Ersan Ilyasova had a nice game against one of his ex-teams, posting 22 points and four triples on 7-of-10 shooting in a loss to the Thunder on Friday.
Ilyasova has always been a viable fantasy option given his proclivity to produce a handful of different stat types. He’s only a late-round guy on the season and seems primed for a benching as the Hawks return to full strength, so while he’s worth holding onto until then you shouldn’t wait too long to cut the cord if a higher-upside free agent comes along. His expiring contract may also make him an attractive trade candidate in real life, so be aware that his floor could change pretty quickly if you intend to hold onto Ilyasova all season.
