Hawks' Taurean Prince: Confirmed starter Monday
Prince (Achilles) will start Monday's game against the Clippers, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports.
Prince was initially listed as doubtful, then bumped up to probable, and now he's been confirmed as the starter at small forward. The Baylor product will return from a two-game absence and he's not expected to face a minutes restriction. Prior to the injury, Prince scored 23 and 22 points in back-to-back games against the Lakers and Warriors.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Alex Poythress: Officially out Monday
Poythress (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Clippers.
As expected, Poythress will miss Monday's contest after injuring his ankle during Saturday's game against the Pacers. Omari Spellman and John Collins -- who will be on a minutes restriction -- figure to benefit most with Poythress out. With Collins nearing a return to full health, Poythress could fall out of the rotation when healthy.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Taurean Prince: Upgraded to probable Monday
Prince (Achilles) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Clippers.
Prince was originally listed as doubtful for Monday's game, but it sounds like he's trending towards a return after getting through morning shootaround with no issues. Assuming he plays, Prince's return would likely cut into the playing time of DeAndre' Bembry and Kevin Huerter.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Justin Anderson: Will play on minutes restriction
Anderson (leg) will be on a minutes restriction Monday against the Clippers, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Anderson is set to make his season debut after missing the first 16 games of the season due to tibial stress syndrome. He's expected to play around 12 minutes in his first game back. When fully healthy, Anderson is expected to be a rotational player.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' John Collins: Slated for 18 minutes
Coach Lloyd Pierce said Collins will play around 18 minutes Monday against the Clippers, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Collins is set to see a slight increase in minutes in his second game of the season after being limited to 12 minutes off the bench in his season debut over the weekend. He's still slated to come off the bench, but look for Collins to gradually take on a bigger role over the next few games -- and eventually step into the starting lineup.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Jaylen Adams: Recalled from G-League
Adams was recalled from the G-League's Erie BayHawks on Monday, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Adams was assigned to the BayHawks a few weeks ago after playing in four games for Atlanta. Adams played in seven games for Erie during his recent stint, averaging 18.4 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.6 assists across 30.1 minutes per contest. He'll likely be little more than a depth option while with Atlanta for the time being.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Alex Poythress: Unlikely to face Clippers
Poythress (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Clippers, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Poythress bruised his left ankle in Saturday's game against the Pacers and is trending in the wrong direction heading into Monday. Omari Spellman and the recently-returned John Collins would stand the most to gain if, and when, Poythress is officially ruled out.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Justin Anderson: Likely to debut Monday
Anderson (leg) is trending towards debuting Monday against the Clippers while on a minutes restriction, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Anderson has yet to play this season while suffering from tibial stress syndrome. His exact restriction for Monday is unclear, but he's expected to simply be a rotational player upon full return to health anyway.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Taurean Prince: Doubtful for Monday
Prince (Achilles) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Clippers, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Monday's anticipated absence will mark the third game Prince will have missed while dealing with soreness in his right Achilles. DeAndre' Bembry continues to be the best bet for more minutes in the absence of Prince.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' John Collins: Scores 12 in first action of season
Collins had 12 points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT) and two rebounds in Saturday's loss to Indiana.
Making his first appearance of the season, Collins was limited to only 12 minutes off the bench, but that number figures to increase gradually over the next few games. At some point, Collins will take over as the starting power forward, likely pushing Alex Poythress to a bench role.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Kent Bazemore: Leads ATL starters with 13 in loss
Bazemore scored 13 points (5-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding five rebounds, four assists, four steals and a block in 31 minutes during Saturday's 97-89 loss to the Pacers.
He was the only starter to score in double digits on another terrible night for the Hawks offense. Bazemore's numbers haven't been affected much by the lack of talent around him -- he is averaging a career-high 14.7 points a game, but his shot volume remains almost unchanged from what it was when he was a complementary option on a competitive Atlanta roster....

Hawks' Jeremy Lin: Scores team-high 16 off bench
Lin scored 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt) while adding four rebounds, four assists and three steals in 24 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 97-89 loss to the Pacers.
It's the seventh time in the last 10 games the 30-year-old journeyman has scored in double digits, and he's averaging 13.6 points, 3.9 assists, 2.0 boards, 1.5 three-pointers and 1.3 steals over that stretch. Trae Young will continue to start at point guard for the rebuilding Hawks, but the rookie's recent shooting slump has given Lin an opportunity to make a positive contribution.... See More ...

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Exits with ankle bruise
Poythress left Saturday's game against the Pacers due to a bruised left ankle.
The seriousness of the injury hasn't been disclosed, but it's enough to sideline Poythress for the remainder of Saturday's game. He should tentatively be considered questionable for Monday's matchup against the Clippers.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' DeAndre' Bembry: Heads to bench Saturday
Bembry will come off the bench Saturday against the Pacers, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Kevin Huerter will enter the starting lineup in place of Bembry after the 24-year-old struggled in a spot start Thursday against the Nuggets. Bembry has seen his playing time drop off a bit over the last four games, averaging 8.0 points, and 2.8 rebounds across 16.6 minutes per game during that stretch.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Kevin Huerter: Enters starting lineup
Huerter is starting Saturday against the Pacers, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Huerter will enter the starting five in place of DeAndre' Bembry as the Hawks look to switch things up Saturday. The rookie has started one other game this season, tallying seven points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals across 32 minutes in that contest.... See More ... See Less

Collins will come off the bench during Saturday's season debut against the Pacers, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Hawks' Alex Poythress: Starting Saturday
Poythress will start Saturday's game against the Pacers, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.

Hawks' Alex Len: Will play Saturday
Len (ankle) will be available for Saturday's game against the Pacers, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports.
Len had initially been listed as probable on the injury report, but he's not included on the Hawks' updated version. Expect the big man to split minutes with Dewayne Dedmon at center, while the Hawks also ease John Collins back into action for the first time this season.... See More ... See Less
