  • Taurean Prince - F - Brooklyn Nets

    The Hawks and Nets have agreed on a trade that will send Taurean Prince to the Nets with a 2021 second-round pick in exchange for Allen Crabbe, Atlanta's 17th pick in 2019, and a protected 2020 first-round pick.

    The Hawks will be sending away one of their most tenured players who is on a team-friendly contract. It is clear that the Hawks are taking on Crabbe's contract for the draft picks so they can continue to build for the future. The Nets are closer to that future and they are attempting to shed salary so that they can attract top-tier free agents like Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving, Kemba Walker and others. Prince will benefit from this trade from the standpoint of winning but his fantasy value may suffer as a result. The Nets have plenty of talent on the wing and if they land a prized free agent, there may not be enough minutes for Prince to provide top-150 value. Continue to monitor what the Nets do in free agency as it is clear that there will be many more moves to come.

  • Taurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Taurean Prince finished his season in Wednesday's 134-135 loss to the Pacers, scoring 23 points to go with five rebounds and five 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

    Prince was highly touted heading into the season after he finished in the top-50 last year. Unfortunately he was marred with inconsistency, missing nearly 30 games, to finish the year with averages of 13.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.0 steal and 2.2 three-pointers per game. He finished with top-120/130 (8-cat/9-cat) value but finished outside the top-180 intotal value due to all of the missed games. The 25 year old forward will likely head into next season with dampered expectations, but will have a starting role (barring any Zion-related developments) in one of the league’s most fantasy friendly offenses. He could be a bounce-back candidate for next year.

    Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) delivered 15 points, a steal and a 3-pointer while shooting 5-of-11 from the field and 4-of-7 from the line on Friday night.

    Prince is back after missing three games because of the foot issue but the fact that he's still on the report, plus his two mediocre outings since returning, make us skeptical that he'll be putting up middle-round numbers down the stretch. He's good to plug into lineups if you'd normally use him but Prince's disappointing season is finishing on a fitting note. John Collins joined him in the empty scoring department tonight with 20 points, six rebounds and a steal on 8-of-18 shooting.

    Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) is probable to play in Friday's game against the Magic.

    Prince was able to return from his injury on Wednesday against the Sixers and had a pedestrian line in 33 minutes. He has the potential to produce greater outputs in that amount of playing time but with the Hawks now healthy on the wing, it will be hard to trust Prince to break out on Friday night.

  • Taurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Taurean Prince struggled in his return to action against the Sixers on Wednesday with 13 points on 4-of-12 shooting to go with three rebounds, two assists, a steal and two triples.

    Prince missed the previous three games with bilateral foot soreness and tonight he looked a bit rusty. He logged 33 minutes which is a good sign and if he's going to play that much you have to keep him there in your lineups.

    Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) will be available Wednesday vs. the Sixers.

    With Prince ruled in Wednesday, it muddles up the wing position as the Hawks will be near full strength. Look at Prince as a streamer who is capable of getting a smattering of stats across categories. Top-130 value in standard leagues.

  • Taurean Prince - F - Atlanta Hawks

    Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) is questionable to face the Sixers on Wednesday night.

    Prince has missed the last three games and tonight could make it four considering it's the second leg of a back-to-back. Justin Anderson has been starting in his place and is worth a look if you need defensive stats. Most of the Hawks are on the injury report tonight, and while only a few are expected to actually sit it would open up lots of minutes for everyone else. DeAndre' Bembry and Kent Bazemore would be other big beneficiaries.

    The Hawks have downgraded Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) to out for Tuesday's tilt against the Spurs.

    It's unclear how much more time Prince will miss, but Justin Anderson started in his place the previous game and will look to do so again. DeAndre' Bembry and Kent Bazemore will see additional minutes as well, and each are worth a look as dart throws to fill out your lineup on a miniscule DFS slate.

    Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) is doubtful ahead of Tuesday's game with the Spurs.

    Prince was cleared to play on Sunday afternoon but was made a late scratch, so hopefully he isn't out much longer and the Hawks are just being cautious with a back-to-back across time zones up on Tuesday and Wednesday. Justin Anderson had a nice game starting in Prince's place while Kent Bazemore is in line for more minutes off the bench as well.

    Taurean Prince (bilateral foot soreness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Bucks.

    In an unexpected reversal, Prince will actually stay on the bench in this one after Lloyd Pierce confirmed him as a starter earlier in the morning. Kent Bazemore will be available, and should see more minutes in Prince's absence.

    Taurean Prince is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bucks with bilateral foot soreness.

    Justin Anderson drew the start for him last time but didn't do much in 24 minutes of action. Kent Bazemore (left adductor strain) is also questionable and if both payers miss time, DeAndre' Bembry could be in for a lot of playing time.
