Dennis Schroder (ankle) said he's targeting a return on Friday vs. Denver.
He will miss Monday's game vs. the Heat and Thursday's game against Chicago, so he's only going to play in two games this week if this timetable holds. "I don’t want to rush it," Schroder said of his ankle. Malcolm Delaney is looking at at least two starts and has some deep-league streaming appeal. Oct 23 - 6:58 PM

Dennis Schroder (left ankle sprain) will not play on Monday vs. the Heat.

An MRI on Monday morning confirmed a sprain for Schroder, but they did not provide a timetable. His owners just need to sit tight for now, but expect the Hawks to be cautious. Malcolm Delaney is the next man up in Atlanta and is worth a short-term look for PG-needy owners.

Dennis Schroder (left foot/ankle) will have an MRI on Monday and he's doubtful to play vs. the Heat in Miami.

Schroder "likely" has a bone bruise in his foot, according to Adam Zagoria, but he's optimistic that he'll be ready for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls. Malcolm Delaney would likely start on Monday if Schroder is out, but he's just a streaming and DFS play until the MRI results are disclosed.

Dennis Schroder rolled his left ankle during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game in Brooklyn and did not return.

Schroder was in some very obvious pain, and unable to put any pressure at all on his left foot on the way back to the locker room, so he's almost assuredly looking at a multi-game absence here. He struggled mightily to find his shot in Sunday's matinee, finishing with 17 points on 5-of-22 shooting (7-of-7 from the stripe), eight assists, four boards, two steals and two turnovers in 31 minutes. If he does need to miss time, Malcolm Delaney will likely be logging heavy minutes as a starter, and he's on the radar as a potential speculative add in deep leagues.
Oct 22 - 6:12 PM

Dennis Schroder's 25 points weren't enough in Friday's 109-91 loss to the Hornets.

He kept his foot on the gas after a 28-point opener, hitting 11-of-21 from the field with five assists, three rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in 32 minutes. The Hawks may not be very good this season, but Schroder has no real competition for minutes and should easily have a career year. He couldn't ask for a better matchup on Sunday vs. Brooklyn.
Oct 20 - 10:00 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 28 points with two rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.

His usage splits were a lot higher while Paul Millsap was on the bench last year and he saw a nice increase during the preseason, so making 13-of-26 from the field really isn't a surprise. He shredded the Mavs defense with plenty of drives and he'll be asked to lead this team in scoring. Schroder may have nights when he misses a number of shots, but Schroder could have a career season.
Oct 19 - 1:41 AM

The Hawks released a statement regarding Dennis Schroder's alleged involvement in a physical altercation on September 29, saying they will discipline him at the "appropriate time."

"From our preliminary findings, we are aware that Dennis was involved in a physical altercation," read the statement from Hawks' GM Travis Schlenk. "That behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated by the Hawks organization, and will result in discipline for Dennis at the appropriate time." The Hawks could serve Schroder with a suspension in addition to a hefty fine, but they won't be disciplining him until the legal process has concluded, so he should be fine for opening night.
Oct 16 - 5:20 PM

Dennis Schroder made 2-of-10 from the field for nine points with one rebound, one assist and one steal in just 18 minutes.

That's a wrap for Schroder's preseason, making 23-of-59 (39.0 percent) from the field. As expected his usage went up considerably and he is taking more 3-pointers, so he may be missing a lot of shots this season. If you're OK with subpar field goal percentage, Schroder could put up some very nice stat lines as he attempts to carry this offense.
Oct 12 - 8:57 PM

Dennis Schroder scored a game-high 21 points and added five rebounds and four assists in a win over the Grizzlies on Monday.

With Atlanta having gutted its roster over the offseason, Schroder is the only reliable scorer on the squad. He will be the focal point of the Hawks offense and should put up big (if inefficient) numbers on a nightly basis. However, one issue to keep an eye on with Schroder is his pending legal issues, as he was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge last Thursday.
Oct 10 - 10:18 AM

Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore and Marco Belinelli will not play against the Pistons on Friday.

Presumably, this is just rest for the veteran players. Schroder is taking a ton of 3-pointers this month, so his field goal percentage could be brutal this year. Still, his upside is there in fantasy leagues, especially if you don't care about efficiency.
Oct 6 - 5:50 PM

Dennis Schroder set aside his recent legal woes to score 12 points with five assists, four rebounds and one steal on Sunday.

He logged 22 minutes without any turnovers, and even his 6-of-17 shooting was indicative of the huge offensive role he should have with Paul Millsap gone this season. He's ascending the ranks of fantasy PGs and may not be available after the middle rounds on draft day.
Oct 1 - 8:51 PM

Dennis Schroder was arrested on a misdemeanor battery charge early Thursday morning.

Schroder has been released on bail. The Hawks released the following statement Friday afternoon: "We are aware of an incident involving Dennis Schröder earlier this morning. We are still gathering information as it pertains to the situation, and out of respect for the legal process, we will have no further comment at this time." We will pass along any updates on the situation as soon as they are provided.
Sep 29 - 12:46 PM

Dennis Schroder netted 27 points on 12-of-23 shooting during Tuesday's loss to Spain, adding eight assists, four rebounds, three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

Schroder did all he could to try and deliver the win for Team Germany, but the talent on Spain's roster was just too much to compete with and Schroder's seven turnovers didn't help much either. Aside from the turnover issues, Schroder played well at the EuroBasket tournament, finishing with averages of 23.7 points, 5.6 assists, 1.7 triples and 1.6 triples per contest on 47.9 percent shooting. He'll be the No. 1 option in Atlanta's offense this upcoming season, so feel free to look his way towards the later rounds on draft day.
Sep 12 - 2:57 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 21 points and dished out eight assists on Saturday in Germany's victory over France.

Schroder has been stellar all tournament long for Germany. Through six games, he is averaging 23.2 points, 5.2 assists, 2.3 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.5 3-pointers. However, one issue has been ball security, as he's currently averaging 4.3 turnovers per contest. Schroder finished 108th overall in standard fantasy leagues last season, but should be able to leap inside the top-100 in 2017-18, as the focal point of the Atlanta offense.
Sep 9 - 12:42 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 26 points on 10-of-17 shooting in an 89-72 loss to Lithuania on Wednesday, adding two 3-pointers, three assists, three steals and two turnovers in 28 minutes.

While Germany suffered their second loss of pool play today, the team did enough with a record of 3-2 to advance to the single elimination round of the 24-team tournament. Schroder has lead the charge for Team Germany, and currently sits in the No. 2 spot in scoring through five games of tournament play at 23.6 points per contest to go with averages of 4.6 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.8 triples and 4.8 turnovers a night on 50.7 percent shooting.
