Player News - Hawks

Date: Team: Pos:

The Hawks assigned DeAndre Bembry to the NBA Development League on Saturday.

Bembry will play Sunday at the Sioux Falls Skyforce. He will then return to the Hawks. Bembry remained in Milwaukee following the Hawks’ 114-110 win over the Bucks before he departed for Sioux Falls. It will be the second one-game D-League stint for Bembry. He also played for the Stars on Dec. 2 and in a game at the Los Angeles D-Fender and had a game-high 35 points. Bembry was 16 of 22 from the field with six rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block in 35 minutes. Bembry is not in the Hawks rotation and thus does not have fantasy relevance.
Dec 10 - 9:23 AM

Thabo Sefolosha scored eight points on 3-of-9 shooting with six rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and one turnover in 29 minutes against the Bucks on Friday.

The blocks were a little fluky, but the steals weren't as he was averaging 2.1 steals per game prior to Friday. He missed all four of his triples this time around, but he's played at least 29 minutes in his last three games since moving into the starting five. He should be able to hold onto low-end value as long he continues to start.
Dec 9 - 11:33 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (knee) started and scored 18 points on 6-of-17 shooting on Friday vs. the Bucks.

Making his second straight start in place of Kent Bazemore (knee), THJ added four rebounds, four assists, one steal, three triples and three turnovers in 31 minutes. We'd like to be more excited about this line, but he only had seven points in his previous start and Bazemore could be back for the next game on Tuesday vs. the Hawks.
Dec 9 - 11:28 PM

Paul Millsap (hip) scored 23 points (8-of-15 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs) with 14 rebounds, six assists, one steal, three blocks and one 3-pointer in Friday's win over the Bucks.

Wait, he's not 100 percent? Since returning from a three-game absence, Millsap is averaging 22.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 2.0 blocks, 2.7 steals and 0.7 triples in his last three games. The buy-low window is officially closed and the All-Star PF now gets four days to rest before the Hawks take on the Magic on Tuesday.
Dec 9 - 11:23 PM

Dennis Schroder scored a career-high 33 points on 12-of-19 shooting in Friday's 114-110 win over the Bucks.

Maybe he got tired of all the talk about his backup, Malcolm Delaney. Schroder has been a beast lately, scoring 15+ points in seven straight games and shooting above 50 percent in all but one of them. He played a season-high 40 minutes in the win and even logged some minutes next to Delaney with Kent Bazemore (knee) on the shelf. His slow start to the season is behind him and he will try to help the Hawks win their third straight game on Tuesday vs. Orlando.
Dec 9 - 11:17 PM

Mike Scott has been recalled from the D-League.

He played for the Delaware team and scored 13 points in the win. Scott will be available to play tonight against the Bucks, but won't have much fantasy value.
Dec 9 - 4:06 PM

Paul Millsap (hip) will play Friday vs. the Bucks.

Millsap has played in two straight games and looked good doing so, averaging 22.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.5 steals and 1.5 blocks. Millsap admitted earlier this week that he is currently playing through pain, but should obviously still be locked into starting lineups.
Dec 9 - 1:04 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (knee) will play and start Friday in Milwaukee.

Hardaway banged his knee on Wednesday bit appears to have avoided even a minor injury. With Kent Bazemore (knee) sidelined, Hardaway will start at shooting guard for Atlanta. THJ has scored in double-figures in five of Atlanta's last six games, but brings little to the table besides points.
Dec 9 - 12:15 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (knee) is not on the injury report for Friday.

He banged knees with Goran Dragic and it sounds like he's ready to go. Hardaway Jr. should be looking at some extra minutes on Friday with Kent Bazemore (knee) out again, but he's not going to do too much besides scoring. He's worth a look in DFS.
Dec 8 - 5:22 PM

Paul Millsap (left hip soreness) is probable for Friday against the Bucks.

Millsap has said he has to fight through the pain of his current injury, but he's fully expected to play. He looked good on Wednesday with 21 points and a full line on Wednesday.
Dec 8 - 5:07 PM

Dwight Howard recovered from a lousy game on Monday, finishing a much-needed win vs. the Heat with 23 points (9-of-11 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), 17 rebounds, four assists, two blocks, one steal and one turnover.

Dwight has sprinkled some duds throughout his first season with the Hawks, but overall he's given fantasy owners all they could ask for. He's missed just one game this year and is averaging a solid 13.3 points, 12.5 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.5 blocks.
Dec 7 - 11:00 PM

Kyle Korver helped the Hawks snap their seven-game losing skid on Wednesday with nine points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds and five assists in 34 minutes off the bench.

The veteran SG has taken his recent benching in stride, saying he was "fine" with coach Mike Budenholzer's decision to start Thabo Sefolosha. The move may have lit a fire under him, as he's averaging 12.0 points, 2.5 triples, 4.5 assists and 1.0 steals in his new role. If you've held onto him despite his slow start this year, there's no reason to quit on him now.
Dec 7 - 10:59 PM

Thabo Sefolosha fared well in another start on Wednesday, scoring 10 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal and zero turnovers in 29 minutes.

Thabo has taken over for Kyle Korver, and the fact that Atlanta snapped their seven-game win streak tonight means that Sefolosha is likely to keep the job. His assists tonight tied a season high (from opening night), but he's still little more than a steals specialist who won't hurt you anywhere.
Dec 7 - 10:58 PM

Paul Millsap (hip) scored 21 points on 8-of-12 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs during Wednesday's 103-95 win vs. the Heat, adding nine boards, two assists, four steals and three blocks in 32 minutes.

Millsap admitted before the game that his hip still hurts, saying that he's "just playing through and seeing what happens. Hopefully, getting better." That's not entirely encouraging for fantasy owners, but tonight's vintage-Sapper production was a terrific indication that he's feeling better. There's no reason to think he's in imminent danger of missing games.
Dec 7 - 10:57 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. filled in as a starter on Wednesday but he exited in the second half after he "banged" his knee, according to coach Mike Budenholzer.

Hardaway didn't return after limping into the locker room in the second half, finishing with seven points and two assists in 22 minutes. Kent Bazemore (knee) will miss at least one more game, giving Hardaway a temporary window for increased production, but that won't matter unless he's healthy. We should have an update after Thursday's shootaround.
