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.

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.
Mar 13 - 10:35 PM

Dennis Schroder (elbow) will play and start at point guard Tuesday vs. OKC.

Schroder was a late scratch in Sunday's loss to the Bulls. As expected, he will return to action Tuesday, as he'd been listed as probable. Isaiah Taylor will get bumped back to the bench. Kent Bazemore (knee) has been ruled out for the season, so Schroder should see an uptick in his usage rate over the Hawks final 15 games.
Mar 13 - 11:49 AM

Dennis Schroder (elbow) is probable to play Tuesday vs. the Thunder.

Schroder was a late scratch on Sunday, which resulted in Isaiah Taylor earning the start, but it looks like Taylor will head back to the bench and irrelevancy in fantasy hoops with Schroder back in action tomorrow. Kent Bazemore (knee) won't play again this season, so Schroder should see a bump in usage moving forward.
Mar 12 - 4:11 PM

Dennis Schroder (elbow) will not play on Sunday vs. the Bulls.

Your move, Chicago. The Hawks are racing several teams to the bottom of the standings to improve their lottery position and the Bulls are one of those teams, so this was pretty easy to see coming. Isaiah Taylor will draw the start and we could see Josh Magette, Tyler Dorsey and Jaylen Morris pick up some extra run with Malcolm Delaney (ankle) also out.
Mar 11 - 1:51 PM

Dennis Schroder (elbow) is questionable to play against the Bulls on Sunday.

Well, it's a tank game against the Bulls and both of these teams have sat players before, so Schroder could definitely miss this one. If he's out, Isaiah Taylor should be in a good position while Jaylen Morris is looking at a career night.
Mar 10 - 4:45 PM

Dennis Schroder played just 24 minutes vs. the Pacers on Friday, scoring 15 points (6-of-14 FGs) with four assists, one rebound, one steal, one triple and six turnovers.

The Hawks were a disaster tonight and no one in the starting lineup did anything notable. Schroder's low minutes were a result of the lopsided score, but at least he wasn't put into coach Mike Budenholzer's doghouse tonight -- Taurean Prince took care of that this time around. The Hawks will face a team on Sunday (Bulls) that they are racing to the bottom of the standings for lottery balls, so it will be interesting to see if they do anything shady (they rested Kent Bazemore vs. the Suns recently).
Mar 9 - 9:58 PM

Dennis Schroder hit just 4-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points, three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 28 minutes of Tuesday's blowout loss to Toronto.

Schroder had been playing well, but never got it going in this one. As long as he's starting for the Hawks, he should be in your fantasy team's starting lineup. He'll try to bounce back on Friday at Indy, but at least he was better than Kyle Lowry tonight.
Mar 6 - 9:47 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 21 points on 9-of-16 shooting Sunday, to go with six rebounds, six assists, two 3-pointers and four turnovers in 24 minutes.

Schroder had the hot hand early for Atlanta and was very aggressive in seeking out his own shot, but he was strangely sent to the bench when the fourth quarter came around and never got back into the game despite Isaiah Taylor getting ejected and Malcolm Delaney leaving with an ankle injury. Schroder didn't appear to suffer an injury during the game, so maybe he did something that put him in Mike Budenholzer's doghouse, which wouldn't be all that surprising.
Mar 4 - 6:45 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 27 points with five rebounds, nine assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

He's been on a roll over his last three games with either strong scoring or his five-steal game on Wednesday. The Hawks only have two more back-to-back sets the rest of the way, so maybe Schroder can avoid the DNPs the rest of the way.
Mar 2 - 10:03 PM

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

He was a surprise DNP-back on Wednesday and there's a good chance Schroder gets a few more games off in the second half, especially in a back-to-back set. For now, fire him up in all leagues while he's active.
Feb 22 - 5:04 PM

Dennis Schroder (back), Ersan Ilyasova (shoulder), Kent Bazemore (rest), Tyler Cavanaugh (right ankle) have all been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons.

The Hawks have begun to shift into 'tank mode,' sitting their two leading scorers the day before the All-Star break begins. Schroder popped up on the injury report with lower back stiffness last week, but hasn't missed a game since before Christmas. With Schroder sidelined, Malcolm Delaney and Isaiah Taylor will divvy up minutes at point guard. Schroder will likely be good to go next week, but could be sporadically rested over the second half of the season.
Feb 14 - 1:04 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 25 points with five rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in a 123-107 loss to the Cavs on Friday.

He was carving up the Cavs in the first half, but the Hawks fell apart in the third quarter to get this game to garbage time. Schroder was called probable for a back issue, but it didn't seem to be bothering him. The Hawks are in the mix for the top spot in the lotto, so hopefully they don't go DNP heavy to finish the season.
Feb 9 - 10:01 PM

Dennis Schroder (lower back tightness) is starting against the Cavs on Friday.

No surprise here with the Hawks listing players as probable all the time. Schroder's minutes should be fine despite the Hawks looking at their youth more often.
Feb 9 - 7:00 PM

Dennis Schroder (lower back tightness) is listed as probable for Friday's game vs. Atlanta.

Schroder was dealing with a shoulder injury last week but never missed a game due to that ailment. He is on track to remain in the lineup on Friday and would be deployed as usual. Just check back prior to tip-off for confirmation that he is good to go.
