Hawks' Alex Len: Questionable Thursday vs. Nuggets
Len is questionable for Thursday's game against the Nuggets due to a sprained left ankle, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Len likely picked up the injury during Tuesday's game against the Warriors, when he posted 14 points, seven rebounds and one assist in 32 minutes. More information on his status should arrive following morning shootaround. With Dewayne Dedmon (personal) ruled out, the Hawks would be thin at center if Len was unavailable as well.... See More ...

Hawks' Justin Anderson: Out again Thursday
Anderson (leg) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Nuggets, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site
It's more of the same for Anderson, who remains without a timetable for a return. It will still likely be a while before he is back on the court, but his next opportunity to return will be Saturday in Indiana.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' John Collins: Doubtful for Thursday's game
Collins is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Nuggets, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
It is unclear if Collins will be on any sort of restrictions if he does manage to take the court on Thursday, although it is still unlikely he plays. The second-year big man has missed the entirety of the season with left ankle inflammation but appears to be nearing a return at some point within the next week. If he's unable to go on Thursday, his net opportunity would be Saturday against the Clippers.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Dewayne Dedmon: Out Thursday vs. Nuggets
Dedmon (personal) is out Thursday against the Nuggets, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Dedmon will miss a third straight game due to personal reasons Thursday. In his stead, Alex Len has seen extended run, averaging 15.5 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 29.5 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Vince Carter: Stuffs stat sheet off bench
Carter contributed 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds and three assists across 17 minutes in the Hawks' 110-103 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
The ageless one did it again, checking in as the Hawks bench's second-highest scorer on the night while remaining highly active on the boards as well. Carter's rebounding total was actually a season high, while his point total was his second highest of the campaign. The 41-year-old's contributions will naturally fluctuate from game to game, but nights like Tuesday when he flashes a hot hand from distance always offer the promise of a strong return....

Hawks' DeAndre' Bembry: Leads bench in scoring
Bembry finished with 13 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), one rebound, one assist, three steals and one block across 17 minutes in the Hawks' 110-103 loss to the Warriors on Wednesday.
Bembry's point total paced the Hawks' second unit and served as his first double-digit scoring effort since Nov. 1 against the Kings, when he'd also put up 13 points. The 24-year-old's minutes are often over 20, which provides him plenty of opportunity to continue churning out solid production across the stat sheet. Bembry boasts career bests in all major categories, and he's been particularly impressive on the defensive end with 1.4 steals per contest. His bench role limits his fantasy utility to deeper formats at present, but he's also proven viable as a cost-effective DFS play on multiple occasions this season.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Trae Young: Struggles with shot in loss
Young managed only four points (2-12 FG, 0-5 3Pt) but added nine assists, five rebounds and three steals across 28 minutes in the Hawks' 110-103 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
Young showed that he could keep his head in the game and still produce a solid stat line on nights when his shot is lacking, as he was able to still dish out a game-high number of assists and provide solid production on the boards as well. The performance was Young's first true clunker on the offensive end, as he'd scored no fewer than 11 points in any contest overall, and no less than 14 in his six November games prior to Tuesday. He'll look to quickly bounce back when Atlanta continues its road trip in Denver on Thursday night.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Alex Len: Contributes 14 points in defeat
Len mustered 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-5 FT), seven rebounds and one assist across 32 minutes in the Hawks' 110-103 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
Len got into some foul trouble, but he still managed to turn in another solid line. The 25-year-old has back-to-back double-digit scoring efforts, and he's accomplished the feat in five of seven November contests overall. That represents an improvement over his seven October games, when Len scored nine points or fewer in five of them despite averaging over two more minutes per outing that he is thus far in the current month (23.7, as compared to 21.1)....

Hawks' Kent Bazemore: Scoring-heavy line in loss
Bazemore supplied 18 points (7-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal across 27 minutes in the Hawks' 110-103 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
Bazemore checked in behind only Taurean Prince in terms of scoring for the Hawks, although he provided lighter production than usual in other categories. The seven-year veteran has hit his stride offensively in November, as he's now posted double-digit point tallies in six of his last seven contests. Factoring in Tuesday's production, Bazemore is averaging 14.7 points (on 46.3 percent shooting) in the current month, and his 46.6 percent success rate for the season serves as a career-best figure....

Hawks' Taurean Prince: Leads team in scoring during loss
Prince posted 22 points (8-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, and four assists across 39 minutes during the Hawks' 110-103 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
Prince's scoring total led the Hawks on the night, while his four made threes also served as a team high. The third-year wing has been red hot from the field over the last two games, draining 17 of his 27 attempts, including nine of 15 from three-point range. Prince continues to serve as one of Atlanta's most well-rounded assets in their rebuilding efforts, affording him plenty of fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Justin Anderson: Out Tuesday
Anderson (leg) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.
The Hawks are still yet to provide an update on Anderson's timetable, but there has not been any indication that he will be ready to play anytime soon.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Dewayne Dedmon: Out Tuesday
Dedmon (personal) has been listed as out for Tuesday's game against Denver, Brad Rowland of Uproxx reports.
It's still unclear exactly why Dedmon is out but it is likely the Hawks are giving him all the time he needs to work through whatever is going on. The big man will have an opportunity to take the court next on Thursday in Denver, but until more is known there isn't a definite timeframe for his return.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' DeAndre' Bembry: Fills out stat sheet off bench
Bembry supplied nine points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds and two assists across 16 minutes in the Hawks' 107-106 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.
Bembry was typically solid off the bench, an encouraging trend that he's kept up in the majority of games this season. The 24-year-old wing is aptly capable of stuffing the stat sheet in relatively modest allotments of playing time, constantly affording him solid value in deeper formats and as a cost-effective DFS option. Factoring in Sunday's production, Bembry is averaging new high-water marks in points (8.2), rebounds (5.1), assists (2.3), steals (1.2) and three-point percentage (37.9) across a career-high 24.5 minutes....

Hawks' Alex Len: Double-doubles in narrow loss
Len managed 17 points (8-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal across 27 minutes in the Hawks' 107-106 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.
Len was a force down low against one of the most vulnerable teams in the league against centers in the Lakers. Sunday's strong effort aside, the 25-year-old continues to struggle a bit with consistency, as his first double-double of November was preceded by a pair of single-digit point tallies. Len does continue to hold down the starting job at the five over Dewayne Dedmon, but that's only affording him a relatively modest 23.7 minutes per contest.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Trae Young: Strong line despite late-game failure
Young finished with 20 points (8-18 FG, 4-8 3Pt), 12 assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block across 35 minutes in the Hawks' 107-106 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.
Young's line was stellar overall, but he was stuffed by Tyson Chandler on a would-be game-winning layup with under a second, sealing the Lakers' victory. Young now has four double-doubles in six November games, and he's reached the 20-point mark in two of those contests. The 20-year-old has stepped up his efforts as a facilitator in the new month, as he's upped his assists average from October's 6.6 to an impressive 10.0.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Kent Bazemore: Offsets strong line with key technical
Bazemore delivered 21 points (7-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists, five steals and one block across 33 minutes in the Hawks' 107-106 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.
Bazemore's scoring total was second on the team for the night, but he partly sullied his strong overall line with a key foul. The 29-year-old was called for a technical for yelling at the referees following a Kyle Kuzma game-tying layup with 1:34 to go, and the Lakers forward made the resulting free throw to give Los Angeles a 105-104 lead at the time. Bazemore otherwise continued his stellar play Sunday, posting his best scoring total since Oct. 24 and recording a season high in steals. His 58.3 percent success rate from the floor -- which included a 60.0 percent tally from three-point range -- qualified as his fifth such tally over six November games.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Taurean Prince: Strong all-around line in narrow loss
Prince registered 21 points (9-13 FG, 5-8 3Pt), seven rebounds, one assist and two steals across 35 minutes in the Hawks' 107-106 loss to the Lakers on Sunday.
Prince's scoring total was a team high on a night when the Hawks fell just short of a win. The 24-year-old wing was exceedingly sharp from the field, as his 69.2 percent success rate -- which included a 62.5 percent tally from three-point range -- both qualified as season highs. Despite Atlanta's dim prospects from a team perspective during this rebuilding season, Prince's typically well-rounded stat lines continue to be a positive for both the franchise and fantasy owners....
