  • Justin Anderson - G/F - Atlanta Hawks

    Justin Anderson played 13 minutes in Wednesday's season finale against the Pacers, scoring seven points and grabbing three rebounds

    The fifth year forward failed to get much opportunity in his first season in Atlanta. He played a career-low 9.6 mpg and failed to make much of an impact aside from a few spot starts in the waning days of the season. He’s not on the radar heading into next year’s drafts.

  • Justin Anderson - G/F - Atlanta Hawks

    Justin Anderson played through a neck strain on Friday night and made another start, though he wasn't all that productive with five points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and a 3-pointer while shooting 1-for-7.

    Another made shot or two and the line looks much better, and it's clear that Anderson can chip in at multiple spots in the box score. He's looking at additional minutes for as long as Kevin Huerter and Kent Bazemore are sidelined and is a decent roll of the dice for cash counters. We'd also like to see him play more than 26 minutes, as he did in this one, though the blowout hit pretty much everyone in that regard.

  • Taurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) will start on Friday vs. the Magic.

    Justin Anderson will start alongside Prince as Kent Bazemore and Kevin Huerter are out.

  • Justin Anderson - G/F - Atlanta Hawks

    The Hawks are listing Justin Anderson (neck strain) as probable for Friday's game against the Magic.

    Kent Bazemore and Kevin Huerter were ruled out earlier in the day, opening up a prime opportunity for Justin Anderson against the Magic. Anderson has been a top-115 player in 9-cat leagues over the past week and will look to better that mark with the added opportunity. Anderson and DeAndre' Bembry make for nice cheap streaming options on a big Friday slate.

  • Justin Anderson - G/F - Atlanta Hawks

    Justin Anderson followed up his big game on Sunday with seven points, nine rebounds, one steal and one three in 26 minutes on Tuesday against the Spurs.

    Anderson isn't going to provide consistent production, but if you need a streamer with some upside, he could be your man due to the minutes he's looking at down the stretch.

  • Justin Anderson - G/F - Atlanta Hawks

    Justin Anderson put up a big double-double in an overtime win against the Bucks on Sunday with 24 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.

    Anderson was fairly quiet in his start on Friday, but showed off his potential in this one. He's always been pegged as an athletic three-and-D player, but has not been able to stick in a rotation so far in his young career. We'll see if a big game like this nets him more opportunity going forward.

    Justin Anderson will start for Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) again on Sunday.

    Anderson started for Prince on Friday but was fairly quiet with six points, two assists, two threes and two blocks in 24 minutes. He's worth a stream if you need some cash counters today.

  • Kevin Huerter - G - Atlanta Hawks

    Kevin Huerter hit only 5-of-14 from the field to finish Friday’s home loss to the Blazers with 11 points, a 3, four assists, four rebounds and a turnover.

    Huerter has really been slumping lately with just top-250 value over the last few weeks on a very ugly 32.4 percent from the field. Justin Anderson, who had a spot-start for Taurean Prince, had six points, two threes, two assists and two blocks in 24 minutes.

    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 - F - Atlanta Hawks

    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.

  • Justin Anderson - G/F - Atlanta Hawks

    Justin Anderson (flu-like symptoms) is available to play on Monday.

    We'll see how much Anderson plays with Taurean Prince, Dewayne Dedmon and Kent Bazemore sidelined and Omari Spellman in the G-League. His main competition for time at the forward spots today appears to be the newly-recalled Alex Poythress and Vince Carter. Anderson's stat set has always piqued our interest but he has never gotten a sustained stretch of adequate playing time. Perhaps that changes for the rebuilding Hawks.

    Justin Anderson (illness) is probable for Monday's game.

    Anderson could be looking at a few more minutes headed his way with Kent Bazemore out for a couple of weeks. He's always had a fun stat set so deep-league owners should at least keep an eye on him, even if it's not likely to amount to much.

    Justin Anderson will be limited to 10 minutes on Monday night.

    It's Anderson's season debut after an offseason procedure on his leg. He'll play in three-minute stints, with one floating minute he'll make up somewhere. Anderson is worth keeping an eye on in deep leagues but won't be a serious consideration until he's playing minutes in the high teens.

  • Justin Anderson - G/F - Atlanta Hawks

    Justin Anderson is likely to make his season debut on Monday, though he'll be on a minutes limit.

    It'll also be Anderson's Hawks debut. He underwent offseason surgery to help with a stress reaction in his left tibia. Deep leaguers can feel free to track his progress, though he's going to be limited enough that it's hard to endorse a full add.
