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.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Clint Capela: Grabs 17 boards, swats three shots
Capela registered 10 points (4-13 FG, 2-2 FT), 17 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal in 30 minutes during Saturday's 132-121 loss to the Bucks.
Capela struggled badly from the field, but he's not expected to carry the offense on a regular basis, and he still found a way to deliver value with his energy on the glass and active rim protection. Capela's scoring numbers have been pedestrian at best, as he has failed to score more than 14 points in five straight games, but he should remain a valuable fantasy asset if he keeps crashing the ball and protecting the rim as he's done it all season long....

Hawks' Dejounte Murray: Reaches 30-point mark in loss
Murray racked up 30 points (12-19 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, three assists and two steals in 34 minutes during Saturday's 132-121 loss to Milwaukee.
Murray often deploys as Trae Young's sidekick in the backcourt and delivers elite value when filling out the stat sheet, but these scoring exploits give him a noticeable boost to his upside. Murray has scored at least 30 points in three games this season, and while those scoring exploits do not come often, he has established himself as a reliable fantasy asset. Through his last 10 games, Murray is averaging 19.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.2 steals per contest.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Trae Young: Another double-double
Young ended with 32 points (13-28 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, 12 assists and two steals over 37 minutes during Saturday's 132-121 loss to Milwaukee.
Young delivered another impressive despite the fact the Hawks couldn't top the Bucks, one of the contending teams in the Eastern Conference. Regardless of whether the Hawks win or lose, Young has been able to deliver excellent stat lines on a consistent basis, and he continues to deliver first-round value even if his efficiency isn't very high. Through his last 10 games, Young is averaging a robust 29.4 points, 11.1 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.6 steals per contest.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Saddiq Bey: Scores 13 points in win
Bey closed with 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four rebounds and three steals over 34 minutes during Thursday's 137-135 win over the Spurs.
Bey was efficient on both ends of the court and delivered a decent stat line in an offense carried by Trae Young and Dejounte Murray. Bey has been playing as the starting power forward in place of Jalen Johnson (wrist), and he figures to remain in that role for the time being since Johnson is expected to be out for a few weeks in a best-case scenario....

Hawks' Dejounte Murray: Thrives against former team
Murray totaled 24 points (10-21 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and five steals across 35 minutes during Thursday's 137-135 victory over the Spurs.
Murray stuffed the stat sheet against his former team and delivered a well-rounded stat line as the Hawks barely escaped with a win over the Spurs. The veteran floor general has struggled with consistency in the scoring department, but he's trending in the right direction of late and has scored at least 20 points in three of his last six appearances....

Hawks' Trae Young: Massive double-double Thursday
Young produced 45 points (15-29 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 13-16 FT), four rebounds, 14 assists and two steals across 40 minutes during Thursday's 137-135 victory over the Spurs.
Young can light up the scoreboard at any time, and he was impressive Thursday against a combative San Antonio team that battled until the end. Young has been a double-double machine this season and has registered that tally in 11 out of 17 appearances. Plus, this was a season-high mark in scoring, and his third outing with 40 or more points in the current campaign. Young can be prone to deliver some off nights in terms of shooting and turnovers, but his shooting volume and usage rate grant him a high floor every time he steps on the court.... See More ...

Hawks' Trent Forrest: Plays in loss
Forrest played the final four minutes of Tuesday's 128-105 loss to the Cavaliers and missed his only field-goal attempt.
While Forrest remains on a two-way contract, his availability on the court is very restricted. Unless the Hawks call him up permanently from the G League, he will continue to make random appearances in a limited fashion.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Wesley Matthews: Season high in minutes
Despite not scoring (0-3 FG, 0-3 3Pt), Matthews chipped in three rebounds and two assists across 16 minutes of action in Tuesday's 128-105 loss to the Cavaliers.
Matthews has been elevated to one of the Hawk's primary three-and-D wings off the bench due to Jalen Johnson's (wrist) absence, but the former has not exactly provided much on the stat sheet (17 total points and just one steal over seven games). Matthews will continue to see opportunities on the court, but do not expect much from him fantasy-wise as the season progresses.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Clint Capela: Comes close to double-double
Capela racked up 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two blocks and two steals across 22 minutes during Tuesday's 128-105 loss to the Cavaliers.
Capela ended just one board shy of posting what would've been his fourth double-double over his last six outings, and the veteran big man continues to be a two-way threat while maintaining his place as Atlanta's starting center. Onyeka Okongwu has shown he could be in line for more minutes sooner than later, but until that happens, Capela will continue to have value in fantasy as an above-average rebounder and finisher near the rim. He's averaging 10.6 points and 9.5 rebounds per game in November.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' De'Andre Hunter: Leads Atlanta in scoring
Hunter recorded 18 points (5-12 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), four rebounds and two assists over 26 minutes during Tuesday's 128-105 loss to the Cavaliers.
Hunter was one of two Atlanta players who scored 18 points in a woeful showing offensively for the Hawks, and while Hunter's final stat line was decent, he had a fair share of struggles from beyond the arc. Hunter was coming off three consecutive outings with 20 or more points before Tuesday, so he is currently going through his most productive scoring stretch of the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Trae Young: Poor shooting display in loss
Young finished with 13 points (3-14 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT), one rebound, 10 assists and one steal across 32 minutes during Tuesday's 128-105 loss to the Cavaliers.
Young struggled badly from the field in this one, though he wasn't the only Atlanta player who shot the ball poorly -- no one on the Hawks' roster reached the 20-point mark during the 23-point loss. The 10 assists were a decent output and marked Young's fourth double-double over his last seven contests, but he needs to show more consistency in terms of shooting efficiency to push his fantasy value one step further....
