A report from Chris Vivlamore with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution says that Kent Bazemore underwent an arthroscopic knee procedure shortly after signing his deal with the Hawks last season.
Bazemore struggled in his first season after signing his contract with the Hawks and this knee issue is cited as the reason why. He still managed a top-150 season last year, but now feeling fully healthy, he’s improved that to top-100 on the season. Bazemore has been a well rounded fantasy contributor this season with only field goal percentage being his biggest blemish. Despite the Hawks actively tanking, he’s in no jeopardy of losing value and should remain a solid starter across all leagues.
