Dewayne Dedmon

Fantasy News

  • 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.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    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
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    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
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    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.

    Dewayne Dedmon came off the bench again on Monday and scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting to go with nine rebounds, one assist, two blocks and two triples.

    Dedmon is getting enough minutes to warrant ownership in all leagues. Keep in mind that when Clint Capela (foot) returns, things might change a lot for Dedmon, but for now he should be owned everywhere.

    Dewayne Dedmon played well in his first game back with the Hawks on Sunday against the Knicks as he put up 10 points, eight rebounds and five blocks in 33 minutes of action.

    Dedmon shot 4-of-12 from the field and made one 3-pointer. Dedmon will only have relevance in standard formats when Clint Capela is out like he was on Sunday night. Aside from that, he could provide deep-league rebounding and blocks help.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    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,

    Dewayne Dedmon (trade pending) is inactive for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Dedmon will have a solid role while Clint Capela heals, but eventually, he will shift to a bench role that will limit him to deep leagues only. He's not unleashed like he wanted to be after departing Sacramento, but at least he will have a stable set of minutes now.

    Dewayne Dedmon (trade pending) is questionable to play on Friday.

    Things still have to be made official by the league, and while most players usually end up missing a game after being traded, Dedmon may get pushed through in time to suit up tonight. He figures to start for as long as Clint Capela is out, which puts him on the map as a short-term option in 12-team formats.

    Sacramento traded Dewayne Dedmon and two second round picks to Atlanta for Jabari Parker and Alex Len.

    Dewayne Dedmon should see a slight boost in value since he was barely playing in Sacramento when the team was healthy. Now that Atlanta has Clint Capela, Dedmon will only have 14-team league value at best. Jabari Parker and Alex Len are speculative options in 16-team leagues, but it is worth waiting to see what their role will be in Sacramento before grabbing them.

    Dewane Dedmon had a huge night in Monday's win over the wolves with four points on 2-of-8 shooting to go with a game-high 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and five blocks.

    Dedmon was on the floor for a team-high 35 minutes tonight and has looked great as the Kings starting center lately. It'll be interesting to see how Coach Walton divides the minutes when Richaun Holmes (shoulder) returns and if any of the Kings frontcourt players get moved by the deadline. There's a lot of fogginess here, but Dedmon should be owned until further notice.

  • Richaun Holmes
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder soreness) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game.

    The good news for Holmes owners is that he is expected to return on Friday against the Heat after missing about a month. At least Dewayne Dedmon will be back against the Wolves after battling an illness.

    Dewayne Dedmon (illness) will be available for Monday's game.

    Harry Giles got the start in Saturday's game, but Dedmon will return to the lineup. Dedmon's role has varied this season, but he does provide blocks and rebounds when receiving starter's minutes.

    Dewayne Dedmon has been ruled out of Saturday's game with flu-like symptoms.

    With Dedmon out, Harry Giles will get the start and will be an interesting punt play in DFS.
