  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Back to bench

    Griffin will come off the bench for Tuesday's game against Miami.

    Griffin saw extended minutes in the season finale on April 9, playing 29 minutes with 13 points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one three-pointer. The Hawks will be at full strength against the Heat, so it will be interesting to see how the Hawks deploy Griffin with the second unit.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Starting season finale

    Griffin is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Celtics, Sean Grande of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Griffin is one of several non-regulars that will feature in the starting lineup for Sunday's season finale, as the Hawks decided to rest their first unit for Tuesday's Play-In matchup against the Heat on Tuesday.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Drills four triples

    Griffin closed with 16 points (6-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 134-116 victory over Washington.

    Griffin ran hot from beyond the arc Wednesday, with the four triples matching a season-high total for the rookie. Though the 19-year-old typically doesn't see a high enough volume of touches to make a consistent impact in the scoring column, he's usually been efficient with his opportunities. He maintains rates of 38.7 percent from three-point range, 46.7 percent from the field and 90.9 percent from the free-throw line over 71 appearances on the season.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Flops in loss Sunday

    Griffin closed Sunday's 123-119 loss to Memphis with two points (1-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound and one assist across 13 minutes.

    Griffin offered very little in the loss, falling well short of the mark in terms of tangible fantasy production. After playing at least 18 minutes in five consecutive games, Griffin scaled back his playing time, bringing to an end any streaming appeal he had been able to muster over the past 10 days.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Offers lift off bench

    Griffin finished with 15 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and two blocks in 20 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 126-118 loss to the Spurs.

    Griffin's solid two-way effort wasn't enough to help the Hawks come away with a win against the non-contending Spurs, but the rookie may have at least helped solidify himself as a rotation player moving forward. Though he's reached the 20-minute mark in the last two games in large part due to the absence of Jalen Johnson (hamstring), Griffin has notably outproduced fellow reserve wing Saddiq Bey (six points on 25 percent shooting from the field) in both of those contests. Griffin may have a decent chance of sticking in at least a 10-to-15-minute role even if Johnson is cleared for the Hawks' next game Tuesday versus the Pistons.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Back in rotation, barely

    Griffin finished with two points (0-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds over nine minutes during Saturday's 134-125 loss to the Celtics.

    Griffin saw actual playing time for the first time in over a week, albeit a modest nine minutes. It appears Quinn Snyder simply doesn't have a regular spot in the rotation for Griffin, basically ending any hopes of him being fantasy-relevant again. For now, managers can safely ignore him in all formats.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Chips in off bench Wednesday

    Griffin racked up 12 points (6-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and two rebounds in 15 minutes during Wednesday's 122-101 loss to the Knicks.

    It's the first time in five games Griffin has scored in double digits, but the teenage rookie was the only member of Atlanta's second unit to manage more than eight Wednesday. The 2022 first-round pick has yet to play 20 minutes off the bench in a game during February, and the addition of Saddiq Bey at the trade deadline creates some additional competition for court time and touches. Griffin's upside remains intriguing, but the Duke product might have a hard time making a consistent fantasy impact coming out of the All-Star break.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Returns to bench

    Griffin isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Pelicans.

    Trae Young's return from an illness will push Griffin back to the bench Tuesday. The rookie forward is averaging 13.5 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.3 steals in 28.7 minutes across 11 games starting this season.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Starting Saturday

    Griffin will start Saturday's game against the Nuggets.

    With Trae Young (illness) out, Dejounte Murray will slide down to point guard while AJ Griffin starts at shooting guard. In 10 starts, Griffin has averaged 13.3 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.4 steals in 29.0 minutes.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Goes 3-of-4 from deep

    Griffin had 13 points (4-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and one rebound across 21 minutes during Monday's 129-125 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    The first-round pick out of Duke isn't doing enough to warrant much fantasy attention, though it's encouraging that coach Nate McMillan is comfortable entrusting him with 17-to-22 minutes off the bench on most nights. In the month of January, Griffin is averaging 8.1 points on 57.7 percent shooting, including a red-hot 53.5 percent from downtown (2.9 3PA/G).

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Perfect from perimeter in loss

    Griffin racked up 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-3 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds and one steal over 23 minutes during Saturday's 122-118 loss to the Hornets.

    Griffin was a perfect from downtown and has now scored in double digits in four of his past five games. However, his peripheral numbers during that same five-game stretch -- he's averaging 2.2 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.2 steals and 0.0 blocks -- aren't strong enough to make him a pickup outside of deeper leagues.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Scores in double figures

    Griffin supplied 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt) and four rebounds in 23 minutes during Saturday's 114-103 victory over the Raptors.

    Griffin found success from beyond the arc, where he scored nine of his 13 points. This marks his first night scoring in double figures since Dec. 30, when he put up 13 points against the Lakers. Griffin saw an uptick in minutes Saturday night with Bogdan Bogdanovic (quad) sidelined, but he'll likely go back to logging around 15 minutes per night once Bogdanovic returns to health.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Returns to bench Monday

    Griffin will come off the bench during Monday's contest against the Warriors, Lauren L. Williams of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Griffin started Atlanta's previous two contests but will return to his usual reserve role with De'Andre Hunter (ankle) back in the mix. The rookie out of Duke is averaging 10.5 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.0 steals over the first 32 appearances of his career.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Scores 13 points in start

    Griffin totaled 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt), one rebound and two assists across 24 minutes during Friday's 130-121 loss to the Lakers.

    Griffin remained in the starting lineup Friday but fell short of the mark when it comes to fantasy value. Despite cobbling together an impressive rookie season, Griffin has slowed of late, barely putting up top-250 value over the latest stretch with single-digit scoring in three of his past four outings. He can be utilized as a three-point streamer, but anything beyond that is a little risky.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Starting role yields very little

    Griffin chipped in four points (2-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and two steals over 24 minutes during Wednesday's 108-107 loss to the Nets.

    Griffin moved into the starting lineup Wednesday, one of three fill-in starters for the Hawks. Despite the promotion, he was unable to deliver anything outside of a pair of steals. While he has shown flashes this season, he is simply too inconsistent to warrant allocating a permanent 12-team roster spot. He is fine to stream for now, but as soon as the Hawks start getting their guys back, he can be safely sent back to the waiver wire.
