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.
Feb 10 - 3:17 AM

Spencer Hawes was productive in his move to the starting unit, scoring 17 points on 7-of-16 shooting, to go with two 3-pointers, one rebound, one block and two turnovers over 35 minutes of action.

Hawes has the rare ability to offer points, 3-pointers, and blocks to a fantasy squad, and with Blake Griffin expected to be sidelined for at least the next 4-weeks, Hawes needs to be picked up in all standard leagues. Glen Davis also exited Sunday's game with back spasms, and if he's unable to go on Monday, Hawes will get all the run he can handle. Go grab him if he's still available in your league.
Feb 8 - 3:44 PM

Spencer Hawes will start against the Thunder on Sunday in place of Blake Griffin (elbow).

Hawes is in line for a huge boost in value with Blake Griffin (elbow) out indefinitely, and needs to be picked up in all standard leagues as he should see around 30 minutes of action for the foreseeable future. Hawes was averaging 6.1 points, 3.9 boards and 0.8 blocks in just 17 minutes per game so far this season, so expect to see a nice bump in production across the board.
Feb 8 - 11:57 AM

Coach Doc Rivers admitted that Spencer Hawes is struggling to adjust to his role of coming off the bench for the Clippers.

"He has to play better to play more," Coach Doc Rivers said before Saturday's win over the Spurs. "Minutes are earned, they're not just given out like cookies." Hawes is averaging just 17 minutes per game this season, and he was coming off two scoreless games prior to Saturday. He responded with an 11-point performance against the Spurs, but he is going to need several more games like this before he sees an increase in playing time. As of right now, Hawes isn't worth owning in almost any league.
Feb 1 - 9:29 AM

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.
Jan 18 - 2:08 AM

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.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 03:20:00 AM

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.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 08:54:00 PM

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.
