Description: Pero Antic will play for the Hawks on Friday after missing Wednesday's game with ankle soreness, but Elton Brand will start, according to the Hawks on Twitter.
Insight: Brand had 13 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in 33 minutes Wednesday. However, he hadn't scored double-digit points or grabbed double-digit rebounds in the previous five games.
 
4/9/2014 10:14:00 PM
Description: Hawks center Elton Brand started Wednesday against Boston and had 13 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block.
Insight: Pero Antic was out with ankle soreness, allowing Brand to get the start. The veteran played 22+ minutes in each of the previous five games but didn't have double-digit points or rebounds in any of them.
 
2/26/2014 10:01:00 PM
Description: Hawks center Elton Brand has blocked 12 shots his last four games.
Insight: Brand had 10 points, seven rebounds, five assists, five blocks and a steal Wednesday at Boston. With Al Horford, Pero Antic, Paul Millsap and Gustavo Ayon out, Atlanta has had to play Brand extensively as of late. He has averaged 35.2 minutes over his last six games.

Insight: Horford went down with a torn pectoral muscle earlier in the week and could miss the rest of the season. It's unknown if the move is permanent. Mike Scott and Pero Antic are next up on the depth chart if Brand (2.9 ppg, 3.6 rpg) struggles in his new role.

Insight: Brand will be depth for Atlanta behind center Al Horford and power forward Paul Millsap. He's only a shadow of the guy who averaged 20-10 in Chicago and Los Angeles, but he'll get his minutes in Atlanta with Zaza Pachula gone. Pencil him in for about eight points and six rebounds a night off the bench.
 
4/12/2013 8:33:00 PM
Description: Dallas forward Elton Brand (sore right calf) is expected to play Friday after missing four straight games.
Insight: Brand was in uniform Wednesday but didn't play. He'll cut into the minutes of Chris Kaman and Brandan Wright, who both have been playing well lately.
 
4/10/2013 5:32:00 PM
Description: Dallas forward Elton Brand (sore right calf) is expected to be in uniform Wednesday versus the Suns, according to Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com.
Insight: It's not clear if Brand, who has missed three straight games, will play. He has no fantasy value, but his presence would make Chris Kaman a less desirable fantasy option.
 
4/8/2013 10:42:00 AM
Description: Dallas forward Elton Brand is questionable for Wednesday's game against Phoenix with a sore right calf.
Insight: Brand, who was useful to fantasy owners earlier in the year when Dirk Nowitzki and Chris Kaman were both dealing with injuries, has missed three consecutive games and wasn't producing even before the latest injury.
 
4/5/2013 9:20:00 PM
Description: Dallas forward Elton Brand is taking the night off Friday to rest his sore calf.
Insight: Brand was useful to fantasy owners earlier in the year when Dirk Nowitzki and Chris Kaman were both dealing with injuries. Now that they're healthy again, most fantasy owners have probably forgotten about Brand.
 
4/5/2013 11:53:00 AM
Description: Mavericks power forward Elton Brand is doubtful for Friday's game against Sacramento due to a sore right calf.
Insight: That will give more minutes to Chris Kaman and Brandan Wright. None of the three players are worth owning unless you are chasing blocks with Wright.
 
4/4/2013 7:46:00 PM
Description: Mavericks power forward Elton Brand will miss Thursday's game against the Nuggets due to a sore right calf.
Insight: That will give more minutes to Chris Kaman and Brandan Wright. None of the three players are worth owning unless you are chasing blocks with Wright.
 
2/26/2013 11:05:00 PM
Description: Mavericks power forward Elton Brand has scored 13 or more points in four straight games. He had 12 points, 14 boards and three blocks in 25 minutes Tuesday against Milwaukee.
Insight: Brand hasn't been starting but he usually ends up playing more minutes than any other center on the Mavericks. Chris Kaman, who just returned Sunday from a 10-game absence due to a concussion, was a DNP-CD on Tuesday.
 
1/22/2013 3:21:00 PM
Description: Mavericks power forward Elton Brand started the second half at center on Sunday. While Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said he has considered making that change to the starting five and having Chris Kaman come off the bench, he indicated that the move on Monday was a situational decision. SOURCE: ESPN Dallas
Insight: Brand has been putting up 11.1 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game in 25 minutes off the bench over the last nine games. Kaman, meanwhile, has only played 21 mpg in that same span, averaging 9.1 points, 5.4 rebounds and 0.8 blocks.
 
1/20/2013 8:43:00 PM
Description: Mavericks power forward Elton Brand has scored 10 or more points in five straight games, including 14 on Sunday against the Magic.
Insight: Brand is averaging 11.1 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.8 blocks over his last nine games. He's worth an add as a short-term big man option.
 
1/15/2013 4:38:00 PM
Description: Mavericks power forward Elton Brand's 20 points Monday against the Timberwolves were a season high.
Insight: Brand is averaging 10 points, 6.2 boards and 1.6 blocks while shooting 61.8 percent from the field over his last nine games. He could be a short-term option for fantasy teams needing a big man.
 
12/21/2012 7:57:00 PM
Description: Mavericks power forward Elton Brand is out for Friday's game against Memphis because of a right groin strain.
Insight: Brand's 6.8 ppg and 42.9 field goal percentage are both career lows. Even when he's healthy, Brand's production doesn't justify a spot on any fantasy rosters.
 
12/21/2012 11:55:00 AM
Description: Dallas forward Elton Brand is questionable for Friday's game against Memphis because of a groin injury.
Insight: Brand's 1.3 blocks per game are nice but his 6.8 ppg and 6.3 rpg make him a non-factor in fantasy leagues.
 
12/18/2012 7:24:00 PM
Description: Dallas forward Elton Brand is a game-time decision Tuesday against his former team the Philadelphia 76ers because of a groin injury.
Insight: Brand's 1.3 blocks per game are nice but his 6.8 ppg and 6.3 rpg make him a non-factor in fantasy leagues.
 
11/27/2012 10:20:00 PM
Description: Dallas forward Elton Brand only played 19 minutes off the bench Tuesday against his former team Philadelphia but he made them count, scoring a season-high 17 points on 5-of-10 shooting with eight rebounds.
Insight: Brand has only scored in double figures two other times this season. This was likely nothing more than a case of vengeance against his ex-team.
 
11/9/2012 12:30:00 PM
Description: Dallas forward Elton Brand, who left the team to be with his wife while she gave birth, has returned and is expected to play Friday against the New York Knicks.
Insight: Brand has so far been disappointing averaging 5.8 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 2.3 apg, 1.3 spg. while playing over 25 minutes per game.
