Player News - Hawks

Date: Team: Pos:

Paul Millsap scored 15 points during a 101-88 win against the Bucks on Monday with nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one turnover.

He rested on Saturday and will likely rest again on Tuesday in Detroit. Millsap has been fantastic throughout the season, but all the DNPs are going to annoy his fantasy owners. The Hawks have four remaining road games this season and Millsap could miss some to all of them.
Mar 31 - 1:15 AM

DeMarre Carroll scored a game-high 23 points against the Bucks on Monday with eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He's playing terrific ball right now with a 24-point game coming on Friday. However, Carroll might not get another game on the road and we're expecting him to sit on Tuesday in Detroit. Kent Bazemore would benefit.
Mar 31 - 1:13 AM

Shelvin Mack did not score in 13 minutes against the Bucks on Monday with one rebound, four assists and one steal.

Dennis Schroder (toe) was hurt tonight and Jeff Teague is unlikely to play on Tuesday in a back-to-back, so we should see Mack getting major run. If you're looking for a player to stream on a light four-game night, he's one of the best options out there among players widely available in leagues.
Mar 31 - 1:10 AM

Jeff Teague had a sub-par return from an ankle sprain in 29 minutes against the Bucks on Monday, making 2-of-8 from the field for eight points with four rebounds, nine assists, two 3-pointers and five turnovers.

He is almost certainly going to rest on Tuesday, so his fantasy owners should plan for him not to play. Dennis Schroder (toe) is also out, so Shelvin Mack should see significant minutes. Teague isn't must-own player with all the games he's going to miss moving forward.
Mar 31 - 1:08 AM

Kyle Korver scored 11 points with one rebound, five assists and three 3-pointers against the Bucks on Monday.

He scored all 11 points within a 65-second span in the third quarter, which is the most potent scoring outburst since Damian Lillard scored 11 points in 39 seconds on Mar. 7. Korver is almost a lock to rest on Tuesday night and he's not a must-own player with more DNPs on the way.
Mar 31 - 12:55 AM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored 18 points against the Bucks on Monday with seven boards, two assists and two blocks in 34 minutes.

The Hawks are on the road on Tuesday, so Horford's fantasy owners should absolutely be expecting him to sit in that game. Mike Muscala would likely get a chance to build off his career-high 18 points from Saturday. Horford's fantasy owners should expect him to take a few more games off, as well.
Mar 31 - 12:52 AM

Dennis Schroder (toe) will not travel for Tuesday's game in Detroit.

Ugh. We were very excited about Schroder's week with the Hawks likely to sit Jeff Teague on Tuesday, but now we might only get six minutes out of him. As it stands right now, we'd consider Shelvin Mack as the favorite to start on Tuesday against the Pistons. He's worth a look at any depth right now.
Mar 30 - 10:21 PM

Dennis Schroder (toe) will not return on Monday and he may have dislocated his toe.

This is a really tough blow to those who picked him up. Considering he's been ruled out and didn't come out to join his teammates on the bench, he might be out for Tuesday. What's more, the Hawks are very likely to sit Jeff Teague in a road game, so Shelvin Mack would likely start on Tuesday. If you're looking for a stream option, give Mack a look at any depth.
Mar 30 - 9:46 PM

Dennis Schroder (left toe) is questionable to return on Monday.

He was likely looking at a nice chunk of minutes tonight even with Jeff Teague back. Schroder would have almost been a lock to start tomorrow in a road game, so we might see Shelvin Mack start. We'll let you know if he returns.
Mar 30 - 8:24 PM

Jeff Teague will start against the Bucks on Monday night.

He is almost a lock to sit tomorrow on the road, but it's great to see he's back for tonight. Teague is going to sit multiple games going forward, so Dennis Schroder should be owned in all leagues.
Mar 30 - 6:48 PM

Jeff Teague (ankle) and the remainder of the Hawks starters are expected to play on Monday against the Bucks.

However, "more rest" is expected on Tuesday, and that should have been obvious considering the Hawks have clinched the No. 1 seed and are on a back-to-back set. After Tuesday's road game against the Pistons, the Hawks are off until Saturday, so those relying on Atlanta for fantasy contributions while fighting for their lives may want to look elsewhere.

Dennis Schroder started on Saturday against the Hornets with 17 points, four rebounds, 11 assists and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes during a 115-100 loss

It took nine tries, but the Hawks finally lost a game with Schroder as the starter. He's been awesome with two double-doubles in both of his last two and he's headed for some extra fantasy value this week with Jeff Teague still receiving treatment on his ankle. Additionally, Schroder has put up big numbers in his last five, averaging 15.8 points, 3.2 boards, 6.8 dimes, 0.4 steals and 2.0 treys. He should be owned in all leagues.
Mar 28 - 9:26 PM

Mike Muscala had career highs with 18 points and 10 rebounds against the Hornets on Saturday, adding four assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He showed off the full arsenal tonight with a lot of mid-range, some back-to-the-basket stuff and decent defense. Muscala will likely have another start headed his way on Tuesday when the Hawks are on the road in Detroit, so give him a look at any depth in daily leagues for his back-to-back to start next week.
Mar 28 - 9:25 PM

Kent Bazemore made 7-of-14 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line for 20 points against the Hornets on Saturday with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He brought the ball up a lot tonight and was also setting up for plenty of corner treys. Bazemore's increased usage tonight is a great sign for his value going forward and he's certainly someone to think about for next week with the Hawks kicking off the week on a back-to-back on Monday and Tuesday.
Mar 28 - 9:23 PM

John Jenkins drew the start against the Hornets on Saturday with 16 points, one rebound, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He was busy on offense as the main floor spacer in halfcourt and played more minutes than any other backcourt Hawk. Jenkins is probably going to have some sneaky value in deep leagues, but he's probably about fourth on the pecking order for Hawk adds behind Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore and Mike Muscala.
