Spencer Hawes (knee) is still out on Monday against the Spurs.
Hawes' knee problem has not been detailed in great length, but he's been out for almost two weeks with very few updates in between. He's not worth owning in fantasy leagues, anyway. DeAndre Jordan is the only center on the Clippers with fantasy value. Dec 22 - 12:31 PM

Spencer Hawes (knee) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Denver.

Hawes has been out of the lineup since Dec. 12, and he remains without an official timetable to return. As long as DeAndre Jordan is healthy, he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues.
Dec 19 - 2:20 PM

Spencer Hawes (knee) downplayed the seriousness of his injury to his left knee.

There had been rumors of a more serious nature to Hawes' injury as he's still without a timetable, but Hawes downplayed those reports are greatly exaggerated. "I'm not out for the season," he told reporters on Wednesday. While Hawes may not be out for the season, he's not going to help fantasy owners much and can safely be left on the waiver wire.
Dec 18 - 9:05 AM

Spencer Hawes (knee) will not play against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He is without a timetable and after suffering some bruising to his knee. Hawes can be cut in most formats.
Dec 17 - 8:59 PM

Spencer Hawes (knee) will not play on Monday against the Pistons.

Coach Doc Rivers said he did not know when Hawes would make it back. Hawes is just a backup to DeAndre Jordan with the occasional minutes at power forward, so his owners shouldn't be too attached to him.
Dec 15 - 9:59 PM

Spencer Hawes had an MRI on Saturday and it revealed no structural damage.

This is great news for the Clippers and coach Doc Rivers even said that Hawes could have played on Saturday if he needed him too. However, the Clippers are going to be cautious with him and they have not yet provided a timetable for his return. "I think it's still early," Hawes said. "We want to figure out exactly what the issue is and try to go forward from there." This is something that we will monitor very closely, and we will provide an update to his status as needed. If he misses any more time, Glen Davis and Hedo Turkoglu will receive a slight boost.
Dec 14 - 9:23 AM

Spencer Hawes (knee) will not play on Saturday against the Bucks.

There was almost no way he was going to play because his twisted knee caused some bruising. Expect to see Hedo Turkoglu and Glen Davis to get more minutes. Hawes doesn't really have enough upside to stash.
Dec 13 - 6:05 PM

Spencer Hawes (knee) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Bucks.

X-Rays were negative but the Clippers are likely going to be caution with him until he is close to 100 percent. Glen Davis and Hedo Turkoglu will both see extra minutes if Hawes sits, but not enough to matter in most leagues.
Dec 13 - 12:44 PM

X-rays were negative on Spencer Hawes' left leg and he will be re-evaluated on Saturday.

He twisted his knee badly and the Clippers are likely going to give him an MRI. Hawes was ruled out quickly and is likely going to miss time. Glen Davis and Hedo Turkoglu will get more run, but are not options in most leagues.
Dec 12 - 10:32 PM

Spencer Hawes suffered a bruised left knee on Friday and will not return.

The severity is not yet known and he is getting X-rays. Hawes was playing well in his 17.5 minutes per game on the season and now the Clippers will likely lean on Glen Davis a bit more. Matt Barnes could get minutes at stretch four on occasion. Hawes finished with one point and one block in six minutes.
Dec 12 - 7:53 PM

Spencer Hawes hit four 3-pointers in 20 minutes off the bench during Monday's blowout win, finishing with 14 points, four rebounds, two assists and one block.

Hawes has been limited by a foot injury and needs an injury in front of him to truly have any difference-making fantasy value. But as you can see, he has the chops to make it work if given the opportunity.
Dec 2 - 1:32 AM

Spencer Hawes shot just 1-of-5 from the field on Wednesday to finish a win vs. the Pistons with four points, eight rebounds, two assists and one steal in 18 minutes.

Hawes came in shooting a career-worst 41.1 percent from the field, including 30.3 percent from downtown. The per-minute efficiency he displayed last season has evaporated in a reserve role under Doc Rivers, and there's no use hanging onto him in fantasy leagues while he's struggling in limited minutes.
Nov 26 - 10:51 PM

Spencer Hawes practiced on Friday and is not on the injury report.

He has a foot issue and it's expected to keep his minutes down a bit. Hawes has played well at both big-man spots, but he's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 14 - 4:38 PM

Spencer Hawes (foot) played 14 minutes against the Spurs on Monday, scoring nine points on 4-of-6 shooting with two rebounds, one assist and one block.

Owners will want to see if Hawes can get healthy and change his fortunes down the road, but for now he's best left on the wire while he continues to struggle.
Nov 11 - 1:53 AM

Spencer Hawes (foot) is still on a minutes limit against the Spurs on Monday.

He looks like he's going to play, but he's not going to be a fantasy option right now. Glen Davis may pick up some of Hawes' playing time for now.
