Dennis Schroder was benched for the final 8:14 of Sunday's loss to the Knicks.
Schroder led the Hawks with a team-high 21 points, but he only played 22 minutes on the night and was clearly frustrated with his benching after the game. "You’ve got to ask Coach and then let me know," Schroder said. "I’m supposed to be out there but it didn’t happen. So, that’s it." Coach Mike Budenholzer said it was a "coach’s decision" to leave him on the sidelines, but this is pretty concerning because he and Schroder have clashed in the past. Dec 11 - 9:44 AM

Dennis Schroder scored 21 points in just 22 minutes on Sunday, hitting 9-of-14 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with three assists, one rebound and two turnovers.

Schroder picked up his second foul after getting caught on Kristaps Porzingis halfway through the first quarter, which forced an early exit. He bounced in and out of the game due to fouls until the fourth quarter, at which point he was benched.
Dec 10 - 11:33 PM

Dennis Schroder needed 26 shots to score 26 points on Wednesday, making 10 of his attempts with seven assists, five rebounds and two steals in 39 minutes.

Schroder said last week that he wants to become a better defender so that teammates "can see it and try to follow [his] lead." He came into this game with Atlanta's worst defensive rating at 114.0, and clearly still has a ways to go in that department -- for fantasy purposes, it doesn't help that he's blocked zero shots in 712 minutes. That issue aside, he's holding steady as a mid-round PG.
Dec 6 - 11:04 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 24 points with three rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer during a 114-102 win over the Nets on Saturday.

The Hawks have a rag-tag frontcourt right now and it'll be up to Schroder to carry the offense most nights. Schroder isn't taking as many 3-pointers these days, but that's not the worst thing based on how he's only a 33.3 percent shooter from deep this season. He's turning the ball over a bunch, but he 's shot the ball better than expected and is a top-50 player in eight-cat leagues.
Dec 2 - 6:07 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 27 points (11-of-19 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) in Thursday's 121-114 loss to Cleveland, adding five assists, two boards and one triple in 33 minutes.

Schroder was getting whatever he wanted for most of the night and forced the Cavs to bench Jose Calderon at halftime. He's playing with an underwhelming supporting cast and his efficiency was a concern prior to the season, but he's on pace to set career-highs in field goal and free throw percentage in addition to points, assists, steals. He's the real deal and the Hawks will be rebuilding around him, John Collins, Taurean Prince and DeAndre Bembry for many years to come.
Nov 30 - 11:01 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 26 points with two rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Knicks during a 116-104 win on Friday.

His season 29.8 usage rate hasn't hurt him at all as he sits at 45.5 percent from the field. A big reason why is he's improved his jump shot to 41.8 percent despite being unassisted in 71.6 percent on those makes. Schroder's season averages are all up except for rebounds and blocks, so he hasn't skipped a beat despite not much help around him.
Nov 24 - 11:40 PM

The Hawks won their first home game of the season on Wednesday, aided by Dennis Schroder's 21 points, eight assists and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

The Hawks still have the East's worst record at 3-12, and they beat a moribund Kings team tonight, but they'll take what they can get. Schroder would have had a bigger line if it weren't for garbage time, and at least he'll be well rested for Saturday's game vs. Boston.
Nov 15 - 10:23 PM

Dennis Schroder hit just 5-of-18 shots and missed all four of his 3-pointers for 11 points, two rebounds, five assists and two steals in 33 minutes of Monday's 106-105 loss to the Pelicans.

Schroder's shot is broken right now, as he's hit just 7-of-34 shots over his last two games and is 0-for-9 from downtown in his last three. He'll get back on track soon enough, but he got his fantasy owners off to a rough start in this one. He had scored at least 16 points in every game this season until Saturday's seven-point dud, and had his second lowest scoring total with tonight's 11.
Nov 13 - 10:45 PM

Dennis Schroder made 2-of-16 from the field for seven points during a 113-94 loss to the Wizards on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, five assists and four turnovers in 31 minutes.

He actually did damage against the Wizards in the playoffs last year with 24.7 points per game in those six games, but Schroder has typically struggled in back-to-back sets. That issue aside, he's going to be among the league leaders in usage rate and should have some big lines this year.
Nov 11 - 9:44 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 17 points during a 111-104 loss to the Pistons on Friday, adding four rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and three turnovers in 36 minutes.

The Hawks are going small a lot more and have run a lot of two-PG lineups. This won't really affect Schroder at all and the Hawks just need to keep games close for him to turn in solid stat lines, assuming he avoids inefficient shooting lines.
Nov 10 - 9:38 PM

Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore, Taurean Prince, Luke Babbitt and Dewayne Dedmon will start against the Pistons on Friday.

The Hawks are expected to have Malcolm Delaney and Marco Belinelli off the bench. Schroder has been probable in every game since he returned from an ankle sprain on Oct. 27.
Nov 10 - 6:44 PM

Dennis Schroder (ankle), Malcolm Delaney (ankle) and Marco Belinelli (Achilles) are all probable to play agains the Pistons on Friday.

The Hawks continue to list their guys as probable, but all three should be in the lineup and not have limitations. Schroder's usage rate is all the way up to 30.5 this season and the Hawks are playing at a faster pace overall, so he's getting a lot of opportunity.
Nov 9 - 5:41 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 23 points and hit 9-of-20 shots and 2-of-2 free throws in Monday's loss to Boston, adding six assists, two rebounds, two steals, three 3-pointers and two turnovers.

Schroder was listed as probable for the sixth straight game tonight which suggests he may still have some soreness in his ankle, but he'll have plenty of time to rest with the Hawks off until Friday. Schroder is having a career year in Atlanta as the engine of the offense and is ranked 5th in the NBA in touches per game.
Nov 6 - 11:05 PM

Dennis Schroder (ankle), Marco Belinelli (Achilles) and Malcolm Delaney (ankle) will play Monday vs. Boston.

Schroder has been listed as probable in five straight games and continues to get out there, and the same goes for Belinelli, so this isn't surprising at all. Delaney will be returning from a two-game absence, which isn't great news for Isaiah Taylor. Feel free to get these guys active.
Nov 6 - 6:00 PM

Dennis Schroder (ankle) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Celtics.

He's been probable for five straight games since missing two games in late October, but it wouldn't hurt to double check his status since tonight is the second game of a back-to-back set.
