Top Hawks News

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Perfect performance off bench

    Okongwu finished with 17 points (7-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 20 minutes in Tuesday's 132-100 win over the Suns.

    In a game the Hawks dominated from start to finish, Okongwu's playing time didn't suffer like most of Atlanta's starters. While handling his usual second-unit role behind starting center Clint Capela, Okongwu made the most of his 20 minutes of court time, going perfect from the field for the second game in a row while chipping in in the two defensive categories. Though his role appears unlikely to grow, barring a Capela absence, Okongwu's averages of 9.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals over his last four games to go with elite efficiency are enough to make him useful in 12- or 14-team category leagues.

  • Hawks' Jalen Johnson: Crashes boards Wednesday

    Johnson registered six points (2-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt), 11 rebounds and one assist across 16 minutes during Wednesday's 132-100 victory over Phoenix.

    Johnson had played double-digit minutes just twice over his past six games coming into Wednesday, but he saw a little extra opportunity with the Hawks cruising to a blowout win. The second-year forward made the most of his playing time, corralling a career-high 11 rebounds -- all on the defensive end -- in just 16 minutes. Johnson's effort on the boards Wednesday was certainly impressive, but he hasn't played 20 minutes in a game since Dec. 30, so he remains a non-factor in fantasy.

  • Hawks' Dejounte Murray: Steady all-around effort Wednesday

    Murray posted 21 points (8-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-3 FT), eight assists and six rebounds across 30 minutes during Wednesday's 132-100 win over Phoenix.

    Murray paced Atlanta in scoring in the blowout win, finishing with 20-plus points for the ninth time in his past 10 games. The veteran guard rounded out his stat line with eight assists and six boards, though he failed to record any defensive stats. Over the aforementioned 10-game stretch, Murray has averaged 25.7 points, 6.2 dimes, 5.7 rebounds, 2.9 three-pointers and 1.3 steals per contest.

  • Hawks' Trae Young: Posts fifth straight double-double

    Young (ankle) registered 20 points (8-17 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 12 assists, one rebound and one steal across 27 minutes during Wednesday's 132-100 win over the Suns.

    Though he finished with his fewest points since he tallied 18 against Dallas on Jan. 18, Young's scoring wasn't needed on a night when Atlanta collectively shot 57.6 percent from the field and made 19 of 33 three-point attempts. The star point guard, who was returning from a one-game absence, played a season-low 27 minutes in the blowout victory, but he still managed to record his fifth consecutive double-double. Over that stretch, he's averaged 26.0 points, 11.6 assists, 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 triples and 0.4 steals per contest.

  • Hawks' Aaron Holiday: Shifts back to bench

    Holiday will return to the second unit for Wednesday's game against the Suns, Lauren L. Williams of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Holiday saw a spot start Monday in place of Trae Young (ankle), but with Young back in action he will rejoin the reserves. Holiday has not cleared 15 minutes of action since Jan. 14.

  • Hawks' Trae Young: Will play Wednesday

    Young (ankle) will play Wednesday against the Suns, Brad Rowland of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

    Young is back in action after a one-game stint on the sidelines, so he should return to his usual workload with the first unit, which will shift Aaron Holiday back to a reserve role. Expect a lower usage rate for John Collins and De'Andre Hunter, and fewer playmaking opportunities for Dejounte Murray.

  • Hawks' Trae Young: Probable Wednesday

    Young (ankle) is considered probable to rejoin the action Wednesday versus the Suns.

    Young should resume his duties as the starting point guard for the Hawks after sitting out Monday's game against Portland to tend to some ankle discomfort. The star point guard has topped 30 points in each of his last two appearances, and his return will likely bump Dejounte Murray -- who collected a career-high 40 points in Young's absence Monday -- back to a secondary scoring role.

  • Hawks' AJ Griffin: Goes 3-of-4 from deep

    Griffin had 13 points (4-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and one rebound across 21 minutes during Monday's 129-125 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    The first-round pick out of Duke isn't doing enough to warrant much fantasy attention, though it's encouraging that coach Nate McMillan is comfortable entrusting him with 17-to-22 minutes off the bench on most nights. In the month of January, Griffin is averaging 8.1 points on 57.7 percent shooting, including a red-hot 53.5 percent from downtown (2.9 3PA/G).

  • Hawks' Onyeka Okongwu: Playing second fiddle to Capela

    Okongwu finished Monday's 129-125 loss to the Trail Blazers with eight points (4-4 FG), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 19 minutes.

    In three appearances since returning from a one-game absence due to a hamstring issue, Okongwu is converting on 78.6 percent of his field-goal attempts while making an impact on the glass and in the defensive categories. Even so, Okongwu's run of solid performances off the bench doesn't look as though it'll earn him a larger share of playing time while starting center Clint Capela is healthy and playing effectively. In the last three games both big men have been available, Capela is averaging 28.3 minutes to Okongwu's 19.7.

  • Hawks' Clint Capela: Nabs fourth straight double-double

    Capela finished with 10 points (4-11 FG, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds and three assists in Monday's 129-125 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Though Capela came away with his fourth double-double in a row, the 4-for-11 showing from the field was disappointing for a player who has been converting at a 64.3 percent clip for the season. The inefficient showing can thus be viewed as an outlier for Capela, whose fantasy value appears to be on the upswing now that he's begun to wrangle a larger share of the center minutes away from backup Onyeka Okongwu. In the last three contests in which both big men have been available, Capela is averaging 28.3 minutes to Okongwu's 19.7.

  • Hawks' Bogdan Bogdanovic: Leads second unit in scoring

    Bogdanovic finished Monday's 129-125 loss to the Trail Blazers with 23 points (7-16 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 5-7 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and one steal across 32 minutes.

    While Trae Young (ankle) was sidelined Monday, Dejounte Murray (career-high 40 points, seven assists) stepped up as the Hawks' go-to player, while Bogdanovic moved into Murray's usual role as Atlanta's top secondary option on offense. Because Young isn't expected to be in store for a long-term absence, Bogdanovic's playing time and usage could take a dip as soon as Wednesday in Phoenix, but the excellent showing Monday is at least an encouraging sign for the 30-year-old after a recent string of underwhelming, inefficient performances.

  • Hawks' Dejounte Murray: Pops for career-high 40

    Murray finished with a career-high 40 points (13-26 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 9-9 FT) to go with eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals across 38 minutes in Monday's 129-125 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    While backcourt mate Trae Young (ankle) sat out Monday, Murray took on an elevated 33.1 percent usage rate, his highest mark since Dec. 2. He paired the uptick in creation and scoring opportunities with better-than-usual efficiency from the field, free-throw line and three-point range, resulting in him netting a new career-high total in points. Young's injury isn't believed to be a long-term concern, so Murray could settle back into a secondary role on offense for Atlanta as soon as Wednesday's game in Phoenix.

  • Hawks' Aaron Holiday: Starting Monday

    Holiday is starting Monday's contest against the Trail Blazers, Lauren L. Williams of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Holiday will slide into Atlanta's starting lineup with Trae Young ruled out due to an ankle injury. This will mark the UCLA product's fifth start of the season. Across his four previous starts, Holiday is averaging 5.5 points, 1.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.3 steals over 22.8 minutes per game.

  • Hawks' Trae Young: Ruled out Monday

    Young (ankle) is out for Monday's contest against the Trail Blazers, Sean Highkin of RoseGardenReport.com reports.

    Young will officially miss his sixth contest of the season as he tends to an ankle injury. Aaron Holiday figures to take the star point guard's spot in Atlanta's starting lineup. Young's next chance to return to suit up comes Wednesday against the Suns
