Pero Antic started against the Wizards on Saturday and looked awful, finishing with one point, one rebound and four fouls in 15 minutes.
Yikes. He was dominated on the glass and the Wizards just pushed him around on defense. The Hawks staring five is much better as a unit, so messing with that group is going to result some bad outcomes. Antic can be ignored in most formats. May 9 - 7:55 PM

Pero Antic will start against the Wizards on Saturday night.

The Hawks may want to space the floor to allow more room for Al Horford to operate. Paul Millsap is still going to come off the bench and Antic's usage and rebounding rates are not good, so he's not someone fantasy owners should use. Mike Scott and Mike Muscala would also get more run. In most cases, fantasy owners will want to avoid Hawks big men outside of Horford.

Pero Antic (illness) did not practice on Tuesday, and he is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Chicago.

If Antic is unable to go, expect Elton Brand and Mike Muscala to pick up most of his reserve minutes. Muscala would be the guy to target in daily leagues, although after failing to do much of anything in his previous two outings, he remains a risky option.

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

He's sick and should be considered questionable to play in Chicago on Wednesday. Elton Brand, Mike Muscala and Mike Scott should get a couple extra minutes.
Apr 13 - 6:48 PM

Pero Antic played 13 minutes on Friday after being questionable due to the police action taken against he and Thabo Sefolosha early Wednesday morning.

Antic scored five points with two rebounds and one assist. As more tape from the incident gets released, we'd expect this story to grow nationally and the Hawks will do whatever it takes to keep it from being a distraction.
Apr 10 - 11:55 PM

Pero Antic said that he will play Friday vs. the Hornets.

Antic addressed the media on Friday regarding his arrest that took place early Wednesday morning, and there appears to be some contradictions between what the NYPD is alledging, and what can be seen in a video that is circulating around the Internet. This is going to develop into a very big story, and we'll be providing updates as they become available. On the basketball side of things, it would appear that Antic will be available for Friday's game, although he's not going to get enough minutes to matter in most leagues.
Apr 10 - 1:15 PM

Pero Antic will not play against the Nets on Wednesday.

The Hawks have released a statement that they're aware of Antic's arrest and they may keep him out of the lineup until they gather more information. Antic and Thabo Sefolosha said they will contest the charges. Mike Muscala and Elton Brand will get more playing time.
Apr 8 - 5:51 PM

Pero Antic allegedly grabbed an officer while Thabo Sefolosha was being arrested on Wednesday.

Folks should let the legal process play out before making any assessments about the incident itself, and we'll bring you updates as they come.
Apr 8 - 2:24 PM

Pero Antic was arrested at a New York nightclub on Wednesday for reportedly preventing police from setting up a crime scene.

Thabo Sefolosha was also arrested, and it's possible that both players could face a suspension from the NBA or from the Hawks. Atlanta is sitting comfortably atop of the Eastern Conference, so it's a shame that they will have to deal with this distraction. We will let you know more as soon as possible. In case you missed it, Chris Copeland of the Pacers was stabbed by a man wielding a knife which was why the police showed up in the first place. Copeland is in stable condition.
Apr 8 - 9:33 AM

Pero Antic (stiff neck) may not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Heat.

If Antic is unable to go on Friday, look for Elton Brand and Mike Muscala to pick up most of his reserve minutes, although neither of those guys can be relied upon to produce in most leagues.
Mar 27 - 1:27 PM

Pero Antic scored a career-high 22 points on Friday, hitting 6-of-9 shots (including four threes) with three rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes off the bench.

Antic probably has more value helping his girlfriend Chloe and the associates at CTU chase down supervillains than he does in most fantasy leagues.
Mar 21 - 1:58 AM

Pero Antic made little impact in 24 minutes as a fill-in starter vs. the Lakers, scoring only three points on 1-of-3 FGs and 1-of-4 FTs.

He did grab six rebounds while adding two assists and a steal, but there's simply no upside for Antic. He'll head back to the bench on Monday with Paul Millsap returning from his precautionary one-game absence.
Mar 16 - 12:17 AM

Hawks C Pero Antic hopes to re-sign with Atlanta this summer.

"I love it [in Atlanta]," Antic said. "I couldn’t be happier ... The coaching staff, to be so similar to Europe, to be so understanding of the players, rarely you can find that." Antic provides valuable spacing with his 3-point range and coach Mike Budenholzer said he's "a good part of [the Hawks'] core," but he's a non-factor in fantasy leagues with averages of 5.4 points and 2.9 rebounds per game.
Mar 12 - 10:19 AM

Pero Antic missed all five of his shots and finished with six points and three rebounds in Wednesday's ugly loss to the Nuggets.

Antic missed a few games with an ankle injury and did nothing tonight. He'll have an occasional eye-opening line off the Hawks bench the rest of the way, but is only worth using if Al Horford is confirmed to be missing games, and that's not the case right now.
Mar 12 - 2:56 AM

Pero Antic (ankle) is active against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

It's unclear if he's going to play. Antic really just sits on the 3-point line on offense and he won't have much fantasy value in most leagues. Elton Brand would lose some minutes if Antic is a go.
