Mike Dunleavy scored five points with three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 16 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.
DeAndre Bembry was actually off the bench before Dunleavy today, so that's something to think about once Thabo Sefolosha (groin) comes back. We saw some good game from Dun-Dun earlier, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues. Feb 4 - 9:29 PM

Mike Dunleavy (knee) is listed as probable for Saturday's game vs. the Magic.

Dunleavy injured his right knee Thursday night in a loss to the Rockets. However, it appears it was simply a minor scare. Dunleavy is averaging 6.9 points and 2.7 rebounds in 18.1 minutes over the 12 games he's played in since being traded to Atlanta. He can be left on the waiver wire in standard leagues.

Mike Dunleavy fell awkwardly and suffered a right knee injury on Thursday against the Rockets.

His left foot slipped when he came down and his right knee took the brunt of his weight and didn't react normally. He hobbled to the locker room but was back out on the bench pretty quickly, which is a great sign. The Hawks are down by 18 in the fourth quarter, so Dunleavy's night is almost surely over, but he is eligible to return, according to David Aldridge. It looks like he avoided a serious injury, but we're going to call him day-to-day for now.
Feb 2 - 9:59 PM

Mike Dunleavy played 20 minutes against the Heat on Wednesday with 11 points, six rebounds and one 3-pointer.

He basically stepped into Thabo Sefolosha's (groin) minutes as the first wing off the bench. With Sefolosha hopeful for Thursday, there's little reason to look to Dunleavy in most leagues.
Feb 1 - 10:26 PM

Mike Dunleavy did not score in 19 minutes against the Knicks on Monday, adding three rebounds and one steal.

The minutes were there and he's basically slid right into Kyle Korver's role. Dunleavy is coming off an impressive 20-point on Sunday, but he's really just worth a look in deep leagues.
Jan 16 - 4:33 PM

Mike Dunleavy scored a season-high 20 points vs. the Bucks on Sunday, making 6-of-10 shots with four 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 23 minutes.

Dunleavy also went 4-of-5 at the FT line, but he had a few things working in his favor tonight -- the Hawks played a lot of wing-heavy lineups against a relatively small Bucks team, and more minutes were available with Mike Muscala injuring his ankle after one minute of action. We're very skeptical of Dunleavy, who is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Jan 15 - 7:54 PM

Mike Dunleavy scored six points in his Hawks debut on Friday, adding five rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 15 minutes against the Celtics.

He actually closed this game out and hit a clutch trey. Still, we're not totally sold Dunleavy will stay on the team and get consistent run, so he's only an add in very deep leagues.
Jan 14 - 12:39 AM

Mike Dunleavy said he expects to play on Friday vs. the Celtics.

Dunleavy wasn't planning on joining the Hawks after he was traded from Cleveland, but a phone call from coach Mike Budenholzer changed his mind. Regardless, we don't see Dunleavy playing more than a handful of minutes Friday.
Jan 12 - 1:31 PM

Mike Dunleavy Jr. has reported to Hawks and will take his physical Tuesday afternoon.

The Hawks don't play again until Friday, so Dunleavy is on track to make his debut then. However, the Hawks have plenty of depth on the wing and he'll be competing for minutes with Kent Bazemore, Thabo Sefolosha and Tim Hardaway Jr. Thus, Dunleavy is not expected to make a fantasy impact and can be left on waiver wires.
Jan 10 - 1:51 PM

After having a discussion with head coach Mike Budenholzer about the role he'll have in Atlanta, Mike Dunleavy has agreed to join the Hawks and he'll report for his physical on Tuesday.

Once Dunleavy completes his physical in Atlanta, Kyle Korver will be allowed to suit up for the Cavs, so we could see Korver make his Cleveland debut on Tuesday in Utah. It'll be interesting to see what sort of role Dunleavy has with the Hawks, but it's unlikely he'll be able to carve out much fantasy value at all fighting for minutes with the likes of Kent Bazemore, Thabo Sefolosha and Tim Hardaway Jr. Dunleavy won't play Tuesday, but he could make his Atlanta debut Friday vs. Boston.
Jan 9 - 3:42 PM

The Warriors would reportedly be interested in signing Mike Dunleavy as a free agent if he secures a buyout from the Hawks.

That would make for an interesting reunion as Dunleavy suffered the scorn of many Warriors fans during his early years in the league (he was Golden State's No. 3 overall selection in the 2002 draft, but many fans would have preferred to see their franchise roll the dice on Amare Stoudemire). He's also been linked to the Rockets, but regardless of where Dunleavy winds up, his fantasy value will be non-existent.
Jan 9 - 2:47 PM

Mike Dunleavy has failed to report to the Hawks following the recent Kyle Korver trade, according to ESPN's Marc Spears.

Dunleavy wants a buyout, according to the report, which would free him to sign with a team of his choosing. The Hawks, however, would apparently prefer to keep him on their roster. Atlanta has plenty of younger wing options, but they might view Dunleavy as a rotation player and veteran mentor. The two sides are "working through" the situation, but if it drags on much longer it could potentially endanger Korver's status for Tuesday's game.
Jan 8 - 7:29 PM

Now that the trade has been completed, Mike Dunleavy is expected to join the Hawks soon but will not play for Atlanta on Saturday vs. Dallas.

Dunleavy was also dealing with an ankle sprain earlier this week, but that does not seem to be an issue at this point. The Hawks are rumored to be looking to trade Dunleavy as well, so we don't know where he will end up at this point. Nonetheless, it unlikely he is able to carve out fantasy value no matter where he lands. He can be left on the waiver wire.
Jan 7 - 2:07 PM

In part of the Kyle Korver trade, Mike Dunleavy Jr. will likely moving onto a third team through Atlanta, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Interesting. The Cavs are also likely to send a first-round pick, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN. We'll have more details when this is finalized.
Jan 5 - 8:29 PM

Mike Dunleavy (ankle) was available to play on Wednesday but he picked up a DNP-CD.

The Cavs were already playing without Kevin Love (illness), Kyrie Irving (hamstring) and J.R. Smith (thumb), but coach Ty Lue opted to be safe with Dunleavy tonight. Consider him questionable for Friday's game in Brooklyn.
