Sixers' Lavoy Allen OK for Game 2

CHICAGO — Sixers center Lavoy Allen took part in Sunday's practice session and will be fine for Game 2 despite suffering a thumb injury in Saturday's Game 1.

The team said he sprained a thumb, but X-rays were negative. He was wearing a bandage after Game 1, but did not have the thumb wrapped Sunday.

Making his playoff debut, the rookie had four points and six rebounds in 20 minutes as the starting center.

The Sixers are likely to make a lineup change after getting virtually no production from starter Jodie Meeks in Saturday's 103-91 loss. Evan Turner played 29 minutes, 30 seconds in place of Meeks and scored 12 points and dished five assists.

After Sunday's practice, coach Doug Collins declined to discuss a lineup change, saying he had time with Game 2 not until Tuesday night.
