With Dewayne Dedmon now on Sacramento, the only other centers on the roster are newly acquired Damian Jones and rookie Bruce Fernando. Alex Len claims that he has focused this summer on securing the starting role. He averaged nearly two three-point shots per game in the final two months of last season, and is now looking to further improve his jump shot. (Source: The Athletic )

Fantasy Impact: The center position could possibly be a fluid situation to monitor in Atlanta this season. But with Len being a solid source for field goals, he should be a safe late-rounder to take in drafts.

Dewayne Dedmon has agreed to a three-year, $41 million contract with the Kings. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dedmon is a quality defender and rebounder, his skill set should coexist with Kings power forward Marvin Bagley. He also improved his shot from downtown last season, averaging 1.3 three-pointers made, compared to 0.8 in 2017-2018. Dedmon averaged 10.8 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.1 blocks, and 1.1 steals in 64 games for the Hawks last season.

Kent Bazemore was traded to the Trail Blazers on Monday in exchange for Evan Turner. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bazemore will now have a chance to contribute for a playoff-caliber team. He will add depth at wing and could replace Rodney Hood, who is set to enter unrestricted free agency next week. Bazemore averaged 11.6 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 0.6 blocks in 67 games for the Hawks last season.

Taurean Prince has been traded to the Nets in exchange for Allen Crabbe plus two first-round picks. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It's a solid trade for the Hawks as Prince had a down season and they score two first-rounders. Prince gets a downgrade in fantasy competing with DeMarre Carroll, Joe Harris, and Rodions Kurucs next season for minutes.

The nineteenth overall pick in the 2018 NBA draft, Kevin Huerter, has made the second-team all-rookie team. After only playing five minutes in his pro debut, Huerter went on to average 9.7 points, 2.9 assist, 3.3 rebounds over 27.3 minutes a game. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Huerter scored a career-high 27 points against the New Orleans Pelicans in March. Over the last month of the season, he averaged 13.5 points a game which bodes well for his fantasy impact in the 2019-2020 season. Huerter could land on your rosters as a dependable three-point shooting wing who could have streaky explosive games.

John Collins will rest on Sunday versus the Milwaukee Bucks. (Source: Chris Kirschner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Hawks will be playing without Collins, Young, and Dewayne Dedmon in this one. Alex Len is in line for major minutes and is worth a look in DFS.

Trae Young will rest on Sunday along with F John Collins against the Milwaukee Bucks. Jaylen Adams and Kent Bazemore will be in line for more minutes. (Source: Chris Kirschner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Young and Collins out, Taurean Prince gets a solid boost and will be in line for a lead role on the offensive end. Adams, Bazemore, Bembry, and Kevin Huerter all get a boost in value.

Tyler Zeller agreed to terms with the Grizzlies for the rest of the season. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Zeller is in line for some minutes with Joakim Noah injured. He could pick up a couple of minutes behind JV but is off the fantasy radar.

Vince Carter (rest) is not available on Wednesday against the Sixers. (Source: Brad Rowland on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Carter is 42 now and he played nearly 30 minutes yesterday so it makes sense to give the old man a night off.

Justin Anderson will start for Atlanta against the Blazers on Friday. (Source: Kevin Chouinard on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Anderson steps into the starting lineup for the injured Taurean Prince (foot). Bench guys like Keivn Huerter and DeAndre Bembry are better plays than Anderson tonight if you're thinking DFS though.

Miles Plumlee will undergo knee surgery and miss the rest of the season. (Source: Chris Vivlamore on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Plumlee is off the fantasy as this is another injury for Plumlee causing him to miss more time.

DeAndre Bembry fell just short of a double-double on Tuesday in a loss to the Rockets. Bembry finsihed with 14 points and nine rebounds in just 23 minutes. He added two assists and two three-pointers.

Fantasy Impact: Bembry should be a player to keep an eye on for daily owners as the team could shut down Kent Bazemore and others with only a few games left in the season.

Alex Poythress has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the New Orleans Pelicans with an ankle injury. (Source: Brad Rowland on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Omari Spellman out, Poythress got called up but isn't healthy enough to play so leave him on the wire. Alex Len will pick up a few more minutes.

Category: Injury Updates

Omari Spellman is expected to miss the rest of the season due to a left ankle sprain. With only a few games left, DeAndre Bembry and Kevin Huerter will pick up a few more minutes. (Source: Chris Kirschner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Hawks are not in the playoff hunt so no reason to force Spellman back into action this late in the season. Huerter is worth a look in most leagues if you're desperate in the playoffs.

Jeremy Lin will make his debut for the Raptors on Wednesday night when they take on the Wizards. (Source: Josh Lewenberg on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lin has officially cleared waivers and signed with the Raptors. With Kawhi Leonard (knee) and Fred VanVleet (thumb) out, Lin could actually see some decent minutes in his Toronto debut. With VanVleet likely out over a month, Linsanity is definitely a fantasy possibility in standard leagues right now.

Shelvin Mack has been claimed by the Hornets on Sunday off waivers after the Grizzlies sent him to Atlanta and the Hawks waived him shortly after. Mack will be fighting for minutes behind Kemba Walker with Tony Parker and Malik Monk. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Mack is not in a better position in terms of fantasy after being claimed by the Hornets. Mack is best left on the waiver wire.

Daniel Hamilton was able to score nine points, eight rebounds, and six assists in 23 minutes off the bench on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Hamilton was replaced as the starter by DeAndre' Bembry but was able to put together a nice stat line off the bench. The Hawks were up big in this one, so it will be hard to trust this kind of production going forward.
