Hamilton was perfect from the floor in Thursday's victory, but he had limited shot volume and was held to just seven points. He's now logged double-digit minutes on the court in each of the last seven games but hasn't had many looks from the floor across that span.... See More ... See Less

Johnny Hamilton: Cut by Atlanta

Johnny Hamilton: Despite limited minutes, still earns double-double
Hamilton scored 20 points (9-14 FG, 2-2 FT) and secured 12 rebounds along with five blocked shots in the loss Tuesday to the Blue Coats.
Hamilton actually ceded the starting opportunity to Jon Horford, who was playing in only his second game since injuring his back earlier in January, but Hamilton still wound up playing four more minutes than his starting teammate. The defensive exploits of Hamilton will likely guarantee him at least 20 minutes a night, but so long as the Drive seem content to figure out what they have in Horford, the former two-way big man might struggle to see additional opportunities regardless of his success....

Thursday's road game versus the Maine Red Claws was postponed due to a water leak in the roof of the Portland Expo.

Hamilton tallied 21 points (8-13 FG, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one blocked shot in the 116-88 loss to Long Island on Wednesday.
Hamilton was about the only starter able to put together a productive stat line, as the depleted Drive roster was utterly flummoxed by Long Island. Hamilton continues to be one of the more reliable centers in the G League, averaging 13.1 points and 9.6 rebounds in 25 games this season, both numbers that have seen a substantial jump in the last month....

Johnny Hamilton: Strong performance in win
Hamilton finished the win Wednesday over the Herd with 21 points, 13 rebounds, six blocked shots and four assists.
Hamilton was easily the team's biggest star during the win, leading the Drive in scoring, rebounding and blocks despite coming off the bench. Jon Horford got the start at center, but given the 27-year-old only played 19 minutes, Hamilton projects as the big man to own in nearly all fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
