  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    After a one-game absence De'Andre Hunter will slide back into the starting lineup Monday evening in Philadelphia.

    Hunter can be an asset in deeper leagues for the remainder of the season as the minutes and opportunities to produce will be there. The rookie has averaged 12.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists on the year.

  • DeAndre' Bembry

    DeAndre' Bembry (abdominal pain) is being listed as out for Monday's game against the Sixers.

    Bembry has not played since January 20th and is dealing with multiple ailments. He has not played well enough to warrant fantasy consideration aside from being a deep league flier when he's out there.

  • John Collins
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins was dominant in Saturday's 111-107 win over the Hawks, putting up 35 points, 17 rebounds, a steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers while shooting 13-of-18 from the field.

    Collins has been cooking at a first-round level in the last two weeks, and is a few spots below that on the full season, and there's really nothing outside of health that can slow him down — not even Clint Capela. He made quick work of a smaller Mavs team tonight and kept Atlanta around until Trae Young popped in 13 of his 25 points in the final frame. Keep the young Hawks locked and loaded down the stretch.

  • Dewayne Dedmon
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Dewayne Dedmon managed eight points, 12 rebounds and two blocks in 25 minutes on Saturday night.

    Dedmon's got a little extra leash with news that Clint Capela will be out for multiple weeks. He's been a middle-round option in the last two weeks and there's no reason to think that won't continue for as long as Capela is out.

  • Cam Reddish
    G-F, Atlanta Hawks

    Cam Reddish notched 20 points, six rebounds, three assists and three steals on Saturday night.

    Reddish played 39 minutes and shot 6-for-16 with no threes to dampen spirits a bit, but he's been a surprising top-75 value in the last two weeks. He's outside the top-200 on the full season but has been a top-100 type over the last month, so it's time to start considering Reddish as a viable option in standard leagues. Don't expect the world but there's no harm in striking while the iron is hot.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter gave fantasy GMs a lot to ponder on Saturday night, going 1-for-11 from the field for three points while adding three rebounds, six assists, four steals and a 3-pointer.

    Huerter is definitely trending downward and is getting squeezed by Atlanta's other young wings, but he's still a top-120 player on the season despite just top-150 output in the last couple of weeks. He's probably one of the last guys on your roster and could be cut for a can't-miss free agent, but it's hard to argue with the overall package. His .419 FG% stings and there are nights where he completely disappears, but in the end the value is what the value is. Huerter's starting to get a Danny Green vibe about him, which means he'll frustrate night-to-night if you can't wait for the big picture.

  • DeAndre' Bembry

    DeAndre' Bembry (abdominal pain) will not play against the Mavs on Saturday

    Bembry was originally listed as doubtful so this is no surprise although we have yet to learn about any details on this injury. This will be Bembry's 15th consecutive game on the shelf as the first 13 were related to a hand injury which he has now recovered from.

  • DeAndre' Bembry
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    DeAndre' Bembry is dealing with abdominal pain that has him doubtful to face the Mavs on Saturday.

    Bembry can't catch a break as his missed games streak will now carry forward into the second half of the season. The abdominal pain appears to be an entirely new issue that we should learn more on soon. He could have a role in deep leagues down the stretch, but at this point, he is an afterthought for fantasy purposes.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (personal) will miss Saturday's contest against the Mavs.

    Hunter has been slowing improving as a fantasy asset, and we all know the minutes are going to remain stable for the rookie. If you have the space in standard leagues it is not a terrible idea to wait out this absence and see what Hunter can do to close out the year.

  • John Collins
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins racked up two steals and three blocks to add a jolt to an otherwise quiet 12 points and seven rebounds on Thursday night.

    Collins has been a huge asset on a per-game basis and as long as Clint Capela is out, he is going to be an elite option. Right now, Dewayne Dedmon is starting at center for the Hawks and isn't providing much, going scoreless with eight boards in 20 minutes. We'll see how the rotation shakes out when Capela is healthy, but it shouldn't affect Collins too much because of his ability to stretch the floor.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter went for 17 points, six rebounds and three triples on Thursday night.

    Hunter played through a sprained right ankle in this game and frankly played quite well. We'd love to see some more defensive counters than this but if he's going to go 7-of-12 from the floor, we shouldn't complain.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter played 40 minutes in Thursday's win over the Heat, scoring 17 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three triples as the Hawks beat the Heat.

    Huerter did manage to play this game and produced quite well. He has trended up over the last two months as a top-100 player. Unfortunately, the percentages do limit his upside, but he should at least be a 3-point specialist. Cam Reddish played 37 minutes for his 16 points, four rebounds and four defensive counters. Reddish has similarly trended up of late as he approaches late-round value. He may have some value in deep leagues.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young ran the show on Thursday night, scoring a season-high 50 points (12-of-25 shooting, 18-of-19 from the line), eight assists, eight 3-pointers and seven turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Young continued his great season and produced exactly how we expect him to. He scored in bunches, made a lot of triples, picked up his fair share of dimes and turned it over in bulk as well. These are kind of the four things we expect right now from Young. Some days are going to be tougher shooting the ball but Young is a top-20 asset for all leagues.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter (allergic reaction) is cleared to play on Thursday.

    Huerter suffered the reaction at an event on Wednesday but he's not too much worse for the wear and is good to get into lineups tonight if you'd usually have him in there.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (right ankle sprain) will play on Thursday.

    Hunter tweaked his ankle at practice but is good to go. He's been on a nice run of late but is only returning late-round value even then. He's a no-go if you care about FG% but low-end value isn't out of the question for Hunter down the stretch. It's just more likely that he's a better asset for deeper leagues.
