Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Sees 14 minutes off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu had nine points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds and a block in Sunday's win over the Nuggets.

Coming off of a pair of DNP-CDs, Okongwu saw 14 minutes of action in a game Atlanta led comfortably for most of the second half. The rookie out of USC hasn't been a fantasy consideration this season, but he remains an appealing long-term prospect in dynasty formats.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Non-factor Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu didn't score but grabbed one rebound during Monday's loss to New York.

The rookie played a season-worst three minutes of action after not appearing in Saturday's loss to Indiana. Okongwu is posting 3.4 points and 3.0 rebounds through eight games played.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Available with restrictions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (Achilles) is available and will have a 16-minute restriction Saturday against the Raptors, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

The 20-year-old missed the last three games with a sore left Achilles, but he'll return to the court Saturday. Okongwu is averaging 12.0 minutes in his five appearances this season, so the restrictions are unlikely to affect his workload as Atlanta's reserve center.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (Achilles) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Raptors, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

The rookie has missed the last three games due to Achilles soreness, but he could return Saturday. If he plays, he should see backup center minutes behind Clint Capela.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Unavailable Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (Achilles) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Utah.

Okongwu will miss a third straight game due to left Achilles soreness. In his absence, Bruno Fernando should serve as the primary backup to Clint Capela.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Questionable Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (Achilles) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Jazz, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

Okongwu has missed two games in a row with left Achilles soreness, but he has a chance to return Thursday. If he's cleared to play, he could see about 10-to-15 minutes.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (Achilles) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Mavs, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.

A sore Achilles will cost the rookie a second straight game, so expect Bruno Fernando to serve as the Hawks' backup center behind Clint Capela. Injuries have limited Okongwu to just five appearances thus far.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Questionable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (Achilles) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

The 20-year-old sat out Monday's matchup with the Lakers due to a sore Achilles, and his availability for Wednesday's contest remains in question. Okongwu is unlikely to see much playing time even if available versus Dallas.

February 1, 2021 05:52 PM
Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Won't play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (Achilles) is unavailable Monday against the Lakers, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The 20-year-old was downgraded from probable to questionable earlier in the day, and he's now been officially ruled out. John Collins could see more run at center when Clint Capela is on the bench with Okongwu sidelined.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Deemed questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hawks downgraded Okongwu (Achilles) from probable to questionable for Monday's game against the Lakers, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

Atlanta apparently still maintains some concern about Okongwu's sore left Achilles coming out of morning shootaround, so he looks like he could be headed for a game-time decision ahead of the 7:30 p.m. ET tipoff. If Okongwu ends up missing Monday's contest, John Collins could pick up a few extra minutes as a backup center when Clint Capela is off the floor.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Probable Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (Achilles) is probable for Monday's game against the Lakers.

Okongwu will carry a probable designation once again as he continues to deal with left Achilles soreness, but he was able to suit up Friday against the Wizards. Even if he's available, Okongwu is unlikely to see much playing time for Atlanta.

January 29, 2021 01:16 PM
Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Clear of injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (Achilles) isn't listed on the injury report for Friday's game against the Wizards, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

The 20-year-old was originally considered probable for Friday's contest but has since been removed from the injury report. Okongwu is unlikely to see much playing time with Clint Capela (hand) also expected to play at Washington.

January 28, 2021 05:36 PM
Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Probable with Achilles soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu is probable for Friday's game against the Wizards due to left Achilles soreness, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

Okongwu's role this season has been minimal. Even if he's available Friday, there's not a guarantee he takes the floor.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Starting vs. Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu will start Sunday's game against Milwaukee, Sarah Spencer of the Journal-Constitution reports.

With Clint Capela (hand) ruled out, Okongwu will make his first start in just his fourth career NBA game. The USC product saw only four minutes of action off the bench in Friday's win over the Timberwolves. Prior to that, he played 14 minutes Wednesday against Detroit, posting two points, six boards and three blocks.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Quality line in abbreviated minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (toe) played 14 minutes off the bench Friday in the Hawks' 116-92 loss to the Jazz, scoring four points (2-6 FG) and adding five rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Hawks head coach Lloyd Pierce said Okongwu would be capped at around 15 minutes Friday after the rookie was sidelined for the first 10 games of the season while tending to toe inflammation on his left foot, so the workload was about what could have been expected. The blowout nature of the contest may have had a hand in Okongwu getting the minutes, so Pierce's rotation will bear watching in the games to come to get a sense of how much the No. 6 overall pick might play on a more regular basis. Pierce had previously been using starting power forward John Collins to spell top center Clint Capela, so Okongwu may not necessarily inherit all the minutes at the position when Capela rests during games.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Faces minutes restriction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu will have a 15-minute restriction against the Jazz on Friday, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Okongwu will be making his season debut Friday after dealing with inflammation in his left foot over the first several weeks of the season. However, the No. 6 pick in the NBA Draft will be limited to approximately 15 minutes in his first taste of game action Friday.

January 14, 2021 07:24 PM
Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (toe) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Jazz, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

Okongwu looks like he'll be available to make his season debut after missing the first several weeks of the season due to inflammation in his left foot. The 20-year-old rookie, who was the No. 6 pick in the NBA Draft, will likely have his minutes ramped up slowly in a backup role.

January 12, 2021 07:28 PM
Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Likely to debut Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (toe) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Suns, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

The 20-year-old has been sidelined by inflammation in the sesamoid bone of his left foot to this point this season, but he's on track to make his professional debut Wednesday. Okongwu figures to be eased into a backup role at center given the extended absence.

January 12, 2021 11:32 AM
Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Could debut over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Travis Schlenk said Tuesday that Okongwu (toe) is on track to make his Atlanta debut later in the week, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports.

The No. 6 overall pick's NBA career has gotten off to a delayed start while he continues to recover from inflammation in the sesamoid bone of his left foot, an injury that he sustained while working out prior to the draft. Reading between the lines of Schlenk's comments, Okongwu can probably be ruled out for Wednesday's game in Phoenix, but the rookie big man could gain clearance to play Friday in Utah and/or Saturday in Portland. Okongwu will presumably fill a small role in Atlanta's rotation early on, likely working as the primary backup to starting center Clint Capela.

Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Still out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okongwu (toe) is out Saturday against the Hornets, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

Okongwu has yet to make his NBA debut. His next chance to do so arrives Monday against the 76ers.
