Fantasy Impact: It was an off game for Bogdanovic, as he finished the game with just seven points (3-11 FG, 1-6 3PT, 0-2 FT). It's clear his knee was bothering him, but the hope is that he will be able to bounce back in either Game 7 against Philadelphia or next round in the Eastern Conference Finals.

John Collins scored 19 points (7-12 Fg, 3-4 3Pt, 2-4 Ft) 11 rebounds, two blocks, and one assist across 36 minutes in the Hawks 109-106 win over the Sixers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Wednesday night in Philadelphia.

Fantasy Impact: Hunter did not play in Game 1 or 2 against Philadelphia and is now set to be out at least three months while recovering from surgery. Expect F Danilo Gallinari to continue seeing an expanded role throughout the rest of the playoffs in Hunter's absence.

Clint Capela scored 14 points (6-7 Fg, 2-2 Ft) 15 rebounds, two blocks, and one steal across 36 minutes in the Hawks 103-89 Game 5 win over the Knicks on Wednesday night in NYC.

Fantasy Impact: Capela certainly came through on his word to the Knicks on Wednesday night as he helped eliminate them from the playoffs by going 6 for his first 6 from the field on his way to 14 points. The Hawks will now take on the Sixers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals starting on Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia.

Onyeka Okongwu racked up 21 points (10-13 FG, 1-3 FT), 15 rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks, and one turnover in Sunday's victory against Houston.

Fantasy Impact: Okongwu filled in admirably for Clint Capela, establishing career-highs in points and rebounds. He was additionally uber-efficient from the field, knocking down 10-of-13 shots. He typically isn't able to produce much when Capela is active, but the Hawks clearly drafted someone with plenty of potential.

Lou Williams accounted for 16 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, five assists, and one turnover in Wednesday night's victory over the Suns.

Fantasy Impact: This was Williams' highest scoring effort since April 20th, when he recorded his only 20-point game as a Hawk this season. Atlanta had an impressive seven players score in double figures tonight, so it was very much a team effort in a massive win against a red-hot Suns team. Williams was coming off three straight single-digit scoring games, shooting an average of 15.8% from the field. He doesn't get much playing time either, so he's best left on the waiver wire.

Atlanta Hawks PG Kris Dunn (ankle) will return Monday vs the Pistons (Source: Mike Conti )

Fantasy Impact: Interim coach McMillan confirmed Dunn will play limited minutes in his season and Hawks debut Monday not the second night of a back-to-back. He'll likely compete with Brandon Goodwin and Skylar Mays for playing time as Trae Young (ankle) remains unavailable and Lou Williams (illness) was downgraded to out.

Category: Injury Updates

Brandon Goodwin notched 17 points (6-10 FG, 1-5 3PT, 4-4 FT), three boards, four assists, and two turnovers in Friday's victory against the Heat.

Fantasy Impact: Goodwin efficiently dropped 17 points in tonight's win over the Heat, with Trae Young and Clint Capela sidelined. He should be capable of consistently generating double-digit scoring outings while Young is likely out of action for the rest of the fantasy playoffs. Goodwin will have a date with Milwaukee on Sunday night.

Solomon Hill chipped in 18 points (6-11 FG, 6-8 3PT), five boards, one assist, and one block in Thursday's loss to Milwaukee.

Fantasy Impact: Hill efficiently fired in 6-of-8 shots from beyond the arc to produce a new season-high 18 points. Despite the impressive night, he should remain on the waiver wire.

Two-time NBA champion Rajon Rondo has been traded to the Clippers for Lou Williams, two second-round picks, and cash. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: So far this season, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George have been the primary ball handlers for the Clippers. This move opens up the playmaking ability of all other fantasy relevant Clippers, as Rondo's passing ability opens up the floor for others to make plays off the ball. Moving from Atlanta to the Clippers, Rondo's assist numbers should see a drastic increase playing alongside playmakers like Leonard and George, making Rondo an increasingly valuable fantasy asset.

Nathan Knight recorded 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 3PT, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist, one block, and two turnovers in Tuesday night's win versus Houston.

Fantasy Impact: Knight once again took advantage of the absences of Clint Capela and Onyeka Okongwu. While he couldn't crash the glass nearly as well, he shot a healthy 66.7% from the field to amass 15 points. Knight should be added in deeper leagues if Capela and Okongwu are sidelined for Thursday's contest against the Thunder.

Tony Snell provided 15 points (5-7 FG, 5-7 3PT), three rebounds, and five assists in Tuesday's win over the Rockets.

Fantasy Impact: 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.
