Stone was waived Monday by the Hawks, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Stone was acquired by the Hawks in a three-way trade with the Clippers and Nuggets after appearing in just seven games for Los Angeles over the course of his rookie season. He spent a good amount of time in the G League as well, playing in 13 games and averaging 16.2 points and 7.0 rebounds per game. He'll likely return to the G League next season tin an effort to make it back into the NBA.
In addition to Stone, the Hawks will pick up Jamal Crawford and a first-round pick, while the Clippers receive Danilo Gallinari and the Nuggets get a 2019 second-round pick. Stone likely isn't going to step into a huge role with the move, but the fact that the Hawks are going on a youth movement could mean they make an extra effort to get Stone reps. He'll likely start the year out behind both John Collins and Miles Plumlee in the frontcourt, which should limit his overall fantasy impact.
Stone might actually be ending up in a better situation -- at least in regard to him seeing more playing time -- since the Hawks have made it clear they're diving into a rebuilding period where they'll be able to devote more minutes to young talent. That said, the 20-year-old only has 24 total minutes of NBA action under his belt, so there's no guarantee he'll be able to produce when given the minutes.
Stone (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Jazz.
Stone has been out since mid-February with a bone bruise in his left knee and he's highly unlikely to return to the lineup at any point during the playoffs. That said, he hasn't officially been ruled out for the rest of the postseason, so look for Stone's status to continue to be updated on a game-to-game basis. Even if cleared, he'd just be an emergency depth option off the bench.
Stone (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's Game 4 against the Jazz.
Stone continues to work back from a bone bruise in his left knee and with the Clippers unlikely to use Stone as a part of their regular rotation during the playoffs, there's no real reason to bring the rookie big man back into the fold. He'll remain sidelined yet again Sunday and is unlikely to be available at any point during the first round of the playoffs. That said, look for his status to be updated again ahead of Tuesday's Game 5.
