Player News - Hawks

Date: Team: Pos:

Dennis Schroder scored a team-high 18 points during a 113-90 win over the Bulls on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 18 minutes.

This actually wasn't a garbage-time special with just three points and no assists coming in the fourth quarter -- he also didn't play next to Jeff Teague tonight. Considering the amount of rumors on Teague, it makes sense to stash Schroder through the trade deadline in almost all leagues.
Feb 10 - 11:28 PM

Kyle Korver scored 10 points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers against the Bulls on Wednesday.

He is definitely out of his horrible slump from last month and has put up eighth-round value in his last 10. The days of Korver being a top-50 player seem unlikely, but he's still an OK hold in standard leagues. He also moved into eighth place for all-time 3-pointers.
Feb 10 - 11:24 PM

Jeff Teague scored 17 points with five rebounds, eight assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Bulls on Wednesday.

The rumors are starting to pick up for Teague, but the Hawks may opt to keep him. If he is dealt, it's more likely he will lose value than gain it, but the rumors aren't heavy enough to deal him unless it's for fair value. He's played great lately and could still be an early-round player going forward now that he snapped out of his slump.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

A deal sending Al Horford to the Boston Celtics is reportedly a "legitimate possibility" according to Chris Mannix of Yahoo! Sports.

"I think Boston -- Al Horford is a legitimate possibility for the Celtics," Mannix said. "I think that is the guy, one of the guys across the league that Danny Ainge is the most excited about." Mannix added that while Horford will cost a lot of money to re-sign as a free agent, the Celtics will be willing to foot the bill. Horford does make sense in Boston as Ainge is reportedly looking for a low-post scorer at the deadline, but it's difficult to predict his value in Boston without knowing the moving pieces.

The Hawks and Magic have reportedly discussed a potential deal involving Victor Oladipo and Jeff Teague.

Out of the players being mentioned in potential trades out of Atlanta, Teague's name has come up the most, so he seems the most likely guy to be dealt at the deadline if the Hawks decide to make a move. Orlando wouldn't be the worst landing spot for Teague, but it would be a significant blow to Elfrid Payton's value. Oladipo wouldn't be the main man in Atlanta, so his value could take a slight hit with the Hawks. Dennis Schroder needs to be stashed in most leagues.

The Pacers have reportedly reached out to the Hawks regarding a potential Jeff Teague, George Hill trade.

Teague's value could take a hit in Indiana as he'd be fighting for touches with Paul George and Monta Ellis on offense, so this wouldn't be an ideal landing spot for Jeff. The trade rumors have been swirling around Atlanta's Big Three, and it seems likely that at least one of the core players for the Hawks is dealt at the deadline. The Magic, Jazz and Knicks have also expressed interest in Teague, so Dennis Schroder needs to be stashed in most leagues at this point.

Tiago Splitter (hip) is reportedly contemplating surgery.

Splitter will be held out through the All-Star break, and whatever the course of treatment he decides, Tiago is set to spend an extended amount of time on the sidelines. Mike Scott and Mike Muscala will pick up some extra minutes in his absence, but none of these guys can be considered viable options in standard leagues.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

The Hawks are reportedly considering trading away their core players of Al Horford, Paul Millsap and Jeff Teague at the trade deadline.

The Hawks haven't been able to recapture the magic from last year's 60-win season, and it's clear that while they're a playoff team, they are no championship contender. Horford is in a contract year, and Atlanta may not be willing to sign him to a max-deal this offseason. The Magic, Celtics and Nuggets have reportedly expressed interest in acquiring Horford, and Atlanta is also listening to offers on Teague and Millsap.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford scored a team-high 27 points during a 117-110 overtime loss to the Magic on Monday, adding six rebounds, three assists, two blocks, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

He was 12-of-18 from the field and hit both free throws for an eight-category line. Horford was putting up an underwhelming February before this gem, averaging 12.3 points, 5.8 boards, 4.5 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 treys. He's been a top-20 player this year and that should continue.
Feb 9 - 12:09 AM

Jeff Teague scored 21 points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Magic on Monday.

It's probably safe to say Teague is back. In his last five, the 2014-15 All-Star averaged 20.6 points, 3.4 assists, 5.0 blocks, 1.4 steals and 2.6 treys on 53.5 percent from the field. Teague has third-round value in that span and looks to be out of his season-long slump.
Feb 9 - 12:06 AM

Tiago Splitter (hip) is getting a second opinion on his right hip.

He is out through the break and he could be out for multiple weeks. Splitter can be left on the wire in just about all leagues. There will be more minutes for Mike Scott and Mike Muscala.
Feb 8 - 4:11 PM

Kyle Korver said he's finally feeling healthy now.

"I feel like things have healed, and I'm back and whole," Korver said. "There was, I felt like I missed so many shots for a while, and I think mentally, that does throw you a little bit." Korver hasn't been very good this season and is just outside of the top-150 rankings for his last 12 games. Hopefully, he can be better going forward.

Hawks assign C Walter Tavares to the D-League.

Tavares doesn't have a role with the Hawks despite Tiago Splitter's hip injury, an indication of "Edy's" current fantasy appeal.
Feb 8 - 11:56 AM

Mike Muscala earned praise from Mike Budenholzer for his readiness to step into the rotation.

"The fact that he hadn’t played much, to step in and be ready to play pretty good is a statement to how he works," Budenholzer said. "I’m pleased with how he kept himself ready. And his activity defensively, his length at the rim and his verticality at the rim has been really good. I think the pace with which (he has played), he has gotten some easy baskets in transition and beat people down the court. He’s moving the ball and playing within what we do. He’s really stepped in and done well after not playing much for a good month or so." Despite "feeling comfortable" in Tiago Splitter's (hip) absence, Muscala isn't a fantasy option.
Feb 8 - 9:42 AM

Dennis Schroder only managed to play 13 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Magic, hitting 1-of-7 shots on his way to six points, four boards, one assist, one 3-pointer and two turnovers.

Schroder did require five stitches to close a chin laceration after the game, but it's unlikely that he's forced to miss any time with a cut chin. Schroder's playing time has been on a downward trend over the past week, and he's ranking well outside the top-150 during that span with averages of 10.3 points and 3.3 assists on 40.6 percent shooting. He's worth stashing to see if Jeff Teague gets dealt at the deadline, but if no trade it made, he won't be a great guy to hold onto in standard formats.
