Prince is expected to miss at least three weeks after he exited Monday's game against Golden State in the fourth quarter with a sprained left ankle.
Advice: It's another tough blow for the struggling Hawks, as Prince is the team's second-leading scorer at 15 points per game and is shooting 44.8 percent (13 of 29) from 3-point range over his last five outings.
Taurean Prince scored 14 points Monday, going 5 of 10 from the field, as the Atlanta Hawks lost to the Golden State Warriors 128-111. Prince pulled down one rebound and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -9 in his 27:08 on the floor. He tacked on one steal. Prince went 3 of 6 from 3-point range.
Taurean Prince (left ankle) will miss at least the next three weeks of action.
Advice: An MRI revealed a ligament sprain, bone bruise and associated soft tissue inflammation in his left ankle, so he'll be re-evaluated in three weeks. If all goes well, Prince might be able to get back to the court for Atlanta's first game after Christmas on December 26, but in the meantime, it'll be Kent Bazemore, DeAndre Bembry and Kevin Huerter picking up the slack. Bembry has solid upside with defensive stats, so he could be worth an add in deep leagues.
Taurean Prince (left ankle) is expected to miss at least the next two games for Atlanta.
Advice: X-rays came back negative on Prince's left ankle, but we're still awaiting the MRI results. Either way, his ankle was "significantly swollen" on Tuesday, according to head coach Lloyd Pierce, so owners will need to plan on being without his services over the next few games. Kent Bazemore is expected to return to the starting lineup while he's out, and there will be more opportunity for DeAndre Bembry and Kevin Huerter.
