    Clint Capela (right heel) has progressed in his rehab but is still at least two weeks away from a return, according to Coach Lloyd Pierce.

    Capela, who has missed the last 12 games, has begun running and movement drills in practice. Pierce stated Capela would most likely miss "15 (games) or less" coming out of the All-Star break. John Collins will continue to be the beneficiary of Capela's absence for at least another two weeks.

    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.

    Clint Capela (right heel) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    Earlier today Lloyd Pierce said that Capela would be out "weeks" so this just gives a slightly better timeline for us to work with. It sounds like the Hawks will take it easy on a player that they view as a long-term contributor, and this update gives Dewayne Dedmon at least two more weeks of fantasy viability.

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) will be out for "weeks" according to Hawks head coach Lloyd Pierce.

    The Hawks have little incentive to rush Capela and Dewayne Dedmon should see steady minutes while he is sidelined. Still, this is a longer absence than most observers would have expected. Capela is a double-double machine when healthy, but hopefully your league has an injured reserve spot if you own him.

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) will not be available for Thursday's game against the Heat.

    Capela hasn't yet made his debut for the Hawks. He averaged 13.9 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game before the Rockets traded him away. Dewayne Dedmon should continue to start in his absence.

    Clint Capela (right heel) did not participate in Tuesday's practice.

    Capela doesn't have a specific target date as he continues to fight the heel issue. With Capela out, Dewayne Dedmon will continue to absorb the bulk of minutes at C with Damian Jones backing him up. Over his past four games, Dedmon has averaged 8.8 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals, 3.8 blocks and 1.0 trey in 28.3 minutes per game.

    Dewayne Dedmon will start in Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks, forcing Damian Jones back to the second unit.

    Dedmon has once again become standard league fantasy relevant since re-joining the Hawks. Dedmon should continue to be streamed for as long as Clint Capela (foot) remains out. The situation will get murky when Capela returns to action but it should not be assumed that Capela returns the first game out of the break, although it is possible.

    Clint Capela (right calcaneus contusion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Knicks.

    This should come as no surprise knowing Capela was ruled out until after the All-Star break when playing for the Rockets. Dewayne Dedmon and John Collins will handle the center minutes until Capela is able to play,

    Clint Capela is listed as out ahead of Friday's game vs. the Celtics due to the recent trade.

    Capela is slotted to start at center when he makes his debut for the Hawks. Trae Young will likely enjoy having another quality rim-runner to play alongside. Capela could see his fantasy value increase with the recent move.

    Coach Lloyd Pierce said that he doesn't think Clint Capela will join the Hawks on this current road trip.

    Pierce said that they don't want to rush Capela back with him battling a heel injury. The Hawks return home on Sunday to play the Knicks, so hopefully Capela has a shot to make his debut for the Hawks then.

    Bruno Fernando (left calf strain) is available to play in Wednesday’s game against the Wolves but will be on a 12-minute restriction.

    Fernando has started in 11 games for the Hawks so far this season but with the new addition of Clint Capela, his opportunity to start has evaporated. He will come off the bench on Wednesday and is not worth a roster spot across any formats with Capela in the fold.

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Clint Capela is headed to the Hawks in a dizzying four-team trade that sends Robert Covington to the Rockets, Malik Beasley, Juancho Hernangomez, Evan Turner, Noah Vonleh, Jarred Vanderbilt and Keita Bates-Diop as well as Denver's two first-round picks for 2020 to the Wolves with Denver getting Gerald Green and Shabazz Napier.

    Capela will make for an intriguing frontcourt partner with John Collins. Capela's arrival all but snuffs out any viable value Alex Len and Damian Jones were holding onto. It's noteworthy that Capela has not played alongside a true scoring frontcourt threat, like Collins, so there will definitely be an adjustment period for both big men. That all said, expect Capela's marching orders to be simple. Focus on crashing the boards and blocking shots, which makes sense as those are his strengths. On the other end of the coin, he will see dips in his scoring. Overall, Capela's value should remain close to stable, but will be downgraded due to the Hawks' less than ideal fantasy playoff schedule.

    The Timberwolves, Hawks and Rockets are in advanced talks on a trade involving Clint Capela, Robert Covington and Evan Turner, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    The Hawks would land Capela, Covington would head to the Rockets and the Timberwolves would end up with Turner and draft picks. A fourth team is also rumored to be in the mix. The trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m. ET. Buckle up, this would be a big one with some serious fantasy implications.

    Aside from the Hawks and Kings, the Celtics are also potentially interested in trading for Clint Capela.

    Capela's heel injury will keep him out of Tuesday's game, but that hasn't stopped the trade rumors from swirling. It's a little strange given that the Rockets don't have much frontcourt depth, but so far we only know that Daryl Morey is listening to offers.

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) will not be suiting up against the Hornets on Tuesday.

    The Rockets haven't given anything firm about how long Capela will be out, so fantasy GMs will just have to sit tight. Between this and the trade deadline, Capela's value could swing in the coming days. In the meantime, look for Houston to keep rolling with their super-small rotation, which means Danuel House is a solid add for low-end numbers.
