The Hawks are now three games into the season - at the start of what figures to be a multi-year rebuilding process. Mike at the moment seems to be firmly established as one of the four Hawks big men (PF/C) in the rotation, along with Ilyasova, 7-0 center Dewayne Dedmon, and 1st round pick 6-10 John Collins. For three games - a win at Dallas plus losses at Charlotte and Brooklyn - Mike's stats look like this:

1. 14 min; 2-2 on twos; 0-1 on threes; 0-0 FTs; 4 rebounds; 2 assists; 4 points.

2. 19 min; 2-4 on twos; 1-4 on threes; 2-2 FTs; 4 rebounds; 9 points.

3. 25 min; 3-5 on twos; 0-1 on the threes; 2-3 FTs; 6 rebounds; 1 assist; 8 points.

TOTAL. 58 min; 7-11 on twos; 1-6 on threes; 4-5 FTs; 14 rebounds; 3 assists; 21 points.

Mike starting tonight in place of Ilyasova. Not off to a great start 0-3. Hawks are getting clobbered in the 2nd Q again.

Very good night for Mike getting the start last night. 14 points, 10 rebounds and a handful of assists in 31 minutes. 2-4 from 3pt range as well.

Hawks look like they are going to be terrible this year however.

Mike had a big game as a starter last night in a 91-86 loss. He played 31 minutes, had 14 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal, and 1 block. Shot 3-7 on twos, 2-4 on threes, and 2-2 from the line.

This was Mike's first double double.

Mike is back in the starting lineup with Ilyasova out again for 1-2 weeks. He'll have his hands full today vs. the Bucks.

The Hawks may be the worst team in the NBA.

This is the first game they've been out of from the start. But, yes, right now they are one of the worst teams in league.

Yes. I think only Phoenix, Chicago, and maybe the Knicks can challenge them for that spot. I am sure their game plan is to get a high lottery pick to fuel their rebuilding process.

Imagine buying season tickets for a forfeited season.

Try being a Sixers' fan with 3-4 years of losing during "The Process". Pro hoops is not what it used to be. IMO, Mega-guaranteed contracts have ruined The Association.

Muscala with another start in Philly...played just five minutes andhasnt been back since. 0-2 with a rebound and steal. Not sure if he was injured, I missed the time he was on the floor., but if not, he seems to be missing a great opportunity with Ilyasova out.

Mike back in for the 4th Q. Hawks are keeping it close.

Did anybody see Muscala get dunked over by Ben Simmons? It is the Play of the Day on NBC Sports Philly.

BTW, Muscala needs to be more aggressive on O. In the NBA, you need to make your own shot.

It never looks good for someone to dunk when you are the defender shown on the video - but in Mike's defense, he wasn't guarding Simmons. He was defending Emblid and tried to help at the last minute after Simmons blew by his man. But too late.

Mike is now out with a sprained ankle. Expected to return by the end of the week.

Is it the end of the manbun? Mike has reportedly shaved his head.

Doesn’t help Mike that the Hawks beat the Cavs on the road with him benched. Yikes!
