Tony Allen acknowledged that his minutes would likely fluctuate this season in New Orleans.
Allen started the vast majority of games he played in over the last five years with the Grizzlies but realizes that won't be the case with the Pelicans. "I'm going to be put in situations or lineups where some days I might start, some days I might play five minutes," Allen said. "It's just being ready to do whatever it takes for the team to win ball games." With Solomon Hill (hamstring) sidelined, the Pels needs Allen's defense, but he can still be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.
