Spellman put up 14 points (5-10, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes Friday in the Hawks' 124-109 loss to the Pistons. Spellman drew his fourth straight start at power forward and seems to be settling in nicely on the top unit, as Friday's performance marked his second consecutive double-double. Though the rookie's fantasy value will likely take a significant hit once John Collins (ankle) is ready to make his season debut, Spellman could be worth a flier while he continues to make the most of his increased opportunities. He's shown a diverse skill set over the past two games with averages of 16.0 points, 10.0 boards, 2.5 treys, 2.0 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.0 steal across 27.5 minutes.
Spellman scored a team-high 18 points (6-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and a steal in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 112-107 loss to the Knicks. It was the best performance of the rookie's brief career to date, as Spellman set new personal bests in minutes, points, boards and blocks. He'll continue to start at power forward as long as John Collins (ankle) remains sidelined, but Spellman's role and court time outlook are hazy beyond that.
Spellman had two points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four rebounds, and one assist in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 113-102 loss to the Hornets. Spellman has showcased the skillset of a modern big offensively, stepping out beyond the arc and stretching the defense. However, his time as the team's starting power forward (and as a fringe fantasy option) could be coming to an end soon with John Collins (ankle) on the mend. As a result, those relying on Spellman in deeper leagues should be sure to track the sophomore's status.
Spellman will start over Vince Carter for Saturday's game against the Heat, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports. Spellman will be making his first career start. In the four games this season that he's seen at least 20 minutes, Spellman is averaging 8.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.0 assist.
Spellman totaled 11 points (4-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six rebounds and one steal across 23 minutes in Monday's 113-92 loss to the 76ers. Spellman now has two games on the young season in which he has broken double-digit points, showing flashes of good shooting from all over the floor. Maybe his work on the offensive glass (4 offensive rebounds) Monday night will open up more opportunities for the rookie to showcase his versatility on the offensive end.
