Wes Iwundu: Excellent during start

Iwundu logged 14 points (3-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds and two steals across 33 minutes during Friday's 117-104 win over the Greensboro Swarm. Iwundu became one of the Charge's regular starters on March 11. He has averaged 10.4 points, 7.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists across five G League games since then.

Wes Iwundu: Serviceable off bench

Iwundu logged 12 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds and one steal across 18 minutes during Tuesday's 126-120 loss to the Motor City Cruise. Iwundu logged one of his best stat lines across the 2021-22 G League season. At best, he will be an adequate backup for a Charge team that rosters many more guards than forwards.

Wes Iwundu: Plays but does little

Iwundu logged zero points (0-1 FG), three assists and one rebound across five minutes during Wednesday's 133-110 loss to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. The Charge have played 16 G League games so far this year. However, Iwundu has sat out all but four of them. They have continually alternated utilizing ineffective backups for starting power forward Tre Scott.

Wes Iwundu: Disappointing against Gold

Iwundu logged four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds and one steal across 20 minutes during Friday's 94-82 loss to the Grand Rapids Gold. Iwundu was signed by the G League's Cleveland Charge earlier this month. He logged his first game for them Friday but failed to supply a serviceable stat line off their bench.

Should the Atlanta Hawks sign Wes Iwundu to another contract?

The Atlanta Hawks have seen some good players come through the franchise on the 10-day hardship deals they have had to sign due to the Covid-19 crisis. Some of these, like Lance Stephenson, did not work out and the Hawks were right to move on from him as he did not show enough during his time with the franchise.

Wes Iwundu: Time over in Atlanta

Iwundu wasn't available Monday for the Hawks' game in Portland after Atlanta didn't re-sign him when his 10-day contract expired Sunday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports. Iwundu went from the starting five to off the roster in just the span of three days, as the fifth-year forward played 43 minutes and logged 12 points and six rebounds as a member of the top unit in the Hawks' most recent game Friday against the Cavaliers. Though Atlanta entered Monday's game without eight players due to injury or COVID-19 health and safety protocols, the returns of Kevin Huerter and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot were enough to cushion the loss of Iwundu on the wing.

Hawks' Wes Iwundu: Returns to bench role

Iwundu isn't starting Monday's game against Portland, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports. Iwundu drew a spot start Friday night against Cleveland, but with Atlanta gaining a number of players back from the league's health and safety protocols, he'll head back to a reserve role. He's logged 23 and 16 minutes in his two games off the bench this season, scoring 10 total points and tallying seven boards over that brief stretch.

Hawks' Wes Iwundu: Starting against Cleveland

Iwundu is starting Friday's game against Cleveland, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports. Iwundu came off the bench in his return to the court Wednesday against the Bulls and scored eight points while playing 16 minutes. He'll take Chaundee Brown's place in the starting five Friday.

Hawks' Wes Iwundu: Returns to action Wednesday

Iwundu notched eight points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds and one steal over 16 minutes during Wednesday's 131-117 loss to the Bulls. Iwundu was back in the lineup Wednesday after missing the previous game due to health and safety issues. He came off the bench but managed to log 16 minutes, a number that is unlikely to repeat itself often moving forward. The Hawks should start getting their main guys back on the court over the next few games, putting to an end the Iwundu experience.

Hawks' Wes Iwundu: Will be available Wednesday

Iwundu (conditioning) will be available for Wednesday's contest against the Bulls, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports. Iwundu cleared the league's health and safety protocols Wednesday and will immediately be available for the Hawks. The 6-foot-7 forward has only made one appearance for Atlanta since signing a 10-day contract Dec. 22. During that contest, he notched two points and five rebounds across 23 minutes. He will likely have a similar workload against the Bulls, as the Hawks currently have 11 players sidelined due to the NBA's COVID-19 protocols.

Hawks' Wes Iwundu: Clears COVID-19 protocols

Iwundu cleared the league's health and safety protocols Wednesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Iwundu signed a 10-day hardship contract with the Hawks on Dec. 22, but he played in just one game before landing in COVID-19 protocols. During that contest, he recorded two points and five rebounds across 23 minutes. It's unclear if he will be available for Wednesday's contest against the Bulls, but if he is, he will likely have a significant role as the Hawks still have 11 other players sidelined due to the NBA's protocols.
