  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Gets rotation spot in return

    Bufkin (toe) tallied three points (1-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds and one block across 17 minutes off the bench in Monday's 113-101 win over the Bulls.

    Suiting up for the first time since March 2 after recovering from a sprained left big toe, Bufkin supplanted Trent Forrest in the rotation as the Hawks' backup point guard and also saw some playing time in an off-ball role alongside Dejounte Murray. The rookie first-round pick could have the ability to pick up more minutes if the Hawks elect to deprioritize two-way player Vit Krejci on the wing, but if he sticks in his current backup role, Bufkin's fantasy upside will be fairly limited.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Set to return Monday

    Bufkin (toe) is available for Monday's game against the Bulls, Brad Rowland of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

    The rookie first-round pick had been sidelined since early March with a left big toe sprain, but after recently ditching his walking boot and resuming on-court work, he'll be ready to go Monday. With five other Hawks players out with injuries Monday, Bufkin could find himself in the rotation in his return to action.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Deemed questionable for Monday

    Bufkin (toe) is questionable for Monday's game against the Bulls, Brad Rowland of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

    Bufkin has missed the last 14 games due to a left big toe sprain, but he seems to be trending toward a return since he is listed as questionable rather than being immediately ruled out. Bufkin could find his way into the rotation should he suit up, due to the numerous injuries in Atlanta's backcourt.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Out again Wednesday

    Bufkin (toe) won't play in Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Downgraded to out

    Bufkin (toe) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Dealing with toe soreness

    Bufkin is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks due to left big toe soreness.

    With Trae Young (finger) sidelined, Bufkin has played double-digit minutes in four straight games, averaging 6.0 points, 3.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 16.3 minutes during that stretch. If he's sidelined Tuesday, Trent Forrest may see a few extra minutes off the bench.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Scores 12 points off bench Thursday

    Bufkin produced 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt), three rebounds and three assists in 19 minutes during Thursday's 124-97 loss to the Nets.

    Bufkin hasn't been a regular part of the Hawks' rotation this season, but the promising floor general had to see minutes off the bench in this one due to the team's lack of depth in the backcourt. His numbers were decent, but the only real reason why he logged minutes was that it was a blowout loss, and this was a good chance to see how he performed at the NBA level following several above-average displays in the G League. Bufkin may stay with Atlanta for a few more days, but he'll likey return to College Park, as he's spent most of the season with the Skyhawks.

    The rookie first-round pick hasn't been a regular part of the Hawks' rotation this season, but he could get some run Sunday against the Magic if Trae Young (finger) -- who is listed as questionable -- ends up being ruled out. Bufkin has been a high-level performer during his various stints in the G League this season, averaging 23.6 points, 5.9 assists, 5.4 rebounds, 2.6 three-pointers and 1.4 steals in 32.0 minutes per game over 14 appearances.

    Bufkin will be available for Saturday's game versus the Cavaliers. The rookie guard has made just two NBA appearances so far this season, but he's been excelling in the G League of late and could crack the rotation if Trae Young (illness) ends up missing a second straight contest.

  • Hawks' Kobe Bufkin: Cleared to play

    Bufkin (thumb) has been cleared to play in Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

    The Hawks announced Wednesday that Bufkin (thumb) has been cleared to return to full team practice, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports.
