Dedmon contributed seven points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block across 22 minutes during the Kings' 128-115 preseason win over the Jazz on Monday.
Dedmon did a bit of everything in the win as he preps to open the season as the starting center. The big man brings a diverse skill set that includes some floor-spacing ability (38.2 percent shooting from three-point range last season), making him an intriguing later-round pick in drafts.
Dedmon (illness) is starting Thursday's preseason game against the Suns.
Dedmon has been battling an illness, but he evidently feels well enough to run the floor in this one. He'll start alongside De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, Harrison Barnes and Dewayne Dedmon.
Dedmon did not practice Wednesday due to an illness, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
There's apparently a bug going around the team following its trip to India, though the illness isn't expected to keep Dedmon from suiting up in Thursday's preseason game against the Suns.
Dedmon is the Kings' expected starter at center this season, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
While the Kings have plenty of depth at the position, Dedmon is the player being paid like a starter after he inked a three-year, $40 million contract this summer. Per Ham, the expectation is that Dedmon will play close to the 25 minutes per game he averaged in Atlanta last season, while Harry Giles and Richaun Holmes will battle for scraps off the bench. Ham notes that one of the two will likely begin the season out of the rotation, but all three players figure to work their way into the mix over the course of 82 games. New coach Luke Walton described the position as a "healthy competition," while Giles said he, Dedmon and Holmes each bring a different skill set. "I think we all just bring different things to the table," Giles said. "I'm ready to compete. That's what it's all about. You've got to bring different guys in, it's the NBA, so it can't be easy. At the same time, you have to keep it a challenge and you have to have depth too."
Dedmon has agreed to a three-year, $41 million contract with the Kings, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Dedmon has spent the past two seasons with the Hawks. While in Atlanta, he developed his three-point shot, drilling 1.3 triples per game last season at a 38.2 percent clip. He's also shown upside as a quality rebounder and defender, racking up 7.5 rebounds and a combined 2.2 steals and blocks across 25.1 minutes in 2018-19. Dedmon's diverse skill set makes sense next to Marvin Bagley, who has shown promise as an athletic big capable of playing both power forward and center.
Dedmon is expected to sign a three-year, $40 million deal with the Kings once free agency officially begins, Sam Amick of The Athletic reports.
Dedmon will provide rebounding and spacing off the bench for the Kings, as he averaged 1.3 triples per game last season. The Kings will be the journeyman's sixth team since entering the league in 2013.
Dedmon (ankle) will miss the remainder of the season due to ongoing soreness in his left ankle, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The good news is that Dedmon will avoid surgery, but he'll still undergo a procedure to address the issue that's plagued him on-and-off this season. In Dedmon's absence, expect Alex Len to pick up increased minutes at center down the stretch.
Dedmon (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game against Milwaukee.
Dedmon has been ruled out of Sunday's game due to left ankle soreness. In his place, look for Alex Len to see an increased workload.
Dedmon totaled 18 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one steal across 23 minutes in the Hawks' win over the Pelicans on Tuesday.
Dedmon just missed a double-double in Tuesday's win, scoring 18 points and grabbing nine boards. Over his last five games, Dedmon is averaging a healthy 14.2 points and 9.4 rebounds in 25.4 minutes. He's on a roll right now, and the production is certainly sustainable with the Hawks playing well and winning their last three games.
Dedmon generated 18 points (6-8 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 28 minutes Thursday in the Hawks' 117-114 win over the Jazz.
It was a strong outing across the board for Dedmon, who shot well from the field, three-point range and the charity stripe and put up good numbers on the defensive end. The center's playing time remains somewhat variable from game to game, but aside from a poor field-goal percentage, he's generally been useful on the whole since returning from a two-game absence due to a knee injury earlier this month. In his first six games back from injury, Dedmon is nearly averaging a double-double (9.2 points, 9.2 rebounds) while chipping in 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.5 triples and 1.0 block.
Dedmon finished with 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt), 14 rebounds, two assists and two steals over 25 minutes in the Hawks' loss to the Magic on Sunday.
Dedmon continues to play on a minutes restriction while dealing with knee problems, but he didn't seem to be affected by the injury in Sunday's loss. He produced his second-highest rebounding total of the season after grabbing 13 boards on Saturday night at Boston. Dedmon isn't a consistent scorer or rebounder, but he's been prone to stretches of high-level production, so fantasy owners should continue to roll with him while he's hot.
Dedmon had eight points (3-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt), six rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 20 minutes during Sunday's 128-116 win over the Pelicans.
Dedmon was expected to have his minutes capped at 20 after missing the last two games with a knee injury, and that's precisely what happened. With Dedmon being among the oldest players on a young rebuilding team, it wouldn't be surprising if his minutes remain fairly limited for the remainder of the campaign.
Dedmon (knee) will be available for roughly 20 minutes Sunday against the Pelicans, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports.
Dedmon is still nursing a bruised knee, but he'll return to action after missing the Hawks' last two contests. Alex Len will remain the starter at center, while Dedmon will be available for limited action off the bench.
Dedmon (knee) is ruled as probable for Sunday's matchup against New Orleans, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Dedmon has missed the last two contests for the Hawks due to a lingering right knee bruise but being officially tabbed as probable for Sunday's contest, Dedmon may be in line for a likely return. If Dedmon can't give it a go and is ultimately ruled out for a third straight game however, teammate Alex Len will presumably start once again.
Dedmon (knee) is out Saturday against the Nets, BradRowland of Locked on Hawks reports.
As expected, a right knee bruise will prevent Dedmon from playing Saturday. As a result, Alex Len will presumably see more run. The newly-signed Tyler Zeller could also see his first minutes as a member of the Hawks.
Dedmon (knee) has been downgraded to doubtful for Saturday's game against the Nets, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Dedmon appears to be on track to miss his second straight game with a right knee contusion, and with Omari Spellman and Alex Poythress both facing long absences with ankle injuries, the Hawks are going to be very light on frontcourt depth Saturday night. With that, Alex Len will likely continue starting at center while Tyler Zeller, who just joined the team on a 10-day contract, could be in line for quality minutes immediately.
Dedmon (knee) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Nets, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Dedmon was sidelined for Wednesday's game against the Spurs due to a right knee contusion, and it appears his status for Saturday's game won't be known until closer to tip-off. Should Dedmon be ruled out for a second straight game, Alex Len would again be in line to start at center with newly-signed Tyler Zeller potentially seeing minutes off the bench as well.
Dedmon (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Dedmon was tagged as doubtful prior to Wednesday's game, so his absence comes as no surprise. As a result, Alex Len, who started at center in each of the last two games, will now likely remain in the starting lineup despite the return of John Collins (illness). It will also potentially result in Alex Poythress continuing to get extended frontcourt minutes off the bench.
Dedmon is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against Cleveland due to a right knee contusion, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dedmon likely picked up the injury in Atlanta's last matchup Monday against Miami, and it looks like he'll be shelved for Wednesday's clash, which would leave the Hawks rather thin in the frontcourt. John Collins (illness) is questionable and Omari Spellman (ankle) is out, so Vince Carter, Justin Anderson and Alex Len would figure to be in store for extended playing time, assuming Dedmon is indeed ruled out.
Dedmon recorded 14 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six rebounds, two assists and three steals in 27 minutes Monday against Miami.
Dedmon maintained his recent scoring success, although he was unable to secure his third straight double-double in a 114-113 loss on the road. He's averaging 11.4 points along with 9.4 boards and 2.4 assists over his previous five contests and should continue to serve as a reliable source of both points and rebounds as part of a young Atlanta squad.
