Clint Capela is considered questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 against Miami as reported by the Miami Herald's Anthony Chiang.
Clint Capela is still dealing with some soreness in his hyperextended right knee but will more than likely play as the team monitors the center heading into gamely Tuesday. Keep an eye on the situation closer to tipoff if you have him in your DFS lineups and make sure he is a go.
Clint Capela (knee) is questionable to play in Sunday's game against the Miami Heat.
Capela is dealing with a right-knee issue that has forced him to miss some time, but this questionable tag is an upgrade and offers some optimism for his return. If he still misses Sunday, fantasy managers can look for John Collins and Onyeka Okongwu to continue to see additional usage in his absence.
Per Chris Kirschner, Clint Capela (knee) will not play Friday versus the Heat according to Hawks coach Nate McMilan.
With Capela out for a third consecutive game, the Hawks will likely start John Collins in his place. While Onyeka Okongwu received the start in game 1, Collins was more productive in his start in game 2 recording a 13 point, 10 rebound double-double. Keep tabs on the official starting lineup before tipoff Friday.
Hawks C Clint Capela has officially been ruled out for Sunday’s Game 1 against Miami as reported by South Florida Sun Sentinel’s Ira Winderman.
Clint Capela suffered a hyperextension in his right knee during Friday’s Play-In Tournament game against the Cavaliers. Capela appears to have avoided a season ending injury to his knee but is likely out until at least Game 4, if not the entire first round matchup against Miami. As long as Capela is out, Onyeka Okungwa and Gorgui Dieng will continue to see increased usage.
Clint Capela scored 17 points and grabbed 14 rebounds including six on the offensive end during Friday's loss. In 27 minutes, he shot 8-for-11 from the field while making just 1-for-3 from the line.
Capela recorded his 34th double-double of the season in 72 games played. While his numbers have dipped in his second season with the Hawks, he is still averaging a double-double with an high field goal percentage to help fantasy owners.
