Player News - Hawks

Date: Team: Pos:

Paul Millsap stuffed the stat sheet during a 100-91 win over the Pelicans on Friday with 13 points, nine rebounds, four assists, four steals and two blocks in 37 minutes.

It's not easy to out-produce Anthony Davis, but the Sapper did just that. He bounced back nicely from an eight-point dud on Wednesday and should keep the ball rolling against the Hornets on Saturday. Millsap is putting up third-round value over the past two weeks.
Nov 28 - 11:43 PM

DeMarre Carroll scored 19 points with three rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

He hasn't skipped a beat in his four games back in the lineup, averaging 10.8 points, 3.8 boards, 1.0 steals, 0.2 blocks and 1.0 triples. Those aren't numbers that will win a week for you, but Carroll is worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 28 - 11:40 PM

Jeff Teague went off again on Friday against the Pelicans with 26 points, four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

That's five games in a row with at least 23 points, averaging 25.8 points, 2.8 boards, 6.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 triples on 53.8 percent from the field and 95.1 percent from the line in that span. This might be his high point on the season, so feel free to see if another owner will overpay. To be clear, Teague should crush his ADP.
Nov 28 - 11:36 PM

Coach Mike Budenholzer said that Shelvin Mack will see some extended minutes Friday with Thabo Sefolosha (illness) sidelined.

Mack is averaging just 4.1 points and 2.4 assists over 13.3 minutes off the bench this season, so his extended minutes won't mean much. He's a backup point guard for the Hawks, and as long as Jeff Teague is healthy, he's not going to be worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 28 - 6:08 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (illness) will not play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

With Sefolosha out, DeMarre Carroll will get all the run he can handle and he has a favorable matchup vs. New Orleans. Carroll logged 38.7 minutes sans Thabo during his last outing, scoring 14 points (two 3-pointers), to go with three rebounds an assist, and a block, and should have similar production tonight. Think about deploying him as a low-budget play in daily leagues.
Nov 28 - 1:03 PM

The Hawks will send Adreian Payne and John Jenkins to the D-League.

Jenkins had one big game this season, while Payne hasn't done much. This is just an FYI in case you notice they're missing from the Hawks bench tonight.
Nov 28 - 12:38 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (illness) is questionable to face the Pelicans on Friday.

He missed Wednesday against the Raptors and the Hawks were ripped apart on the perimeter. If Sefolosha is out, DeMarre Carroll and Kent Bazemore could play a little more.
Nov 27 - 7:54 PM

Jeff Teague had a 24-point, 12-assist game in a 126-115 loss to the Raptors on Wednesday with three rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

His defense wasn't great and the Hawks gave up a lot of open jumpers as a unit. Teague is starting to cruise on offense and has scored at least 23 in each of his last four games while making an impressive 94.4 percent of his 7.2 free throw attempts in that span. He looks like he's going to be a smart pick from his fantasy owners.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford made 11-of-16 from the field for 23 points against the Raptors on Wednesday with nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 32 minutes.

He had foul trouble on Tuesday in one of his worst games of the year, but Horford is starting to see his shots go up. It's just the second time he's been over 20 points all season, and there should be more of those games as he gets into a rhythm. Even with the low scoring of 13.3 points per game, Horford was still putting up third-round value.
Nov 27 - 12:12 AM

Paul Millsap was quiet against the Raptors on Wednesday with eight points, five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one turnover in 36 minutes.

The other four starters had nice lines, but Millsap was left out of the stat party. Even with his dud, he still holds averages in last five of 17.0 points, 7.8 boards, 3.2 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.6 triples. He's a fantasy stud.
Nov 27 - 12:09 AM

Thabo Sefolosha (illness) will not play on Wednesday.

It's the time of year when "flu-like symptoms" make their rounds throughout the NBA, and Sefolosha is the latest victim. He's playing a small role off the Hawks' bench with Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll both healthy, so his absence shouldn't cause any problems for fantasy owners.
Nov 26 - 6:30 PM

Kyle Korver had a rough night vs. the Wizards on Tuesday, going 0-of-3 from the field to finish with two points, four rebounds, one assist and four turnovers in 25 minutes.

Korver is shooting 56.7 percent on 5.5 attempts per game from beyond the arc, which will shatter a few NBA records if he keeps it up all season. Every team's scouting report focuses on never leaving Korver open on the perimeter, so he'll have a few rough games whenever the Hawks can't spring him free with screens and set plays. Stick with him through the droughts and it will pay off richly.
Nov 25 - 9:47 PM

Jeff Teague had 28 points (8-of-18 FGs, 12-of-15 FTs), three assists, two steals and one block in Tuesday's impressive road win, giving him three straight games with at least 20 points.

Teague has three single-digit scoring games this year but they shouldn't obscure his value, as he's currently the 12th best point guard to own in 9-cat leagues. Kyle Korver is shooting lights-out from beyond the arc, and guards Shelvin Mack and Dennis Schroder are also playing well in reserve roles, giving Atlanta enviable backcourt depth.
Nov 25 - 9:47 PM
Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Al Horford was limited by foul trouble during Tuesday's game, playing only 23 minutes and finishing with seven points, seven boards, two assists and one block.

He made 3-of-4 shots and it wasn't a total bust for fantasy owners, who should take his rare foul-plagued dud in stride. He'd scored double-digit points in four straight games prior to Tuesday and should begin a new streak vs. Toronto on Wednesday.
Nov 25 - 9:46 PM

Mike Scott poured in 17 points in 22 minutes on Tuesday, making 5-of-10 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws in a road win vs. the Wizards.

Scott hit two 3-pointers and added seven rebounds, one assist, and even blocked a shot for the first time this season. While this performance will delight owners lucky enough to have started him, his 15-minute role off the bench isn't yielding value outside of 20-team leagues.
