Hawks News

Mike Muscala    F/C  Hawks



Mike Muscala (ankle) is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. Sacramento. It looks like Wednesday will mark Muscala's sixth straight game on the sidelines, which will translate to more minutes for John Collins. Muscala isn't worth hanging onto in most formats.

Ersan Ilyasova    F  Hawks



Ersan Ilyasova (knee) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Kings. Ilyasova has spent the past eight games on the sidelines, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him come off the bench until his conditioning gets where it needs to be. That said, once he is fully up to speed, Luke Babbitt figures to head back to the bench and he might drop from the rotation entirely with how well John Collins has been playing.

Marco Belinelli    SG  Hawks



Belinelli contributed 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-6 3Pt), four steals, three rebounds, and three assists in 27 minutes during Monday's 106-105 loss to the Pelicans. Belinelli matched his career high in steals while scoring 14 points or more for the fourth straight contest. Prior to that, he had two straight scoreless showings and two more single-digit efforts, but he also averaged 15.5 points through the first six tilts of 2017-18. As long as Belinelli is earning close to 30 minutes per, he is a good bet to score in double figures on most nights. Nevertheless, defense is not what he's known for, so don't be surprised if his current average of 1.3 steals dips as the season progresses.

Tyler Cavanaugh    PF  Hawks



Cavanaugh contributed 16 points (6-7 FG, 4-4 3Pt), six rebounds, and two assists in 18 minutes during Monday's 106-105 loss to the Pelicans. Cavanaugh stepped up with Mike Muscala (ankle) sidelined for a fifth straight game and Ersan Ilyasova (knee) still out as well. As a two-way contract player, Cavanaugh will likely spend most of his time this season with the Erie BayHawks of the G League. However, he certainly proved capable of filling in on Monday, posting career highs across the board.

Marco Belinelli    G  Hawks



Marco Belinelli played through his sore achilles on Monday and hit 5-of-10 shots and four 3-pointers for 14 points, three rebounds three assists and four steals in 27 minutes. With the achilles scare behind him, Belinelli is worth picking up if he was dropped in your league. He's averaging 15.5 points, 2.5 steals and 3.0 3-pointers in his last four games, despite the injury issue.

Dennis Schroder    G  Hawks



Dennis Schroder hit just 5-of-18 shots and missed all four of his 3-pointers for 11 points, two rebounds, five assists and two steals in 33 minutes of Monday's 106-105 loss to the Pelicans. Schroder's shot is broken right now, as he's hit just 7-of-34 shots over his last two games and is 0-for-9 from downtown in his last three. He'll get back on track soon enough, but he got his fantasy owners off to a rough start in this one. He had scored at least 16 points in every game this season until Saturday's seven-point dud, and had his second lowest scoring total with tonight's 11.

Tyler Cavanaugh    F  Hawks



Tyler Cavanaugh, who was signed to a two-way contract a little over a week ago, exploded to hit 6-of-7 shots and 4-of-4 3-pointers for a career-high 16 points, six rebounds and two assists in 18 minutes. Wow. This was his fourth game of action for the Hawks and he had scored a total of three points prior to this explosion. There's no need to pick him up right now, but the Hawks are banged up and if he's going to make shots, he might continue to get some run. But chances are that this will probably end up being one of his best games of the season. Just keep an eye on him if you're in a really deep league.

Kent Bazemore    G/F  Hawks



Kent Bazemore had 22 points, four rebounds, seven assists, three steals and three 3-pointers on 7-of-15 shooting in 30 minutes of Monday's loss to the Pelicans. The 22 points tied his season high and he's actually hit that number in two of his last three games. Bazemore took a hard fall on his left arm and elbow late in the game but was able to stay in and shoot free throws, meaning he should be fine. He's hot right now, averaging 15.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five games, so make sure he's in your lineup whenever possible right now. This could be the season Bazemore lives up to the hype.


Nov 13 - 10:29 PM

Luke Babbitt    F  Hawks



Luke Babbitt started again for the Hawks and hit 4-of-11 shots (all 3-pointers) for 12 points, three rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes of Monday's one-point loss to the Pelicans. Babbitt has been starting for a little more than a week now and is averaging 10.8 points 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.4 blocks and 2.6 3-pointers on 46 percent shooting in those five games. He's been up and down like a yo-yo, but is getting 31 minutes a night, shooting the ball well and knocking down threes. He's worth a look in standard leagues as long as he's starting for the Hawks.


Nov 13 - 10:23 PM

Mike Muscala    PF  Hawks



Muscala (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Pelicans. Muscala came into Monday with a doubtful designation, so he was never expected to take the court. It will mark his fifth straight absence and his status remain unclear for Wednesday's game against the Kings as well. With Ersan Ilyasova (knee) still out as well, Luke Babbitt will pick up another start at power forward, with John Collins seeing a bigger role off the bench in the frontcourt as well.
