Dennis Schroder said that he wants to come back stronger next season, and he'll be spending time this offseason working to become a better finisher at the rim.
"I'll try to be stronger next year and dunk some more balls," Schroder said. "I've got to be better finishing at the rim." Schroder also confirmed that he will be playing for the German National Team again this offseason, as he tries to help the team qualify for the European Championship. Schroder's fantasy value next year will hinder on what happens with Jeff Teague, but if Teague ends up getting traded, Schroder would make for an intriguing late-round gamble in standard leagues.

Dennis Schroder expressed his desire to be a starting point guard in the future.

While Jeff Teague is still standing in his way, he is also entering the last year of his contract and a trade would open the door for Schorder to start. "In the future, I want to be a starting point guard," Schroder said. "Everybody knows it. But I’m in the situation I was this year, I was fine with it. I played my minutes and I just tried to get better. When the coaching staff and everybody decides I get the team, I’m going to be ready for it." We'll keep an eye on this situation, but Schroder's fantasy value will see a huge boost if Teague is traded.

Dennis Schroder is expected to play for the German national team this summer.

Schroder confirmed the expected during his exit interview. He also added that he'd like to be a starting point guard, but said that "when it comes, it comes." Unless Jeff Teague is jettisoned elsewhere, Schroder can't be expected to be an exciting fantasy asset next season. If Teague does wind up with a new team, Schroder's fantasy stock will skyrocket.
May 9 - 1:01 PM

Dennis Schroder was solid off the Hawks bench during Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Cavs, going 10-of-18 from the field on his way to 21 points, six assists, three boards, one 3-pointer, one block, two steals and two turnovers in 26 minutes.

Schroder was the point guard on the floor during crunch time and he was arguably the better point guard for Atlanta through their second-round series. It’ll be interesting to see what the Hawks do with their point guard situation this offseason, but if Schroder remains a reserve to Jeff Teague when the 2016-17 season kicks off, he won’t be worth much more than a late-round flier in standard leagues.
May 8 - 6:46 PM

Dennis Schroder played just 12 minutes against the Cavs on Friday, scoring eight points with two rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers and two turnovers.

Jeff Teague played his best game of the series by far, so coach Mike Budenholzer went with his starter. Schroder still put up some decent stats in the limited playing time, which has been his calling card. He'll be risky the rest of the way.
May 6 - 9:44 PM

Dennis Schroder logged just 18 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, posting 10 points on 4-of-4 shooting with two rebounds, two assists and one turnover.

Schroder led the Hawks' comeback charge in Game 1 of the series but he never got the chance tonight, as Atlanta found themselves on the wrong side of a history-making 3-point barrage. There was no defense for many of the Cavs' 3-point makes in the first half, particularly from J.R. Smith, but the Hawks clearly need to adjust their defensive approach for Game 3. Expect a better showing from Schroder, Teague and Co. at home on Friday.
May 4 - 10:41 PM

Dennis Schroder scored a playoff career-high 27 points against the Cavs on Monday, adding three rebounds, six assists, five 3-pointers and five turnovers in 29 minutes.

Coach Mike Budenholzer went with Schroder in the fourth quarter due to his strong shooting in the first three quarters, but it kind of backfired. Schroder is one of the most Jekyll and Hyde players in the NBA due to how careless he can be at times. He likely won't play this much in Game 2 on Wednesday.
May 2 - 10:02 PM

Dennis Schroder (ankle) will be ready to go for Game 5 on Tuesday, according to head coach Mike Budenholzer.

Schroder is dealing with a balky ankle, but isn't in danger of missing Tuesday night's Game 5 against the Celtics. He had a bit of a letdown in Game 4 with just seven points and is a risky DFS play as long as Jeff Teague is healthy.
Apr 26 - 11:54 AM

Dennis Schroder (ankle) is probable for Tuesday against the Celtics.

He may not be 100 percent, but Schroder should be out there for Game 5. He cooled off in Game 4 with just seven points after a 20-point Game 3.
Apr 25 - 5:14 PM

Dennis Schroder shot just 3-of-13 from the field to finish Game 4 with seven points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

He's become a villain for Celtics' fans and coach Mike Budenholzer cautioned before the game that Schroder is learning how to "be ultra-competitive but always be ultra-classy and ultra-professional." He conceded that he needs to give Schroder "a little leash," but there's no reason to think his role will blossom while Jeff Teague is healthy.
Apr 24 - 9:20 PM

Dennis Schroder (ankle) is probable for Sunday.

He'll be out there. If a player is less than 100 percent, the Hawks tend to throw him on the injury report as probable. Schroder scored a playoff career-high 20 points in Game 3, so he's good to go.
Apr 23 - 5:08 PM

Dennis Schroder didn't have any problems with his ankle on Friday against the Celtics, scoring a playoff career-high 20 points in 22 minutes.

He added one rebound, two assists and two turnovers in the loss. Schroder was a game-time call after spraining his ankle in the last minute of Game 2, but said he was going to play about 70 minutes before tip. Schroder was being a bit of a pest the first half and had to be separated from Isaiah Thomas. He'll be ready to go in Game 4 on Sunday.
Apr 22 - 10:51 PM

Dennis Schroder (ankle) said he will try to play against the Celtics on Friday.

He could still be limited from his ankle injury. Schroder has played 15.5 minutes per game in his two outings this postseason. Jeff Teague is still a high-end play with Schroder at less than 100 percent. Kirk Hinrich may be out of the rotation again.
Apr 22 - 6:50 PM

Dennis Schroder (sprained ankle) went through shootaround and is a game-time call for Game 3 vs. the Celtics on Friday.

X-rays were negative and the injury isn't believed to be serious, but the Hawks will want to see how his ankle responds in the pre-game warmups before making a final decision. If Schroder is held out, Jeff Teague could see a few more minutes and Kirk Hinrich would take over as the backup PG.
Apr 22 - 11:05 AM

Dennis Schroder (sprained ankle) is being listed as questionable for Friday's Game 3 against the Celtics.

Schroder is dealing with nothing more than a sprained ankle, and head coach Mike Budenholzer said that it's not a serious injury, so perhaps he's able to gut it out for Game 3. Check back for another update closer to Friday's tip, and look for Jeff Teague to log major minutes if he's out, with Kirk Hinrich seeing some extended minutes as the backup point guard.
