Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford will not play against the Heat on Saturday.

He is not at the arena and is just getting the night off. Horford has been very healthy this season and the team wants to keep it that way. Elton Brand will start, but there should be more of Mike Scott and Mike Muscala.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Wednesday's Mavs at Hawks game "is happening" despite the bad weather, according to the Hawks.

After a lot of uncertainty, we finally have a solid update. Fantasy owners can go ahead and insert their Hawks and Mavericks back in their lineups.
Feb 25 - 4:02 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford hit 11-of-15 shots for 22 points, 12 rebounds and a block in Wednesday's tough loss at Boston.

The Hawks led throughout the game, but were outscored 28-16 in the fourth quarter and blew an 18-point lead to lose to the Celtics. The Hawks are still the beat of the East, but with a loss to the Lakers and Celtics, and a blowout at home to the Bucks, still have the potential to be beaten by any team in the league. Horford shot 59 percent in January and looked great in this loss.
Feb 11 - 10:49 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored a season-high 28 points on 11-of-18 shooting (6-of-7 FTs) with eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in Monday's win.

It took Horford a little while to get going, as expected, but he has more than exceeded expectations with top 20-30 returns when on the floor. Paul Millsap added 19 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, one steal and a three, and DeMarre Carroll scored 26 points in the win.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford made only 2-of-11 shots on Sunday, scoring six points with 12 rebounds, two assists and four turnovers in a rare road loss in Memphis.

Horford and Paul Millsap combined for a mere 10 points on 4-of-21 shooting in easily the worst offensive performance of the season for Atlanta's elite frontcourt. All credit is due to Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph and the Grizzlies' team defense, and Horford's owners can expect a much different result vs. the Wolves on Monday.
Feb 8 - 8:31 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford hit just 10-of-24 shots for 21 points, 13 rebounds, a steal and a block in Wednesday's win over the Wizards.

After 11 straight games of shooting 50 percent or better from the floor, Horford has hit less than 50 percent of his shots in two straight. It's far from a slump though, as he's hit 14-of-33 shots over those two games. Look for him to get dialed back in against the Warriors on Friday.
Feb 4 - 10:37 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford had another magnificent game during a 91-85 win over the 76ers on Saturday, making 10-of-16 from the field for 23 points with 11 rebounds, four assists and three blocks.

That's the Hawks 19th win in a row and they're already at 40 wins on the season. As for Horford, he has been ridiculous in his last 10 games, making 69.8 percent from the field for averages of 18.6 points, 8.4 boards, 5.1 assists, 1.4 blocks and 0.8 steals. He's also made 84.6 percent from the line and is an absolute monster. He's been a top-five fantasy player in that span.
Feb 1 - 12:10 AM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford filled the stat sheet against the Blazers on Friday with 17 points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

He's on fire. In his previous 10 games, Horford averaged 17.9 points, 7.9 boards, 5.1 assists, 1.2 blocks and 0.7 steals on 71.1 percent from the field. He's certainly capable of being a top-10 fantasy asset and his owners should be asking for a lot if they want to sell high.
Jan 30 - 10:06 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford hit 10-of-13 shots for 20 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

Horford came into this one hitting 53-of-72 shots over his last seven games, and that number got a lot better tonight. The Hawks are playing out of their minds right now and have won 17 straight, and 31 of their last 33 games. And with Mike Budenholzer coaching the East All-Stars, it's possible that Horford, Paul Millsap (28 & 15), Jeff Teague (13 & 11) and Kyle Korver (full stat line, 5 3-pointers) could all be joining him in Brooklyn as coach's picks.
Jan 29 - 1:54 AM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford has shot 53-of-72 from the field over his last seven games.

In other words, Horford is on absolute fire. During that stretch, he's also 19-of-22 from the free throw line. "I’m taking good shots within the offense," he said. "I have a good rhythm right now." Since January came around, Horford is averaging 16.5 points, 7.3 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.3 blocks on 57.5 percent shooting.
Jan 26 - 10:23 AM
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.
Jan 25 - 8:56 PM
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.
Jan 19 - 6:24 PM
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.
Jan 17 - 11:11 PM
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.
