  • Alex Poythress - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Poythress (left ankle contusion) has been ruled out for Monday's game.

    Poythress left Saturday's game with the injury, and with Atlanta's frontcourt getting healthy, he may lose significant rotation time while he's out. John Collins and Dewayne Dedmond were going to take minutes anyways, so Poythress should be left on the waiver wire.

  • Taurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Taurean Prince (right Achilles pain) has been upgraded to probable for Monday's game.

    Prince was originally doubtful for this game but he 'looked good' in his workout Monday morning. An overnight doubtful-to-probable is rare, but Prince clearly recovered quickly. Justin Anderson, DeAndre' Bembry and Kevin Huerter all get knocked back down with Prince likely returning to action.

  • John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins (ankle) is expected to be limited to around 18 minutes during Monday's game versus the Clippers.

    It;s a step in the right direction as Collins played 12 minutes in his season debut on Saturday. It's encouraging to see the minutes increase and as long as he doesn't have a set back we should see Collins' minutes increase over the next few outings.

  • Jaylen Adams - G - Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks have recalled Jaylen Adams from Erie ahead of Monday's game versus the Clippers.

    Adams is practicing with the team this morning, but has no impact in fantasy or DFS.

  • Alex Poythress - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Poythress (ankle) is being listed doubtful for Monday's game.

    Poythress slotted into the starting five on Saturday against his old team in Indiana but it didn't feel like a move that would stick for a lengthy period of time. John Collins will step into the starting lineup eventually but Omari Spellman might jump back in as the starting power forward tomorrow.

  • Justin Anderson - G/F - Atlanta Hawks

    Justin Anderson is likely to make his season debut on Monday, though he'll be on a minutes limit.

    It'll also be Anderson's Hawks debut. He underwent offseason surgery to help with a stress reaction in his left tibia. Deep leaguers can feel free to track his progress, though he's going to be limited enough that it's hard to endorse a full add.

  • Taurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Taurean Prince (Achilles) will be listed as doubtful for Monday's game.

    Prince has missed two games already and the Hawks have used two different starters in his absence: DeAndre' Bembry and Kevin Huerter. With Justin Anderson set to return, he'll factor into things as well. Anderson has the most fun stat set of the bunch but is the furthest from fantasy relevance as he's just returning from a lengthy layoff. All three are deep-league options but we'd recommend sticking with Bembry and Huerter for the time being.

  • Kent Bazemore - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Kent Bazemore hit just 5-of-14 shots on Saturday night but still finished a road loss to the Pacers with 13 points, five rebounds, four assists, four steals, a block and two 3-pointers.

    Bazemore may be a streaky shooter but he's liable to fill up the box score like this on any given night for a talent-bereft Atlanta squad. He's going to be one of the league's top steals producers and has enough of an all-around game that the other counting numbers here aren't outrageously out of whack. He's going to blow past his ADP.

  • Jeremy Lin - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Jeremy Lin led the Hawks with 16 points in Saturday's loss, going 7-of-11 from the field with four rebounds, four assists, three steals and a 3-pointer in 24 minutes of action.

    Lin's been playing well of late and is getting closer and closer to the standard-league radar. He's not a full-fledged pickup just yet but if you are hurting in the backcourt, you could certainly do a lot worse. Lin led the bench in minutes tonight and is emerging as one of their more consistent options.

  • John Collins - F/C - Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins made his season debut on Saturday night, logging 12 points, two rebounds and a block in 12 minutes of action against the Pacers.

    Collins went 3-of-6 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line. Make sure he's owned in all fantasy leagues, as an impatient owner might've cut him loose after his return date kept getting pushed back. He'll be into the middle-rounds of the fantasy ranks in no time. His return did hurt Omari Spellman, who played only 12 minutes. His stock is on the way down.

  • Kevin Huerter - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter was plugged into the starting five on Saturda night but only mustered five points on 2-of-9 from the field in 29 minutes.

    Huerter salvaged things a bit with three rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and a triple. It was better than the night of fellow rookie Trae Young, who shot 3-of-11 for nine points, four assists and a steal. Huerter is a deep-league option while Young is going to be a frustrating player whose upside demands ownership in all standard formats.

  • Alex Len - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len started and put up five points, four rebounds and a steal while shooting 1-for-7 in 20 minutes while Dewayne Dedmon's Saturday night included 12 points, seven rebounds, a block and a triple on 4-of-5 from the field in 23 minutes.

    In case you were wondering who the better fantasy option is. With John Collins also back, Len might be feeling the squeeze soon. He's a bottom-barrel option in 14-team leagues and can probably be dropped for higher-upside options. Dedmon should be owned in all 12-teamers and figures to regain his starting job soon.

  • Alex Poythress - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Poythress left Saturday's game with a left ankle contusion and will not return.

    Poythress started against his old team, the Pacers, tonight and will finish up with three rebounds and three blocks in 11 minutes of action. With Atlanta's frontcourt getting healthier, he's a weak option even in deep leagues.

  • Vince Carter - G/F - Atlanta Hawks

    Both Vince Carter and Alex Poythress headed back to the locker room in the third quarter of Saturday's game.

    No word on whether this is injury-related, though Carter looked to be dealing with a hurt hand. He has since returned to the bench, but no updates on Poythress have come through yet.

  • Kevin Huerter - G - Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks will plug Kevin Huerter into the starting lineup on Saturday.

    That's two changes for the Hawks, who are also starting Alex Poythress as well. DeAndre' Bembry and Omari Spellman will head to the bench. The Hawks really like Huerter and he'd be a deep-league consideration if this move stuck.
