Atlanta Hawks DFS Notes

Clint Capela has cleared health and safety protocols and will play vs. the Knicks on Saturday. The Hawks get a bit of good news on Christmas morning, though they'll still be without eight players (including Trae Young) due to protocols. Capela should be busier than ever in his return, and Atlanta is even adding Cat Barber and Malik Ellison from their G League affiliate on 10-day hardship deals to help fill out the roster.

New York Knicks DFS Notes

RJ Barrett (conditioning) is listed as questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Hawks, per Tim Bontemps. Barrett will start immediately for the Knicks if he's good to go. With they way Tom Thibodeau is with his lineups, there's a chance he sends Kemba back to the bench after he scored 44 points. Either that or Alec Burks comes off the bench. Either way, Barrett should start if he's healthy.
