Player News - Hawks

Date: Team: Pos:

Kyle Korver made his 49th consecutive free throw for a Hawks record on Saturday, finishing with 22 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes during a 104-97 win.

It might sound like hyperbole, but Korver is one of the best shooters in NBA history. He already has the record for most consecutive games with a trey and he's about halfway for the NBA record for consecutive makes at the line. Cool streaks aside, he's posting early round fantasy value.
Dec 20 - 10:54 PM

Dennis Schroder slowed down against the Rockets on Saturday with eight points, six rebounds, six assists and four turnovers in 30 minutes.

He looked great in his first start on Wednesday, but Patrick Beverley will make anyone look a lot worse. Schroder should have another game as the start and would likely have success against Rajon Rondo. He's worth a look for short-term value.
Dec 20 - 10:49 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) will not play in Saturday's game against the Rockets, meaning Dennis Schroder will draw another start.

Teague was considered doubtful heading into this game, so owners should have seen this coming. Teague should be considered day-to-day moving forward, and we will update his status as soon as we know more. Dennis Schroder will draw another start on Saturday, but he will unfortunately get the Patrick Beverley treatment. Shelvin Mack will also see a boost off of the bench, and is coming off a career-high 24 points on Wednesday.

Jeff Teague (hamstring) is still listed as doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Rockets.

Even if he was active, he would have gotten the Patrick Beverley treatment so owners can go ahead and bench him. Consider him day-to-day for now and expect Dennis Schroder to draw another start. Shelvin Mack will also see some extra run as well, and just scored a career-high 24 points on Wednesday. Both players are worth a look in deeper leagues for owners in need of short-term value.

Mike Muscala was recalled from the NBA D-League on Saturday, and is expected to be available against the Rockets.

He has been playing well in the D-League, but he is still a couple of injuries away from being in the rotation in Atlanta. You can leave him on the wire with confidence.
Dec 20 - 11:21 AM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) is doubtful to play on Saturday against the Rockets.

It's clear the Hawks are not going to rush him back, which makes sense considering how many players have aggravated their hamstring strains this season -- David Lee and Patrick Beverley, for example. His fantasy owners should just bench him and expect him back next week. Dennis Schroder gets a date with Patrick Beverley while Shelvin Mack will also get some run.
Dec 19 - 3:23 PM

Mike Muscala has been sent down for a D-League stint.

Muscala has trouble getting off the bench when the Hawks have a healthy roster, so he'll get some experience playing in the D-League. He's averaging just 4.9 points and 2.4 rebounds over 10 minutes of action this season, and belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
Dec 19 - 10:08 AM

Shelvin Mack came off the bench and hit 7-of-8 shots, 6-of-6 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws to help the Hawks crush the Cavaliers 127-98 in Cleveland on Wednesday.

He finished with a career-high 24 points, two rebounds and three assists, taking over the backup point guard duties behind starter Dennis Schroder with Jeff Teague sidelined with a hamstring injury. Mack went on a second-quarter tear, scoring 17 points on 5-of-5 shooting from downtown and the Hawks never looked back in the Cavs' most lopsided loss of the season. If Teague is going to miss more time, Mack could continue to be worth a look. But once he's back on the court it should be Schroder getting the back up minutes, while Mack will watch from the bench. Mack came in averaging just 3.8 points per game on the season.
Dec 17 - 9:59 PM

Mike Scott relieved Paul Millsap early on Wednesday when Millsap ran into foul trouble and hit 5-of-7 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, four rebounds and a steal in 25 minutes.

Scott has show signs of breaking out all season, but as long as Millsap and Al Horford are healthy, it's probably not going to happen. Just keep an eye on him.
Dec 17 - 9:53 PM

Kyle Korver hit just 1-of-3 shots (a 3-pointer) for four points, five rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in Wednesday's blowout win over the Hawks.

The Hawks simply didn't need much from Korver tonight with Shelvin Mack going off from the bench. Korver is fine, but just had an off night in an easy win. He should bounce back in the next one.
Dec 17 - 9:52 PM

Dennis Schroder started in place of Jeff Teague (hamstring) and hit 4-of-6 shots for 10 points, two rebounds and 10 assists in 22 minutes of Wednesday's surprisingly easy win over the Cavaliers.

Schroder and reserve Shelvin Mack dominated Kyrie Irving and the Cavs tonight for a 127-98 blowout win. Schroder came through if you used him with Teague out, but Mack was even better with 24 points on a great shooting night. It was hard to see this type of blowout coming in Cleveland, but the Hawks are playing very well as a team and didn't even miss Teague tonight. If he misses any more games, look for Schroder to start and share minutes with Mack again.
Dec 17 - 9:50 PM

Dennis Schroder will draw the start in place of Jeff Teague (hamstring) on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers.

Teague could miss some additional time, so Schroder makes a lot of sense as a speculative add in deeper leagues. The young point guard from Germany has been fantastic this season and will get an extended look with the first unit on Wednesday. He does have a tough matchup against Kyrie Irving, but Schroder should be up to the task and is worth a look in almost all leagues for short-term value.
Dec 17 - 6:28 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) will not play on Wednesday night against the Cavs.

He could miss additional time with the Hawks in the playoff hunt and all the hamstring aggravations this season. While Teague is out, Dennis Schroder is going to be a lot of fun to watch while Shelvin Mack also gets some extra playing time. Schroder is a very attractive daily play tonight and is worth a look for short-term value.
Dec 17 - 5:42 PM

Coach Mike Budenholzer said on Wednesday that the Hawks will "monitor [Jeff Teague] (hamstring, doubtful) over the next day or so and hope for the best."

It sounds like he's out for tonight against the Cavs, but the Hawks are off until Saturday following tonight. Dennis Schroder is the favorite to pick up value, and his usage rate of 25.5 to go with a 32.4 assist percentage while he's out there bode very well for his outlook tonight. Shelvin Mack will also see a boost.
Dec 17 - 2:20 PM

Jeff Teague (hamstring) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.

Teague is said to be dealing with a left hamstring strain, and reportedly suffered the injury in Monday's game vs. the Bulls. Owners will want to check back prior to tip-off to confirm this news, but it appears that Dennis Schroder will likely get the nod in the starting lineup Wednesday. Owners in deeper leagues should pick up Schroder as a speculative add for short-term value, and should also give him a look as a sneaky daily plug-and-play.
