Dewayne Dedmon (ribs) is probable for Friday against the Wizards.

The Hawks almost always list guys as probable when they missed time earlier this week. Expect Dedmon to be available.
Apr 5 - 4:50 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (ribs) scored six points on 3-of-6 shooting Wednesday, to go with eight rebounds, two assists and two turnovers through 22 minutes as a starter.

Dedmon looked fine in his return from a one-game absence, and with him back in action, Mike Muscala's minutes dipped to 20 and he finished with four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one turnover while missing all seven of his field goal attempts. Dedmon is the better big to own here, although we'd just recommend avoiding the whole situation.
Apr 4 - 11:01 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (ribs) is available to play against the Heat on Wednesday.

He went through warmups and he sounds like he'll be back after missing Tuesday. Miles Plumlee likely moves out of the rotation here.
Apr 4 - 7:05 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (rib) is a game-time call against the Heat on Wednesday.

The rib issue kept him out for Tuesday night, so it is likely a pain tolerance thing for Dedmon. If he's out, that should give Mike Muscala a ton of run while Miles Plumlee could get a start.
Apr 4 - 5:55 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (rib) is questionable to face the Heat on Wednesday.

Dedmon skipped Tuesday's game with the rib issue, and with Atlanta playing for nothing, it wouldn't be surprising at all to see him miss another game. Miles Plumlee will likely get another start if Dedmon can't play today, with more minutes falling to John Collins and Mike Muscala. Stay tuned.

Dewayne Dedmon (sore rib) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. Miami.

This is a very late scratch, as Dedmon was listed as a starter right up until tip-off. Thus, it's a gut punch for fantasy owners who left Dedmon in their starting lineup and will get a bunch of zeros as a result. Miles Plumlee will draw the start at center, but doesn't present much fantasy upside. We will likely have to wait until after the game to get an explanation on what happened with Dedmon, as well as his status going forward.
Apr 3 - 7:44 PM

Dewayne Dedmon will come off the bench on Tuesday as the Hawks will start Miles Plumlee at center.

Dedmon has been playing well and could still have a nice game off the bench, but this is an odd move for the East's worst team. The Hawks play a disgruntled Hassan Whiteside and the Heat, and at this point, owners of Dedmon just have to hope Dedmon will play off the bench. Plumlee is not really a fantasy asset, even if starting.
Apr 3 - 7:31 PM

Dewayne Dedmon finished Sunday's game with 17 points and 10 rebounds in 34 minutes against the Orlando Magic, his former team.

Dedmon was 7-of-16 shooting while adding three 3-pointers, three assists and a blocked shot with no turnovers and a plus-1 rating. He has rattled off double-doubles in a season-high three consecutive games, with two of those performances coming against two of his former organizations. He'll look to make it four in a row on Tuesday in Miami, a team he hasn't yet played with.
Apr 1 - 9:11 PM

Dewayne Dedmon ended up with nine points, 11 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot over 31 minutes in Friday's loss at Golden State.

Dedmon wasn't terribly efficient, even against a shorthanded Warriors team, hitting just 4-of-10 from the field while going 0-of-3 from the 3-point line. Still, the overall stat line wasn't too terrible. Next up he'll have his hands full with Clint Capela and the Rockets on Sunday evening.
Mar 24 - 2:22 AM

Dewayne Dedmon posted a 13-point, 10-board double-double in Thursday's loss to the Kings, adding one 3-pointer, one steal, one block and one turnover in 26 minutes.

This is pretty much your prototypical Dedmon line, and he’s a fine low-end big to own in deep leagues. Mike Muscala wasn’t great, going 3-of-9 from the field on his way to eight points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist, one block and two turnovers in 24 minutes, but these two will continue to have some increased opportunity for minutes while John Collins (ankle) is out.
Mar 23 - 1:29 AM

Dewayne Dedmon hit 7-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 29 minutes of Tuesday's surprising 99-94 win at Utah.

Dedmon battled Rudy Gobert to a push tonight, which was most impressive. Dedmon had some extra room to work with John Collins out with an ankle injury and responded with one of his better offensive games of the season, as well as his season high in boards. He had 10 points and eight rebounds in his previous game and will look to stay hot against Willie Cauley-Stein and the Kings on Thursday. If you picked Dedmon up before tonight's game, congratulations on a great call.
Mar 20 - 11:45 PM

Dewayne Dedmon scored 10 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.

Despite the lottery talk, Dedmon continues to find minutes with at least 27 in five of the last six. His playing time could go up even more with John Collins getting hurt today with an ankle sprain in the fourth. Dedmon does enough across the board to be added in most leagues.
Mar 17 - 9:15 PM

Dewayne Dedmon hit 4-of-6 shots and 4-of-4 free throws for 12 points, 10 rebounds, a steal and three blocks during Tuesday's 106-90 loss to the Raps.

That was a great line from Dedmon, but he's been completely hit-or-miss for the Hawks lately. He's tough to trust and this was his first double-double since Feb. 13, but he is posting serviceable numbers, averaging 9.4 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.8 blocks over his last five.
Mar 6 - 9:45 PM

Dewayne Dedmon scored six points with seven rebounds, one assist and two steals in 32 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

He somehow made 2-of-10 from the field with only three shots from deep, but at least the minutes are there. Dedmon is coming off a monster 15-point, four-block Wednesday and for now it looks like the Hawks are going to play him regularly. He's worth a look if you need a big man who canned some defensive stats.
