    Kevin Huerter (right knee pain) will not play in Thursday's preseason game.

    Huerter is going to miss the entire preseason, and after suffering a setback over the weekend his availability for opening night is in question. There is still value to be had in taking Huerter in the later rounds of 12-team drafts but the risk factor has increased significantly. Cam Reddish and De'Andre Hunter are in line for extra minutes for as long as Huerter is out.

    Kevin Huerter (right knee) had a setback over the weekend that has forced him to miss Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

    This is concerning news for those who drafted Huerter around pick-110 in redraft leagues as he has yet to make his preseason debut. For those of you who haven't drafted, it is plausible to drop Huerter down a round or two with this news. Unlike most other injuries that occur in the preseason, this one seems like it is worth monitoring as we inch closer towards opening night. If Huerter does end up missing time, expect rookies Cam Reddish and De'Andre Hunter to play more minutes.

    The Hawks are listing Kevin Huerter (right knee pain) as out for Wednesday's preseason game against the Knicks.

    The expectation is still that Huerter will play when the regular season opens up, but it is troubling that he has yet to play in a preseason game. Cam Reddish will continue to get time with the starting unit while Huerter remains on the mend.

    Kevin Huerter (right knee pain) will not play in Monday's preseason tilt with the Heat.

    Huerter said earlier in camp that he wasn't worried about his status for opening night, and although the expectation is that he'll be ready for the regular season it is a little troubling that he has yet to play in the preseason. Huerter returned to practice on Friday, so hopefully this is the Hawks playing it safe with their presumed starting shooting guard. Health permitting, Huerter makes for a quality pick in the final few rounds of 12-team drafts.

    Kevin Huerter (knee pain) was able to go through practice on Friday.

    All the Hawks practiced except for Chandler Parsons and Allen Crabbe, so Atlanta looks to be getting close to full health as the season approaches. Huerter should start at shooting guard when he's ready to rock and makes for a nice pick towards the end of 12-team drafts. We'd feel more confident if he got into at least one preseason tilt, so keep an eye out for those updates.

    Kevin Huerter (knee pain) will not play in Wednesday's exhibition game vs. the Magic.

    It is strange that Huerter is out for tonight's matchup as he doesn't appear on the NBA's official injury report. Hopefully, they are only keeping him out of this game as a precaution in advance of the regular season. Huerter will have another opportunity to play this preseason as the Hawks play the Heat next Monday. Huerter is getting drafted towards the end of standard drafts but this knee issue is worth monitoring.

    Kevin Huerter (knee pain) will not play in Monday's preseason opener.

    Huerter is still building his way up to a 'full day,' though Lloyd Pierce said that he's going to get one today aside from playing in the actual game. The Hawks have been easing Huerter into things after he reported knee pain in August but it doesn't sound as though he'll miss time into the regular season. Consider him a quality late-round selection in standard leagues.

    Kevin Huerter (knee pain) will be limited in training camp.

    Huerter told the Hawks he'd been dealing with knee pain in late August and they plan on easing him into the swing of things at camp. His work will be increased as it goes along and he'll be re-evaluated at the end of camp.

    In a recent interview, Kevin Huerter said he wants to get better at every type of look in the Hawks' offense and not be known as just a 3-point specialist.

    Huerter has been studying film of Bradley Beal, Gordon Hayward and Klay Thompson to expand his offensive repertoire. The Hawks have the confidence in him as they started him in 59 games last season. He is projected to continue to start and looks to improve on last season's averages of 9.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.8 treys.

    Kevin Huerter finished his rookie year in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers, scoring 17 points to go with five rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and five 3-pointers.

    The first-year guard out of Maryland got a lot of burn in his rookie season. He assumed a starting role in early December and wound up playing more total minutes than all but seven rookies. In that time frame he averaged 11.1 points (.420 shooting from the floor), 3.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals, and 2.0 three-pointers a game. As a fantasy asset, he was never able to emerge as anything more than a 3-point specialist, limiting him to just being a top-150/160 (8-cat/9-cat) over his span as a starter. That being said, he should only get better, and showed flashes of being both a capable passer and defender. Assuming the Hawks don’t make any additions that could force him out of the starting lineup Huerter could be a guy owners take a flier on at the end of drafts next season.

    Kevin Huerter returned from a one-game absence (mid-back pain) on Sunday and chimed in with nine points on 4-of-10 shooting, adding two 3s, four boards and a team-high six assists.

    Huerter has dealt with injuries on and off this season, so it should be interesting to see what the sharpshooter can do in 2019-20 once he's had a full off-season to rest up and recuperate.

    The Hawks will start Jaylen Adams, Kevin Huerter, Taurean Prince, Isaac Humphries and Alex Len in Sunday's game against the Bucks.

    Huerter was upgraded to probable just before being named a starter for this game. Huerter should be able to produce a decent game with Trae Young and John Collins out.

    Kevin Huerter (mid-back pain) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bucks.

    Justin Anderson may see a big bump in minutes especially with Huerter and DeAndre' Bembry being questionable heading into tomorrow's game. Nonetheless, Huerter has been a streaming option for points and threes but nothing more than that.
