes. His inconsistent production is sure to frustrate fantasy owners, especially in daily formats, but Allen remains one of the better sources of rebounds and blocks in the NBA, not to mention his efficient shooting. Allen has six performances this season with at least 10 rebounds and two blocks on 60-plus percent shooting. Only Richaun Holmes, Steven Adams, Rudy Gobert, Clint Capela and Hassan Whiteside have more games reaching those thresholds.
Allen had nine points and six rebounds in 25 minutes during Thursday's 123-111 loss to the Mavericks.
Allen, who has been struggling of late, was shifted to the bench Thursday. Despite playing 25 minutes, he still managed very little during his time on the floor. It is unclear whether this was simply a matchup based move or if the coaching staff are thinking long-term. Either way, those with Allen on their roster should not panic but may have to show a little patience moving forward.
Allen will come off the bench Thursday against the Mavericks, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
Allen has been held to six or fewer points in three of his last four contests, so the Nets will change up their starting five. DeAndre Jordan draws the start at center in Allen's place.
Allen had 19 points (7-10 FG, 5-5 FT), 13 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes during Thursday's 118-105 loss at San Antonio.
Allen dished out a career-high mark in assists, but he has been a monster on the glass after grabbing 10 or more rebounds in 12 of his last 13 games. He is also coming off back-to-back double-doubles, and he will aim to extend that solid run of play Saturday against the Hawks.
Allen collected 12 points (6-7 FG), 14 rebounds, six blocks and one assist in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 108-101 overtime win against the Pelicans.
Allen matched his career high in blocks while turning in his 14th double-double across 27 appearances this season. He's well on his way to surpassing his previous record of 24 double-doubles across 80 appearances as a sophomore in 2018-19, as Allen has a firm grip on the starting center gig despite the offseason addition of veteran big man DeAndre Jordan.
Allen had eight points (3-9 FG, 2-2 FT), eight boards and one assist in 22 minutes during Sunday's 109-89 win over the 76ers.
Allen failed to grab double-digit rebounds for the first time in his last 11 games, and he surprisingly struggled with his shot, failing to make half of his attempts for the first time in his last six games. He will try to bounce back Tuesday at New Orleans.
Allen totaled 21 points (7-9 FG, 7-11 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one block in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 113-108 loss to the Hornets.
Allen continues to put up big numbers for the Nets' despite what was a tough home loss. He has been fantastic over the past month and has been a top-30 player in that period. There had been concerns early in the season that DeAndre Jordan would hurt the development of Allen. Those fears have been laid to rest despite Jordan being called upon in certain matchup situations. Allen is unlikely to be a top-30 player moving forward, however, the top-60 would seem well within reach.
Allen had 19 points (7-13 FG, 5-8 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Sunday's 105-102 win against the Nuggets.
Allen has grabbed 10-plus rebounds in 10 of his last 11 games, but he is also scoring at a decent rate since he has scored 10-plus points in all of those games but one. Entrenched as the team's starting center over DeAndre Jordan, Allen will try to continue his strong run of form Wednesday at home against the Hornets.
