Description: Ray Allen will likely wait until January or even the All-Star Break to sign with a team according to NBC Sports.
Insight: It sounds like Allen is pulling a Roger Clemens, waiting until halfway through the season to see which teams are ready to make a playoff run and where he would fit the best. That's great for Allen, but it makes him fantasy irrelevant.

Insight: Mario Chalmers, who has struggled this series, will come off the bench. We suspect LeBron James will be running the point. If the Spurs win tonight, this could be Allen's final game in the NBA. The veteran hinted at retirement earlier this week.

Insight: Allen tweaked his hip in Game 4 but was given the go ahead after making it through his usual pre-game routine without any issues. He's averaged 10 ppg on 40.7 percent shooting for the series. Allen has been particularly effective from long range, making 44.4 percent of his shots from that distance over the last four games.

Description: Miami guard Ray Allen (hip) will be a game-time decision for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals Wednesday night, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Allen didn't participate in the shootaround. He bruised his hip when he attempted to run through a screen in Game 4 but returned to the game. He has averaged 10 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 threes per game in the series, which the Heat lead 3-1.
 
5/25/2014 9:31:00 AM
Description: Ray Allen was quiet in the first three quarters but he came on strong late as the Heat won for the second time in as many games Saturday against Indiana.
Insight: Allen (16 points) didn't even attempt a three-pointer in the first 36 minutes but he made all four of his trifectas in the fourth to finish with his highest point total of the series. If Allen keeps hitting his threes, Miami is going to be tough to beat.
 
4/3/2014 1:44:00 PM

3/26/2014 12:13:00 PM
Description: Miami SG Ray Allen is doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Pacers due to a stomach virus, according to the Heat on Twitter.
Insight: Allen has been very good lately, averaging 30.6 minutes, 15.9 points and 2.6 triples per game. Norris Cole and Michael Beasley will get most of Allen's minutes, and both players will see a lot of time if Dwyane Wade (Achilles, game-time decision) also has to miss the contest.

12/27/2013 8:54:00 PM
