    DeAndre' Bembry (illness) is available for Thursday's game against the Suns.

    Bembry was a late addition to the report but it's good that he's healthy. With Kevin Huerter out indefinitely, Bembry is going to have a chance to stand out in a Hawks rotation that features some uninspiring wings for fantasy purposes. He's worth a look if you need steals and assists.

    Kevin Huerter suffered a left rotator cuff strain with an associated shoulder capsule strain and will be re-evaluated after two weeks.

    This news guarantees that Huerter will miss the next eight contests before being re-evaluated. Look for Cam Reddish and DeAndre' Bembry to see more minutes during his absence. Bembry has the higher floor while Reddish has the higher ceiling if he could only improve upon his efficiency.

    DeAndre' Bembry (illness) is probable to play in Thursday's road game against the Suns.

    Looks like Bembry might be a little under the weather but it seems he should be fine to play. With Kevin Huerter out, he should have a chance to log meaningful minutes and provide value in assists and steals.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Huerter left to go to the locker room and was seen "holding his left shoulder very gingerly" on Tuesday night after a foul from Nikola Jokic.

    Continue to check for updates but this would be a big loss for the Hawks as Huerter was perfect from the field (4-of-4) so far on Tuesday. Cam Reddish, DeAndre' Bembry and Tyrone Wallace will see additional minutes if Huerter is forced to miss time.

  • Vince Carter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Vince Carter will remain out on Tuesday due to personal reasons.

    Carter missed Sunday's game and DeAndre' Bembry ended up playing 40 minutes. Carter does not provide much fantasy value these days.

    Deandre' Bembry played 28 minutes off the bench on Thursday, notching a near triple-double with 18 points, 10 boards and eight assists.

    Bembry was excellent off the bench in this one as Cam Reddish did not take advantage of his heavy deployment in a start. There will be some growing pains from the young guns in the Hawks' rotation, so Bembry' may continue to get some good opportunities.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young's ankle swelling has gone down and he has been able to begin rehab, but he will miss Thursday's game against the Heat.

    This follows the good news from yesterday listing Young as only day-to-day. He will be evaluated next week and doesn't figure to miss much more time with the ankle sprain. The Hawks will deploy a platoon of out-of-position ball handlers in Young's stead, possibly opening with DeAndre' Bembry with Kevin Huerter backing him up and Evan Turner mixing in, if available. Bembry is worth streaming in the short-term, while Huerter is worth a proactive add in deeper leagues as he slowly reclaims his spot in the rotation.

  • Alex Len
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Alex Len scored four points on 1-of-5 shooting with six rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block on Thursday against the Pistons.

    Len was productive on the defensive end in 23 minutes tonight but the low minutes are a bit of a concern. DeAndre' Bembry (23 minutes, eight points, two rebounds, three assists and two steals) had a decent night as well, but isn't getting enough burn to own in standard leagues either.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter (right knee pain) reportedly looked good in practice on Tuesday and has a chance to play in Thursday's matchup with the Pistons if he is healthy enough.

    Huerter missed the entire preseason as he worked his way back from a lingering knee issue, but has made real progress the past few days. His return is a big boost to the team's shooting on the wings. Cam Reddish and DeAndre Bembry would see an increase in minutes if Huerter can't go.

  • Kevin Huerter
    SG, Atlanta Hawks

    Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce is undecided on who the starting shooting guard will be for the season opener vs. the Pistons.

    It’ll likely be Kevin Huerter (knee) if he’s deemed healthy enough to play. However, DeAndre Bembry and Cam Reddish have a shot at it too.

    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    DeAndre' Bembry was efficient off the bench on Monday, hitting 5-of-7 field goals and 2-of-3 free throws en route to 13 points, five rebounds, three assists and one triple in 25 minutes.

    Kevin Huerter missed this game, allowing for more Bembry minutes. And while Bembry had a nice game, his value usually comes from steals and occasionally blocks. He's got potential, but the Hawks likely added too many wings during the offseason for Bembry to get enough action to help in fantasy.

    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    DeAndre' Bembry is slated to start at shooting guard in Monday's preseason opener.

    Kevin Huerter has been dealing with a minor injury but it's worth filing away that Bembry is the next man up. He can do a little bit of everything and makes for a fine dart throw in most fantasy formats as long as you can handle some poor percentages. The rest of the starting five will consist of Trae Young, John Collins, De'Andre Hunter and Damian Jones, who is filling in for the ailing Alex Len.

    Speaking to reporters Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce praised DeAndre' Bembry's defensive versatility saying, "Now, you go back to prevention and it’s who can contain the basketball. Right off the bat, DeAndre' Bembry. We can throw DeAndre' at Russell Westbrook. We are pretty good. He’s going to be able to keep him in front."

    That's high praise for the three-year pro who played in his first full season this past year. Based on this quote, Bembry is going to have a significant role for the Hawks next season as a defensive stopper. If Bembry can develop a consistent jumper, he can prove to be a quality fantasy asset.

    DeAndre' Bembry achieved a personal milestone by playing his first full NBA season in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers, finishing with 11 points and not much else in 20 minutes.

    Bembry finally was able to play through a whole season healthy, establishing himself as a steals specialist who proved capable of providing a smattering of counting stats when given enough playing time. On the year he finished a top-170/200 value (8-cat/9-cat) and figures to fall around that same area next season if he plays his same bench role.

    DeAndre' Bembry was productive in Sunday's 107-115 loss to the Bucks, posting 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting with eight rebounds, three dimes and one steal.

    He was originally listed on the injury report as probable with a right ankle sprain so it was nice to Bembry power through and deliver. He's been a top-150 value over the last week thanks to his multi-cat game. Kent Bazemore added 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting with three triples, two rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes off the bench.
