Hawks' Ersan Ilyasova: Scores 13 points as starter

Ilyasova recorded 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-9 3Pt), six rebounds and one assist across 28 minutes in a 105-90 loss to the Hornets on Monday.

Ilyasova got the starting nod in place of Paul Millsap who missed Monday's game with a knee injury, and he recorded his most minutes as a member of the Hawks. Ilyasova should be in line to start again Wednesday against the Wizards with Millsap already ruled out for that game as well. The Turkish stretch power forward isn't worth picking up in standard fantasy formats since Millsap not expected to miss extensive time, but his ability to knock down threes and contribute defensively makes him an intriguing cheap DFS option while Millsap remains out of the Atlanta's lineup in the near-term.
