Hawks' Alex Poythress: Unavailable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress (ankle) won't play in Wednesday's season finale against the Pacers, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

Poythress hasn't taken the court since Mar. 6, so it's no surprise that he's been ruled out for Atlanta's final regular-season matchup. He figures to be healthy well in advance of next year.

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress (ankle) is out Sunday against the Bucks.

This news doesn't come as much of a surprise. Poythress' final chance to play this season is Wednesday against Indiana.

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Still out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress (ankle) is out Friday against the Magic, Brad Rowland of Locked on Hawks reports.

Poythress hasn't played since March 6, but the Hawks have considered him day-to-day. There's a strong chance he's played his final game of the year.

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Ruled out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress (ankle) won't play in Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

Poythress will miss his 13th-straight game due to a right ankle sprain. With only four games remaining for the Hawks, it seems unlikely that the third-year forward will return before the seasons end.

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Remains out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress (ankle) will remain inactive during the matchup against the Spurs on Tuesday.

Poythress hasn't played since March 6 and has only seen action in 21 games this season. His season is likely over, as his absences haven't impacted the rotation at all for the Hawks recently.

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Remains out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game against the Bucks.

Poythress hasn't played in almost a month and may not see the floor again this season. The team has yet to give a definite timetable for the forwards return from his ankle injury. His status hasn't impacted the team's minutes distribution much and shouldn't be much of a factor down the stretch.

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Faced with extended absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress (ankle) may miss extended time, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

According to coach Lloyd Pierce, Poythress' ankle injury "looks really bad" and that he'll "be out for a while". This is a bad sign for the Hawks, who are already without Dewayne Dedmon (knee), Miles Plumlee (knee) and Omari Spellman (ankle), and just recalled Poythress form the G-League earlier this week to provide frontcourt depth. A definite timeline has yet to be given, but based on the initial assessment, Poythress could be in-line to miss several weeks.

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Suffers ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress suffered a right ankle sprain and won't return to Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

Poythress exited Wednesday's game midway through the fourth quarter with a right ankle sprain. He'd recently returned to the Hawks after an extended stretch in the G-League following another sprain albeit in his left ankle that kept him out for several games earlier this season. It's unclear how severe the injury is, but a statement from the team should come out ahead of Saturday's game against Brooklyn clarifying Poythress' availability.

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Moves back to parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hawks recalled Poythress on Thursday from the G League's Erie BayHawks.

The two-way player could dress for Atlanta's final game before the All-Star break Thursday versus the Knicks, but it's unlikely coach Lloyd Pierce will call upon him for significant run. Poythress is averaging 4.9 points and 3.3 rebounds in 13.5 minutes per game over his 18 appearances at the NBA level this season.

Alex Poythress: Amasses whopping 40 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress amassed 40 points (18-28 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-10 FT), 12 rebounds, three blocked shots and two assists in the 109-103 loss to Lakeland on Friday.

It's a bit surprising to see Poythress struggle from the free throw line, but the BayHawks won't complain when he's scoring almost one half of the team's total points. So long as Poythress continues to stay in the G League, he's a threat to post double-double figures every single game, and scoring explosions such as Friday shouldn't just be a surprise, they might as well be a standard.

February 3, 2019 12:40 PM
Hawks' Alex Poythress: Recalled Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress was recalled from the G League on Sunday.

Poythress hasn't played in a Hawks' game since Dec. 31 and will likely continue to see a limited role, if any, moving forward. The Kentucky product is currently averaging 23.3 points and 9.3 rebounds over 10 games played in the G League this year.

Alex Poythress: Fouls out in loss to Herd
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress finished the Bayhawks' 119-115 loss to the Herd on Sunday with 21 points (14-24 FG, 1-2 FT, 0-3 3Pt), 10 rebounds, three steals and two assists.

Poythress' 21 points went a long way towards the Bayhawks staying competitive with the Herd, trailing only Terrence Jones in points for the home side. Poythress may have been able to pile on more scoring if not for a disappointing shooting display, only converting 10 shots from the field while shooting as much as Jones and ending with a plus/minus of -14. Poythress' disappointing outing especially hurt the Bayhawks down the stretch when he picked up his fifth foul with six minutes left in the game, forcing the Bayhawks to give bench players time in the clutch.

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Returns to Erie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress was transferred to the BayHawks on Tuesday, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

Poythress was brought up by the Hawks ahead of Sunday's contest, but he failed to see the court. He'll head back to the BayHawks along with Jaylen Adams.

January 20, 2019 05:28 PM
Hawks' Alex Poythress: Brought up from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress was transferred from the Erie BayHawks to Atlanta on Sunday.

Poythress was demoted to Erie on Wednesday, but he'll rejoin the Hawks after a brief stint with the G-League team. He hasn't appeared in a game for Atlanta since Dec. 31, when he failed to score in just four minutes of action.

January 16, 2019 12:00 PM
Alex Poythress: Sent to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress was transferred to the G League's Erie BayHawks on Wednesday, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

Poythress will suit up in the BayHawks' matchup Wednesday with the Wisconsin Herd. As one of the Hawks' two-way players, Poythress is expected to see the bulk of his opportunities in the G League unless Atlanta adds him to their 15-man roster.

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Returns from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hawks recalled Poythress from the G League's Erie BayHawks on Monday.

Point guard Jaylen Adams was also summoned from Erie, presumably so he and Poythress can practice with the parent team Monday. It's unclear if either player will stick around for Tuesday's game against the Thunder, though neither would be in store for major roles if available. In his 18 appearances with Atlanta this season, Poythress is averaging 4.9 points and 3.3 boards in 13.5 minutes per game.

January 1, 2019 04:40 PM
Hawks' Alex Poythress: Sent back to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress was reassigned to the G League on Tuesday.

Poythress joined the Hawks for Monday's game against the Pacers, but he saw just four minutes off the bench and will return to the Erie BayHawks for a chance at extended run. The Kentucky product missed extended time in November and December with a knee injury.

December 31, 2018 10:56 AM
Hawks' Alex Poythress: Returns from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hawks recalled Poythress from the G League's Erie BayHawks on Monday.

As anticipated, Poythress' stay in the G League lasted just one day, with the forward rejoining the parent club in advance of Monday's tilt with the Pacers. With Atlanta likely to be without the services of forwards Taurean Prince (ankle) and Kent Bazemore (ankle) and center Dewayne Dedmon (knee), there should be an opening for Poythress to fill a spot on the second unit.

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Assigned to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress has been assigned to the G League's Erie BayHawks, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

Poythress has played in the Hawks' last four games since missing about a month of action with a knee injury. His move to the G League is likely a move to allow him to see more playing time and to continue to get back into playing shape.

December 29, 2018 05:40 PM
Hawks' Alex Poythress: Cleared to play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poythress (knee) is available Saturday against the Cavaliers, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

Poythress was previously questionable, but is feeling good enough to take the floor. During his most recent appearance, he posted 12 points, five rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 23 minutes.
