Hawks' Tyrese Martin: Assigned to G League
Atlanta assigned Martin to the G League's College Park Skyhawks on Tuesday, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.
Martin didn't appear in any games during his latest stint with the NBA squad. He figures to get extended run in the G League, where he's averaging 16.3 points and 8.0 rebounds in 29.1 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Bogdan Bogdanovic: Efficient off bench Monday
Bogdanovic ended Monday's 121-114 loss to the Thunder with 17 points (6-13 FG, 5-10 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal over 22 minutes.
Playing in only his second game since completing his recovery from offseason knee surgery and rejoining the lineup, Bogdanovic once again had his minutes capped, but he made the most of his court time with some eagle-eye shooting from beyond the arc. The Hawks' second unit has missed the veteran guard's perimeter game, but the team won't ramp him up too quickly. Look for Bogdanovic to see a bit more action in Wednesday's tile against the Knicks.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Clint Capela: Double-double against OKC
Capela finished with 14 points (7-10 FG), 16 rebounds and two blocks in 30 minutes during Monday's 121-114 loss to the Thunder.
It's Capela's 13th double-double of the season -- putting him just two behind league leaders Anthony Davis and Nikola Jokic -- and his fourth straight since returning from a brief two-game absence due to dental issues. Over his last 12 contests, the veteran center is averaging 13.5 points, 13.9 boards and 1.2 blocks while shooting 65.5 percent from the floor.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Trae Young: Big double-double in Monday's loss
Young registered 23 points (6-19 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 10-11 FT), three rebounds and 10 assists across 37 minutes during Monday's 121-114 loss to the Thunder.
After missing Friday's game due to a sore shoulder, Young returned to the court and picked up where he left off, recording his fourth straight double-double and 12th in 22 games. The offseason addition of Dejounte Murray hasn't taken away from Young's distribution duties, and the 24-year-old point guard remains on pace for better than nine dimes a game for a fourth straight season....

Hawks' Dejounte Murray: Pops for 24 against Thunder
Murray supplied 24 points (10-21 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-3 FT), six rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steals in 38 minutes during Monday's 121-114 loss to Oklahoma City.
The Hawks seemed to have the game well in hand when they took a 14-point lead in the third quarter, but another late swoon put them in the loss column. Murray appears to be coming out of his scoring funk, at least -- after producing more than 19 points only once over an eight-game stretch in the second half of November, the 26-year-old guard has dropped dropped 24 or more in three straight, averaging 28.3 points, 5.7 assists, 4.0 boards, 3.3 threes, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks during his resurgence....

Hawks' Jarrett Culver: Returns to bench role
Culver won't start Monday's game against the Thunder, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.
Culver drew a spot start Friday against Denver and played well, finishing with 10 points and seven boards. However, he'll return to his usual bench role Monday as the Hawks slowly return to full strength.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Bogdan Bogdanovic: Remains on minutes restriction
Coach Nate McMillan said Bogdanovic will remain on a minutes restriction during Monday's matchup against the Thunder, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Bogdanovic made his season debut Friday following a prolonged absence due to offseason knee surgery and struggled with his shot across 22 minutes. Given McMillan's comments, it's safe to assume he'll stick in the 20-25 minute range for at least one more game. Regardless, Bogdanovic can populate the box score quickly, so he doesn't need a full workload to record a solid fantasy output.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Justin Holiday: Now listed as available
Holiday (COVID-19 protocols) is now listed as available for Monday's matchup against the Thunder.
Holiday was previously listed as out for Monday's game, which would've marked a third straight absence due to COVID-19 protocols, but it appears he's now in line to suit up against the Thunder. Despite being listed as available, it's unclear if Holiday will crack the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Justin Holiday: Still out Monday
Holiday (COVID-19 protocols) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Oklahoma City, Lauren L. Williams of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Holiday remains in the league's health and safety protocols and will be unavailable for a third consecutive game. His next chance to suit up will be Wednesday against the Knicks.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Trent Forrest: Remains out Monday
Forrest (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup against the Thunder, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.
Forrest will miss a second straight game due to a concussion. In his absence, Aaron Holiday and Vit Krejci are candidates for backup minutes behind Trae Young, who's set to return following a one-game absence due to a shoulder injury.... See More ... See Less
Hawks' Trae Young: Not listed on injury report
Young (shoulder) isn't listed on the injury report for Monday's matchup against the Thunder, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.
Young sat out Friday's win over the Nuggets due to a shoulder injury, but it was revealed Sunday that the star guard was involved in a verbal altercation with coach Nate McMillan at shootaround Friday morning. On Sunday, McMillan described the incident as a "miscommunication" and noted that Young will not face any internal discipline. The relationship between Young and his head coach may be worth monitoring going forward, but all indications are that Young will be back in the lineup Monday night against OKC.... See More ...

Hawks' Trent Forrest: Enters concussion protocol
Forrest was placed in the NBA's concussion protocol and didn't practice Sunday, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.
Forrest sat out Friday's win over the Nuggets while being evaluated for a possible concussion, and his entry in the protocol would seem to suggest he's been diagnosed with the head injury. Though he hasn't officially been ruled out for Monday's game against the Thunder, Forrest's absence from practice Sunday suggests he's not going to be cleared to play versus Oklahoma City....

Hawks' Trae Young: Practices Sunday
Young (shoulder) practiced Sunday, Lauren L. Williams of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Young didn't suit up Friday due to a shoulder injury, but the issue appears minor. The point guard's return to practice Sunday suggests he'll be able to suit up Monday against Oklahoma City, but Atlanta's official injury report should provide further clarity on Young's status....

Hawks' Bogdan Bogdanovic: Struggles in season debut
Bogdanovic provided five points (2-9 FG, 1-6 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes during Friday's 117-109 victory over the Nuggets.
After a longer recovery period than expected, Bogdanovic made his return Friday. He struggled shooting the ball, and he also committed four turnovers. Still, the development is much-needed for the Hawks, who are expected to be without De'Andre Hunter (hip) for about a week and John Collins (ankle) for about two weeks. Bogdanovic should eventually settle into a high-minute sixth-man role. Last season with Atlanta, he averaged 15.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.1 steals in 29.3 minutes. The presence of Dejounte Murray could cut into Bogdanovic's usage a bit, but the latter should still be fantasy-viable in many formats.... See More ... See Less
