Mike Muscala    F/C  Hawks

 

 

Mike Muscala (ankle) has been ruled out of Friday's game vs. Memphis. Muscala hasn't appeared in a game since November 3rd and is still without an official timetable to return. He should be left on waivers.

John Collins    PF  Hawks

 

 

Collins registered 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-3 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 20 minutes Thursday in Atlanta's loss to Detroit. Collins (shoulder) returned to action after a six-game absence Thursday against Detroit. He provided some offensive firepower on a night where the Hawks severely lacked it. Even though he was on a slight minutes restriction, Collins was one of two players to score in double-digits for the Hawks. The rookie's ability to get buckets has been a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners. As long as he remains healthy, he will be a player worth owning.

Marco Belinelli    G  Hawks

 

 

Marco Belinelli played just 10 minutes and hit 2-of-3 shots (one 3-pointer) for five points and nothing else in Thursday's loss to the Pistons. Belinelli has cooled off, scoring eight points on Tuesday and five tonight, seeing limited minutes in both games. He could bounce back at any time, but he's someone you might be able to cut if you're looking to pick up a hot free agent.

Tyler Cavanaugh    F/C  Hawks

 

 

Tyler Cavanaugh played just eight minutes off the bench Thursday, but hit 3-of-3 shots and two 3-pointers for nine points and two rebounds. Cavanaugh made his first start on Tuesday but the Hawks chose to roll with Miles Plumlee against Andre Drummond tonight. It didn't pay off as Plumlee was bad and Drummond went off for one of the best all-around lines of his career. Cavanaugh is still worth a look as long as Dewayne Dedmon (leg) is out.

John Collins    F  Hawks

 

 

John Collins returned from a six-game absence with a shoulder injury and picked up where he left off, hitting 7-of-10 shots for 15 points, seven rebounds, a steal and a block off the bench in Thursday's 105-91 loss to the Pistons. Welcome back! If Collins was dropped in your league, go get him before someone else does. He should get a ton of minutes for the tanking Hawks the rest of the way, as long as his shoulder injury is officially behind him. He played 20 minutes tonight, which isn't bad considering how long he was out.

Miles Plumlee    F/C  Hawks

 

 

Miles Plumlee didn't attempt a shot, had just three rebounds and a steal, and had a +/- of -19 against Andre Drummond on Thursday. The stat means that the Hawks were outscored by 19 points when Plumlee was on the floor, and while the Hawks started him to try to slow down Drummond (it didn't work), Tyler Cavanaugh might be a better option at center for Atlanta until Dewayne Dedmon is back in action. Cavanaugh played just eight minutes and had nine points, two rebounds and two 3-pointers in the loss.

Taurean Prince    F  Hawks

 

 

Taurean Prince hit just 1-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for four points, four rebounds and four assists in 23 minutes on Thursday. Oops. He was on fire on Tuesday when he had a career-high 24 points, seven rebounds and six assists, and it appears that he and Ersan Ilyasova traded games tonight, as Ilyasova was pretty bad on Tuesday. Prince will bounce back, so don't panic and cut him.

Ersan Ilyasova    F  Hawks

 

 

Ersan Ilyasova hit 10-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 23 points, four rebounds and one assist in Thursday's 105-91 loss to the Pistons. Ghostface bounced back from Tuesday's 3-of-11 shooting night and looked much better tonight. He's scored at least 20 points in three of his last four games and should continue to get plenty of run for the tanking Hawks. If he was dropped after Tuesday's dud, think about picking him up.

Luke Babbitt    SF  Hawks

 

 

Babbitt (back) is available to play during Thursday's game against the Pistons, KL Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports. As expected, Babbitt will be available to play Thursday after originally coming into the contest listed as probable. He's averaged 18.1 mintes over the past seven games, though could see a reduction in workload with John Collins (shoulder) back.

Tyler Cavanaugh    PF  Hawks

 

 

Cavanaugh will come off the pine for Thursday's game against the Pistons, KL Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports. In a surprising move, Cavanaugh got his first start of the year Tuesday, bumping Miles Plumlee to the bench. In the process, he racked up 11 points, nine rebounds, one assist and one steal. He'll head back to the bench Thursday, however, as Plumlee returns to the starting five. John Collins (shoulder) has been cleared to play as well, which could cut into Cavanaugh's workload. The situation is probably worth monitoring, as Cavanaugh has been a productive fantasy player over the past four games.
