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.
Nov 10 - 9:21 PM

Spencer Hawes (foot) said he's dealing with pain in his foot.

"It’s injured, it’s hopefully getting better and the plan is kind of deal with it now and kind of put it behind for the rest of the season," Hawes said. "It kind of started coming on three weeks or so ago, then getting a little better, little worse." That sounds like a guy who is going to miss some games, so his owners should look to bench him. Glen Davis may pick up some minutes, but he's still not a fantasy option.
Nov 10 - 4:12 PM

Spencer Hawes suffered a left foot strain against the Blazers on Saturday and is probable to play on Monday.

He's been a nice fit at both the center and power forward spots. Considering he just has a strain, he probably won't be out for very long despite being in a walking boot. Glen Davis will get some extra run, but is not a fantasy option in most leagues. Hawes scored one point with three rebounds and one block in 12 minutes on Saturday.
Nov 8 - 6:28 PM

Spencer Hawes hit rock bottom in Monday's win, playing just 15 minutes with zero points, two rebounds, one assist and one block.

Hawes attempted just one shot and as far as we can tell he's just not a part of the gameplan yet. We know he can fill it up when given the minutes, but until we see signs of it he can stay on the wire in 12-team leagues.
Nov 4 - 1:50 AM

Spencer Hawes logged 23 minutes off the bench on Sunday, making 5-of-10 field goals and 6-of-6 free throws to finish with a season-high 17 points.

He hit one 3-pointer and chipped in four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block for what was easily his best game of the season. Hawes is a reliable fantasy player when getting 25+ minutes per game, but he'd averaged just 16.5 minutes in L.A.'s first two games so owners in 12-team leagues should be able to find better options.
Nov 2 - 7:21 PM

Spencer Hawes played just 14 minutes off the bench on Friday, finishing with nine points on 3-of-5 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds and a steal.

That's great per-minute production but Hawes' playing time this year is officially a concern. If he's not getting a consistent 20-plus minutes per game, he'll probably be unusable in standard leagues.
Nov 1 - 1:54 AM

Spencer Hawes played 19 minutes off the bench on Thursday with four points, four rebounds, one assist and one block.

He did get some minutes at power forward, but mostly backed up DeAndre Jordan. Hawes will have a lot of weak games, so his owners might want to shoot for a higher upside, especially considering how durable Blake and DJ are.
Oct 31 - 2:34 AM

Spencer Hawes started for DeAndre Jordan (rest) on Wednesday and had eight points, 10 rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes.

As long as Jordan is healthy, Hawes is going to struggle to see enough minutes to make much of a fantasy dent.
Oct 23 - 1:44 AM

Spencer Hawes had 14 points and seven rebounds in a start at PF on Tuesday, with Blake Griffin resting as a precaution.

Hawes chipped in two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in just 28 minutes, highlighting his unique skill-set for a seven-footer. He was a top-50 player in just 31 minutes last season, and shouldn't see fewer than 25 per game backing up Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, so don't be afraid to grab him in the final rounds.
Oct 22 - 1:29 AM

Spencer Hawes scored 24 points in 23 minutes in Friday's exhibition win, hitting 9-of-15 shots (including three treys) with six rebounds, one steal and one block.

DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin combined to play 70 minutes and this illustrates how Hawes has a legit chance to help fantasy squads this year. Hawes will be held back by lower field goal percentage because of all those 3-point attempts, and his defensive stats are nothing to write home about, but all told he's a safe and solid pick in the late rounds of a standard draft.
Oct 18 - 2:31 AM

Spencer Hawes played 23 minutes off the bench against the Blazers on Sunday with 15 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He looks to be penciled in for minutes in the mid 20s with his new team, which should allow him to produce some decent fantasy stats due to his contributions in treys and blocks. Hawes may get some added run in the fourth quarter because DeAndre Jordan can't make free throws. Although, DJ's best quarter for free throws last season was the fourth.
Oct 13 - 9:30 AM

Spencer Hawes made his Clippers debut on Tuesday with nine points, eight rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes off the bench.

He also committed five turnovers and he'll need some time to adjust to a reserve role under Doc Rivers, behind DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin. In spite of his backup role, Hawes' 3-point shooting, shot-blocking and rebounding combine with decent percentages and low turnovers to make him a borderline option in standard leagues.
Oct 8 - 2:24 AM

Coach Doc Rivers said he's talked about playing Spencer Hawes, DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin together in limited situations.

It would be a very strange move and it's still doubtful to happen unless the wings get in foul trouble. Hawes will be a backup and is unlikely to have more than late-round fantasy value in standard leagues.
