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.

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.

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.
Sep 6 - 1:42 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 17 points on 5-of-12 shooting during Tuesday's win over Italy, adding four assists, one rebound, one steal, one block and an unfortunate six turnovers in 31 minutes.

Efficiency and turnover issues are a constant hindrance to Schroder's fantasy game, and now through four games at EuroBasket, he's established himself as the tournament leader in turnovers at 5.5 per contest. He also tends to struggle to bring the defensive stats to the table, so while he has a decent shot of improving as a scorer and dime dropper this upcoming season, it could be tough for him to approach the top-50 equation if he doesn't improve those other aspects of his game.
Sep 5 - 5:05 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 20 points on 6-of-13 shooting during Sunday's loss to Israel, adding seven assists, three steals and four turnovers in 27 minutes.

Schroder is coming off a career-year in which he produced averages of 17.9 points, 6.3 assists, 1.3 triples, 0.9 steals and 3.3 turnovers per game on 45.1 percent shooting, which was good enough for ninth-round value in standard 9-cat leagues. He should see an uptick in scoring and dimes this upcoming season with Paul Millsap, Dwight Howard and Tim Hardaway Jr. no longer a part of the picture, but he'll need to really improve the defensive stats to have a chance at sniffing top-50 value.
Sep 3 - 4:42 PM

Dennis Schroder went off for 32 points in Germany's 75-63 win over the Ukraine.

He left the German hotel after midnight on Tuesday to get some extra shots up and it paid dividends, as Schroder buried five triples in the win with seven assists and five rebounds. With Paul Millsap and Tim Hardaway Jr. gone, Schroder will be the engine of Atlanta's offense and is poised for a career year. He's a career 43.3 percent shooter from the field, but his ceiling would raise significantly in fantasy if he keeps developing his jumper and keeps his turnovers in check.
Aug 31 - 12:12 PM

Dennis Schroder left the German team hotel Tuesday night for a workout and was shooting past midnight.

He's apparently putting in a lot of work and he is ticketed for a big role next season. Schroder had a 30.7 usage rate in his minutes without Paul Millsap, and it's not outlandish to think he could clear 30 on a thin Hawks roster. He figures to have some inefficiency as a scorer, but his upside is high for DFS and in season-long leagues, especially if you're punting field goal percentage.
Aug 30 - 5:53 PM

Dennis Schroder said he will play for Germany at Eurobasket this summer.

"I will definitely play this summer. Listening to the German anthem is a great feeling. I did not hear it for a long time and it is time to listen to it again," Schroder said. Schroder had an up-and-down regular season as the Hawks starting point guard in 2016-17, but stepped up in the postseason, averaging 24.7 points, 7.7 assists and 2.8 treys, while shooting 45.5 percent from the floor and 42.5 percent from downtown.
May 30 - 11:05 AM

Dennis Schroder said he believes the Hawks need to do a better job incorporating Dwight Howard into the team's offense next season.

Schroder was a stud in the postseason, averaging 24.7 points and 7.7 assists (versus just 1.7 turnovers) in Atlanta's six-game series against Washington. However, Howard averaged just 8.0 points. "It’s different when Dwight is on the floor. It was different with Al Horford," said Schroder. "We have to switch up the system a little bit. We have to get reps. We have to be together for a while... On the defensive end, he has to show more effort, I have to show more effort. On the offensive end, the same thing."
