Shelvin Mack played 19 minutes against the Nets on Tuesday with eight points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.
He picked up all of the backup point guard minutes behind Dennis Schroder tonight. Mack has been capable of filling it up in limited playing time, so he's worth a look as a short-term flier in deep leagues while Jeff Teague (ankle) is out. Nov 17 - 11:26 PM

Shelvin Mack still deals with occasional right shoulder stiffness as a result of his Grade 5 separation last season.

"I’m just trying to get better, each and every day," he said. "I wasn't able to do a lot this summer." Mack will be behind his teammates, and that could have him on the outside looking in for playing time as the regular season opens.

Shelvin Mack played six minutes against the Pelicans on Friday with two points and two rebounds.

It's his second game back from his shoulder surgery. Mack figures to be in the rotation and will compete with Tim Hardaway Jr. for playing time.
Oct 9 - 9:57 PM

Shelvin Mack (shoulder) has been cleared for basketball activity.

He was expected to be ready for camp after suffering a shoulder injury in the playoffs and requiring surgery. It'll be interesting to see if the Hawks use more two-point guard lineups with Dennis Schroder and Jeff Teague. Mack could find himself getting minutes in the high teens.

Shelvin Mack expects to be ready for the Hawks’ training camp after undergoing right shoulder surgery in June.

Mack's original timeline had him returning sometime in August or September, so he should be fine when training camp opens up in late-September. However, Mack is the third-string point guard in Atlanta, so he's not going to have any fantasy value and can be ignored in all leagues on draft day.
Aug 18 - 5:50 PM

Shelvin Mack underwent successful shoulder surgery on Tuesday, and he is expected to make a full recovery in 3-4 months.

Mack owns career-averages of 5.4 points and 2.8 assists on 41.4 percent shooting from the field. He should be ready to go by the start of next year's training camp, but as the third-string point guard in Atlanta, it'll take more than a few injuries for him to gain any sort of relevancy in fantasy leagues. Obviously he's not someone to target on draft day in standard leagues.
Jun 4 - 5:43 PM

Shelvin Mack will be sidelined for the next 3-4 months with a Grade 5 separation of the right shoulder that will require surgery.

Mack sustained the injury during the closing minutes of Game 4's season-ending loss to the Cavs, and he's scheduled to undergo surgery on Tuesday. He'll have plenty of time to get ready for training camp, but as the third-string point guard in Atlanta, his fantasy value is right around zero.
May 28 - 4:53 PM

Shelvin Mack will have surgery on his right shoulder.

The Hawks are really, really banged up with the season ending. Mack separated his shoulder and the surgery should take place next week. He'll be nothing more than a backup next season.
May 27 - 9:37 PM

Shelvin Mack contributed 14 points, four rebounds, six assists and two steals off the bench during Sunday's losing effort vs. the Wizards.

Atlanta was playing without their entire starting lineup, which opened up 26 minutes for Mack. He won't get so lucky on Monday as coach Mike Budenholzer plans to use his typical starters, so there's no incentive to pick up Mack in fantasy leagues.
Apr 12 - 8:48 PM

Shelvin Mack came off Atlanta's bench for 12 points, three rebounds, five assists and one steal on Tuesday, logging 24 minutes in the absence of Dennis Schroder (sprained toe).

He sank 6-of-9 shots tonight and can help fantasy owners with 3-pointers, assists and steals when given enough playing time. Mack would be a decent spot-starter on Saturday if Schroder isn't ready to play, so keep a close eye on Atlanta's injury report as the week progresses.
Mar 31 - 10:02 PM

Shelvin Mack did not score in 13 minutes against the Bucks on Monday with one rebound, four assists and one steal.

Dennis Schroder (toe) was hurt tonight and Jeff Teague is unlikely to play on Tuesday in a back-to-back, so we should see Mack getting major run. If you're looking for a player to stream on a light four-game night, he's one of the best options out there among players widely available in leagues.
Mar 31 - 1:10 AM

Shelvin Mack started the second half of Sunday's game after Kyle Korver broke his nose, and he finished with 18 points on 7-of-13 shooting, three 3-pointers and three assists in 35 minutes.

Mack looks like the starting SG for Monday's game vs. the Kings and we'll be keeping a close eye on him, as it's still unclear how much time Korver will miss. His 38.8 percent shooting is a concern but given the opportunity Mack should help owners with scoring, 3-pointers, assists and steals.
Mar 16 - 12:12 AM

Shelvin Mack said there is "no game" tonight for the Hawks and Mavericks.

He's not the usual suspect to drop a scoop bomb on Twitter, so we'll wait for an official word from the NBA. For now, it sounds like there will be no game, so fantasy owners need to get all of their Hawks and Mavs out of their lineup. This has been Mack's biggest fantasy impact in the past month, but he'll have value if Jeff Teague misses time.
Feb 25 - 3:36 PM

Shelvin Mack (calf) will play vs. Golden State on Friday, as expected.

His return bumps Adreian Payne to the Hawks' inactive list, and gives Atlanta a bit of insurance behind Jeff Teague and Dennis Schroder. Mack is a non-factor in typical fantasy leagues with muted season averages of 4.5 points, 0.6 threes, 1.5 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 0.4 steals.
Feb 6 - 7:03 PM

Shelvin Mack (calf) is expected to be active for Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

Mack is currently behind Jeff Teague and Dennis Schroder in the rotation, so there's a good chance that he doesn't see the floor tonight. Unless Mack earns a larger role in Atlanta, he won't be worth owning in almost all leagues.
