Top Bruno Fernando News

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Back to bench

    Fernando will return to a reserve role in Friday's game versus the Raptors, Brad Rowland of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

    Fernando started at center in the Hawks' previous game with Clint Capela (adductor) sidelined. However, the latter is slated to return to the starting lineup, thus resulting in Fernando moving back to his usual role off the bench.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Starting Wednesday

    Fernando is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with Charlotte, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    With both Clint Capela (adductor) and Onyeka Okongwu (toe) sidelined, Fernando will be thrust into the starting lineup and should get all the run he can handle. He has some upside as a shot-blocker, so Fernando could be someone to think about streaming in deep leagues. Joining him in the first unit Wednesday evening will be Trae Young, Dejounte Murray, Saddiq Bey and Jalen Johnson.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Available for Monday's game

    Fernando (illness) is available for Monday's game against the Bulls.

    Fernando was probable for Monday's matchup and has officially been cleared to return from his one-game absence. Over his last three appearances, he's averaged 8.0 points and 3.7 rebounds in 13.3 minutes per game.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Still battling illness

    Fernando (illness) is probable for Monday's game against Chicago.

    Fernando continues to deal with an illness but will likely be able to return Monday. Clint Capela (groin) has already been ruled out for Monday's contest, which would leave Onyeka Okongwu as the lone traditional center available if Fernando is unable to suit up.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Out due to illness

    Fernando (illness) will not play in Saturday's game against Houston.

    Fernando has been picking up the backup center minutes recently with Clint Capela (thigh) out, averaging 13.3 minutes over his past three games. The Hawks are likely to utilize some smaller lineups with Fernando sidelined.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Joins rotation Monday

    Fernando recorded seven points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 14 minutes off the bench in Monday's 149-144 loss to the Clippers.

    Fernando had missed four consecutive games with left lower back spasms before he was cleared for action over the weekend. He didn't log any minutes in either of the Hawks' subsequent two contests due to his status as a non-rotation player, but Fernando entered the mix Monday with Atlanta in need of a new backup center while Onyeka Okongwu moved into the starting five to replace the injured Clint Capela (adductor). The Hawks don't plan to re-evaluate Capela until at least next weekend or early next week, so Fernando looks as though he'll be in for a multi-game run as the backup center. Fernando's minutes will likely sit in the teens in most contests, but he could have some appeal as a streaming option for traditional big-man statistics (field-goal percentage, rebounds and blocks) in deeper leagues.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Set to return Friday

    Fernando isn't on the injury report for Friday's game versus the Suns.

    Fernando will return to action Friday after missing the previous five games with back spasms. The 25-year-old big man will likely compete for depth minutes in Atlanta's frontcourt.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Out again Tuesday

    Fernando (back) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Lakers, Brad Rowland of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

    Tuesday night will mark Fernando's fifth consecutive missed game due to injury, and he has missed eight out of the Hawks' last nine. In the 13 games in which he has appeared in this season, Fernando has averaged 2.9 points, 2.0 rebounds, 0.4 blocks, 0.3 assists and 0.2 steals over 6.5 minutes.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Ruled out Friday

    Fernando (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Mavericks.

    Fernando's ongoing absence shouldn't impact the rotation, as Clint Capela and Onyeka Okongwu are both available. Fernando's next chance to suit up will come Sunday versus the Raptors.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Game-time call for Friday

    Fernando (back) is questionable for Friday's game against the Mavericks.

    Fernando missed Wednesday's game against the Warriors due to back spasms, and his availability remains in doubt for Friday's matchup. It shouldn't impact Atlanta's rotation much if he's unable to go.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Out Wednesday

    Fernando (back) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

    Fernando will be watching from the sidelines Wednesday night, but since he's a negligible part of the rotation, his absence from the active roster won't significantly impact fantasy hoops. His next opportunity to play will come Friday against the Mavericks.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Questionable for Wednesday

    Fernando is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Warriors due to left lower back spasms.

    Fernando isn't typically in the rotation and has averaged 7.2 minutes across five appearances in January. His potential absence shouldn't have an impact on fantasy.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Used sparingly in loss

    Fernando registered four points (1-1 FG, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds over five minutes during Saturday's 127-99 loss to the Wizards.

    Fernando saw five minutes in the loss, cracking the rotation for the fourth time in the past five games. Unfortunately, that's where the good news ends for Fernando. With both Clint Capela and Onyeka Okongwu healthy, the Hawks are set at the center position. The only way Fernando is going to have a chance at putting up fantasy value is if one of the primary options is forced to miss time for one reason or another.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Returns from G League cameo

    Fernando was recalled to Atlanta's roster Tuesday morning, Brad Rowland of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

    Fernando made his 2023-24 G League debut with the College Park Skyhawks on Monday, scoring eight points in 21 minutes. He'll return to the NBA club in advance of Wednesday's game against Brooklyn, although he's totaled just 16 minutes of action this season across five appearances for Atlanta.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Sees action in blowout loss

    Fernando logged two points (1-6 FG) and three rebounds over four minutes in Tuesday's 128-105 loss to Cleveland.

    Tuesday's contest marked Fernando's fifth game played this season, and the overwhelming majority of his minutes result from blowouts that prompt the Hawks to clear their bench. As long as centers Clint Capela and Onyeka Okongwu remain healthy, Fernando is not expected to see meaningful minutes on the court.

  • Hawks' Bruno Fernando: Gets contract guaranteed

    Fernando's contract for the 2023-24 season was guaranteed on Monday, Lauren L. Williams of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Fernando is slated to make $2.6 million next season. The Hawks are deep at center with Clint Capela and Onyeka Okongwu, and they also selected Mouhamed Gueye with the 39th pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. Fernando will have to fight for limited minutes next season unless something changes.
