Tony Allen (leg) expected to miss three-to-four weeks for Pelicans

New Orleans Pelicans guard Tony Allen (leg) will miss the next three-to-four weeks with a non-displaced left proximal fibula fracture.

What It Means:

Allen has played sparingly all month, and he has been forced to miss a few games already. It looks like the medical staff will shut the Grindfather down in order for him to heal. E'Twaun Moore has been playing huge minutes and that should continue. Ian Clark could also be in for some more minutes until Allen and Jameer Nelson are back in action.

Allen is averaging career-lows this season with 4.7 points and 2.1 rebounds in 12.4 minutes per game.
