ANALYSIS: It's a big blow for the Cavs who have been without Allen since March 6 with a fractured left finger. Even though there were some positive signs with Allen shedding the splint on the finger during a recent workout, he has not recovered enough to where the team will put him in the lineup.
Allen had been a huge part of the Cavs success this season, anchoring the team's defense while also averaging 16.1 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks.
