Pero Antic (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Bucks.

He was actually considered probable for Tuesday's contest, but he ended up sitting this one out. However, even if Antic is cleared to play on Friday, he doesn't have a large enough role to matter in most leagues. You can leave him on the wire with confidence.
Dec 24 - 12:18 AM

Pero Antic (sprained right ankle) is probable to play against the Clippers on Tuesday.

He played his normal allotment of 16 minutes per game on Monday and he might have suffered the injury late in the win. Antic has been disappointing this season and has made just 40.2 percent from the field, so he's clearly not a fantasy option.
Dec 23 - 1:07 PM

Pero Antic (illness) will be active for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.

He has missed the past three games so the illness must have been pretty serious. However, Antic is said to be doing better and should return to his normal role off of the bench. He has averaged just 16.8 minutes per game this season, so he can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Dec 17 - 9:29 AM

Pero Antic (illness) will be activated for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavs.

Antic has a very limited role with the Hawks this season, and is currently averaging just 5.3 points and 2.6 rebounds per game. He can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Dec 16 - 4:40 PM

Pero Antic (illness) returned to Hawks practice on Tuesday and will likely be upgraded to probable for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.

Antic has missed three games with the flu, but it sounds like he's getting closer to a return. The 32-year-old is only averaging 5.3 points and 2.6 boards on the season, however, so he can be ignored outside the very deepest of fantasy leagues.
Dec 16 - 1:33 PM

Pero Antic (illness) will not play on Monday against the Bulls.

It's his third game out with the flu, but the Hawks do not need him anyway. Antic barely had any value last season even with the Hawks decimated by injuries, so there's little incentive to owning him in deep leagues.
Dec 15 - 6:45 PM

Pero Antic (illness) is at shootaround on Monday, and he will be a game-time decision against the Bulls.

Antic missed Friday and Saturday with an illness, but it appears he's good to go after missing the last couple of games.
Dec 15 - 11:05 AM

Pero Antic (illness) is inactive for Saturday's game vs. the Magic.

He also missed Friday's game so we could see this one coming. Antic plays limited minutes off of the bench so his absence won't have a significant effect on the rotation. Mike Muscala, Mike Scott, and Elton Brand all figure to see more minutes but none of them are fantasy options in most leagues.
Dec 13 - 7:32 PM

Pero Antic (illness) will not play against the Magic on Friday.

He's only playing minutes in the teens and made just 37.1 percent from the field on the season anyway, so the Hawks won't miss him. Mike Muscala has stepped it up and figures to get in the rotation again tonight even with Mike Scott returning from an illness. Muscala is not a fantasy option.
Dec 12 - 5:54 PM

Pero Antic (flu-like symptoms) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Magic.

As long as Paul Millsap and Al Horford are healthy, Antic shouldn't be owned in most leagues. Elton Brand and Mike Muscala will pick up most of Antic's reserve minutes, but neither guy is worth a spot-start.
Dec 12 - 1:02 PM

Pero Antic (broken nose) scored nine points with one 3-pointer, three rebounds and one steal in 11 minutes during his return to action on Wednesday.

Antic wore a protective mask which he admitted was uncomfortable, but he still drained 3-of-5 field goals in the Hawks' road win. The return of Al Horford has erased Antic's scanty fantasy potential.
Oct 15 - 12:56 PM

Pero Antic (broken nose) has been ruled out of Saturday's preseason game vs. the Grizzlies.

Antic was only able to participate in some shooting drills during Friday's practice, but coach Mike Budenholzer expects him to begin some contact work by Monday. With Al Horford (pectoral) expected to be ready for opening night, Antic will play a very limited role off the bench, and isn't going to be worth drafting in standard leagues.
Oct 10 - 2:43 PM

Pero Antic suffered a broken nose at practice on Thursday and will miss Monday's preseason opener.

He had surgery and he should be able to resume basketball activities in the upcoming week. Antic was a solid stretch five for the Hawks while they were in desperation mode, but they are probably hoping they won't have to use him this season.
Oct 4 - 3:06 PM

The Hawks will not waive Pero Antic and his $1.25 million contract is now guaranteed.

He's been a nice stretch five for the Hawks, but he'll likely lose a lot of minutes now that Al Horford is healthy. Antic is basically just a tall shooter and he'll need some help to get minutes.
