Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

The Hawks won their 16th consecutive game on Sunday, aided by Al Horford's near-perfect 19 points on 8-of-9 field goals and 3-of-3 free throws.

He also had six rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and one turnover in 31 minutes, and the Hawks are looking virtually unstoppable at the halfway point of the season. This is a quintessential Horford line, blending nice numbers with even nicer efficiency, and he's staked himself to top-20 value in 9-cat leagues.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford stayed hot during Monday's home win, scoring 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting with six boards, seven assists, one steal and one block.

Horford is a ridiculous 33-of-41 from the field (80.5 percent) over his past four games, averaging 19.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists during that span. Those numbers have vaulted him back into early-round territory after a somewhat slow start to the season, and the 28-year-old is unlikely to pick up many more DNP-CDs as he did on Wednesday.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford was outstanding against the Bulls during a 107-99 win at Chicago on Saturday with 22 points, nine rebounds, four assists and one steal on 11-of-14 from the field.

He's made 84.4 percent from the field in his last three games. The Hawks are just dominating teams right now and have gone 26-2 in their last 28 games, which is 34.1 percent of the NBA schedule. They need three players in the All-Star game and Horford might be one of them. The buy-low window is completely shut.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford made all eight shots from the field during an impressive 110-89 win in Toronto on Friday, scoring a total of 22 points with five boards and five assists in 28 minutes.

The Hawks are really good. They have a five-game lead over every other team in the Eastern Conference. Plus, they have blown out their opponent in each of their last four games. Horford was quiet in December, but he's really turned it around in 2015. If you were able to buy low, feel free to pat yourself on the back.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Raptors, sending Pero Antic back to the bench.

Horford was rested during the Hawks' previous game, but he'll return to the lineup tonight. Make sure he's active for what will be an uptempo game against Toronto.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford (rest) will not start against the Celtics on Wednesday, according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe.

The Hawks rested three of their starters on Tuesday and now they're going to rest more tonight. Horford was phenomenal against the 76ers with a triple-double and he'll be ready for the weekend. While he's out, Pero Antic, Mike Muscala and Elton Brand could get more run. Also the Hawks are expected to rest others, so stay tuned.
Jan 14 - 6:16 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford recorded his first career triple-double vs. the 76ers on Tuesday with 21 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, making 8-of-10 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs in only 29 minutes of action.

He capitalized on a larger-than-usual role due to the precautionary absence of starters Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll. Horford is rolling along in January, averaging 14.7 points, 6.7 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.3 blocks before tonight's monster game, and he's poised for a terrific second half of the season as Atlanta tries to maintain the No. 1 seed in the East.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford had a nice outing during Sunday's win over the Wizards, putting up 15 points (6-of-12 shooting) with six rebounds, three assists, two blocks, one steal, and one 3-pointer.

Horford now has five 3-pointers on the season, and typically those makes are coming during blowout games. It's still a nice surprise, and Horford is quietly putting up early-round value on the year with averages of 14.5 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.4 blocks on 52.1 percent shooting.
Jan 11 - 7:09 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 19 points on 9-of-21 shooting with 16 rebounds, four assists and one block in Friday's win over the Pistons.

The Hawks are on fire and a legit contender in the East. Jeff Teague went for 14 and 11, Paul Millsap scored 17 points with a relatively full stat line, Kyle Korver hit three treys and had 11 points, and DeMarre Carroll had his usual 13 points, two treys, four boards and a steal in the win.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford hit just 5-of-15 shots for 12 points, three rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in Wednesday's tough win over the Grizzlies.

He's been dealing with an illness but played 31 minutes tonight, a sign that he's feeling better. Horford hasn't had more than 16 points or five rebounds in his last four games, but should break out of his slump sooner than later.
Jan 8 - 12:13 AM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford (illness) will be active for Friday's game against the Jazz.

He was probable heading into this one, so it looks like he's going to play after being a late scratch on Tuesday. Horford has a tough matchup against Utah, but remains a must-start guy every time he's in uniform. Pero Antic will head back to the bench.
Jan 2 - 1:19 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford (illness) took part in Thursday's practice, and is probable for Friday's game vs. Utah.

Horford was a late scratch for Tuesday's game, but all signs are pointing towards him giving it a go on Friday, which would send Pero Antic back to the bench. Check back for an official update on Horford's status closer to Friday's tip.
Jan 1 - 2:40 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford (illness) is probable for Friday's game against the Jazz.

He was a late scratch for Tuesday's game after feeling really sick prior to tip-off, but he now has three days to rest and we expect to see him back in action. If Horford does end up sitting on Friday, Pero Antic would likely draw another start but he is too unreliable to use in most leagues.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford (illness) was a late scratch on Tuesday, and Pero Antic will draw the start vs. the Cavaliers.

This is a tough blow for his owners considering there was no mention of an illness prior to the game. Horford should be fine for their next game on Friday, but we should have plenty of updates before then so owners will have to check back. Antic will get the start, but should only be looked at in ridiculously deep leagues.
