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
Hawks' John Collins: Coming off bench in debut
Collins will come off the bench during Saturday's season debut against the Pacers, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Collins will step onto the court for the first time this season after being sidelined with an ankle injury. It's unclear how many minutes he'll be given, but coach Lloyd Pierce will opt to ease Collins in from off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Alex Poythress: Starting Saturday
Poythress will start Saturday's game against the Pacers, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.
Poythress will be getting the start against his former team. Over the past two games, he's totaled 15 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and a steal in 45 minutes.... See More ... See Less
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
Hawks' John Collins: Absent from injury report
Collins (ankle) is not listed on the Hawks' injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Pacers, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Collins has been sidelined for over a month with an ankle injury, but looks ready to make his regular season debut. He averaged an impressive 10.5 points (57.6 percent from the field) and 7.3 boards as a rookie last season. He will presumably be worked back into the swing of things, so don't expect a heavy workload right away, but as the season progresses he should have plenty opportunities to improve on those numbers....

Hawks' Taurean Prince: Out Saturday
Prince (Achilles) will not play in Saturday's matchup with the Pacers, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
No surprise here, as Prince was given a doubtful designation heading into the evening. It will mark his second consecutive game missed. DeAndre' Bembry is the most likely candidate to replace him in the starting lineup at small forward, while rooke Kevin Huerter could see some increased run as well.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Dewayne Dedmon: Expected back Saturday
Dedmon (personal) is not listed on the Hawks' injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Pacers, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.
Dedmon missed three games while dealing with a personal matter, but all indications are that he'll be back in action Saturday. Prior to the absence, he'd averaged 19.4 minutes over his last five contests.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Justin Anderson: Still out Saturday
Anderson (leg) is out Saturday against the Pacers, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.
Anderson is still in recovery from tibial stress syndrome. His next chance to take the floor arrives Monday against the Clippers.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Taurean Prince: Doubtful Saturday vs. Pacers
Prince (Achilles) is doubtful Saturday against the Pacers, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.
Prince missed Thursday's blowout loss to the Nuggets due to right Achilles soreness, which appears likely to keep him out Saturday as well. Assuming that's the case, DeAndre' Bembry is a strong candidate to start for a second straight contest.... See More ... See Less
