Player News - Hawks

Date: Team: Pos:

Paul Millsap rested on Wednesday, but all indications are that he's ready to go for the playoffs.

He's dealing with a sore thumb, but it will take a lot more than that to keep him out of the postseason. If you're in a playoff league, draft him as you normally would.
Apr 17 - 12:05 AM

Mike Scott hit 8-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 17 points, four rebounds, four assists and a steal in Wednesday's meaningless win over the Bucks.

Scott could have some playoff value for the Hawks, but will come off the bench with everyone healthy. DeMarre Carroll scored 13, Jeff Teague had 11, Cartier Martin had 14, Mike Muscala had 15 and Shelvin Mack had 11 points, as the Hawks gave the bench guys some run tonight.
Apr 16 - 11:18 PM

Kyle Korver, Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll, Mike Scott and Pero Antic will start against the Bucks on Wednesday.

The starters will likely have some limited minutes tonight, so fantasy owners might want to watch out for guys like Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver. Mike Scott should still be solid and could have a nice line.
Apr 16 - 6:42 PM

Paul Millsap is expected to rest on Wednesday night against the Bucks, while the rest of the Hawks should be "available."

Mike Scott looks like a good bet for success tonight, but while guys like Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver and Pero Antic are available, that doesn't mean they'll play heavy minutes. Be careful when selecting Hawks in daily lineups.
Apr 16 - 5:53 PM

Pero Antic said on Monday that his sore right ankle continues to bother him, but he will play through the discomfort in the postseason.

Antic had three points and three rebounds in 19 minutes on Monday and there's a good chance the Hawks will rest him for Wednesday's game, since they're already locked into the eighth seed in the East. To upset the top-seed Pacers, Atlanta will need Antic and Elton Brand to stay healthy and give them quality minutes at center.
Apr 15 - 4:16 PM

Lou Williams scored 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting (0-for-7 from deep) with five rebounds, six assists and one steal in the Hawks' 95-93 loss to the Bobcats on Monday.

Williams is a rest-risk himself for Wednesday's game, but if the Hawks continue to trot out a depleted lineup with him in it then he'll be worth a look. Jeff Teague added 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting with three treys, four rebounds, five assists and a steal in the loss.
Apr 14 - 10:53 PM

Pero Antic (ankle) returned to action in Monday's loss, playing 19 minutes on his way to three points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal.

Antic hasn't shown owners anything to warrant a pickup, while Elton Brand (12 points, seven rebounds, two steals, three blocks, 21 minutes) continues to put up must-start numbers in his typical low-minute role.
Apr 14 - 10:51 PM

Mike Scott hit just 8-of-23 shots for 20 points, six rebounds and one three in Monday's loss.

Scott is always a good bet to touch the ball a lot when the Hawks trot out a depleted lineup. Give him a look, but don't expect much in the way of versatility or efficiency if Wednesday's lineup looks a lot like tonight.
Apr 14 - 10:50 PM

Shelvin Mack scored 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds and five assists in 28 minutes off the bench on Monday.

If the Hawks continue to rest guys en masse then Mack will be worth a look for potential like this.
Apr 14 - 10:49 PM

Cartier Martin will start against the Bobcats on Monday.

DeMarre Carroll is getting rest tonight and it's probably going to be Cartier time for much of this game. Martin logged 29 minutes in Carroll's last DNP on Mar. 29, scoring 13 points with four boards, two assists, one block, two steals and two 3-pointers. There's a good chance he'll be above 30 minutes tonight and may be even above 35. He's a option for owners in daily leagues.
Apr 14 - 3:00 PM

Lou Williams will start at shooting guard on Monday vs. the Bobcats.

The Hawks are resting Kyle Korver tonight and there should be some minutes available for Williams. Although, he did miss two games last week due to hamstring soreness and played only 19.7 minutes per game in the three following games, averaging 12.3 points, 2.3 assists and 1.3 triples in that span. He's a bit of a risky player to use tonight, but the upside is there.
Apr 14 - 2:54 PM

Mike Scott will start against the Bobcats on Monday.

Paul Millsap (rest) isn't going to play which opens up a ton of playing time for Scott. The Hawks have used him next to Millsap on numerous occasions, so he should be a focal point for their offense. In fact, when Millsap has been off the floor in the past month, Scott has a usage rate of 30.7 percent. He's a nice plug-and-play tonight.
Apr 14 - 2:41 PM

Paul Millsap (rest) will not play vs. the Bobcats on Monday, and Mike Scott will take his place in the starting lineup.

The Hawks are also resting Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll in their penultimate game of the regular season. That leaves them with a starting lineup of Jeff Teague, Lou Williams, Cartier Martin, Mike Scott and Pero Antic, but this arrangement will end abruptly unless key starters are rested again on Wednesday.

The Hawks will rest Kyle Korver on Monday with Lou Williams starting at SG in his place.

Korver is averaging 35 minutes per game in April but the Hawks are now gearing up for the playoffs and it makes sense to give their veterans some rest in a game with nothing at stake. Korver is shooting just 38.3 percent in the Hawks' past seven games so hopefully the rest will get him back on track.
Apr 14 - 11:47 AM

DeMarre Carroll will be given the night off on Monday, with Cartier Martin taking over his starting SF spot.

Atlanta is locked into the eighth seed in the East so they're giving three starters some rest, with Paul Millsap and Kyle Korver joining Carroll on the sidelines. All three should be back in action for Wednesday's season finale.
