Atlanta Hawks

Eastern Southeast


Clint Capela contributed eight points, nine rebounds, four assists, and two blocks in 33 minutes on Wednesday. The Hawks beat the Pacers 114-111.

Fantasy Impact: After pulling down 39 rebounds over his last two games, Capela was only able to grab nine in this one. He also failed to reach double-digit points, so overall it was a quiet night for the big man, who's fourth in the league with 15 double-doubles this season. He has nights like this more often than fantasy owners would like, but he's still a top-10 center.

Kevin Huerter scored 19 points (8-11 FG, 3-4 3PT) in Wednesday's 114-111 win over the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: This was a solid bounce-back game for Huerter after he went 0-6 from three in the game prior. Still, the 19 points match his second-highest total all season. He's simply not a big enough part of this offense to be fantasy relevant in most formats.

John Collins had a strong defensive game with 4 blocked shots and a steal in Wednesday's 114-111 win over the Pacers. He also contributed 14 points (5-8 FG, 3-3 3PT, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, and two assists.

Fantasy Impact: I suppose Collins is still the second option in this Hawks offense, but it's really a committee behind Trae Young. Collins' 11.2 shot attempts and 16.5 points per game are both his lowest since his rookie season. He's still a top-15 forward but his upside is capped in this offense.

Trae Young made two late free throws to secure a 114-111 win over the Pacers on Wednesday. He finished with 33 points (13-27 FG, 3-10 3PT, 4-4 FT), to go along with 10 assists and eight rebounds.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn't the most efficient game for Young but his fantasy owners won't mind. Few players are more of a focal point of the team's offense than Young is for the Hawks, and that's not changing. He's locked in as a top-10 player overall.

Fantasy Impact: Reddish will not be available for the Hawks on Wednesday and will be day-to-day moving forward as he works his way back from a left wrist sprain.

Bogdan Bogdanovic was one of five Hawks in double figures in Wednesday's 110-99 win over the Celtics. He scored 12 points (4-12 FG, 4-10 3PT).

Fantasy Impact: He also added six assists to help his fantasy owners, and that's now two straight solid games for him, but he's still simply not a big enough part of this Hawks offense to offer any kind of consistency. There are likely more well-rounded pick ups to be had.

Fantasy Impact: Gallinari missed the Hawks season opener on Thursday and his status remains in question for Saturday. Atlanta will be in no rush to bring back Gallinari given how deep their roster is.

Fantasy Impact: Dunn headlines the package being sent to Boston, as he figures to be in a bench role behind guards Marcus Smart and Payton Pritchard.

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.

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.

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.
