Auburn Wing Allen Flanigan Out Indefinitely Due to Personal Matter

As the Auburn Tigers begin preseason practice, they will be without senior small forward Allen Flanigan, who is out indefinitely dealing with a personal family matter, Bruce Pearl announced today.¬†According to Pearl, there is no timetable for Flanigan’s return as of right now.

Flanigan, who is the son of Auburn assistant coach and former player Wes Flanigan, entered the NBA Draft process after last season and elected to come back for his senior season instead.

His best season came in his sophomore year in 2020, during which he averaged 14.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game while being a fixture in the Tigers starting lineup. At the start of his junior season last year, Flanigan partially tore his achilles and struggled to get back into a consistent rhythm for a talented Auburn team after he made his return in January.

Auburn fans are hoping that Flanigan can build on his sophomore year in his final season on The Plains. We wish him nothing but the best in tending to his family matters.
