    While it had been reported that the Hawks could open their practice facility for individual workouts as early as Friday, GM Travis Schlenk said that there are no plans to do so.

    Schlenk said, "We have not gotten anything official from the NBA yet… I can tell you though, if we do receive a memo between now and then, we currently have no plans to open up our facility on Friday." The NBA reportedly gave clearance to teams in cities and states with eased stay-at-home restrictions to open facilities on May 1, but the Hawks are going to take a more cautious approach. If Georgia's reopening goes well it's possible that the team opens things up quickly but Schlenk cautioned that the last thing they wanted was to jump right in and experience a second wave of COVID-19.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Although he has yet to be evaluated by the Hawks training staff due to the coronavirus pandemic, Clint Capela (right heel, plantar fasciitis)said that he has continued to make progress in his rehab.

    Capela admitted that he still isn't 100 percent healthy, but that that pain level has dropped to the 3-5 range. It seems unlikely that he is going to play again this season should the season resume, as he is still a little ways off. Capela will look to enter the 2020/21 season with a clean bill of health.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the NBA and ESPN are close to finalizing a televised Horse competition that expects to feature Trae Young, Chris Paul, Zach LaVine and others.

    It is also believed that there will be some participants from the WNBA as well as recent NBA alumni. The NBA has been trying to find any way to get their product back on television and this seems like the easiest way to make that happen in the current environment. The NBA might still be a ways away but NBA fans will be able to watch some of their favorite athletes in a good old fashioned Horse competition.

    C, Atlanta Hawks

    According to Sarah K. Spencer of the Atlantic Journal Constitution, Clint Capela had been progressing towards participating in half-court workouts prior to the season being suspended.

    There was some uncertainty surrounding Capela's potential return this season, but now he will have a much better shot at getting a few games below his belt before the conclusion of the season. If Capela does indeed find himself on the court for a few games, we'd have to imagine that he will be on a strict minutes limit as Lloyd Pierce alluded to last month.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young took the game into his hands on Wednesday night, scoring 42 points on 12-of-25 shooting (6-12 3PT), grabbing two rebounds, and dishing out 11 assists.

    Young's efforts came up just short as the Hawks lost to the Knicks in OT, but it's clear that Young is a baller. He can shoot lights out, and facilitate others with his fantastic vision and passing. Young will be an elite player for years to come.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter saw 36 minutes of action on Wednesday night, turning in a line of 15 points (5-12 FG, 3-5 3PT), six rebounds and an assist.

    Hunter had a few nice looks from deep and turned in a decent shooting performance tonight. We'd like to see more consistency on the defensive front for him to be a relevant player in most leagues.

  • John Collins
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins had an impressive line on Wednesday, finishing his night with 22 points (9-20 FG, 1-6 3PT), 15 rebounds, two steals and a block.

    The shooting percentage could have been better if he wasn't launching threes, but he still was able to make an impact on the game. He is talented player that can be counted on for across the board production and a big man that can knock down a triple. The Hawks other big man, Dewayne Dedmon, collected 13 rebounds tonight to go with his six points.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter and Treveon Graham will play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Huerter has been bothered by his groin recently but he hasn’t missed any action. Returning borderline top-40 value in the last couple weeks, he should be owned in standard leagues. Graham meanwhile will be available even though he was hit with the questionable tag but he is an option only in deeper leagues.

  • John Collins

    John Collins will play on Wednesday when the Hawks face the Knicks.

    Collins had been listed as probable and he wasn’t really in danger of missing the game. With Clint Capela still sidelined, the second-year forward has been dominating in the middle returning first round value for the managers who were patient with him after a slow start.

  • DeAndre' Bembry

    DeAndre' Bembry (abdominal pain) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

    Bembry has been out since mid-January and can be left on waiver wires.

  • Treveon Graham
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    Treveon Graham (personal) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

    Graham doesn't carry much of a role or fantasy value and can be left on the waiver wire for now.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter (sore left groin) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

    Huerter has been on fire lately with top-35/50 value in 9/8 cat leagues over the past two weeks as he takes on more ballhandling duties. Huerter's assists have jumped to 5.9 per game over the past seven games, along with 13.6 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.7 treys and 1.1 steals.

  • John Collins
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins (sore left ankle) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

    Collins should be good to go in what is a good matchup against a soft Knicks defense. Clint Capela (heel) remains without a timetable, so Collins should continue producing top-tier fantasy numbers down the stretch. Fire him up as you normally would.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Lloyd Pierce recently gave his team his thoughts on next season, and he emphasized that they are a playoff team and that preparation for that has to start now.

    The team meeting came on the heels of an odd sequence of events for the Hawks as they followed two of their best wins of the season with one of their worst losses, a listless 39-point blowout at home to the short-handed Grizzlies. The Hawks have yet to win three games in a row this season but Pierce believes in the Hawks’ young core that will be back next season. The addition of Clint Capela could only help and we will be waiting for the big man to make his debut before the end of the year.

  • John Collins
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    John Collins double-doubled with 28 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks in 46 minutes on Monday.

    Collins couldn't miss from the floor on Monday, shooting 12-of-13. Unfortunately that didn't carry over to the free throw line, where he shot 4-of-8. He's an 80 percent free throw shooter on the season, so his shooting from the line should trend back up in the next game. Collins is a first-round player per game on the season and is a top-5 player over the past month. Collins is set up for a monster finish and Clint Capela (right heel, plantar fasciitis) doesn't look like he will be returning soon.
