C - ATL
Onyeka Okongwu scored 11 points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3PT, 4-5 FT) and grabbed eight rebounds through 28 minutes in Thursday's 137-135 win over the San Antonio Spurs.
Okongwu was solid off the bench and even had more minutes than starting center Clint Capela. Okongwu's minutes over the next few games are a development worth monitoring since he could have more fantasy value if he continues seeing more playing time than Capela.
Atlanta Hawks F/C Onyeka Okongwu has agreed on a four-year, $62 million contract extension.
The former No. 6 overall pick showed flashes of huge upside in the spot starts he made last season. He figures to remain in a backup role for now though behind Clint Capela. Okongwu will still see valuable minutes off the bench and will be ready to see some spot starts if Capela is to miss any time.
Onyeka Okongwu (hamstring) is considered questionable to play in Wednesday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Okongwu is managing hamstring tightness that will leave him questionable on Wednesday. It's not expected to be serious, but it could be enough to knock him out for a game or two. If that's the case, starters Clint Capela and John Collins will likely see some additional playing time in his absence.
Onyeka Okongwu (hamstring) is questionable for Monday's game against the Chicago Bulls.
Okongwu is a recent addition to the Hawks' injury report, being listed with a hamstring injury that he may have sustained in a recent game. The team will make a decision about his availability closer to game time, and fantasy managers can expect starters Clint Capela and John Collins to see more work if Okongwu is ruled out against Chicago.
Onyeka Okongwu recorded a double-double for the Hawks Friday night, scoring 18 points (9-12 FG, 0-1 FT) and grabbing 20 rebounds while also dishing out four assists, recording two steals, and blocking four shots in a 113-111 win over the Pacers.
Okongwu has been an inconsistent option of late for the Hawks in the scoring department while providing decent rebounding output, averaging 9.6 points and 10.4 rebounds per game over his last five games. The 22-year-old is averaging 9.3 points and 7.6 rebounds per game despite a less than desirable usage rate of 14.1% so far this season.
