Player News - Hawks

Date: Team: Pos:

Pero Antic was rested during Saturday's game vs. the Heat because he suffered a knee injury in a collision during Friday's game vs. the Magic.

He has a very limited role off the bench and is averaging just 5.5 points and 3.0 boards in 16.3 minutes per game this season, so this news doesn't have a lot of fantasy implications. The Hawks are off until Tuesday against the Rockets, so we should be able to provide another update soon.
Mar 1 - 10:20 AM

Mike Muscala was assigned to the NBA D-League on Sunday.

He is not currently in the rotation in Atlanta and isn't likely going to have any fantasy value this season. Leave Muscala on the wire.
Mar 1 - 10:17 AM

After sitting out of Saturday's game vs. the Heat, Jeff Teague was seen getting treatment on his hamstring at practice on Sunday.

There is no word on how severe the injury is, but good news is that the Hawks don't play again until Tuesday vs. the Rockets, so there is plenty of time for him to recover. Dennis Schroder, who is coming off a 16-point, 10-assist performance vs. the Heat, will continue to be the primary beneficiary if Teague misses more time. We will continue to monitor Teague's status closely in the coming days and will pass along any additional updates.
Mar 1 - 10:10 AM

Dennis Schroder helped allow the Hawks rest three of their starters and still pull out a 93-91 win in Miami on Saturday, scoring 16 points with four rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

The Hawks have won all the games in which Jeff Teague misses, which is a huge credit to Schroder. Since summer league he has shown he's capable of being a starting point guard for several teams. In his previous starts, Schroder averaged 11.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 0.6 steals. He's a strong start when Teague sits, but the All-Star should be ready for action on Tuesday.
Feb 28 - 10:22 PM

Kent Bazemore scored 15 points in a start against the Heat on Saturday with two rebounds, one assist, three steals and two 3-pointers.

The Hawks rested DeMarre Carroll and Thabo Sefolosha (calf) is not close to a return, so Bazemore had a big chance tonight. Carroll should be ready to go for next week, which means Bazemore can stay on the wire in most formats.
Feb 28 - 10:19 PM

Paul Millsap scored 22 points against the Heat on Saturday with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

His fantasy owners will want to keep their eyes peeled for an upcoming DNP due to rest. Looking at the schedule, the Hawks have another back-to-back coming up next Friday and Saturday, so Millsap owners will want to be on alert there. Millsap continues to stuff the stat sheet, but he's actually only been a mid-round guy since the break because of his struggles at the line recently. He's a top-25 player going forward.
Feb 28 - 10:18 PM

Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore and Elton Brand will start against the Heat on Saturday.

Schroder is likely going to share some of his minutes with Shelvin Mack, but he's still a very nice play considering his per-minute output. Mack is also worth a look if you need points and treys.
Feb 28 - 6:18 PM

Pero Antic will not play against the Heat on Saturday.

It's a little surprising to see the Hawks rest a guy who is only playing 16.3 minutes per game, but Antic is 32. He can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
Feb 28 - 6:16 PM

DeMarre Carroll will not play against the Heat on Saturday.

He is just getting some rest, which the Hawks also did back in January. With Carroll out, we should see a little more of Kent Bazemore on the wing, especially with Thabo Sefoloha (calf) out.
Feb 28 - 6:15 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford will not play against the Heat on Saturday.

He is not at the arena and is just getting the night off. Horford has been very healthy this season and the team wants to keep it that way. Elton Brand will start, but there should be more of Mike Scott and Mike Muscala.
Feb 28 - 6:13 PM

Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll, Al Horford and Pero Antic will not play against the Heat on Saturday.

It's the second time the Hawks have rested their starters this season and they should be ready for next week. Get all of these guys out of your lineup. Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore, Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap and Elton Brand will start.
Feb 28 - 6:10 PM

Paul Millsap scored 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting (including four threes) with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in the Hawks' 95-88 win over the Magic on Friday.

Not only are the Hawks fun to watch but Mike Budenholzer is all about a nice, tight fantasy rotation. DeMarre Carroll added 15 points, three treys, eight boards, two assists and three steals, Al Horford went for 17 and 13 with four assists and two steals, Jeff Teague went for 17 and seven, and Kyle Korver hit 2-of-5 shots (all threes) for eight points, three boards, one steal and two blocks in the win.
Feb 28 - 12:26 AM

Jeff Teague hit just 3-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, three rebounds, four assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Mavs.

Teague didn't have it tonight and Dennis Schroder picked up his slack. Look for Teague to get it going again on Friday against the Magic. He came in dealing with an illness, but he hasn't looked like himself for a couple weeks now, averaging just 11.2 points and 4.2 assists over his last five games.
Feb 25 - 11:03 PM

Kyle Korver hit 6-of-12 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, six rebounds, three assists and two blocks on Wednesday.

Korver was the best starter on the floor tonight for Atlanta and remains one of the deadliest shooters in the league. And when he's blocking shots and rebounding, he's even more fun to own.
Feb 25 - 11:01 PM

Dennis Schroder came off the bench to hit 7-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers for 17 points and four assists in Wednesday's comeback win over the Hawks.

He was named the player of the game by the Hawks broadcast crew, as he came through on a night when Jeff Teague couldn't get it going. There's little doubt that Schroder's a good player, but as long as he's stuck behind Teague, he's not going to be consistent enough to use in fantasy.
