Humphries posted five points (2-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-4 FT), eight rebounds and two blocked shots across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 104-86 loss to the Pacers. With the Hawks locked in for the playoffs, Humphries drew the start with Paul Millsap (rest) on the bench along with the rest of Atlanta's first unit. The 32-year-old journeyman performed admirably while Millsap was out with injury, and he may earn some more playing time during Atlanta's playoff run as a result. He's only averaging 12 minutes of usage per game this year, so one shouldn't expect Humphries to make a huge impact moving forward.
Humphries will start at center for Wednesday's tilt with the Pacers, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The Hawks are resting a ton of players Wednesday, which includes both Dwight Howard and Paul Millsap. That allows Humphries to pick up the start at center and he should be in line for a hefty workload, which could make him an intriguing and cheap DFS play for Wednesday's slate of games.
Humphries (neck) will be available off the bench for Sunday's game against the Cavaliers, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports. Humphries had been listed as probable on the Hawks' injury report, so it was always expected that he'd be available for the contest. The veteran big man turned in a productive outing Friday against the Cavaliers with 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal in 25 minutes, but expect his minutes to take a steep hit now that he's back on the bench with Paul Millsap (rest) and Dwight Howard (rest) reclaiming their usual starting roles in the frontcourt.
Humphries is expected to play Sunday against Cleveland, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Humphries popped up on the injury report Saturday with a strained neck, but the expectation is that he'll play through the ailment Sunday. With Paul Millsap resting, Humphries started Friday's game against the Cavs, finishing with 12 points, seven rebounds and four assists in 25 minutes.
Humphries will start at center Friday against the Cavs, Hawks play-by-play announcer Bob Rathbun reports. Humphries will enter Atlanta's starting lineup in place of Dwight Howard, who is being handed the night off. Considering the Cavs will be without their starting center, Tristan Thompson (thumb), as well, Humphries should like his chances of making an impact, particularly because Paul Millsap will be rested for the Hawks, too, opening even more frontcourt minutes for Humphries. In two starts this season, Humphries has averaged 5.5 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 21.0 minutes per game.
