Fantasy Impact: The two sides get an extension done before Murray enters the final year of his contract. The deal is expected to include a player option for Murray. It will be Trae Young alongside Murray leading the Hawks franchise in the upcoming seasons.

Fantasy Impact: Matthews was acquired by the Hawks at the trade deadline last season. He should maintain a similar role to what he held last year in the rotation for Atlanta where he averaged close to 13 minutes per game.

Fantasy Impact: Collins had been in the middle of trade talks since last season. Atlanta is largely unloading Collins’ three years, $78 million for some roster building flexibility and alignment with looming changes to salary cap. Collins joins Lauri Markkanen in the front court for a Utah team that was in the playoff mix for most of last year until late in the season. Onyeka Okongwu and Jalen Johnson should also now be in line for a bigger roles with Atlanta next season.

Trae Young (illness) is questionable to play in Tuesday night's game against the Chicago Bulls. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: A non-covid illness will leave Young's status for Tuesday up in the air. He's listed as questionable to play for the time being, and the team will make a final decision regarding his availability sometime prior to tip-off. Dejounte Murray and Bogdan Bogdanovic will both get additional run if Young is unable to play on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Tuesday will mark the third-straight game that Hunter has missed because of a knee injury. It's unclear when the team expects him to be back, but the hope is that it will be sooner rather than later. Rookie AJ Griffin and Saddiq Bey will both continue to get more work until Hunter is back in the lineup for Atlanta.

Jalen Johnson (groin/hamstring) is questionable for Friday's game against the Brooklyn Nets. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Johnson is dealing with injuries to his groin and hamstring that will threaten his availability on Friday. He doesn't get a lot of work even when healthy for the Hawks, so his return likely won't have any big implications for fantasy purposes.

Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) is listed as available to play in Sunday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: A knee injury initially left Bogdanovic on Atlanta's injury report for Sunday, but it's not considered serious and won't have an affect on his availability. He should play at full capacity and projects to be a solid flex option in a matchup against the Grizzlies.

Clint Capela recorded a double-double for the Hawks Saturday, grabbing 17 rebounds and scoring 17 points (5-5 FG, 7-8 FT) while also blocking one shot and dishing out two assists in a 143-130 win over the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Capela has been a strong interior option of late for the Hawks, grabbing at least nine rebounds and scoring at least 11 points in four of his last five games for the club. The 28-year-old has provided solid scoring and rebounding output for fantasy owners on most nights, averaging 12.0 points and 11.2 rebounds per game to go along with a usage rate of 15.1% so far this season.

Saddiq Bey led the Hawks offense Saturday night, scoring 22 points (7-12 FG, 4-8 3PT, 4-4 FT) while also recording two steals, grabbing three rebounds, and dishing out two assists in a 117-109 loss to the Heat.

Fantasy Impact: Bey has not offered much consistency of late for the Hawks, reaching double-figures in scoring in three of his last five games for the club. The 23-year-old has fallen back to earth after a breakout 2021-22 season, averaging 14.4 points and 4.6 rebounds per game while posting a 19.9% usage rate so far this season.

Frank Kaminsky has been traded to the Houston Rockets in a deal also involving teammate Justin Holiday for Garrison Matthews and Bruno Fernando. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Kaminsky saw his modest minutes from previous seasons plummet with the Hawks. He could see a slight uptick in minutes with the Rockets, but it’s unlikely enough to make him anywhere near roster worthy.

Justin Holiday has been traded to the Houston Rockets in a cost-cutting deal for Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact: Holiday was playing a minimal role for the Hawks, so it’s not a surprise he’s no long in Atlanta. He will at least provide a veteran presence for a young Rockets team but not much else.

Onyeka Okongwu (hamstring) is considered questionable to play in Wednesday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Jarrett Culver is not on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Nets. (Source: Kevin Chouinard on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bogdan Bogdanovic and De’Andre Hunter are both listed as questionable. Culver would only be worth consideration as a streamer if they're both sidelined.

Trent Forrest (concussion) is questionable to play in Atlanta's matchup against the Brooklyn Nets on Friday. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Forrest has missed some time while in the league's concussion protocol, but he has a chance to be cleared and play in Friday's game against the Nets. The team will likely make a decision about his availability closer to game time, and he likely wouldn't have a restriction on his minutes if he is active.

AJ Griffin stellar in win Friday

Sat, Dec 3rd 10:49am EST
By Leo Sells

AJ Griffin scored 24 points (11-16 FG, 2-5 3PT) to go with three rebounds and three steals across 35 minutes in Friday's 117-109 win over the Denver Nuggets.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin was impressive on Friday, scoring the second-most points on the team and playing effective defense in a win over the Nuggets. He found his way into the starting lineup in the absence of Trae Young (shoulder), and the rookie should be a quality flex option if Young has to miss more time.
