Mike Budenholzer said he likes what Miles Plumlee has been giving him as Atlanta's starting center.

"I will say that I like Miles starting. I like his size, his physicality, the things he’s been doing. I’m happy with Miles." It doesn't sound like he plans on replacing Plumlee with Dewayne Dedmon in the starting five anytime soon, but that doesn't make Plumlee a fantasy asset. As a starter this season, he's produced meager averages of 5.5 points, 4.5 boards and not much else.
Jan 14 - 4:59 PM

Miles Plumlee started again on Sunday, posting six points on 3-of-3 shooting, four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 25 minutes.

It was reported on Dec. 27 that the Hawks hoped to have Dewayne Dedmon (leg) back in 10-14 days, but we're on Day 11 and have yet to hear about him practicing. Even as the default starting center, though, Plumlee has unimpressive averages of 5.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.6 blocks. If those numbers wouldn't help you, continue to ignore him.

Miles Plumlee score two points with one rebound, one assist and one block in 19 minutes against the Thunder on Friday.

Just start John Collins already.

Miles Plumlee will remain in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Miami.

Head coach Mike Budehenholzer said that Plumlee will be holding down the starting five spot until Dewayne Dedmon (leg) can get back to the court, although that means very little in fantasy hoops. Through seven starts this season, Plumlee has only managed to compile averages of 4.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and not much else in 18.5 minutes per contest.

Miles Plumlee didn't attempt a shot, had just three rebounds and a steal, and had a +/- of -19 against Andre Drummond on Thursday.

The stat means that the Hawks were outscored by 19 points when Plumlee was on the floor, and while the Hawks started him to try to slow down Drummond (it didn't work), Tyler Cavanaugh might be a better option at center for Atlanta until Dewayne Dedmon is back in action. Cavanaugh played just eight minutes and had nine points, two rebounds and two 3-pointers in the loss.

Tyler Cavanaugh will replace Miles Plumlee in the Hawks starting lineup on Tuesday vs. the Cavs.

Plumlee averaged 5.4 points and 5.2 rebounds in 17.1 minutes in the five games he started for Atlanta. He'll log even fewer minutes now that he's coming off the bench.

Miles Plumlee scored three points with three rebounds, one assist and two steals in 16 minutes against Magic on Saturday.

The steals saved his line from being a big flop, but obviously Plumlee's time is running out. Hopefully, John Collins (shoulder) can make it back before next weekend.

Miles Plumlee came off the bench after halftime on Wednesday, posting eight points on 4-of-6 shooting with four rebounds in 13 minutes.

Tyler Cavanaugh overtook Plumlee as a starter tonight, after helping the Hawks earn a 16-point advantage in the third quarter. Plumlee didn't do much to boost his stock as a fill-in starter, and he can be left on the wire in 12-team leagues even with John Collins and Dewayne Dedmon injured.

A marijuana possession charge against Miles Plumlee has been dismissed and he will face no disciplinary actions from the NBA.

Plumlee was arrested in New York back in August on a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge with two other people, but the misdemeanor charge didn't hold up in court. As for fantasy hoops, Plumlee has emerged as the defacto starter in Atlanta with all the other bigs injured, but he hasn't done much with the increased opportunity, averaging just 3.5 points, 3.8 boards and 2.0 turnovers in 20.5 minutes per game.

Miles Plumlee started at center again on Monday but missed all four of his shots, picked up three early fouls and committed three turnovers in his 22 minutes of a blowout loss to the Nets.

He failed to score, but didn't manage to grab seven boards and two steals. He's nothing more than a punt play in DFS, but as we saw tonight, that strategy may not be the best one to deploy, either.

Miles Plumlee will draw another start on Monday vs. the Nets.

The Hawks will roll with the same starting five as Saturday, so Plumlee will join Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore, Taurean Prince and Ersan Ilyasova. The Hawks are very thin up front with Dewayne Dedmon (leg), John Collins (shoulder) and Mike Muscala (ankle) out and this a favorable matchup against Brooklyn, so Plumlee is worth a look if you're desperate for a big. He had six points with seven rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 19 minutes on Saturday.

Miles Plumlee made his first start of the season against the Nets on Saturday, scoring six points with seven rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 19 minutes.

The Hawks are almost out of centers with Tyler Cavanaugh and small-ball fives as the only other options. Plumlee may have a shot at minutes in the 20s, and hey maybe coach Mike Budenholzer can get him going like he did with Dewayne Dedmon (leg) minus the triples. Encouraging game aside, Plumlee is more of a add at center in deeper leagues.

Miles Plumlee and Ersan Ilyasova will start against the Nets on Saturday.

The Hawks are almost out of options at center and they'll have to go with Plumlee after losing John Collins (shoulder) and Dewayne Dedmon for at least the next two weeks. He's not really a reliable option unless you're in a a deep league.

Miles Plumlee (quad) has been recalled from the G-League.

Plumlee has yet to take the court this season as he's been rehabbing a right quad injury, but he could be making his season debut on Monday against the Spurs after getting in two games with Atlanta's G-League affiliate. Still, he won't be earning enough minutes to matter anywhere while the Hawks are at full strength.
