DeMarre Carroll hit 2-of-5 shots for six points, three rebounds and three assists in 22 minutes on Wednesday.

He's starting, but hasn't looked all that great this preseason. He's cracked double figures in just two of his six games this preseason and with Al Horford back, could be a fantasy let down this season.
Oct 22 - 11:54 PM

Mike Scott hit 8-of-8 shots and 2-of-2 3-pointers for 19 points and four rebounds in 21 minutes on Wednesday.

Scott will have some nice games, but as long as Al Horford and Paul Millsap are healthy, he's not going to get enough minutes to help out the average fantasy team.
Oct 22 - 11:43 PM

Kyle Korver hit 6-of-11 shots (all 3-pointers) for 18 points, one rebound, two assists and a block in Wednesday's win.

If Korver can stay healthy, he could have a better season than he had last year. Threes are his middle name, but he also comes through with some decent boards and the occasional block.
Oct 22 - 11:40 PM

Jeff Teague hit 8-of-12 shots and two 3-pointers for 21 points, one assist and two steals in Wednesday's win over the Spurs.

Teague doesn't get the love the big-named point guards do, and for good reason. But when it comes to that second tier of point guards, he's going to possibly finish near the top of the list. And if he continues to improve, he could end up being consistent enough to battle a guy like Kyle Lowry for productivity. But he has a long way to go before that happens. The return of Al Horford should help Teague start to take that next step.
Oct 22 - 11:37 PM

Paul Millsap hit 3-of-6 shots and 9-of-10 free throws for 15 points, eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in Wednesday's win over the Spurs.

Millsap's assists and 3-pointers put him above most other power forwards in the league and he's primed for a monster season. He didn't have a 3-pointer or a block tonight, but they're coming. Millsap will be the second-round pick for a ton of owners this season, and they should feel rock-solid about taking him there.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford played 27 minutes and had 10 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals on Wednesday.

This looks a lot better than his 11-minute preseason debut on Oct. 15, but is still a far cry from what his owners are hoping for from him this season. His shoulder will remain a concern going forward, but once he's gets a few weeks of action under his belt, he should start looking like the Horford we remember from before his injuries.
Oct 22 - 11:22 PM

Hawks waive C Dexter Pittman.

Pittman, who won a championship with the Heat in 2011-12, was never expected to make Atlanta's final roster. He played nine minutes in his lone preseason appearance and will likely spend his days overseas or in the D-League this year.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford played 24 minutes in the Hawks' 117-114 overtime win in Monday's exhibition against the Hornets, scoring 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with six rebounds and one steal.

Horford continues to slowly ramp up his minutes and if all goes well he'll be able to show he's 100 percent healthy at some point this week. Expecting him to roll right into his top-end productivity levels is a bit optimistic, but he should settle in eventually and secure early round value.
Oct 21 - 12:09 AM

Jeff Teague double-doubled in Saturday's 104-100 loss to the Pistons with 16 points, 10 assists, four rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

He's a different player with Al Horford out there, so he should have a nice bounce-back season. Teague is a very strong No. 2 point guard and is capable of being a top-10 guy for his position.
Oct 18 - 11:31 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford played 21 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday, scoring 12 points with six boards, four assists, two steals and one block.

His minutes are steadily rising and he should be close to 100 percent for the regular season. If Horford stays healthy, he could be a first-round asset. He shouldn't go past 30 in your draft and there's nothing wrong with taking him in the teens.
Oct 18 - 11:29 PM

Paul Millsap made 1-of-11 from the field and 3-of-10 from the line for five points, seven boards, six assists, two steals and one turnover against the Pistons on Saturday.

He did fill up the stat sheet, but this is a shooting line that may have made Brandon Jennings feel better about himself. This dud was good for a true shooting percentage of 16.2, but who cares? Millsap is a fantasy stud and is definitely capable of being a top-25 player.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford is feeling more confident on the court after two preseason games.

"The second game I definitely had a breakthrough against the Bulls," Horford said Friday. "Mentally, I was in a much better place because I was more comfortable. The first game I was more tentative." The plan for Horford is to continue to play the remainder of the preseason in order to increase his game conditioning. It may take some time for Horford to dust off some of the rust, after spending most of last season on the sidelines, but his upside is first-round value.
Oct 17 - 4:06 PM

Paul Millsap did not play on Thursday against the Bulls.

No injury was reported and he likely just got the night off after a stellar 23-point Tuesday. Millsap's usage was a little lower while Al Horford was active last season, but he was more efficient. Fantasy owners should target him around the turn of the second and third rounds.
Oct 17 - 9:41 AM

Dennis Schroder started and played 28 minutes at point guard on Thursday with 11 points, four rebounds, six assists and one block.

He's going to split the backup duties with Shelvin Mack (four points and two assists in 20 minutes), so he'll need a lot of things to happen to have fantasy value. Schroder is still a couple years away from being a regular contributor.
Oct 17 - 12:05 AM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford played 16 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday with four points, six boards, two assists and one steal.

He played 11 minutes in his debut on Tuesday and his minutes will likely rise leading up to start the season. Horford was putting up first-round value before his injury last season, so he's worth a look late in the second round if you're feeling saucy. He shouldn't slip out of the third round in any league.
