  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Promoted to Atlanta

    Atlanta recalled Griffin from the G League's College Park Skyhawks on Monday.

    Griffin was recalled along with Mouhamed Gueye (back). While Gueye still appears to be recovering from a stress fracture in his lower back, Griffin is a candidate to be active for Tuesday's game against the Jazz.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Sent to G League

    The Hawks assigned Griffin to the G League's College Park Skyhawks on Wednesday.

    Griffin missed the Hawks' final two games before the All-Star break while battling an illness, though he's presumably healthy again as Atlanta prepares to begin its second-half schedule. The second-year wing should rejoin the Hawks for their next game Friday versus the Raptors, but he's first expected to suit up for College Park in Thursday's matchup with the Indiana Mad Ants for what will be his G League debut.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Out for Wednesday

    Griffin (illness) won't play Wednesday versus Charlotte.

    Griffin will miss his second straight game due to the illness.. The second-year wing showed promise in a supporting role off the bench as a rookie in 2022-23, but he's fallen out of favor with Quin Snyder in the latter's first full season as Atlanta's head coach. Griffin has logged just 18 appearances on the season and is averaging more than 12 fewer minutes per game than he received as a rookie.

    Griffin has been ruled out for Monday's game against Chicago due to an illness, Brad Rowland of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Makes cameo in garbage time

    Griffin tallied three points (1-3 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and turned the ball over twice across seven minutes in Friday's 150-116 loss to the Pacers.

    Griffin was away from the Hawks for about two weeks in December while tending to a personal matter, but he's since been available for each of Atlanta's last four games. However, Friday marked the first occasion in which Griffin left the bench, as he checked into the contest for the final 7:02 amid the blowout. The second-year wing looks as though he'll continue to find himself outside of head coach Quin Snyder's rotation for the foreseeable future.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Scoreless again in loss

    Griffin scored zero points (0-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt) and provided only one rebound in 15 minutes in Tuesday's 128-105 loss to Cleveland.

    Although Tuesday's contest was Griffin's season high in minutes, he could not capitalize in the scoring department, striking out for the second straight outing and fourth overall this season. With injuries sidelining Kobe Bufkin (thumb) and Jalen Johnson (wrist) for a few weeks, Griffin should sustain a relatively defined role off the bench. However, if his contributions are as minimal as his performance Tuesday, it won't be long before the Hawks look to other options.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Team option exercised

    Griffin's 2024-25 team option was picked up by Atlanta on Sunday, Brad Rowland of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

    Griffin's third-year rookie option was purely a formality for the Hawks. The 20-year-old will look to build upon a rookie season in which he averaged 8.9 points and 2.1 rebounds while shooting 46.5 percent from the field and 39.0 percent from beyond the arc in 19.5 minutes per game.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Solid numbers off bench

    Griffin scored 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt) while adding two rebounds, two assists and a steal across 20 minutes off the bench in Monday's 116-112 preseason loss to the Pacers.

    Griffin is slated to open the 2023-24 season as a regular rotation piece for the Hawks, likely to operate as the backup at small forward behind De'Andre Hunter. Griffin can offer value as a three-point threat who can also defend, and he should average around 20 to 25 minutes per night if he stays healthy.
