Shelvin Mack scored nine points with four rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers and a season-high nine assists in 26 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.
Revenge game? Mack was terrific as he set up his teammates well all night as coach Frank Vogel went with the small lineup combinations he has all season due to so many injuries. Vogel may not be able to get away with that against the Clippers, so trusting Mack could be a gamble. Plus, that game isn't until Dec. 13. Leave him on the wire. Dec 10 - 1:25 AM

Shelvin Mack did not score with five rebounds and one assist in 11 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

He checked in with 10:34 left in the fourth with the score at 103-67, so he was not in the rotation. Mack moves into the background while D.J. Augustin and Elfrid Payton are healthy.
Nov 18 - 9:32 PM

Shelvin Mack returned to the bench on Monday vs. the Warriors, scoring four points with six assists and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

Elfrid Payton was back in action, but he's being brought along slowly due to soreness in his hamstring. Mack will eventually be demoted back to third-string PG when D.J. Augustin (hamstring) returns, so his owners should find a player with a better long-term outlook.
Nov 14 - 1:12 AM

Shelvin Mack scored seven points in a start at point guard with one rebound, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

While he does start at point guard, Mack is basically a shooting guard and doesn't really handle the ball much. Elfrid Payton (hamstring) is fully expected to be ready for Monday, so put Mack back on the wire.
Nov 12 - 12:20 AM

Shelvin Mack will start against the Nuggets on Saturday.

He hasn't been very good as a starter and Jonathon Simmons has clearly outplayed him when the Magic didn't have Elfrid Payton (hamstring) like tonight. Mack is still a decent stream, but we like Simmons a lot in this matchup.
Nov 11 - 7:35 PM

Shelvin Mack slid to the bench on Sunday, where he posted eight points, three rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes.

Mack started on Friday with both Elfrid Payton and D.J. Augustin nursing hamstring injuries, but he shot just 1-of-8 and was benched in favor of Jonathon Simmons' defense tonight. Frank Vogel made it sound like Elfrid Payton (hamstring) will play on Wednesday, so there's no reason to pick up Mack in any league.
Nov 5 - 9:01 PM

Shelvin Mack will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Celtics.

Mack didn't play all that well in a start against the Bulls on Friday, so Jonathan Simmons will have his time to shine in the starting five. Still, Mack's minutes should be in the mid-20s tonight as the only true point guard on the roster, so he could be someone to consider as a low-end streamer for those seeking to pick up some assists.
Nov 5 - 4:29 PM

Shelvin Mack started at point guard vs. the Bulls on Friday but couldn't hit anything, scoring two points on 1-of-8 shooting.

He did have eight assists with five rebounds and a steal, but only played 21 minutes in the blowout. With Elfrid Payton (hamstring) hopeful to return on Sunday, Mack won't have much value beyond this weekend.
Nov 3 - 9:49 PM

Shelvin Mack, Terrence Ross, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic will start against the Bulls on Friday.

Mack doesn't really have a backup tonight, but Jonathon Simmons is expected to take on a lot of responsibility in the second unit. Simms a.k.a. Juice was in all of the lineups without a point guard in the second half on Wednesday, so he should also be looking at 24-30 minutes. Mack almost has to play 30-34 minutes or more in this game, so he should be a nice stream or value play in DFS.
Nov 3 - 5:20 PM

Shelvin Mack started the second half against the Grizzlies on Wednesday with nine points, two rebounds, eight assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

He played 15 minutes in the second half, and he's now the last man standing at point guard. Elfrid Payton (hamstring) is expected to miss more time and D.J. Augustin (hamstring) is probably out for a handful of games, so Mack may have some short-term value in most leagues.
Nov 2 - 1:02 AM

Shelvin Mack scored three points with three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 10 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

He actually got the start in the second half because Elfrid Payton (hamstring) suffered a strain. Mack could move into the starting lineup in the short term, but D.J. Augustin will likely get more minutes and close games. Mack is only a desperation add for now.
Oct 21 - 12:54 AM

Shelvin Mack is finalizing a two-year, $12 million deal with the Magic, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of

The Magic haven't really done much in free agency, which is probably by design for the rebuilding club. Mack is likely going to compete with D.J. Augustin for the backup point guard minutes, but both have shown they can play shooting guard in the right matchup.
Jul 7 - 7:53 PM

The Knicks have "expressed interest" in free agent PG Shelvin Mack, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

A recent report suggested that New York isn't confident Frank Ntilikina is ready to be a starter this season, which makes sense since he'll be 19 years old on July 28. Mack could be a stopgap option if the Knicks don't want to retain Derrick Rose, whom they reportedly still view as a "serious option."
Jul 1 - 11:48 PM

Shelvin Mack started his third straight game at PG in Game 4 vs. the Warriors on Monday, scoring 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting with five rebounds, two assists and two triples.

He was a popular DFS play and delivered for his owners despite a shaky start -- he had three fouls alone in the first quarter and only played 24 minutes on the night. The 27-year-old PG will be hitting free agency along with teammate George Hill, but he will more than likely be looking at a backup role wherever he lands. He averaged 7.8 points, 2.8 assists, 2.3 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.7 treys in 55 regular-season contests.
May 9 - 12:21 AM

Shelvin Mack played 37 minutes in another start against Warriors on Saturday, making 3-of-11 from the field for 11 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He's had a couple of good possessions, but he's probably having the ball too much compared to guys like Gordon Hayward. Mack hasn't really done anything to lose his role as the No. 2 man to start behind George Hill, but the Jazz may just need a change. The Jazz did break out a new lineup combo with Rodney Hood, Gordon Hayward, Joe Johnson, Joe Ingles and Rudy Gobert, so maybe that could take away from Mack's minutes.
