Atlanta Hawks Roster
- Eastern Southeast
- State Farm Arena
Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young will unquestionably need some support if the team hopes to make a run throughout the playoffs for years to come. During a recent interview with John, Hugh, and Abe Gordon of 92.9 Atlanta, general manager Travis Schlenk expressed the importance of upgrading the roster. With Delon Wright, Lou Williams, and Gorgui Dieng, among others, heading toward free agency, the Hawks may have some wiggle room to add some firepower. It also seems Schlenk hasn't ruled out the possibility of making a trade during the offseason. Young averaged 28.4 points while shooting a career-high 38.2% from deep during the 2021-22 campaign. Without a doubt, the 23-year-old is one of the most potent offensive options throughout the league. However, Young's shooting percentages need to continue to improve for managers in category formats to benefit fully from his talent on the court.
Atlanta Hawks center Clint Capela (knee) won't return to the playoff matchup against Miami on Tuesday night. After hyperextending his right knee during the play-in tournament, the big man recently returned to the lineup in Game 4. However, it appears he returned too soon, so his availability for Game 6 (if necessary) is now in jeopardy. Capella may also need to have the injury addressed during the offseason, which wouldn't be good news for a player who's battled various injuries throughout his career. Nonetheless, Onyeka Okongwu and John Collins will likely split time in the middle while Capella is out of the picture.
Atlanta Hawks center Clint Capela (knee) will play during Tuesday's Game 5 against the Miami Heat. He was listed as questionable coming into this game, but feels well enough to get on the court. Capela made his series debut during Game 4, but only scored two points in 21 minutes. The Hawks are hopeful to get more out of Capela during Tuesday's contest. He'll be a risky fantasy option since he didn't bring much to the table during his last game.
Atlanta Hawks guard Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's Game 5 matchup against the Miami Heat. He has been battling and playing through both knee and ankle injuries during this series. It has certainly impacted his performance as well. The Hawks will take the cautious approach here and let Bogdanovic rest. Danilo Gallinari, Kevin Huerter, and De'Andre Hunter will split up the extra playing time. Out of the three, Huerter might have the most upside in terms of fantasy value.
Atlanta Hawks guard Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Miami Heat. He struggled heavily during their last contest, so possibly his right knee soreness was holding him back. In fact, Bogdanovic hit only one of his six shots during their Game 4 loss. The expectation is that Bogdanovic is going to play through the pain. Otherwise, Kevin Huerter and De'Andre Hunter would likely see increased time on the court.
