Atlanta Hawks guard/forward Thab Sefolosha (groin) may return in time for Friday's game against the Miami Heat. What It Means: Sefolosha has been sidelined by a groin injury since January 27, though he did practice in full on Wednesday and looks to be very close to a return. His return to the lineup may bump Tim Hardaway Jr. back to the bench. Our models do account for Sefolosha playing on Thursday, and we project him for 7.2 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 25.2 minutes of action against Miami. Source: Rotoworld.com

Hawks' Thabo Sefolosha (groin) will miss eighth straight on Monday night

Atlanta Hawks guard/forward Thabo Sefolosha (groin) will not play on Monday versus the Portland Trail Blazers. What It Means: Sefolosha could play on Wednesday against the Los Angeles Clippers, but it would make the most sense to hold him out until after the All-Star break at this point. Tim Hardaway Jr. should continue to roll in another starting opportunity on Monday night. Our models expect THJ to record 18.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.9 3-pointers in 34.7 minutes versus Portland.

The Hawks Starting Front Court and Roster Decisions to Come

The Hawks Starting Front Court and Roster Decisions to Come

The Hawks current starting front court is made up of veteran players the youngest of whom, Dwight Howard (31 y, 62d), has played in the most games of the three by margins of 110 games (Paul Millsap) and 205 games (Thabo Sefolosha). There has been much trade speculation surrounding Millsap and as he is very likely to be heading into unrestricted free agency after this season (he has player option for next season that he is almost certain to decline). While the trade speculation regarding Sefolosha (also an unrestricted free agent after this season) has not gotten as much attention, it seems...

Thabo Sefolosha (groin) ruled out again for Hawks

Atlanta Hawks guard/forward Thabo Sefolosha (groin) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Denver Nuggets. What It Means: Sefolosha will miss a sixth straight game and remains unable to practice, so whoever is still holding on can feel free to cut loose at this point. Tim Hardaway Jr. will draw another start and makes for a solid DFS target in a plus matchup. He's averaging 22.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.7 3-pointers over the past three contests while connecting on 58.5 percent of his shots from the field numberFire's metrics project THJ...

Thabo Sefolosha (groin) questionable as Hawks prepare for Houston

Atlanta Hawks guard/forward Thabo Sefolosha (groin) is questionable to play against the Houston Rockets on Thursday. What It Means: If Sefolosha can't make it, look for Tim Hardaway Jr. to get the starting nod. This would make three straight misses for Sefolosha, and he doesn't need to be owned at this point. Our models don't expect Sefolosha to play on Thursday night, and we project Hardaway to record 15.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.2 3-pointers over 30.2 minutes in his place.

Atlanta Hawks guard/forward Thabo Sefolosha (groin) will not play against the Miami Heat on Wednesday night. What It Means: Tim Hardaway Jr. is expected to replace Sefolosha in the starting lineup for a second straight game. Kent Bazemore should also benefit, and both he and THJ carry sound value in standard formats. Hardaway is averaging 15.9 points, 3.9 assists, 2.9 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.7 3-pointers in 35.0 minutes per game in seven starts this season. His -1.0 nERD is third-worst among all Hawks players.

Thabo Sefolosha (groin) will be a game-time decision for Atlanta

Atlanta Hawks guard/forward Thabo Sefolosha (groin) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday night's game against the Miami Heat. What It Means: Sefolosha didn't play on Sunday, and he still hasn't gone through a practice since suffering the injury, so it looks like there's a pretty good chance he doesn't play tonight. If that is the case, look for Tim Hardaway Jr. to once again move into the starting lineup. If Sefolosha does suit up tonight, our models project him for 7.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 26.6 minutes of action. Source: Rotoworld.com
