    Omari Spellman (hip) was a limited participant in Monday's practice and is questionable for Wednesday, though he will travel with the team.

    The Hawks can afford to take their time with Spellman now that John Collins is back and dominating. He's only a deep-league or dynasty play but does have a nice skillset that should make him a fantasy target down the line.

    Omari Spellman (right hip soreness) will not play on Saturday vs. the Nuggets.

    Spellman has looked pretty good for a rookie but with John Collins starting and getting heavy run, his chances for production have been significantly reduced. Still, there's a chance he resurfaces with some very deep-league value.

    Omari Spellman (hip soreness) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game.

    Spellman was probable and then cleared before this turn of events. If the Hawks need some help at the backup power forward spot tonight they'll lean on Vince Carter and Justin Anderson.

    Omari Spellman (hip) is available for Wednesday's game.

    Spellman was added to the injury report this morning but was listed as probable, so there's no real need to worry here. His 3-point shooting gives him a path to deep-league value, especially as Taurean Prince's absence fiddles with the forward rotation, but Spellman is probably not going to be worth keeping tabs on in leagues with fewer than 16 teams.

    The Hawks have updated their injury report to include that Omari Spellman is probable tonight for the game against the Wizards.

    Spellman has been pushed back in the rotation after John Collins returned from his ankle injury but he has a very interesting stat set for his position. Taurean Prince is expected to be sidelined for the next 2-3 weeks and his absence will open up some minutes in the forward positions, so Spellman deserves consideration in deeper leagues.

    Omari Spellman scored 14 points on 4-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds and four steals in 20 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's win over the Heat.

    Spellman hit all four of his freebies for good measure and he has a really interesting stat set, but minutes and overall talent are big question marks for him looking forward. He's only worth looking at in very deep leagues and in Dynasty formats.

    Omari Spellman will play on Friday against the Celtics.

    Spellman has been upgraded to active for this one. With John Collins back, he's stuck as a limited backup, but there is still appeal for dynasty leagues. In a redraft league he probably doesn't need to be rostered for the time being.

    Omari Spellman (bruised right hip) is probable to play against the Celtics on Friday.

    Spellman might earn more minutes as the season goes on, but with John Collins returning it pretty much kills any chance at fantasy value he had. Still, the rookie showed an interesting stat set in a few games to start the year, and at least gained our attention somewhat.

    Omari Spellman (hip) will sit out on Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

    Spellman has had brief moments in the sun with a couple of double-doubles back in early November. With Collins back over the last two games the big man has seen his minutes shrink to 12 and 14, granted he did leave early for a injury. The 21-year-old still has future potential, but remain the backup PF playing around 15 minutes so he can be dropped in anything other than deep dynasty leagues

    Omari Spellman (hip bruise) is doubtful to play on Wednesday.

    Spellman left Monday's game with the injury. The Hawks will be able to get by at power forward since John Collins is back and apparently close to shaking his minutes limit. Justin Anderson may also factor into things more going forward as well. Spellman has some decent long-term upside but owners might need to wait for the second half of the season for that to turn into fantasy value.

    Omari Spellman suffered a right hip contusion in the fourth quarter in Monday’s matchup with the Clippers; he will not return.

    John Collins recently returned which spelled an end to Spellman’s value. Spellman started tonight but with this injury we might see Collins return to the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Raptors. Spellman and Collins could be the Hawks lineup of the future so keep an eye out on that combination as we approach the All-Star break.

    Omari Spellman is starting at power forward on Monday.

    Spellman was moved to the bench in favor of Alex Poythress on Saturday. He's been promoted again with Spellman out but will be back on the bench once John Collins is free from his minutes restriction. Feel free to use Spellman as you normally would.

    Omari Spellman started but logged just 14 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors.

    Spellman missed all three of his shots and put up just three rebounds in his stat line. He had shown some signs of life but his duds have been enough to knock him off of any fantasy value with John Collins returning soon.

    Omari Spellman posted his second straight double-double on Friday night, picking up 14 points and 10 rebounds against the Pistons.

    Spellman added two threes and a steal in 27 minutes. He's been a nice piece for Atlanta already, probably playing a little bit more than they would've expected. The return of John Collins is going to hurt him but we'd be surprised to see Spellman totally cast aside at this rate. Deep leaguers can feel good about rolling with him right now.
