Dewayne Dedmon

    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.

    Dewayne Dedmon blocked three shots on Monday, adding 14 points, nine rebounds and two 3-pointers before fouling out in 28 minutes on Monday.

    Dedmon has strong production in blocks with some rebounds and threes to go with it. He is a strong add in 14-team leagues for GMs in need of those categories and he is a top-100 player per game since the trade deadline. Clint Capela (right heel, plantar fasciitis) doesn't look to be returning soon and Dedmon will hold his current value until Capela returns.

    Dewayne Dedmon (right elbow pain) has been cleared to return to action on Friday night.

    Dedmon has missed the last four games after undergoing a non-surgical procedure on his ailing elbow. He's looking at a nice finish to the season with Clint Capela not close to a return and should be scooped up in just about all leagues for his ability to deliver blocks, threes and rebounds.

    Bruno Fernando (left shin soreness) is probable to play in Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Fernando has seen more minutes lately due to the injury to Dewayne Dedmon but hasn't taken advantage of it in his rookie campaign. With Dedmon likely returning on Friday, Fernando will lose most of the fantasy value that he had.

    Dewayne Dedmon (right elbow pain) practiced fully on Thursday and is expected to play on Friday against the Wizards.

    After missing four games due to right elbow pain, Dedmon is expected to return to the court against the Wizards on Friday night. Dedmon has filled in admirably for the Hawks as a blocks and rebounds specialist. If he was dropped in your league, go pick him up as Clint Capela has no timetable to return.

    After missing the last three games with right elbow pain, Dewayne Dedmon has been cleared to return to practice.

    It’s likely Dedmon’s status won’t officially be upgraded until later in the week, once the Hawks see how he reacts to workouts and practicing with contact. With Clint Capela (right calcaneus contusion/plantar fasciitis) not cleared to play yet, Dedmon’s absence has left the team quite thin at center, with Bruno Fernando and Damian Jones getting the majority of those minutes.

    Appearing on 92.9 FM this morning, Hawks GM Travis Schlenk said that he fully expects Dewayne Dedmon to play against the Nets on Friday.

    Dedmon underwent a non-surgical procedure recently in order to relieve his right elbow pain and he has missed the last three games now which was the initial prognosis. We should get another update until Friday but Dedmon looks to be on track to return in the next game and he will continue to have value as long as Clint Capela remains sidelined.

  • Damian Jones
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Damian Jones (flu-like symptoms) is questionable to play in Friday's game vs. the Nets.

    There appears to be a sickness going around the Hawks locker room as Trae Young has also been sick recently. With Clint Capela (heel) and Dewayne Dedmon (elbow) both ruled out for a few games, Bruno Fernando is in line for a huge opportunity. Jones would see minutes off the bench if he was able to play but is well off the fantasy radar. Fernando should be added to watch-lists in standard leagues while he may have streaming appeal in 14-team leagues.

    On Thursday, the Hawks announced that Dewayne Dedmon has undergone a non-surgical procedure to relieve right elbow pain and that he'll miss the next three games.

    Dedmon is set to be re-evaluated on Monday, which means he's a drop if you're fighting for the playoffs and this is the last week of your regular season. He had started returning standard league value since being traded to Atlanta but at this point in the season, a lot of fantasy GMs simply need healthy bodies. Bruno Fernando and Damian Jones will step up at the center spot but the Hawks will likely turn to more small-ball lineups, making their various wings and forwards more appealing in most fantasy formats.

  • Bruno Fernando
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    Bruno Fernando started on Wednesday and scored 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting with nine boards and one steal in 22 minutes.

    Fernando got the start with Dewayne Dedmon (right elbow pain) sitting out. Fernando can be streamed for field goal percentage, rebounds and blocks while Dedmon is sidelined and should return to the waiver wire once Dedmon returns. Dedmon owners should hold on through his absence if they can, as he is likely to post standard-league value when he returns.

    Bruno Fernando will start against the Magic on Wednesday in place of Dewayne Dedmon (right elbow pain), who has been ruled out.

    Dedmon has been on a nice stretch since joining the Hawks. Fernando will draw the start while Damian Jones will see some minutes off the bench. Neither Fernando nor Jones are viable in fantasy this season but Fernando could have some DFS appeal as a low-cost option. Dedmon's next opportunity to play will be on Friday vs. the Nets.

    Dewayne Dedmon has been downgraded to questionable ahead of Wednesday's tilt vs. the Magic as he deals with pain in his right elbow.

    If Dedmon is unable to play on Wednesday, look for Bruno Fernando to start while Damian Jones see some time off the bench. Continue to monitor as we should learn more prior to the 7:30pm ET tip-off.

    Dewayne Dedmon (right elbow pain) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Dedmon entered the break with some momentum but has floundered a bit in the three games since play resumed failing to score double digits in any game. Dedmon played a mere 14 minutes in Monday's loss to the Sixers as he dealt with foul trouble early and often. With Clint Capela out for the foreseeable future, Dedmon will have the opportunity to get back on track as we enter the stretch run.

    Dewayne Dedmon managed eight points, 12 rebounds and two blocks in 25 minutes on Saturday night.

    Dedmon's got a little extra leash with news that Clint Capela will be out for multiple weeks. He's been a middle-round option in the last two weeks and there's no reason to think that won't continue for as long as Capela is out.

  • John Collins
    PF, Atlanta Hawks

    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.
