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

Date:

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.
Feb 9 - 12:31 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 19 points with five rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Magic during a 100-98 loss on Thursday.

There was some talk about Schroder possibly getting traded to Phoenix, but the Hawks and Suns couldn't come to terms. The Hawks are sitting in the No. 1 lottery spot with a lot of bad teams right on their tail, so hopefully this won't affect Schroder's playing time too much. He's obviously still a hold in all leagues and should post mid-round value.
Feb 8 - 9:41 PM

Dennis Schroder scored 22 points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

He did tweak his ankle in the second half, but Schroder stayed in the game after he nodded to his coach that he's OK. The Hawks are "open for business" in the trade market, and maybe there's a chance they can get a taker on Schroder. That doesn't sound likely, so expect him to finish up the season in ATL.
Feb 6 - 9:59 PM

Dennis Schroder had 10 points, six assists, five rebounds and two steals on Sunday, making 6-of-6 free throws while shooting a mere 2-of-16 from the field.

The field-goal percentage was particularly brutal tonight, but Schroder's owners shouldn't be shocked since he's shooting 43.5% on the season. He's making up for it with career-highs in scoring (19.5 points per game), assists (6.4) and steals (1.1), while reining in his turnovers to a reasonable 2.7 per game. His roto value has slipped over the past month but he's still holding mid-round value.
Feb 4 - 4:03 PM

Dennis Schroder played through an ankle issue on Friday vs. Boston, scoring 25 points with three rebounds, one assist, one triple and four turnovers in 30 minutes.

Chris Mannix of NBCS Boston and Yahoo Sports reported before the game that several GMs have told him that "everyone on the roster is available" in Atlanta, so Schroder could be on the block. Schroder is 4th in the NBA in touches per game and is the engine of Atlanta's offense, so a move would likely be bad for his fantasy value. This is firmly in the rumor stage, so his fantasy owners shouldn't do anything too drastic and should be hoping for a quiet deadline.
Feb 2 - 10:16 PM

Dennis Schroder (shoulder) said he's playing against the Celtics on Friday.

We'll see how his shoulder hold up, but apparently everything went well in warmups. Schroder has not played well lately and he was benched at times even before this injury. If he struggles, Malcolm Delaney could see some extra run.
Feb 2 - 6:32 PM

Dennis Schroder (shoulder) is still probable and will be a game-time decision to face the Celtics on Friday.

As long as everything goes OK in warmups, Schroder will be out there. He really battled this injury to his shooting shoulder, so he may have to play through some discomfort. If he's limited, Malcolm Delaney could see more run.
Feb 2 - 6:08 PM

Dennis Schroder (right shoulder) will likely be a game-time decision for Friday's game vs. Boston, but appears to be on track to play.

Schroder injured his shoulder in the first half of Wednesday's game but was able to play through it. He is officially listed as questionable for Friday. Bob Rathbun, the Hawks play-by-play announcer, tweeted out Friday morning that Schroder "will start at the point tonight if all goes well thru pre-game." We will pass along update once it's made public. Malcolm Delaney and Isaiah Taylor will divvy up minutes at PG if Schroder is ruled out.
Feb 2 - 11:37 AM

Dennis Schroder (right shoulder) is questionable to play against the Celtics on Friday.

He was really struggling through a shoulder injury on Wednesday and getting a questionable tag was the expected outcome today. Schroder did return from this issue last night, but he was in obvious pain. If he's out, Malcolm Delaney would be starting with Isaiah Taylor backing him up.
Feb 1 - 4:13 PM

Dennis Schroder was playing through a right shoulder injury on Wednesday, finishing with 13 points, two rebounds, nine assists and one turnover against the Hornets.

Coach Mike Budenholzer said Schroder suffered a sore shoulder on some first-half play tonight, but said even Schroder didn't know exactly when it happened. He had a huge wrap on his shoulder in the fourth, but he did come back out there before it got to garbage time. If he's limited, Malcolm Delaney will benefit. The Hawks play the Celtics on Friday.
Jan 31 - 11:27 PM

Dennis Schroder hit 5-of-15 shots and 8-of-9 free throws for 18 points, 11 assists, two steals, a block and seven turnovers in 34 minutes of Monday's win over the Timberwolves.

He didn't shoot it well, was 0-for-2 from downtown and the turnovers were painful, but he easily outplayed Jeff Teague in this one and helped his team get a win. His shot is broken right now, as he's hit just 13-of-41 shots over his last three games and is 1-of-10 from beyond the arc over that stretch. He'll look to get back on track against the Hornets on Wednesday, but the good news is that he had his fifth double-double of the season tonight.
