Hawes received a DNP-CD in Game 2 against the Spurs.

It appears as though Hawes has been exiled from the rotation after playing a mere three minutes in Game 1. DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin will continue to dominate minutes at center and power forward, with Glen Davis taking what is left over. Hawes is not a fantasy factor at this time.

Hawes returned to his role on the bench on Sunday and was held scoreless in three minutes against the Rockets.

Hawes had been starting in place of injured Blake Griffin (elbow) who returned to action on Sunday. After Griffin went down, Hawes failed to show reason why he should maintain a primary role in the rotation, averaging 6.7 points (31.7% FG, 29.6% 3Pt) along with 4.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 23 minutes per game in March. Hawes should see a large reduction in playing time as Griffin remains healthy.

Hawes is expected to head back to the bench with the return of Blake Griffin (elbow) into the starting lineup Sunday against the Rockets, the Orange County Register reports.

Hawes enjoyed a prolonged stint in the starting lineup with Griffin off the court but his bump in value will likely see its end Sunday. Expect Hawes to see limited time off the bench behind Griffin in the final leg of the regular season.

Hawes scored 14 points to go with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal, three blocks, and two three-pointers in 23 minutes Sunday against the Bulls.

Hawes played a little over his head Sunday, finally stringing together a stat line that is relevant for standard leagues. He went five straight games prior to Sunday scoring in double digits, and since Blake Griffin went down nine games ago, Hawes has averaged a disappointing 9.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.6 steals, 1.4 blocks, and 0.9 three-pointers in 26 minutes per game. Don't go chasing Hawes-er falls. Griffin's return is getting closer, and once he's back, Hawes' limited value will dry up even more.

Hawes scored 17 points (7-16 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), to go with one rebound, and a block in 35 minutes off the bench on Sunday.

With Blake Griffin on the sidelines Hawes should get plenty of run. Last year he proved he can put up big numbers if he gets the minutes, but this game wasn't quite an example of that. If you need big man stats, with some three-point production, in the short term Hawes is worth an addition to see if he can match the totals he put up previously.

Hawes will start in place of Blake Griffin (staph infection) on Sunday against the Thunder.

Hawes is in store for a significant boost in value while Griffin is off the court dealing with a staph infection on his elbow. The timetable for Griffin's return is pretty vague at this point, but Hawes is expected to garner extra playing time through the All-Star break at least.

Hawes scored four points (2-6 FG, 0-2 FT), while pulling down one rebounds, and handing out one assist in 18 minutes on Sunday.

In his seven games back from a knee injury Hawes hasn't posted anything that would make him worth owning outside of the deepest leagues. The Clippers were always in need of a dependable big man to come off the bench, but after seeing what Hawes was capable of with extended minutes last year it is disappointing to see him reduced to this. Maybe the Clippers find out a way to fully utilize him, but until signs sow that keep him off your roster.

Hawes provided 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and seven rebounds in 23 minutes in the win over New York on Wednesday.

Hawes is still ramping up his minutes after missing nine games with a knee injury. He should be able to help the Clippers space the floor and provide a fair amount of rebounds.

Hawes (knee) logged 13 minutes in his return to action Monday against the Jazz. He contributed two points, three rebounds, two assists, and two blocks.

Hawes had missed nine games with the injury and it appears he'll be good to go moving forward. Still, he's averaging just 6.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 0.8 blocks for the season, and won't be an option in most leagues unless DeAndre Jordan or Blake Griffin were to get hurt.

Hawes (knee) will suit up Monday against the Jazz.

Coach Doc Rivers said that Hawes is slated to earn some run, but he's unsure exactly how much. Because the rest of the Clippers' frontcourt is healthy, though, Hawes will more than likely be eased into action after a nine-game absence due to a bone bruise in his left knee.
