Predicting Every NBA Team's Starting Lineup for 2021-22

Atlanta Hawks

Image

PG: Trae Young
SG: Bogdan Bogdanovic
SF: De'Andre Hunter
PF: John Collins
C: Clint Capela

Three of the Hawks starters can be carved in stone, with Young, Collins (who signed a five-year, $125 million deal to return) and Capela all guaranteed to keep their opening jobs.

The wing spots could get interesting, however, as players like Cam Reddish and Kevin Huerter could both make a push to steal spots from Bogdanovic and Hunter.

Health will play a factor in who begins the season where, as both Hunter (surgery for a torn meniscus in June) and Reddish (Achilles soreness) battled injuries throughout the 2020-21 regular season and playoffs. Hunter is expected to be cleared for the start of training camp according to The Athletic's Chris Kirschner.

Atlanta has incredible depth at other spots as well, as players like Danilo Gallinari, Lou Williams and Delon Wright are good enough to start for other franchises.

:D

You've named the starting five. Now eliminate five of the twenty shown to come down to the mandatory fifteen man roster.

Starters
PG: Young
SG: Bogdan
SF: Hunter
PF: Collins
C: Capela

Bench:
PG: Wright
SG: Huerter
SF: Reddish
PF: Gallinari
C: Dieng (until Okongwu returns)

The rest:
PG: Lou
SF: Hill
PF: Johnson
C: Okongwu
GLeague bound: Mays, Cooper, Hamilton and Lawson.

If everyone above comes out of training camp healthy - I think we start the season with 14 guaranteed players. So that means TLC and Okafor are camp cuts.

Okafur
Hamilton
TLC
Lawson
Cooper (G league) or Mays if they decide to keep Cooper on the main team.

Per Schlenk:
Schlenk noted that De’Andre Hunter (knee surgery) will not be a full go at the start of camp, but has progressed to playing 1-on-1 and should be ready for the start of the season. Additionally, the GM added that Bogdan Bogdanovic (PRP injection in knee), Clint Capela (PRP injection in Achilles) and Kevin Huerter (ankle procedure) will all also be limited to start camp. Schlenk did note that he expects all four players to be ready to go by opening night, which is Oct. 21 when Atlanta hosts the Dallas Mavericks.

Schlenk also said that Onyeka Okongwu (shoulder surgery) is hoping to be back by late December as a personal goal, but the team remains on the original timeline that tracked him to be back some time in January.

The GM added that the Hawks will be 100% vaccinated for COVID-19 before the regular season. He notes that the entire staff and all players are already vaccinated, other than one player who is receiving his second shot next week.
