Spencer Hawes finished Sunday's game with 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting, adding two 3-pointers and one rebound without any blocks in 16 minutes.
This was Hawes' first double-digit scoring game in January. The Clippers lavished a four-year, $22.7 million deal on him this summer, but he's averaging just 17.0 minutes per game and remains a waiver-wire fixture as long as DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin are healthy. Jan 25 - 9:49 PM

Spencer Hawes played 17 minutes against the Kings on Saturday with four points, three rebounds, one assist, one block and two fouls.

He was getting more minutes at power forward earlier this season, but he's almost been played exclusively at center. Hawes won't have fantasy value while DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin are healthy.

Spencer Hawes (knee) returned to action on Monday, playing 13 minutes with two points, three rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

Hawes showed some of his fantasy appeal with good per-minute numbers, but he needs to both enhance his role and probably get a little injury help to be a factor in standard leagues.

Spencer Hawes (knee) will play on Monday night against the Jazz.

Chances are his minutes are going to be held in check since he's been out for a few weeks. Hawes can be left on the wire in most leagues while DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin are healthy.

Spencer Hawes (knee) said he expects to play on Monday night against the Jazz.

He missed nine games with a knee sprain and will likely have his minutes in check. Hawes is playing 17 minutes per game behind DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin, but doesn't have much fantasy value. Glen Davis may lose a few minutes.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 02:29:00 PM

Spencer Hawes (knee) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

If Hawes is able to go he will play limited minutes off the bench behind DeAndre Jordan, and he won't be worth using in most leagues.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 05:55:00 PM

Spencer Hawes (knee) will not play on Saturday vs. the Raptors.

He is said to be nearing a return, but only owners in deep leagues should consider adding him for the time being. Hawes would need an injury to Blake Griffin or DeAndre Jordan before we could recommend an add, so you can safely leave him on the wire. Glen Davis will see a few extra minutes Saturday, but is not a fantasy option by any means.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 01:54:00 PM

Spencer Hawes (knee) has been upgraded to doubtful for Saturday's game.

He wasn't expected to be ready in time for Saturday's game, so even if he doesn't play it is a great sign that he is getting closer. However, Hawes is still only an asset in deeper leagues, and it will remain that way unless Blake Griffin or DeAndre Jordan suffers an injury. If Hawes sits this one, Glen Davis may see a few extra minutes in the rotation.

Spencer Hawes will not play on Thursday due to a lingering knee injury.

That just means more run for starter DeAndre Jordan, while Hawes remains day-to-day with the injury.
Thu, Dec 25, 2014 08:51:00 PM

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.
Mon, Dec 22, 2014 12:31:00 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.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 02:20:00 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.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 09:05:00 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.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 08:59:00 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.
Mon, Dec 15, 2014 09:59:00 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.
