Dennis Schroder implied during a recent interview that he's not on the same page with Atlanta management.
"I don't know what the organization has in mind," said Schroder. "That's why I'm going back in a week [to meet with management]. Of course, Atlanta is my city... but I have to look individually what's best for me... I will be 25 in September and of course, I want to win a title sometime. In my prime, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, I want to compete. I cannot be the second to last team in the Eastern Conference." Schroder also said it "wouldn't be too bad" to play for the Pacers or Bucks, so it'll be interesting to see what comes out of his upcoming meeting with management. May 14 - 4:47 PM

The Hawks have reportedly narrowed their search for a head coach to four candidates, including Blazers assistant Nate Tibbetts.

The other remaining candidates are Lloyd Pierce, Stephen Silas and Jay Larranaga, all of whom are current assistants for other teams -- the Sixers, Hornets and Celtics, respectively. Hawks principal owner Tony Ressler has interviewed Tibbetts and will reportedly meet with Pierce early this week, with ESPN reporting that a positive meeting "will likely catapult him into a job offer." It shouldn't take much longer for Atlanta to fill their vacant position.
May 6 - 7:56 PM

The Hawks interviewed Lloyd Pierce for their head coaching position on Saturday.

Pierce has been an assistant coach with the 76ers for a few years and has also had stints with the Cavs, Warriors and Grizzlies. Pierce joins a growing list of candidates that includes Jay Larranaga, Stephen Silas, Jarron Collins, James Borrego, Ime Udoka and Nate Tibbetts. The Hawks aren't exactly in win-now mode, so hiring a coach with an emphasis on player development will likely be a priority.

An MRI on Friday revealed Dennis Schroder has a Grade 2 ankle sprain and he will be out for the rest of the season.

He also has a bone bruise on his ankle. It's a little surprising that Schroder was originally able to return from this issue last weekend, but the Hawks waited until today to check on the severity. His season ends with career highs in points and steals over 67 games. The Hawks will looking at the lottery and Isaiah Taylor will be at the point. He needs to be owned in all leagues.
Mar 30 - 7:28 PM

Dennis Schroder (ankle) will not play vs. the 76ers on Friday.

That'll make it a full week out after Schroder did return from his ankle tweak on Friday night. With him out, Isaiah Taylor has looked the part of a score-first PG with 23.0 points per game over his last two while getting to the line a good amount. He's pretty much a must-own player at this point.
Mar 30 - 5:50 PM

Dennis Schroder (ankle) is doubtful to play against the 76ers on Friday.

This is all from what looked like a minor ankle injury against the Warriors last weekend, which he did return from. This is also a home game for the Hawks, so not playing in the ATL speaks volumes. At this point, it feels like Isaiah Taylor should be owned in standard leagues.
Mar 29 - 4:47 PM

Dennis Schroder (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

This will be Schroder's second straight game on the sidelines with the ankle issue, suggesting that his absence from Sunday's game (the second of a back-to-back) was more than just a precautionary move. The Hawks have zero incentive to play Schroder at anything less than 100%, so he could miss Friday's game as well and is a cut-candidate if your league ends at Week-24. Isaiah Taylor figures to earn another start, and he's worth a long look in most leagues.
Mar 27 - 6:15 PM

Dennis Schroder (ankle) will not play vs. Houston on Sunday, with Isaiah Taylor taking his spot in the starting lineup.

Schroder injured his left ankle vs. Golden State on Friday, and the Hawks have no incentive to take risks with him. We should have more details soon regarding the severity of the injury, and for now we're considering him day-to-day. In the meantime, owners should view Taylor as a reasonable streaming and DFS play.
Mar 25 - 6:39 PM

Dennis Schroder (ankle) finished with 16 points across 29 minutes in Friday's loss at Golden State.

Schroder left the game due to a left ankle injury, but he was able to return and finish up. At this point he might be a bit of a question mark for Sunday's game in Houston just in case there is swelling, etc. Isaiah Taylor would benefit the most if Schroder is held out or limited against the Rockets.
Mar 24 - 2:31 AM

Dennis Schroder (ankle) returned to action in the fourth quarter on Friday.

We'll see if his ankle swells up on him, but for now Schroder could be OK. Isaiah Taylor may still be worth a pickup just because it's very likely Schroder gets 1-3 games off the rest of the way.
Mar 24 - 12:34 AM

Dennis Schroder (left ankle) went to the locker room in the fourth quarter on Friday.

Not a great night for left ankles of PGs in Oakland. Schroder planted his left foot and his ankle just turned over on its own. He had the training staff around him for a couple minutes and was in pain on the floor. Isaiah Taylor is going to be busy tonight and possibly for the foreseeable future, so he's a solid add if you need a PG.
Mar 24 - 12:23 AM

Dennis Schroder is not on the injury report for Friday against the Warriors.

He got the night off on the front end of a back-to-back set against the Kings, and it worked out because the Hawks lost. Schroder should be good for tonight, but still he may be risky in DFS with the late start tonight. Isaiah Taylor should move to the bench.
Mar 23 - 3:29 PM

Dennis Schroder (rest) will not play Thursday against the Kings.

The Hawks pull out their big guns in this tank race, and this really isn't a surprise. Schroder could be at rest to risk any night, especially in a back-to-back set like this one. Isaiah Taylor is going to be very busy tonight.
Mar 22 - 8:50 PM

Dennis Schroder hit 16-of-28 shots, three 3-pointers and 6-of-10 free throws for a career-high 41 points, five rebounds and seven assists in Tuesday's unlikely 99-94 win over the Jazz.

Schroder had his way with Ricky Rubio (who also fared well with 23 points) and had a very efficient game. He missed some big free throws and made a foolish flagrant foul on Rubio late by poking him in the eye, but the Hawks only won this game because of what Schroder was able to do. He's scored in double figures in 10 straight games, but the tanking Hawks need to be careful, as they accidentally tied the Magic tonight for the worst record in the East with the win.
Mar 20 - 11:49 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 18 points (6-of-16 FGs, 5-of-8 FTs) in his return on Tuesday, adding eight assists, two rebounds and one 3-pointer.

Schroder played 33 minutes in a loss vs. the visiting Thunder. He was held to 27 or fewer minutes in five of the seven games prior to Sunday's DNP, so it was nice to see him get above the 30-mark tonight. There's risk involved since Atlanta is incentivized to lose down the stretch, and Schroder did grab his troublesome left elbow late in the game, so we'll keep a close eye on him prior to Thursday's home game. For now, owners can expect to have him available.
