G - ATL
Tony Snell provided 15 points (5-7 FG, 5-7 3PT), three rebounds, and five assists in Tuesday's win over the Rockets.
Snell efficiently drained five three-pointers and dished out a season-high five assists to help the Hawks take down the Rockets. Despite the strong offensive night, he would only be worth deploying in lineups if the Hawks were missing multiple starters on a given night.
Atlanta Hawks SF Tony Snell starting Wednesday against the Celtics.
For the second consecutive night, the Hawks will turn to Tony Snell to get the start in place of the injured Cam Reddish. Snell logged 11 points, five rebounds, one assist, and two blocks in 33 minutes in a spot start on Tuesday.
Tony Snell, who is dealing with right achilles soreness, is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the New York Knicks.
Snell missed Saturday's game against the Pacers with the same injury. Cam Reddish and Solomon Hill will soak up the 12.6 minutes left behind by Snell if he's unable to go again.
Tony Snell, for the first time this season, is available to play against the Sixers after dealing with inflammation in his foot.
Snell should find a role in the rotation, especially with Bogdan Bogdanovic being out with a fractured knee. Last year in 59 games with the Pistons, he averaged 27.8 minutes of playing time, 8.0 points, 1.9 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.3 blocks per game while shooting 44.5 percent from the floor and 40.2 percent from beyond the arc. It is a big unknown as to how Snell will respond to being back on the floor, and beyond that, fitting into a productive role on his new ball-club. Those things, along with his skill set, make it difficult to determine how to view him for fantasy purposes. For now, it may be best to keep him on waivers for season-long play, and on your radar as a potential flier option in DFS formats.
