Hawks' Kevin Huerter: Continues three-point binge
Huerter scored a team-high 19 points (7-10 FG, 5-8 3Pt) while adding three assists, three steals, two rebounds and a block in 31 minutes during Friday's 129-108 loss to the Celtics.
The 20-year-old has been on fire from beyond the arc, shooting an amazing 50.0 percent (18-for-36) on his three-point attempts over the last seven games. Huerter has worked his way into the starting five for the Hawks, and while Trae Young continues to get most of the attention among Atlanta's rookies, Huerter might well end up being the organization's second straight steal with the 19th overall pick, following in John Collins' footsteps....

Hawks' John Collins: Extends double-double streak
Collins scored 11 points (2-8 FG, 7-12 FT) while adding 14 rebounds, an assist and a block in 29 minutes during Friday's 129-108 loss to the Celtics.
It's the second-year big's sixth straight double-double and seventh in 13 games. Collins has made a big impact for the Hawks since recovering from ankle injury that cost him the first 15 games of the season, and he's establishing himself as an important part of their rebuilding efforts....

Lin (back) is questionable for Friday's game against the Celtics, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Line has been on the sidelined for the last two games, but he has returned to practice since initially suffering the lower back strain. He will likely end up being a game-time decision for Friday's outing in Boston.... See More ... See Less

Hawks' Trae Young: Double-doubles in losing effort
Young produced 24 points (11-20 FG, 2-6 3Pt), 10 assists, and two steals in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 114-107 loss to the Hawks.
Young came to play Wednesday, shooting over 50 percent for just the third time this season, ending with 24 points and 10 assists. This was also his first double-double in over two weeks and perhaps the matchup with fellow rookie Luka Doncic was enough to spark Young. As soon as he can find some consistency in his shot, Young will become far more attractive in standard formats. Until that time he is a nice source of assists and occasional points and threes....

Hawks' Kent Bazemore: Strong effort in Wednesday's loss
Bazemore tallied 22 points (8-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 114-107 loss to Dallas.
Bazemore has now played at least 32 minutes in three straight games, scoring 22 points in two of those games. Over those three games, he is averaging 17.0 points including almost three triples as well as 3.0 steals. The continued absence of Taurean Prince (ankle) benefits Bazemore and for the next couple of weeks, he is worth a look in standard formats.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Kevin Huerter: Career-high 19 points in loss
Huerter ended with 19 points (6-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), one rebound, one assist, one steal, and one block in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 114-107 loss to the Mavericks.
Huerter dropped a career-best 19 points Wednesday including four triples. His minutes continue to rise in the absence of both Taurean Prince (ankle) and Jeremy Lin (back) and he has been taking advantage of the increase. He has been putting up standard league value over the past two weeks despite some inconsistent performances and is worth a look if you have someone to drop on your team.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' John Collins: Career-best 17 rebounds Wednesday
Colling finished with 20 points (10-22 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 17 rebounds, one assist, and one block in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 114-107 loss to Dallas.
Collins continues to thrive for the struggling Hawks, putting up his fifth consecutive double-double including a career-high 17 rebounds. The breakout is on and those who drafted him are certainly being rewarded for their early season patience. The one downside to his game is his lack of defensive numbers but they will hopefully come as he gets more games under his belt.... See More ... See Less

Lin (back) won't play Wednesday against the Mavericks, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
