Hawks News

Paul Millsap    F  Hawks

 

 

Paul Millsap (rest, knee) will not play against the Cavs on Friday. This is scheduled rest for Millsap and he earned it after a huge Friday. In a win over the Celtics, Millsap scored 26 points with 12 rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes. This is a huge win for the Hawks, who now have some wiggle room to make the postseason. Millsap could get another game off after Friday, as well.

Taurean Prince    F  Hawks

 

 

Taurean Prince scored a career-high 20 points during a 123-116 win over the Celtics on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes. You gotta love when a rookie shines with added opportunity and takes minutes away from some of the veterans. Prince's defense and positional versatility are two valuable things on his resume to get coach Mike Budenholzer to play him big minutes, which were on full display today. Plus, Paul Millsap is not going to play on Friday, so Prince should be looking at a significant role to close the season. He's likely going to be on a lot of championship rosters and should be owned in standard leagues.

Kent Bazemore    G/F  Hawks

 

 

Kent Bazemore scored 12 points with three rebounds, two assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday. He didn't have a hard cap on his minutes, but another limit on his playing time was Taurean Prince. The emergence of Prince has put a damper on Bazemore's fantasy value, but at least he turned in a strong line during the win. He'll be a questionable fantasy asset now that he's less likely to play 30 minutes. Plus, the Hawks may rest him if they have the chance.

Dwight Howard    C  Hawks

 

 

Dwight Howard scored 10 points with eight rebounds, one assist and three turnovers in 21 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday. He was trending down before the Paul Millsap (knee) injury because the Hawks would close quite a bit with Millsap at the five, and that was the plan again. Howard is more likely to have this kind of stat line than flirting with 20-20s like he was dropping lately.

Malcolm Delaney    G  Hawks

 

 

Malcolm Delaney was a DNP-CD on Thursday. The Hawks went with Jose Calderon for five minutes and no-PG lineups, as well. Delaney may get a chance if Dennis Schroder gets a night off.

Apr 06 - 11:28 PM

Kris Humphries    F/C  Hawks

 

 

Kris Humphries is not on the Hawks' active list for Thursday's game. Ryan Kelly is active tonight and Humphries simply isn't in the rotation with Dwight Howard, Paul Millsap and Ersan Ilyasova all healthy. Millsap will sit out Friday's game as a precaution, but even then we might not see Hump take the court.

Malcolm Delaney    G  Hawks

 

 

Malcolm Delaney (back) is active to face the Celtics on Thursday. He sounds like he will be able to play. The Hawks haven't really run out their two-PG lineups anymore because they have some depth, so Delaney can't be trusted in most leagues.

Kent Bazemore    F  Hawks

 

 

Bazemore (knee) will play and come off the bench for Thursday's matchup against the Celtics, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Kent Bazemore    G/F  Hawks

 

 

Kent Bazemore (knee) and Paul Millsap (knee) will come off the bench against the Celtics on Thursday. The Hawks will stick with their starting lineup from Sunday, so Tim Hardaway Jr.,Ersan Ilyasova and Taurean Prince will stick in the first unit. Bazemore will likely have a soft minutes limit, so he's a risky player to use in fantasy right now.
