Fernando didn't play in Monday's loss to New York.
This was the third time over the past five games in which Fernando didn't take the floor. When the center sees the court however, he's averaging 1.9 points and 3.6 rebounds in 9.2 minutes.
Fernando (hip) will be available for Monday's game against the 76ers, Sarah Spencer of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
After missing three games with a hip injury, Fernando will be an option for coach Lloyd Pierce off the bench. Fernando is not a fantasy consideration as long as Clint Capela is healthy.
Fernando (hip) is probable for Monday's game against Philadelphia, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Fernando has had an inconsistent role for the Hawks this season, but he was able to play through his left hip injury Saturday. He's likely to play once again Monday, but he shouldn't have a significant fantasy impact.
Fernando (hip) is cleared to play Saturday against the Hornets, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Fernando's role has been inconsistent to start the campaign. There's a chance he sees upward of 15 minutes Saturday, but it's unlikely he'll have fantasy relevance.
Fernando is probable for Saturday's game against the Hornets due to a left hip injury, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
Fernando's injury is apparently minor, and it's still likely he'll suit up. He hasn't seen the court the past two games due to DNP-CD, so even if he's available, we shouldn't expect him to make an impact.
Fernando has totaled 10 points and 22 rebounds across the Hawks' first three games this year.
Fernando has been able to contribute early on due to Clint Capela missing the first two games and Onyeka Okongwu still out with a toe injury. The Maryland product has been a factor on the glass so far, as the center grabbed 10 boards against Memphis last Saturday. Fernando is averaging 15.3 minutes, 3.3 points and 7.3 rebounds to begin the season.
Fernando is averaging 5.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and one assist in 11 games since the All-Star break.
Fernando has come off the bench in nine of his last 11 contests, logging fewer than 10 minutes in three of those matchups. Assuming Clint Capela (heel) is healthy when play resumes, Fernando will have to battle for playing time with both Capela and Dewayne Dedmon at center, making his workload unpredictable.
Fernando will come off the bench Friday against the Wizards.
With Dewayne Dedmon (elbow) back in the starting five, Fernando will occupy a reserve role. Coming off the bench this season, Fernando has averaged 4.4 points and 3.1 rebounds in 11.6 minutes.
Fernando (shin) is available for Friday's game versus the Wizards, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Fernando was considered probable with left shin soreness, so he'll be suiting up as expected. Dewayne Dedmon (elbow) is also available and figures to rejoin the starting lineup, which should push Fernando back to the bench.
Fernando is probable for Friday's game against the Wizards due to left shin soreness, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
With Dewayne Dedmon (elbow) also probable, Fernando could see a reduced workload even if he is cleared to play. More information on both players' statuses could arrive following Friday's morning shootaround.
Fernando started at center and was limited to two points (1-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six rebounds and three assists across 23 minutes Monday in the Hawks' 127-88 loss to the Grizzlies.
Atlanta was without five players due to injury Monday, allowing Fernando to crack the starting five for the 13th time this season. The appointment to the top unit came with an uptick in playing time, but Fernando's poor shooting prevented him from taking advantage of the opportunity. According to Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site, general manager Travis Schlenk said that he expects Dewayne Dedmon (elbow) to be ready to play int the team's next game Friday in Washington, so expect Fernando to move back to the bench for that contest and notice a downturn in minutes.
Fernando will come off the bench for Friday's game against the Nets, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Cam Reddish will get the start for "matchup-driven" reasons according to coach Lloyd Pierce. Still, Fernando should still see action given that Dewayne Dedmon (elbow) is sidelined.
Fernando scored 10 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), grabbed nine rebounds, dished out one assist and recorded one steal in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 130-120 loss to the Magic.
Fernando started for the first time since Jan. 26 and looked productive, but, more importantly, he looked healthy. Considering the rookie has missed six of Atlanta's last 13 games, he needs to avoid injuries to remain a reliable fantasy asset. He has already proven he can produce enough when given the chance.
Fernando will start Wednesday's game against the Magic, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Clint Capela (heel) and Dewayne Dedmon (elbow) are both unavailable, so Fernando will enter the starting lineup for the 12th time this season. The 21-year-old is averaging 4.6 points and 4.8 rebounds over 15.5 minutes in his previous appearances.
Fernando recorded 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and four rebounds in 19 minutes in Monday's 129-112 loss to the Sixers.
With starting center Dewayne Dedmon struggling with foul trouble, Fernando received more minutes than the veteran and produced his best scoring effort in nearly a month. Dedmon has now failed to supply double-digit points in four straight games and Fernando may have earned himself a few extra minutes going forward with Clint Capela (heel) still sidelined. His next chance to make an impact is this Wednesday night when the Hawks host the Magic.
Fernando has tallied 26 total minutes in his last three outings coming off the bench for the Hawks.
Fernando logged three straight starts in late January, but he has struggled to remain on the court since suffering a calf injury Jan. 26. Since then, the rookie big man has missed five of Atlanta's last eight contests and hasn't topped the 10-minute mark in any of the three contests he has been able to step on the hardwood. He should be left on waivers across most formats due to his lack of playing time and overall involvement in the offensive scheme following the return of John Collins and the addition of Clint Capela.
Fernando (calf) is available but will have a 15-minute restriction Sunday against the Knicks, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Even when working as a starter the 21-year-old averaged 15.6 minutes, so the restriction is unlikely to significantly impact his playing time. Fernando will likely split time at center with Damian Jones and the newly-acquired Dewayne Dedmon.
Fernando (calf) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Knicks, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Fernando has played a total of just seven minutes over the last five games as he deals with a calf strain. With Clint Capela (heel) out, Fernando should be in line for a fairly large role if he is indeed able to play.
Fernando (calf) won't play Friday against the Celtics.
As expected, Fernando remains sidelined with a strained left calf. His next chance to play arrives Sunday against the Knicks.
Fernando (calf) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Celtics, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Fernando aggravated his injured calf during Wednesday's win over the Timberwolves and is on track to miss at least one game as a result. Even when healthy, Fernando's playing time will likely take a dip following the acquisitions of Clint Capela (heel) and Dewayne Dedmon.
