    Omari Spellman scored 18 points with 10 rebounds on 6-of-11 shooting on Wednesday in a loss to the Knicks.

    It was Spellman's first career double-double and he also added four assists, one steal and three blocks to the stat sheet. He should be owned in deep leagues until John Collins comes back and he has definitely earned a role even when Collins does return.

    Omari Spellman started at power forward in Saturday's game against the Heat, scoring seven points on 3-of-4 shooting with four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and a trey in 20 minutes.

    Spellman could be somebody to watch in deep leagues but he has a lot of questions to answer before folks take the plunge. John Collins returns at some point soon, too.

    Omari Spellman will start at power forward on Saturday against the Heat.

    The Heat run big so the move makes sense and we need to see Spellman do something consistently before looking at him as an add.

    Omari Spellman scored 17 points on Sunday, hitting 6-of-9 from the field with four 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Cavs.

    Cleveland allowed the Hawks to go off in this one, and a number of players had big lines. Spellman played double the minutes of starting power forward Vince Carter and might be worth your time in deep leagues if you need some threes, especially out-of-position.

    Omari Spellman (left ankle sprain) is available for Sunday's game.

    Spellman was originally listed as probable. With Alex Len disappointing so far, perhaps Spellman can throw his hat in the ring for frontcourt minutes while the Hawks are shorthanded.

    Omari Spellman has been upgraded to questionable for Sunday's game.

    Spellman sat out on Friday because of a sprained left ankle. If he can give it a go he'll have a decent shot at minutes up front given the uninspiring play of Alex Len.

    Omari Spellman will miss Friday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Spellman seemed to injure his ankle in the Hawks season opener. With the team already struggling in the frontcourt, this doesn't bode well. Spellman was meant to spell the Hawks in the absence of Dewayne Dedmon and John Collins. Now they will turn to the likes of Alex Len and Miles Plumlee to shoulder most of the load.

    Omari Spellman (left ankle sprain) is doubtful for Friday's game versus the Grizzlies.

    It seems Spellman injured his ankle during the Hawks season opener. The Hawks are already depleted with big men and will have to rely on Alex Len, Taurean Prince, Miles Plumlee and Alex Poythress for their front court minutes until Spellman, Dewayne Dedmon and John Collins are healthy enough to play.

    Omari Spellman made his preseason debut on Sunday afternoon and went right into the starting lineup, producing 10 points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers.

    Spellman also went 4-of-10 from the field in 28 minutes. The rookie is competing with a handful of talented players for frontcourt minutes but provides a very different dynamic given his shooting range, so you can't necessarily write today off as a result of Dewayne Dedmon and John Collins sitting out. It's unlikely that Spellman gets enough minutes to put himself on the map in standard leagues but deep league owners should keep an eye on him going forward.

    Dewayne Dedmon, Justin Anderson, Daniel Hamilton and Taurean Prince will all sit out on Friday night but Omari Spellman is not on the injury report.

    All of the absences are expected, and Prince is only dealing with an illness whereas the rest of the injured Hawks will need to clear some benchmarks before returning to the court. Spellman missed time with a shin issue but has played well in practice the last few days, giving him the green light for tomorrow.

    The Hawks are expecting Omari Spellman to play in Friday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Spellman missed Atlanta's first preseason tilt with a shin issue but he's had some good showings at this week's practices and seems ready to go. His shooting gives the Hawks a different look up front and he might be able to hold down a rotation spot while Dewayne Dedmon is sidelined.

    The Hawks are hoping that Omari Spellman will return to the court by Friday's preseason game.

    Spellman sat out last night's preseason opener with a shin injury. It's not expected to be serious but there's no need to rush the rookie back into action. He's competing for backup minutes and should be able to outplay Miles Plumlee when he's healthy.

    Omari Spellman will not play against the Pelicans on Monday.

    Spellman has been held out of training camp and has only been cleared for non-contact 5-on-5 so this news is certainly no surprise. Once healthy, the rookie power forward is expected to battle for bench minutes in the Hawks frontcourt. At this point he shouldn't be owned in standard leagues as the Hawks have a number of better frontcourt options.

    Omari Spellman (shin) has progressed and participated in non-contact portions of practice on Sunday.

    Hawks' coach Lloyd Pierce has said that Spellman has been progressing well, but with him still not being able to take contact he'll probably be missing the first few games at least. He's backing up John Collins this season so he most likely won't have much fantasy value anyway.
