Top Gorgui Dieng News

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Not on injury report

    Dieng (personal) isn't on the injury report for Saturday's game against the Raptors, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Dieng missed Thursday's game against Chicago due to personal reasons, but he'll be available against the Raptors. However, he hasn't been a consistent part of Atlanta's rotation recently.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Out Thursday

    Dieng is out Thursday due to personal reasons, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

    Dieng hasn't been a consistent part of the rotation since late December, and that's unlikely to change even when he returns. Clint Capela and Onyeka Okongwu continue to hold things down at center.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Scores eight points in blowout

    Dieng posted eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt) and six rebounds in eight minutes during Tuesday's 133-112 win over Indiana.

    Dieng saw his first game action since Jan. 28 thanks to the Hawks' comfortable lead for the majority of the game. The veteran big man registered at least eight points and six rebounds for the first time since Oct. 21. Barring garbage time, Dieng doesn't figure to be a part of Atlanta's rotation moving forward.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Available vs. Heat

    Dieng (illness) will be available for Friday's matchup against the Heat, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

    With Clint Capela back from a six-game absence, Dieng's role will presumably be reduced heavily, though with Capela on a minutes limit Friday, Dieng could still see some run. He'll be competing with Onyeka Okongwu for backup minutes.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Questionable against Miami

    Dieng is questionable for Friday's game against Miami due to a non-COVID illness, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

    Dieng has played a minimal role across the last two games, as he's totaled an assist and a block in four minutes during that time. If his illness prevents him from suiting up Friday, his absence shouldn't significantly impact Atlanta's rotation.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Shifts to bench role

    Dieng isn't starting Monday's game against the Bucks, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Dieng served as a starter in each of the last two games but averaged just 4.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in 14.0 minutes per contest. Onyeka Okongwu will join the starting five Monday.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Plays just 15 minutes despite start

    Dieng finished with two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds, one block and one steal in 15 minutes during Friday's 124-118 loss to the Heat.

    Dieng was a non-factor in the loss, although he did manage to rack up a pair of defensive stats. It's unclear whether this was simply a matchup-based decision or if Dieng will hold on to the starting role until Clint Capela returns from injury. Onyeka Okongwu (five points, six rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal) was solid in his 16 minutes, and if he can at least hold down that kind of a role the rest of the way, he's a name to consider in deeper formats.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Starting Friday

    Dieng will draw the start at center in Friday's matchup with the Heat, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Dieng will enter the starting lineup for the second time this season. He provided eight points, five rebounds, one block and one steal across 22 minutes in his first start.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Off injury report

    Dieng (COVID-19 protocols) is off the injury report ahead of Wednesday's contest against the Heat, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Dieng will be available to make his return following six missed games due to protocols. With Clint Capela (ankle) doubtful, Dieng is in line to see reserve center minutes behind Onyeka Okongwu.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Dieng (conditioning) cleared the NBA's health and safety protocols Tuesday, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    With Dieng's removal, the Hawks have officially cleared all players from COVID-19 protocols, but they are still dealing with injuries to Clint Capela (ankle), Cam Reddish (ankle) and De'Andre Hunter (wrist). While he's cleared protocols, it's unclear if he will be available for Wednesday's game against the Heat. The 6-foot-10 big man hasn't played since Dec. 27, so he may need to regain his conditioning before returning to action from a lengthy absence.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Enters COVID protocols

    Dieng was placed in the NBA's COVID-19 protocols Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The big man becomes the latest Hawk to enter protocols, as the team's total has now reached 12 players. He'll likely miss at least the next two games -- Wednesday at CHI; Friday at CLE -- but could test out of protocols early next week.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Coming off bench

    Dieng isn't starting Thursday's game against the 76ers, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

    Dieng made his first start of the season in Wednesday's loss to Orlando and totaled eight points, five rebounds, an assist and a block in 23 minutes. However, Onyeka Okongwu will draw the start Thursday.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Enters starting lineup

    Dieng will start Wednesday's game against the Magic, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Clint Capela is out due to the COVID-19 protocols, so Dieng will make his first start of the season. John Collins and Onyeka Okongwu should also see more run at center for Atlanta.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Hits three triples in cameo Monday

    Dieng chipped in nine points (3-4 FG, 3-4 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one block across 13 minutes during Monday's 121-110 win over Minnesota.

    Dieng logged 13 minutes in the win, the most court time he has seen since late October. That in itself highlights exactly where he fits in the Hawks rotation. Despite a fantasy-friendly skillset, Dieng has not been able to carve out a consistent role and can be left for those in the deepest of leagues.

  • Hawks' Gorgui Dieng: Grabs five rebounds off bench

    Dieng didn't score (0-1 FG, 0-2 FT) but added five rebounds and one assist across seven minutes during Thursday's loss to Washington.

    The center managed to grab at least five rebounds for a fifth straight matchup to begin the season, as Dieng's primary duty off the bench is to control the paint. Dieng is currently averaging 7.2 rebounds throughout 13.2 minutes. The 2013 first-round pick has also totaled 22 points.
