Brand has efficient night in 19 minutes (Mar 11 12:00 ET )
Elton Brand scored eight points on 4-of-5 shooting with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and three blocks in just 19 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Jazz.
Elton Brand came off the bench for 18 minutes and had eight points, five rebounds, two assists and zero blocks in Saturday's loss to the Clippers.
The Scoop:Brand has been pretty fun to own with Pero Antic and Paul Millsap injured for the Hawks, but both players are back and in the starting lineup, meaning Brand's run is over. If they get hurt again, Brand will re-emerge as a fantasy factor, but if not, he's not worth holding.
Mike Scott hit 2-of-6 shots for four points and three rebounds, and Elton Brand had six points and three rebounds in Wednesday's ugly loss in Portland.
The Scoop:The Hawks hit just 29-of-88 shots (33 percent) and 4-of-27 3-pointers (15 percent) on a night that saw Kyle Korver's 127-game 3-pointers streak end. Yes, Pero Antic was back, but the Hawks were a disaster tonight and Scott and Brand would have struggled with Antic in street clothes. The Hawks have a great weekly playoff schedule and all four players are probably worth rostering in weekly leagues, given the 4-4-4-4 finish during the fantasy playoffs.
Elton Brand notched 13 points, six rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks in 31 minutes on Sunday, as the Hawks fell 120-129 in Phoenix.
The Scoop:In the process he tied Elvin Hayes for No. 21 on the all-time blocks list, having swatted 1,771 shots in his career. A fast-paced game like Sunday doesn't play to Brand's strengths, to say the least, and it's a credit to the veteran that he's been effective in huge minutes as the short-handed Hawks limp to the finish line. EB has been a solid fantasy option for the past 10 days but his value will take a hit with Pero Antic (ankle) on the verge of a return.
Elton Brand played 34 minutes and had 10 points, seven rebounds, five assists, a steal and five blocks in Wednesday's loss to the Celtics.
The Scoop:His minutes have been through the roof and he's been playing well for the struggling Hawks. Paul Millsap, Pero Antic and Gustavo Ayon are eventually going to return and give him a breather, but Brand may have carved out enough minutes to be relevant even when some of those guys are back.
