Ersan Ilyasova    F  Hawks

 

 

Ersan Ilyasova picked up a DNP-CD on Saturday. As a 30-year-old veteran on a rebuilding team, the Hawks have every reason to prioritize minutes for guys like Tyler Cavanaugh, DeAndre' Bembry and even Luke Babbitt (whose contract isn't guaranteed until mid-December). This is your queue to cut Ilyasova in all but the deepest leagues.

Dewayne Dedmon    C  Hawks

 

 

Dewayne Dedmon followed up Wednesday's monster game with six points, eight boards and two assists in 22 minutes vs. the Celtics on Saturday. Dedmon went off for 20 & 14 with a complete line on Wednesday, hitting 9-of-10 shots in just 24 minutes of action -- efficient shooting is a pillar of his fantasy value, but that was obviously an outlier. The 28-year-old big man should hover around top-100 roto value all year, while dropping a few rounds lower in leagues that don't value FG%.

Luke Babbitt    SF  Hawks

 

 

Babbitt (back) will be in the starting lineup Saturday against the Celtics. Babbitt exited Wednesday's win over the Kings with back spasms but will return to the starting lineup Saturday night. Look for Ersan Ilyasova to come off the bench in the contest but he could see additional action if the Hawks' decide to monitor Babbitt's minutes.

Luke Babbitt    F  Hawks

 

 

Luke Babbitt (back) will start against the Celtics on Saturday. He went through warmups and apparently everything went well for him. Babbitt has a lot of competition for his minutes now, so he will have to play well to keep his starting role.

Luke Babbitt    F  Hawks

 

 

If Luke Babbitt (back) is OK after warmups, he will be in the starting lineup against the Celtics on Saturday. In other words, he's still a game-time call, but he is on track to play. Babbitt would be starting next to Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore, Taurean Prince and Dewayne Dedmon. With guys like DeAndre Bembry back, we may see Ersan Ilyasova and Babbitt start to see their minutes fade.

DeAndre' Bembry    SF  Hawks

 

 

Bembry (wrist) is available for Saturday's game against the Celtics, Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Bembry will be available, but there's no guarantee he'll play. Coach Mike Budenholzer said that if Bembry does take the floor, it will be in "short bursts" and his total minutes will be "based on feel." Until we know more about his potential role, he makes for a risky fantasy option.

DeAndre Bembry    F  Hawks

 

 

DeAndre Bembry (wrist) is available to play against the Celtics on Saturday and will play shorter stints upon his return. To be clear, he's not a complete lock to play after his month out of the lineup. Bembry was called probable yesterday and he should have a role with multiple positions on the perimeter. He's likely to start slow, but the Hawks losing so many games could move him along faster. He's only a pickup in deeper leagues for now.

Isaiah Taylor    PG  Hawks

 

 

Taylor is expected to miss one-to-two weeks after being diagnosed with a retina tear, Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Taylor was poked in the eye during Friday's practice. He's been playing a significant role on the Hawks this year, posting 6.2 points and 2.4 assists across 16.1 minutes per game. While he's sidelined, Malcolm Delaney is a strong candidate to absorb a significant chunk of his minutes, while it's possible the team opts to bring Tyler Dorsey or Josh Magette up from the G-League to help out.

Isaiah Taylor    G  Hawks

 

 

Isaiah Taylor has been diagnosed with a retinal tear and will be sidelined for 1-2 weeks. Taylor suffered the injury when he got poked in the eye on Friday during practice. Malcolm Delaney will now inherit all of the backup PG minutes behind Dennis Schroder. The Hawks are also expected to call up Josh Magette from the G-League. Taylor should be on the waiver wire in all fantasy formats.

Isaiah Taylor    G  Hawks

 

 

Coach Mike Budenholzer said Isaiah Taylor (eye bruise) is expected to miss "a few games." Budenholzer said Taylor got poked in the eye on Friday during practice. Malcolm Delaney will see an uptick in playing time with Taylor on the sidelines. Coach Bud also said the team would consider promoting Josh Magette from the G-League.
