Humphries will start Sunday's game against Milwaukee, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports.
Humphries just signed with the Hawks a little more than a week ago, but he'll log his first start Sunday as the nominal power forward with John Collins resting. Humphries played 15 minutes Friday against Orlando, finishing with three points and one board.
Humphries signed with the Hawks on Monday for the remainder of the season.
The former Kentucky Wildcat has spent time overseas and in the G League since going undrafted in 2017, and he'll now join the Hawks for the final 10 days of the regular season. Humphries previously made appearances in 46 games for the Erie BayHawks, averaging 11.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.1 blocks and 1.1 assists per game. He's unlikely to be a major factor down the stretch, though the Hawks are in need of depth at center with both Miles Plumlee (knee) and Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) done for the season.
Humphries (knee) played 12 minutes on Wednesday, finishing the contest with six points (3-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist.
Humphries found his way into the starting rotation despite missing time earlier this week with a knee injury, but still wound up playing just 12 minutes. So long as Terrence Jones continues to put up strong numbers (20 points, 14 rebounds on Wednesday), Humphries' opportunities figure to be limited.
Humphries did not play in the Bayhawks' 119-115 loss to the Herd on Sunday due to a knee injury.
The timing on Humphries' injury couldn't be worse for the Australian rookie, who had been getting less time on the court in recent weeks. Losing time due to injury, and with the meteoric ascension of teammate and fellow center Terrence Jones, Humphries will have a significantly reduced role with the Bayhawks if he can recover soon.
Humphries finished the 124-107 win Wednesday over the Legends with 34 points (15-21 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 15 rebounds, five blocks and two assists.
Humphries put together a massive double-double, easily posting a career-high during Round One of the G League Showcase. Humphries' fantastic performance couldn't have come at a better time in terms of attracting attention from the NBA level, but it remains to be seen if the 20-year-old Aussie will continue to have this sort of impact.
