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.
Apr 21 - 5:17 PM

The Hawks are hopeful that Dennis Schroder will be ready to play in Game 3 on Friday.

X-rays came back negative after Schroder left Tuesday's win over the Celtics, so that was a piece of good news for the backup point guard. We'll keep an eye on his status after shootaround on Friday, but we'll consider him questionable for now. If Schroder sits, Jeff Teague will see all the minutes he can handle while Kirk Hinrich would slide into the backup role.
Apr 21 - 9:33 AM

Mike Budenholzer said that Dennis Schroder has "made progress" with his ankle injury, and added that it's not something real serious.

X-rays on Schroder's ankle came back negative, and Coach Bud said that he'll have more information on Schroder closer to Friday's tip. For now, we'll be considering him questionable, and if he's unable to give it a go, it'll be Jeff Teague getting all the run he can handle with Kirk Hinrich serving as his primary backup. Stay tuned.
Apr 20 - 1:22 PM

X-rays on Dennis Schroder's ankle came back negative.

This is great news for Atlanta, but he should still be considered questionable for Game 3 on Friday. If Schroder isn't able to play, Jeff Teague will pick up a few more minutes and Kirk Hinrich will take over as the backup PG. Schroder finished with eight points, two rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 20 minutes on Tuesday.
Apr 19 - 10:04 PM

Dennis Schroder left Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics with an ankle injury and did not return.

There was only a minute left in the game when he suffered the injury, so it's unclear if he would've been able to return. He landed awkwardly on his ankle and was in some obvious pain, though he was able to walk under his own power with a slight limp to the locker room. If he needs to miss time, Kirk Hinrich will step into the backup PG role. Schroder finished with eight points, two rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 20 minutes.
Apr 19 - 9:28 PM

Dennis Schroder miss all six shots from the field with one turnover in 11 minutes on Saturday against the Celitcs, finishing with no points and two assists.

He was arguably the worst Hawk on the team today. Schroder does have some nice flashes, but he's also laid some major eggs like today. Jeff Teague has been good in the playoffs, so don't expect Schroder to challenge his minutes.
Apr 16 - 10:32 PM

Dennis Schroder played 14 minutes against the Bucks on Friday with nine points, one assist and two steals.

He is going to be up and down the rest of the way now that Jeff Teague has shown a lot of consistency. Schroder is a risky player to own and his owners shouldn't be too tied to keeping him if a hot free agent is out there. Jeff Teague scored 18 points with one rebound, six assists, one steal and six turnovers in 34 minutes.
Mar 26 - 12:14 AM

Dennis Schroder (ankle) came off the bench for 23 points (7-of-9 FGs, 8-of-9 FTs), eight assists, four rebounds and one steal in just 20 minutes vs. Washington on Wednesday.

Atlanta's backup is a hit-or-miss fantasy option while Jeff Teague is healthy, but tonight he caught fire vs. the Wizards' reserves. Over the past month he's averaging a meager 11.4 points, 0.8 threes, 1.6 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 0.6 steals in 18.4 minutes per game -- until the playing time rises, he'll be an inconsistent play in standard formats.
