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.

Hawes (knee) is currently listed as "questionable" for Monday's game against the Jazz, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reports.

Hawes has missed nine straight games for the Clippers, but it looks as if the 7-foot-1 forward could be nearing a return. Once he does take the court, he'll likely be eased into action, and shouldn't see too much more than 20-25 minutes on a given night -- at least initially.

Although he was upgraded to doubtful prior to the game on Saturday, Hawes did not suit up against the Raptors. Hawes' upgrade to doubtful indicates that he'll be back on the court relatively soon. An earlier report stated that he'll be participating in 1-on-1 work over the weekend.The Clippers' next game is Monday against the Jazz, so his status for that contest is up in the air at this point.
