Spencer Hawes has been putting in extra hours recently to work on his shot with shooting coach Bob Thate.
Hawes is currently shooting a career-worst 39.7 percent from the field and 61.7 percent from the charity stripe, to go with unimpressive averages of 6.2 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. It's nice to know that he's working to improve his game, but playing in a reserve role behind DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin makes him a non-option in all leagues. Mar 27 - 10:46 AM

Spencer Hawes did not attempt any shots or free throws in 11 minutes off the Clippers' bench on Sunday.

Hawes is being paid $5.3 million this season, with escalating guaranteed money through 2016-17, but he's currently being outplayed by Big Baby Davis (five points, four boards in 11 minutes). Fantasy owners should give Hawes a wide berth now that Blake Griffin is healthy.
Mar 22 - 6:21 PM

Spencer Hawes logged just three minutes in his return to the bench on Sunday, where he handed out two assists, grabbed one rebound, and missed his only shot attempt.

Blake Griffin's return to action predictably returned Hawes to being a non-factor in the Clippers rotation, so he can be cut in nearly all leagues.
Mar 15 - 7:47 PM

With Blake Griffin back in action and starting, Spencer Hawes will return to the bench for Sunday's game vs. Houston.

Griffin will not have a minutes limit tonight, so Hawes will return to being a negligible option in nearly all leagues with the demotion to the second unit. He's averaging a meager 6.1 points and 3.9 rebounds per game on 42.4 percent shooting as a reserve for the Clippers, so owners in standard leagues shouldn't hesitate in returning Hawes to the wire.

Head coach Doc Rivers still believes that Spencer Hawes will turn things around soon.

"It doesn’t matter if it’s late in the year," Rivers said. "I’ve seen guys have horrible regular seasons and then break out in the playoffs. You don’t know where it’s coming, but we still believe in him just like the other 20 teams that wanted to sign him in the league. It’s there and we have to get it out." Hawes is on track for his worst statistical season since his rookie year, and he hasn't been much better since joining the starting lineup for the injured Blake Griffin (elbow). With Griffin eyeing a return on Sunday, Hawes' owners need to move on pretty quickly.
Mar 14 - 9:42 AM

Spencer Hawes played 18 minutes against the Mavs on Friday with four points, three rebounds, five assists and no turnovers on 2-of-8 from the field.

The probability of Blake Griffin (elbow) suiting up for Sunday is growing by the day, so it's time to cut Hawes in basically all leagues. The Clippers overpaid for Hawes in the offseason in case Blake or DeAndre Jordan were hurt, but he let them down. Still, the Clippers won a lot of games.
Mar 14 - 12:13 AM

Spencer Hawes scored five points on 2-of-6 shooting (including a three) with one rebound, three assists and one steal in 23 minutes on Monday against the Wolves.

Hawes just doesn't fit in this offense and he looks mostly terrible when on the floor. With Blake Griffin (elbow) returning as soon as Sunday, there's no reason for owners to keep banging their heads against the walls.
Mar 10 - 2:05 AM

Spencer Hawes kept up his garbage play on Sunday, hitting just 2-of-6 of his shots for four points, to go with five rebounds, two assists and a block over 19 minutes of action.

Hawes is starting for the Clippers, but he hasn't been able to capitalize on that opportunity, averaging just 9.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.5 blocks and 1.1 three-pointers per game on 38.8 percent shooting with the starting unit. He's well off the standard league radar, and he's barely clinging to value in deep leagues. He'll be a non-option when Blake Griffin (elbow) eventually returns, so if there's someone sitting on your waiver wire with more upside, we can't argue with dropping Hawes.
Mar 8 - 6:40 PM

Spencer Hawes continued to squander his opportunity with Blake Griffin (elbow) out, scoring eight points on 3-of-12 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds and two blocks in 23 minutes on Monday against the Wolves.

Griffin could return as soon as Sunday and Hawes hasn't given owners any reason to plan long-term here. If you're relying on him in a deep league feel free to move on for a hot free agent.
Mar 2 - 11:46 PM

Spencer Hawes finally mustered up a productive line on Sunday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting, to go with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, three blocks and one turnover through 23 minutes of action.

This is the type of lines we were hoping for when Blake Griffin (elbow) initially went down, and hopefully Hawes can keep it up with a favorable matchup against Minnesota on Monday. If Hawes was recently dropped in your league, he's worth a look. However, with Griffin getting closer to making a return to the lineup, Hawes' value is going to be short-lived.
Mar 1 - 5:19 PM

Spencer Hawes made 1-of-9 from the field for seven points with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

The usage and minutes weren't a problem, but Hawes just couldn't make shots. He is being counted on quite a bit, but there's no need to add him until his game starts to click. Plus, Blake Griffin will be back next month.
Feb 26 - 2:31 AM

Spencer Hawes saw 32 minutes on Monday against the Grizzlies, scoring nine points on 4-of-12 shooting (including a three) with one rebound, two assists and three blocks.

We don't know if Hawes' injuries are catching up to him or if he simply sucks now, but he just hasn't clicked in L.A. and he's not exactly making the most of Blake Griffin's absence. He's worth owning in the hopes his fantasy friendly game can start to take off, but not at the expense of a free agent with long-term prospects.
Feb 24 - 1:41 AM

Spencer Hawes played 33 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday with seven points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

After only logging 16.5 minutes per game in his previous two, Hawes saw his minutes rise tonight. He should have some decent fantasy value in the next month or so, but chances are he was cut for a higher-upside player who gained value today, which makes sense.
Feb 20 - 2:14 AM

Spencer Hawes played just 19 minutes and had 12 points and three rebounds in just 19 minutes on Wednesday.

DeAndre Jordan has been going crazy for the Clippers and Hawes just hasn't been needed much over the last two games. He's still worth owning and with Griffin expected to miss a few more weeks after elbow surgery, Hawes could easily come out after the break and go on a hot run.
Feb 12 - 1:46 AM

Spencer Hawes played just 14 minutes in Monday's win over the Mavs, finishing with four points, one rebound and one assist.

Tyson Chandler was knocked out of the game early and Doc Rivers had no need to go big. He should be a lot better the next time out, though there are a number of DFS owners that might be printing up some personalized paper products.
