Spencer Hawes played 19 minutes off the bench on Thursday with four points, four rebounds, one assist and one block.
The Scoop:He did get some minutes at power forward, but mostly backed up DeAndre Jordan. Hawes will have a lot of weak games, so his owners might want to shoot for a higher upside, especially considering how durable Blake and DJ are.
Spencer Hawes scored 24 points in 23 minutes in Friday's exhibition win, hitting 9-of-15 shots (including three treys) with six rebounds, one steal and one block.
The Scoop:DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin combined to play 70 minutes and this illustrates how Hawes has a legit chance to help fantasy squads this year. Hawes will be held back by lower field goal percentage because of all those 3-point attempts, and his defensive stats are nothing to write home about, but all told he's a safe and solid pick in the late rounds of a standard draft.
Spencer Hawes played 23 minutes off the bench against the Blazers on Sunday with 15 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.
The Scoop:He looks to be penciled in for minutes in the mid 20s with his new team, which should allow him to produce some decent fantasy stats due to his contributions in treys and blocks. Hawes may get some added run in the fourth quarter because DeAndre Jordan can't make free throws. Although, DJ's best quarter for free throws last season was the fourth.
