Top Onyeka Okongwu News

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Coming off bench

    Okongwu will come off the bench during Tuesday's Game 2 against the Heat, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

    John Collins will get the nod at center after the Hawks were dismantled in Game 1. Okongwu should still see plenty of action off the bench.

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Leading rebounder off bench

    Okongwu contributed two points (1-1 FG), nine rebounds and one steal in the 107-101 win over Cleveland on Friday.

    Okongwu set the tone on the glass after center Clint Capela exited the game after suffering a knee injury late in the second quarter. The second-year forward's minutes were nearly doubled from Wednesday's game against Charlotte.

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Double-double off bench

    Okongwu recorded 17 points (6-6 FG, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist and one block in 25 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 131-107 win over the Cavaliers.

    It's the first double-double of the season for the second-year center, although Okongwu has pulled down double-digit boards in two straight games. He continues to see consistent minutes behind Clint Capela in the Hawks' frontcourt, and while he hasn't yet added much consistency to his game, Okongwu's upside remains intriguing.

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Quiet in Friday's victory

    Okongwu finished with five rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 17 minutes during Friday's 121-110 win over the Warriors.

    Okongwu failed to score in his 17 minutes on the floor Friday, somewhat salvaging his night with three combined defensive stats. The team refuses to give him additional playing time despite the fact John Collins (finger/foot) is on the shelf, limiting his overall upside. Barring a shift in the Hawks' philosophy, Okongwu should be viewed as nothing more than a streaming consideration in moderately shallow formats.

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Struggles offensively Tuesday

    Okongwu ended with two points (1-2 FG, 0-2 FT), seven rebounds, one block and one steal across 19 minutes during Tuesday's 117-111 victory over New York.

    Okongwu was unable to get anything going on the offensive end, managing just two points in the victory. Despite the injury to John Collins, Okongwu has not been able to carve out a more sizeable role, logging more than 20 minutes only once in his past 10 games. He can be a solid enough source of blocks and rebounds, but for those in standard formats, he presents as nothing more than a streaming option on most nights.

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Strong off bench

    Okongwu produced 13 points (6-11 FG, 1-3 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one block across 26 minutes during Sunday's 131-128 victory over the Pacers.

    Okongwu co-led the bench in scoring, while leading the team in rebounds and outplaying the incumbent starter Clint Capela. Okongwu logged four more minutes than Capela, and additionally held a plus-minus advantage of 14 points over Capela. Okongwu is a menace on the offensive glass and a rising inside presence.

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Will be available Monday

    Hawks head coach Nate McMillan said Okongwu (concussion) will be available for Monday's matchup with the Pistons, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

    As expected, Okongwu will be available after clearing concussion protocols Sunday. However, it remains to be seen what type of role the big man will play. In his previous 10 contests before the injury, Okongwu averaged 7.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 18.7 minutes per game.

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Not on injury report

    Okongwu (concussion) isn't on the injury report for Monday's game against the Pistons, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

    Okongwu landed in the concussion protocol Wednesday and was forced to miss two consecutive games. However, it appears as though he should be back in action against Detroit. Across his last four appearances, he's averaged 10.5 points and 4.3 rebounds in 18.3 minutes per game.

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Out Friday

    Okongwu (concussion) is out Friday against the Wizards.

    The backup center remains in protocols, with his next chance of returning arriving Monday against the Pistons. On a positive note, the Hawks may be getting back John Collins (foot), who is questionable for Friday's game.

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: In concussion protocol

    Okongwu was placed in concussion protocol Wednesday and is out for Thursday's game against the Bulls, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Okongwu could certainly be looking at a multi-game absence, especially with the Hawks playing again Friday against the Wizards. He's been providing nice minutes at backup center, with averages of 7.6 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.2 blocks in 18.7 minutes last month. In his absence, Gorgui Dieng figures to see more run.

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Exits due to concussion evaluation

    Okongwu exited Tuesday's game against the Celtics due to concussion evaluation. He finished with five points (2-2 FG, 1-1 FT) in seven minutes.

    Concussions have varying recovery times, so fantasy managers have reason to be concerned that this could be a multi-game absence for the center. For whatever length of time Okongwu sits out, more minutes will presumably go to Gorgui Dieng, and Clint Capela may see more minutes himself.

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Plays 27 minutes off bench

    Okongwu closed Saturday's 127-100 win over the Raptors with 17 points (6-6 FG, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one steal across 27 minutes.

    Okongwu continues to come off the bench behind Clint Capela, but it's clear the Hawks have been making an effort to find him more minutes over the last several weeks. With Saturday's game out of hand by the end of the third quarter, Okongwu was able to see extended action, while Capela played only 18 minutes. Of the two, Capela remains the more valuable fantasy option in the short term, but Okongwu is beginning to look more and more like a high-potential asset in dynasty formats.
