Tim Hardaway Jr. hit 6-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in Tuesday's embarrassing 128-84 loss at Toronto on Saturday.

Hardaway has quietly scored in double figures in four straight games and with Kyle Korver struggling as badly as any time in his career, Hardaway is a candidate to replace the struggling shooting guard in the starting lineup. The reeling Hawks have lost nine of their last 10 games and have been blown out by a combined 80 points in their last two games. Something's got to give for coach Bud in the ATL, and bringing Korver off the bench and starting THJ might be the easiest move for him to make. If THJ becomes the starter at some point, he might be worth stashing. But if you've been holding Korver in a deep league and need to make a move for a warm body, picking up THJ might be worth a flier until we see what happens here.

Kyle Korver hit just 3-of-7 shots and went 0-for-3 from downtown for six points, one assist and two steals in Saturday's humiliating 128-84 loss to the Raptors.

While the Hawks, losers of nine of their last 10 games, have many problems right now, their biggest may be the fact that their starting shooting guard and 3-point specialist is averaging 0.5 3-pointers and 4.8 points over his last four games, and has hit just 10-of-33 shots over his last five. Korver hasn't really looked right since the first half of the 2014-15 season, and even though he predicted one of the best years of his career this time around, he's having one of his worst seasons in a long time. He's not even worth owning right now, unless you're desperate for threes and think he can get this thing turned around.
Dec 3 - 11:09 PM

Kent Bazemore hit just 3-of-12 shots for eight points, two rebounds and two assists in Saturday's brutal 128-84 loss to the Hawks.

You know the deal with Baze this season. You either get the good version or the bad version from night to night, as he's been wildly inconsistent. And unfortunately, the Hawks got Bad Baze tonight. Speaking of the Hawks, they are in a free fall, losing eight of their last nine games and following up their three-game losing streak with a six-game losing streak. The Hawks looked like one of the Top 3 teams in East after an 11-2 start, but now look like one of the early-season's most overrated teams.
Dec 3 - 11:01 PM

Mike Muscala started in Saturday's ugly loss to the Raptors but hit just 3-of-7 shots for seven points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

He filled up the stat sheet, but with tiny numbers. Paul Millsap should be back momentarily from his hip injury, so Muskie doesn't really deserve too much of a look in fantasy leagues right now.
Dec 3 - 10:51 PM

Thabo Sefolosha will come off the bench against the Raptors on Saturday.

It was somewhat obvious Thabo would come off the bench after the rough time on Friday. Sefolosha is really just a steals specialist in most formats.
Dec 3 - 6:24 PM

DeAndre Bembry is active against the Raptors on Friday.

He's been lighting up the D-League and scored 35 points on Thursday. Bembry likely won't be in the rotation tonight.
Dec 3 - 6:15 PM

Dennis Schroder, Kyle Korver, Kent Bazemore, Mike Muscala and Dwight Howard will start against the Raptors on Saturday.

Coach Mike Budenholzer benched his starters to start the second half on Friday due to their woeful -51.3 net rating in the loss. Muscala is the only change for Thabo Sefolosha, which makes sense against the Raptors. Korver is only a borderline hold in fantasy and certainly could use a good game tonight.
Dec 3 - 6:14 PM

Mike Muscala is listed as the starter at power forward against the Raptors on Saturday.

In case you missed it, Paul Millsap (hip) is out again tonight. After the Hawks were crushed in the first half on Friday with Thabo Sefolosha at the four, Muscala is the favorite to start. He was awful with no points in his last start on Wednesday, but he should have a great chance to perform tonight.
Dec 3 - 5:30 PM

Mike Scott (knee) played 12 minutes on Friday vs. the Pistons, scoring two points with three rebounds and three assists.

The Hawks are easing him back into action and the Hawks may rest him on Saturday vs. the Raptors, but we'll take him off the injury report for now. He's not a fantasy pickup with Mike Muscala having a career year.
Dec 3 - 1:18 AM

Taurean Prince shot 1-of-6 from the field in Friday's loss to the Pistons, scoring five points with six rebounds, one assist and one triple in 17 minutes.

The rookie has shown flashes this season and he also started the second half of Friday's blowout, but he might have ruined his chances of starting with this dud. Just keep an eye on him in case coach Mike Budenholzer surprises up and calls the rookie's name for Saturday's game vs. Toronto.
Dec 3 - 1:08 AM

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 11 points with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 27 minutes off the bench on Friday vs. the Pistons.

He missed all six of his triples, but he started the second half and he's certainly a candidate to start over the struggling Kyle Korver on Saturday vs. the Raptors -- coach Mike Budenholzer said after the game that he will "look at everything." THJ is just a speculative pickup in deeper formats for now and it's worth noting that he was coming off a 21-point effort against the Suns.
Dec 3 - 1:02 AM

Mike Muscala started the second half of Friday's game vs. the Pistons, finishing with 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting with two steals, one assist and one triple in 24 minutes.

Paul Millsap (hip) was out and will miss at least one more game, but the Hawks started a small-ball lineup with Thabo Sefolosha at the four. That obviously didn't work, so Muscala is a candidate to start on Saturday vs. the Raptors which puts him on the radar in deeper formats and in DFS.
Dec 3 - 12:58 AM

Malcolm Delaney started the second half of Friday's game vs. the Pistons, scoring eight points on 2-of-4 shooting with three assists, one rebound and two turnovers in 19 minutes.

He started in place of Dennis Schroder, but the entire starting lineup was benched at half due to the blowout. Normally we wouldn't blink an eye at this, but it's worth noting that coach Mike Budenholzer threatened to make lineup changes for Saturday's game vs. Toronto. We wouldn't expect Delaney to start over Schroder, but he's been making a case for a larger role all year. Keep an eye on him.
Dec 3 - 12:48 AM

Thabo Sefolosha started on Friday vs. the Pistons, but only played 17 minutes and was benched at halftime, finishing with five points, two rebounds, one steal and one triple.

He hit 2-of-5 shots from the field and took an early seat with the game quickly getting out of hand. Paul Millsap (hip) will miss at least one more game, so maybe Sefolosha can redeem himself on Saturday vs. the Raptors. For what it's worth, coach Mike Budenholzer hasn't decided who will start on Saturday. Sefolosha is just a steals specialist at this point.
Dec 3 - 12:41 AM

Dennis Schroder scored 17 points with 11 assists, two rebounds and one triple in 25 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

He looked much better on paper than in real life, as the Hawks were roasted by 36 points and Schroder and the rest of the starters were benched at half. Schroder has put together three encouraging stat lines in a row with averages of 24.0 points, 8.7 assists and 1.3 triples in that span, but it's going to be interesting to see what happens to his (and the rest of the starters) role on Saturday vs. the Raptors with his head coach contemplating lineup changes. Our guess is that Schroder's job is safe.
