STEVE ALEXANDER: Bogdan Bogdanovic appears to be the big winner in Atlanta after they lost Trae Young to an ankle injury recently. We don't know when Young is going to play again. And while Lou Williams and Brandon Goodwin are going to see a boost in minutes for as long as Young as out, it's Bogdanovic who has been making all the noise for the streaking Hawks. Bogdanovic had a monster 32-point game with six 3-pointers in Sunday's big win over the Bucks and has quietly scored in double figures in 15 straight games, which includes all 14 of his April games. For the month, he's averaging 22.3 points, 4.4 boards, 4.3 assists, 1.4 steals, and 4.5 3-pointers on 50% shooting, while also draining 85% of his free throws.

He shouldn't still be available in most fantasy leagues. But if you've got him, he might just help you win a fantasy championship. The Hawks have games on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday this weekend, then have a three-game week for week 20, and finish up the season with a four-game week.

And they're going to need Bogdanovic to keep it going, as they hope to keep their momentum going into the postseason. The Hawks have been the hottest team in the East since the All-Star break. And the strong play of Bogdan Bogdanovic is a big reason why.
