June 6, 2019, 2:09 pmDeAndre' Bembry - F - Atlanta Hawks
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.

DeAndre' Bembry (right ankle sprain) will play on Sunday against the Bucks.
Bembry had been listed as probable and deserves a look with top-100 value over the last two weeks. If you need some scoring, assists and steals with potential for some decent contributions in rebounds, Bembry's your man. Just watch out for his inefficiency.

DeAndre' Bembry (right ankle sprain) is probable for Sunday's game against the Bucks.
A top-100 player in the past two weeks, Bembry is almost always able to take advantage of the minutes given to him whenever the Hawks are missing players to their rotation.

DeAndre' Bembry took advantage of Atlanta's skeleton roster on Friday night, posting 14 points (6-of-14 shooting), 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals in 29 minutes.
Bembry split his four free throws but his lacking efficiency isn't surprising. Fantasy owners know that's part of the package here, and it's likely worth the percentage hit given Bembry's potential to turn in counting stats like this. He's been a top-100 player over the last two weeks and should be good to keep in all lineups for the final few games, especially with half the regular Hawks on the injury report.
April 3, 2019, 10:35 pmDeAndre' Bembry - F - Atlanta Hawks
DeAndre' Bembry filled the stat sheet again on Wednesday with 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting to go with six rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.
Bembry's stat set has no bounds as he can fill it up across the board due to his versatile game. He's shooting .442 from the floor and .295 from deep on the year, so the shooting won't always be this pretty, but his defensive numbers are why you're adding him.

DeAndre' Bembry tallied 16 points, six boards, three assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in the Hawks' 136-135 overtime win against the Bucks.
Bembry managed a good game out of just 22 minutes off the bench. He's been a top-180 player on the season, but has been inside the top-115 over the past two weeks. As long as Taurean Prince is out, Bembry should get enough run to produce late-round value.
March 29, 2019, 6:47 pmJustin Anderson - G/F - Atlanta Hawks
Justin Anderson will draw the start for Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) on Friday vs. the Blazers.
Prince should be good to go on Sunday while DeAndre’ Bembry and Kent Bazemore are better options than Anderson.

Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) will not play on Friday vs. the Blazers.
The hits keep coming although the team expects Prince to be okay for Sunday. Prince’s absence opens up more time for DeAndre’ Bembry and Kent Bazemore while Justin Anderson will get the start.

DeAndre' Bembry totaled 18 points, six rebounds, two assists, four steals and a 3-pointer in 20 minutes on Tuesday night.
Bembry has been a sneaky source of counting stats all season long as the Hawks' jack of all trades in the second unit, and tonight he even came through with solid efficiency numbers — 6-of-10 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line. Give him a look in deeper formats if he's sitting on waivers.
March 19, 2019, 11:08 pmDeAndre' Bembry - F - Atlanta Hawks
DeAndre' Bembry put together a nice 14-point game on Tuesday vs. the Rockets that included 5-of-9 from the field, 2-of-2 from the charity stripe, nine rebounds, two assists and two threes in 23 minutes.
Bembry continues to be a hit-and-miss steals specialist that can provide a little bit of everything else. If you need a wildcard with upside, he may be your man.
March 3, 2019, 5:58 pmDeAndre' Bembry - F - Atlanta Hawks
DeAndre' Bembry went 1-for-8 from the field and 1-for-3 at the free throw line on Sunday and finished with three points, four rebounds, seven assists, two steals and a block in 24 minutes.
Bembry played more point guard than usual with Trae Young getting tossed early today and this was a nice showcase of his stat set — nice counting numbers, awful percentages. Bembry does a little bit of everything for the Hawks and remains a solid deep-league asset if you're not sweating the efficiency.
February 27, 2019, 11:41 pmDeAndre' Bembry - F - Atlanta Hawks
DeAndre' Bembry put up 16 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and a 3-pointer in 34 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's overtime win.
The Hawks basically abandoned their centers for half the game and Bembry was one of the big winners off the bench thanks to his versatile game. This was his first big game in quite some time, though he's been a solid deep-league asset with top-185/210 value in 8/9-cat this season. His minutes might increase down the stretch so he's definitely someone to keep a close eye on if he's unowned in any 16-teamers out there. Bembry's percentages are often lacking, so he won't fit every team, however.
