Atlanta Hawks forward Taurean Prince will start on Sunday against the Brooklyn Nets. What It Means: Thabo Sefolosha is ruled out with a groin injury and with Kent Bazemore out still, Prince could be looking at heavy minutes. Tim Hardaway Jr. also should play minutes well into the 30s on Sunday in a good matchup. Our models project Prince for 10.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.2 blocks over 30.0 minutes on Sunday Source: Rotoworld.com

Suns vs. Hawks preview: Can Atlanta right the ship against Phoenix?

Tuesday evening brings another opportunity for the Hawks to stop the bleeding. The Atlanta Hawks are hemorrhaging at the moment and Tuesday evening provides an opportunity to right the ship.

It would be fair to point out that this same Hawks group lost a 15-point decision at home to the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday afternoon. In the same breath, the current collection for the Nets is probably better than the available talent...

Hawks put Hardaway Jr. in first unit, send Thabo Sefolosha to bench

Atlanta Hawks shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr. will start and Thabo Sefolosha will come off the bench against the Raptors on Friday. What It Means: Sefolosha is being punished for being late to the pregame walkthrough. It's only a one-game thing, but Hardaway is still worth owning in most formats and could be a nice DFS play with the extra opportunity. numberFire's metrics project Hardaway to turn in 17.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.5 3-pointers.

Why bringing Tim Hardaway Jr off the bench makes sense

The Atlanta Hawks made a lineup change on Monday. Was it the correct one? The Atlanta Hawks made a lineup change prior to Monday’s big win over the Boston Celtics. With Thabo Sefolosha back in full health, Mike Budenholzer elected to return him to the starting lineup in place of Tim Hardaway Jr. The immediate results were good, as Atlanta turned in one of its most spirited performances in some time. However, is it the right move from a long term standpoint? By any measure, Hardaway’s emergence has been one of the biggest stories of the season for the Hawks. He is...
