Atlanta Hawks DFS Notes

Clint Capela (right knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Heat. The MRI on Capela's right knee showed no structural damage, and he will be evaluated again in a week. He will likely miss significant time in the Hawks-Heat playoff series if he can return at all. This is a tough blow for a Hawks team that is currently playing without their star forward, John Collins (finger/foot).

Miami Heat DFS Notes

Bam Adebayo is no longer listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against Hawks. Adebayo was away from the team due to the league's health and safety protocols, but he will suit up for Sunday's game against the Hawks. The 24- year old center averaged 19.1 points, 10.1 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 1.4 steals on 55.7% shooting.
