    Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Strong all-around effort Monday

    Onyeka Okongwu racked up 12 points (6-9 FG), eight rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal across 36 minutes during Monday's 121-114 win over the Bucks.Okongwu and Gorgui Dieng (DNP-CD) have been splitting the void left by Clint Capela (ankle). However, Dieng underwhelmed in two starts, paving the way for Okongwu to exceed 35 minutes for the second time this season. Okongwu has fringe fantasy appeal with this type of role, and it's unclear when exactly Capela is likely to return.

    Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Produces well off bench

    Onyeka Okongwu tallied 12 points (6-6 FG), five rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench Saturday in the Atlanta Hawks' 117-108 loss to the Knicks.After a recent two-game run in the starting five, Okongwu has come off the bench for the past two contests, as the Hawks have turned to Gorgui Dieng to fill in for Clint Capela (ankle) on the top unit. Okongwu has still received more minutes than Dieng in both games since moving back to the bench, and the second-year center turned in one of his better all-around efforts of the season Saturday. The Hawks continue to evaluate Capela on a game-by-game basis, but if his absence turns into an extended one, Okongwu could have some value in 12-team leagues.

    Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Starts, plays 34 minutes in win

    Onyeka Okongwu finished with 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal in 34 minutes during Thursday's 98-96 victory over the 76ers.Playing in just his third game of the season after missing the first two months of the season while recovering from surgery, Okongwu made his first start with Clint Capela (COVID-19) sidelined. The second-year big man had a minutes restriction Wednesday against Orlando, but that was apparently lifted Thursday, as he played a team-high 34 minutes in the surprising victory. Dating back to last season, Okongwu has shown plenty of encouraging flashes, but when Capela and John Collins are healthy, the USC product will be relegated to a reserve role. In the short term, however, he's a very appealing streaming option amid the Atlanta Hawks' ongoing COVID issues.
