Bembry is starting at shooting guard in Wednesday's preseason game against the Magic, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
With Kevin Huerter still nursing a knee injury, Bembry will stick in the starting lineup for a second straight game. The 25-year-old was sharp in Monday's exhibition against the Pelicans, finishing with 16 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three assists, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 21 minutes.
Bembry registered 14 points (6-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and three steals over 29 minutes Friday against Orlando.
Bembry led Atlanta's reserves with 14 points on the night, but the Magic would come away with a 30-plus point victory in one of the final games of the regular season. The 24-year-old Saint Joseph's product is averaging 8.2 points over 79 contests this season but has seen an uptick in playing time and production of late, likely due to the fact that the Hawks have shut a number of their top performers down for the regular season.
Bembry put up 16 points (5-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in 22 minutes Sunday in the Hawks' 136-135 overtime win over the Bucks.
Bembry contributed a full stat line here, but he had submitted more meager averages of 7.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.5 steals per game over his previous 10 outings. Even though the Hawks have already shut down a few players for the season and could be missing Taurean Prince (foot) for additional contests, Bembry's game-to-game floor might be too low to justify using him in weekly lineups.
Bembry managed 18 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-7 FT), six rebounds, four steals and two assists across 20 minutes in the Hawks' win over the Pelicans on Tuesday.
Bembry tied his second-highest scoring mark of the season with 18 points in 20 minutes off the bench on Tuesday. He also tied a season-high mark in steals with four. He's not a huge part of the offense but does enough elsewhere to make a good option in deeper leagues and a flyer in standard formats.
Bembry collected 16 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 14 rebounds, three blocks and two assists across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 131-123 win over the Timberwolves.
Bembry recorded his second double-double on the season Wednesday night in what was an important game to the former first-round pick. After a recent stint in the starting rotation, Bembry was removed and had seen little time and productivity since, until he logged 34 minutes (11 more minutes than any game he has played since losing the starting role) and posted a double-double.
Bembry (quad) is no longer listed on the Hawks' injury report ahead of Monday's game against Houston.
Bembry came into the day carrying a probable designation, but after shootaround he's been given the green light to play. With Taurean Prince (personal) out of action, and Kevin Huerter limited by an ankle injury, Bembry could see a slight bump in minutes Monday.
Bembry is probable for Monday's game against Houston due to a left quad contusion, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Bembry evidently picked up the injury sometime over the last couple games, but he's expected to play through the issue. Since moving to the bench at the beginning of February, he's averaging just 4.4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in nine contests.
Bembry will come off the bench Saturday against the Suns, FOX Sports Hawks reports.
Bembry has started the past 13 games, but coach Lloyd Pierce will opt to send him to the bench in favor of Taurean Prince. As a reserve this season, Bembry is averaging 8.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.3 steals across 23.4 minutes.
Bembry finished with 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 135-113 loss to the Kings.
Bembry saw the least amount of playing time among the starting five, with reserve forwards Taurean Prince and Omari Spellman both earning more minutes. The blowout nature of the game and return of Kent Bazemore (ankle), who had missed the last 14 games, may have played a part in Bembry's reduced role. Barring a trade involving Bazemore or Prince, Bembry may find it difficult to continue contributing at the level we've seen from him lately.
Bembry compiled just two points (1-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt), adding three rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 26 minutes during Saturday's 120-111 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Bembery struggled to get anything going Saturday, scoring just two points in 26 minutes. That makes two straight poor performances for Bembry who had been playing well prior to this stretch. Owners should sit tight for at least one more game in the hope he can get things going again against the Clippers on Monday.
Bembry notched 11 points (5-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven assists, four steals, two rebounds and two blocks across 34 minutes Monday in the Hawks' 122-103 loss to the Magic.
Taurean Prince reclaimed a starting gig in his fourth game back from an ankle injury, but Bembry was still able to maintain his spot on the top unit thanks to Kevin Huerter's (neck) absence. Huerter's injury doesn't sound like a long-term issue, so it's possible that Bembry could surrender his spot to Prince for good beginning with Wednesday's game in Chicago. Even though Prince's improved health is a negative development for Bembry, the Saint Joseph's product has at the very least made a case to maintain a prominent role off the bench. Over 10 outings in January, Bembry is averaging 12.7 points (on 50.5 percent shooting from the field), 4.7 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.8 triples in 31.4 minutes per contest.
Bembry generated 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt), eight rebounds, six assists and two steals in 33 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Thunder.
Bembry's now scored in double-figures in seven of his past eight games, averaging 13.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.5 steals per game over that span, and securing a recurring spot in Atlanta's starting five. Bembry's having his best season in his third year as a pro, and is worth a look in standard leagues so long as he holds down a starting role. That said, once Kent Bazemore (ankle) and Taurean Prince (illness) are back to full-speed, Bembry could be in line for a decrease in minutes.
Bembry tallied 18 points (7-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and one steal across 32 minutes Sunday in the Hawks' 133-114 loss to the Bucks.
Though Taurean Prince (ankle) was cleared to play after missing the previous 18 contests, he was limited to a 12-minute role off the bench in his return. That allowed Bembry to maintain his spot in the starting five, with the third-year swingman delivering strong numbers in that capacity aside from a team-high six turnovers. Prince will likely be restricted for a few more games, but with his minutes gradually expected to pick back up, Bembry's fantasy value will probably start trending downward as a result.
Coach Lloyd Pierce indicated Sunday that Bembry is expected to remain a starting wing for the Hawks during their three-game road trip that begins Tuesday in Toronto, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
Pierce commented on the matter prior to Sunday's 106-82 win over the Heat, during which Bembry starred with 17 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes. With Taurean Prince (ankle) and Kent Bazemore (ankle) both not expected back until at least the middle of January and Pierce seemingly content to keep Daniel Hamilton on the bench, Bembry could make for a nice short-term pickup during the Hawks' four-game week. Over his last five outings, Bembry is averaging 12.4 points, 4.2 boards, 1.4 steals, 1.2 assists and 0.8 blocks in 26.6 minutes while shooting 48.1 percent from the floor.
Bembry will draw the start Sunday against the Heat, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Bembry's move to the starting five will bump Daniel Hamilton to the bench. Bembry's averaging 8.3 points and 4.3 rebounds over 23.4 minutes per game, and could see a larger role in the starting five.
Bembry scored a team-high 19 points (7-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding two rebounds and a steal in 23 minutes off the bench during Friday's 144-112 loss to the Bucks.
This one got away from the Hawks almost immediately -- they were outscored 43-14 in the first quarter -- opening the door for Bembry to see more usage than usual. The third-year wing is putting together a modest career-best campaign as Atlanta's sixth man, and if his role continues to grow he could start showing up on fantasy radars in the second half.
Bembry tallied 11 points, seven rebounds, and one steal in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 114-98 loss to the Wizards.
Bembry has now played at least 26 minutes in five consecutive games with mixed production from game to game. Until Taurean Prince (ankle) returns to the lineup, Bembry is going to be a major part of the rotation and while his skill set is somewhat limited, he can provide nice defensive numbers and could be streamed in across most formats if you are in need of some steals and rebounds.
Bembry scored 18 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT) while adding five assists, three rebounds, three blocks and a steal in 19 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 106-98 win over the Nuggets.
He led the Hawks' bench in scoring and the entire team in blocks on the night. The third-year wing is typically a source of steals and not blocks -- he had 11 of the former and only one of the latter in the last five games prior to Saturday -- but either way Bembry's been providing solid defensive stats despite his limited minutes on the second unit, averaging 1.5 steals and 0.8 blocks in only 22.2 minutes over the last 11 contests.
Bembry posted 11 points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal across 20 minutes in Monday's 128-111 loss to the Warriors.
Bembry had shown poor form over the previous three games with a 40.9 percent shooting mark from the field while turning the ball over a total of eight times, but he bounced back nicely in the blowout loss. Perhaps more significantly, starting small forward Taurean Prince exited the game with an ankle injury, with coach Lloyd Pierce indicating afterward that he expected Prince to miss time. Assuming that's the case, both Bembry and Kent Bazemore could be in store for more playing time on the wing beginning with Wednesday's game against the Wizards.
Bembry registered 16 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt), six rebounds, six assists and one block across 27 minutes Sunday in the Hawks' 124-123 win over the Hornets.
The 2016 first-round pick has finally found a home in the Atlanta rotation in his third NBA season and beginning to display the across-the-board production he provided during his college career at St. Joseph's. Bembry is averaging 15.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.5 blocks, 1.5 three-pointers and 1.0 steal across 26.5 minutes per game over the last two contests and could continue to cut into the playing time of Kent Bazemore, who no longer looks like a fit for the rebuilding Hawks. The 24-year-old is worth a speculative look in deeper formats.
