Dedmon (ankle) will miss the remainder of the season due to ongoing soreness in his left ankle, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The good news is that Dedmon will avoid surgery, but he'll still undergo a procedure to address the issue that's plagued him on-and-off this season. In Dedmon's absence, expect Alex Len to pick up increased minutes at center down the stretch.
Dedmon (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game against Milwaukee. Dedmon has been ruled out of Sunday's game due to left ankle soreness. In his place, look for Alex Len to see an increased workload.
Dedmon totaled 18 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one steal across 23 minutes in the Hawks' win over the Pelicans on Tuesday. Dedmon just missed a double-double in Tuesday's win, scoring 18 points and grabbing nine boards. Over his last five games, Dedmon is averaging a healthy 14.2 points and 9.4 rebounds in 25.4 minutes. He's on a roll right now, and the production is certainly sustainable with the Hawks playing well and winning their last three games.
Dedmon generated 18 points (6-8 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 28 minutes Thursday in the Hawks' 117-114 win over the Jazz. It was a strong outing across the board for Dedmon, who shot well from the field, three-point range and the charity stripe and put up good numbers on the defensive end. The center's playing time remains somewhat variable from game to game, but aside from a poor field-goal percentage, he's generally been useful on the whole since returning from a two-game absence due to a knee injury earlier this month. In his first six games back from injury, Dedmon is nearly averaging a double-double (9.2 points, 9.2 rebounds) while chipping in 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.5 triples and 1.0 block.
Dedmon finished with 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt), 14 rebounds, two assists and two steals over 25 minutes in the Hawks' loss to the Magic on Sunday. Dedmon continues to play on a minutes restriction while dealing with knee problems, but he didn't seem to be affected by the injury in Sunday's loss. He produced his second-highest rebounding total of the season after grabbing 13 boards on Saturday night at Boston. Dedmon isn't a consistent scorer or rebounder, but he's been prone to stretches of high-level production, so fantasy owners should continue to roll with him while he's hot.
