Date: Team: Pos:

Paul Millsap scored 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting (including four threes) with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in the Hawks' 95-88 win over the Magic on Friday.

Not only are the Hawks fun to watch but Mike Budenholzer is all about a nice, tight fantasy rotation. DeMarre Carroll added 15 points, three treys, eight boards, two assists and three steals, Al Horford went for 17 and 13 with four assists and two steals, Jeff Teague went for 17 and seven, and Kyle Korver hit 2-of-5 shots (all threes) for eight points, three boards, one steal and two blocks in the win.

Jeff Teague hit just 3-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, three rebounds, four assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Mavs.

Teague didn't have it tonight and Dennis Schroder picked up his slack. Look for Teague to get it going again on Friday against the Magic. He came in dealing with an illness, but he hasn't looked like himself for a couple weeks now, averaging just 11.2 points and 4.2 assists over his last five games.
Feb 25 - 11:03 PM

Kyle Korver hit 6-of-12 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, six rebounds, three assists and two blocks on Wednesday.

Korver was the best starter on the floor tonight for Atlanta and remains one of the deadliest shooters in the league. And when he's blocking shots and rebounding, he's even more fun to own.
Feb 25 - 11:01 PM

Dennis Schroder came off the bench to hit 7-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers for 17 points and four assists in Wednesday's comeback win over the Hawks.

He was named the player of the game by the Hawks broadcast crew, as he came through on a night when Jeff Teague couldn't get it going. There's little doubt that Schroder's a good player, but as long as he's stuck behind Teague, he's not going to be consistent enough to use in fantasy.

Jeff Teague (illness) is expected to play on Wednesday, according to coach Mike Budenholzer.

The Hawks' game vs. the Mavericks was threatened by icy conditions but it will be played as scheduled, and it sounds like Teague will be in the starting lineup. We'll let you know if anything changes prior to tip-off.

Al Horford - F/C - Hawks

Wednesday's Mavs at Hawks game "is happening" despite the bad weather, according to the Hawks.

After a lot of uncertainty, we finally have a solid update. Fantasy owners can go ahead and insert their Hawks and Mavericks back in their lineups.
Feb 25 - 4:02 PM

The Hawks and Mavs are still scheduled to play on Wednesday.

Contrary to what Shelvin Mack just said, the Hawks and Mavericks will play as of right now. We'll still look for another official update from the teams soon.
Feb 25 - 3:47 PM

Shelvin Mack said there is "no game" tonight for the Hawks and Mavericks.

He's not the usual suspect to drop a scoop bomb on Twitter, so we'll wait for an official word from the NBA. For now, it sounds like there will be no game, so fantasy owners need to get all of their Hawks and Mavs out of their lineup. This has been Mack's biggest fantasy impact in the past month, but he'll have value if Jeff Teague misses time.
Feb 25 - 3:36 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (calf) is progressing well and remains on track to return in mid-March.

The Hawks have allowed three more points per game (99.0) in their last ten games without Sefolosha, so they will be thrilled to have him back on the court soon. His return would likely reduce Kent Bazemore's role off the bench, but his limited offensive ability will keep him off the fantasy radar in most leagues. With season averages of 5.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steal per game, Sefolosha belongs on the wire.
Feb 25 - 9:45 AM

Jeff Teague (illness) was not present at Tuesday's practice.

Teague has a day to recover before the Hawks face the Mavericks on Wednesday, but we'll consider him questionable until we hear more. If Teague is unable to suit up, Dennis Schroder would likely get the start in his absence and would make for a solid plug-and play option against the Mavs.
Feb 24 - 12:37 PM

Paul Millsap blew up for 23 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in Sunday's road win vs. the Bucks.

He made 10-of-20 field goals including one 3-pointer and his efforts helped the Hawks snap a rare two-game losing streak. Millsap has maintained top-20 value all season, which is exactly where fantasy owners hoped he'd be on draft day.
Feb 22 - 6:12 PM

Kyle Korver made four 3-pointers to finish Sunday's victory with 12 points, two rebounds, three assists and one steal.

He shot just 4-of-11 from the field and didn't attempt any free throws, but his owners won't gripe when he's knocking down triples and chipping in a few assists and steals. Tonight's game bumped him ahead of Stephen Curry for the league lead in 3-pointers made (167) and his 51.1 percent shooting beyond the arc is unparalleled.
Feb 22 - 6:11 PM

Dennis Schroder played 26 minutes off the Hawks' bench on Sunday, scoring 12 points with one 3-pointer, two rebounds and nine assists.

Schroder shot 3-of-10 from the field with five turnovers, but went 5-of-5 at the FT line and the nine dimes just missed his previous season-high. The 21-year-old has quietly blossomed as the Hawks' primary backup PG this season, but his fantasy appeal is limited while Jeff Teague is healthy.
Feb 22 - 6:10 PM

The Hawks used a big fourth quarter to defeat the Bucks on Sunday, with Jeff Teague contributing 10 points, one rebound, two assists, four steals and one block in the win.

He also turned the ball over four times in 28 minutes and fantasy owners should stay patient despite his recent mini-slump. Over the past five games he's averaging only 11.4 points, 0.6 threes, 1.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists, well below his season numbers, but it's only a matter of time before he bounces back.
Feb 22 - 6:10 PM

DeMarre Carroll scored four points on 2-of-4 shooting with five rebounds, two assists, three steals and three blocks in the Hawks' 105-80 home loss to the Raptors on Friday.

Strangely, this might have been the best standard league line of the night for the Hawks, who didn't see a starter play more than 29 minutes. Paul Millsap went for 11 and nine with a steal and block, Al Horford scored seven points with 12 boards, four assists, a steal and a three, and Kyle Korver hit 3-of-13 shots for 11 points, four rebounds, one block and two threes in the loss.
