Hawks to Rest Entire Starting Lineup in Season Finale

Locked in as the fifth seed back east, the Atlanta Hawks really have nothing to play for in their season finale against the Indiana Pacers.

So, the team decided to rest its entire starting five in a game that has playoff implications for the Pacers. This comes at the same time that the Brooklyn Nets decided to rest their starters in another game with playoff implications against the Chicago Bulls. 

As it is, Kent Bazemore, Dwight Howard, Paul Millsap, Dennis Schroder and Tim Hardaway Jr. will all be taking a seat on the bench for this game. 

From a DFS perspective, this could end up being a coup for those of you looking to buy low on other Hawks players. Look for Kris Humphries, Ersan Ilyasova and Mike Muscala to pick up a bulk of the scoring for Atlanta in this game. The opportunities should be there, and each will likely put up fantasy-relevant performances to close out the season.
