Hawks' Ersan Ilyasova: Shines Saturday in place of injured Millsap
Ilyasova started at power forward and submitted 23 points (7-11 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), four rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block across 27 minutes in a 113-97 loss to the Trail Blazers on Saturday.
Ilyasova didn't disappoint while making his first start in a Hawks uniform, leading the team in scoring and picking up the slack with Paul Millsap (knee) out. Assuming Millsap's injury doesn't prove to be significant, Ilyasova could be headed back to the bench before long, but he'll be an appealing, low-cost DFS option for any starts he receives from here on out. Ilyasova is averaging 15.4 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.1 three-pointers and 1.9 assists in 27.8 minutes per game in 41 starts this season, 40 of which came with the 76ers.
