F - ATL
Onyeka Okongwu totaled 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in the Hawks’ 122-101 loss to the Pistons on Wednesday.
Okongwu scored 11.0 points in the Hawks' loss to the Pistons putting together another strong performance given his limited time on the floor. He is a strong point-per-minute fantasy asset, however, given his limited role he is best reserved for a single-game contest or small slates.
Onyeka Okongwu scored 14 points (7-8 FG), grabbed five rebounds, and added one assist in 17 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 116-106 loss to the Hornets.
Okongwu was very efficient from the field on Wednesday, which has been a theme this season as he is shooting 70.2% from the field this season. Despite this, the 21-year-old does not have enough of a role in the offense to be a solid fantasy option.
Onyeka Okongwu will be in uniform for Monday's game against the Detroit Pistons.
Okongwu missed two games from being in the concussion protocols, but he has since passed them and will play Monday night. The young big should find himself with a similar role to what he had pre-injury.
Onyeka Okongwu is off the injury report and will be available to play in Monday's game against the Detroit Pistons.
Okongwu was put in the NBA's concussion protocols earlier this week and missed two games as a result. He has since cleared the protocols, and should be good to go for Monday's game. Look for him to see close to his usual workload in his return.
According to Hawks reporter Sarah Spencer, Onyeka Okongwu has entered the NBA's concussion protocol and has been ruled out Thursday
During Tuesday's game against the Celtics, Okungwu suffered a blow to the head and went to the locker room not to be heard from for the rest of the night. The young center will now enter the protocols leaving his availability for the remainder of the week in question, he will miss Thursday's game as a result. If John Collins doesn't play, the combination of both his and Okungwu's minutes will shift to a combination of Gorgui Dieng, Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot, and Clint Capela.
