Shelvin Mack did not score with five rebounds and one assist in 11 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday. He checked in with 10:34 left in the fourth with the score at 103-67, so he was not in the rotation. Mack moves into the background while D.J. Augustin and Elfrid Payton are healthy.
Shelvin Mack returned to the bench on Monday vs. the Warriors, scoring four points with six assists and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes. Elfrid Payton was back in action, but he's being brought along slowly due to soreness in his hamstring. Mack will eventually be demoted back to third-string PG when D.J. Augustin (hamstring) returns, so his owners should find a player with a better long-term outlook.
Mack will return to the bench for Monday's game against the Warriors. With point guard Elfrid Payton back from his one-game absence Monday, Mack will return to his role as the primary backup. Mack still didn't carry much fantasy value as a starter, so even with a dosage likely surpassing 20 minutes, he's not a serviceable DFS play moving forward.
Shelvin Mack scored seven points in a start at point guard with one rebound, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday. While he does start at point guard, Mack is basically a shooting guard and doesn't really handle the ball much. Elfrid Payton (hamstring) is fully expected to be ready for Monday, so put Mack back on the wire.
Mack will start during Saturday's game against the Nuggets, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports. With Elfrid Payton (rest/hamstring) sidelined, Mack will draw the start. Once Payton returns, however, he'll go back to a bench role, making him a risky fantasy option.
Shelvin Mack will start against the Nuggets on Saturday. He hasn't been very good as a starter and Jonathon Simmons has clearly outplayed him when the Magic didn't have Elfrid Payton (hamstring) like tonight. Mack is still a decent stream, but we like Simmons a lot in this matchup.
Shelvin Mack slid to the bench on Sunday, where he posted eight points, three rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes.
Mack started on Friday with both Elfrid Payton and D.J. Augustin nursing hamstring injuries, but he shot just 1-of-8 and was benched in favor of Jonathon Simmons' defense tonight. Frank Vogel made it sound like Elfrid Payton (hamstring) will play on Wednesday, so there's no reason to pick up Mack in any league.
Shelvin Mack will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Celtics.
Mack didn't play all that well in a start against the Bulls on Friday, so Jonathan Simmons will have his time to shine in the starting five. Still, Mack's minutes should be in the mid-20s tonight as the only true point guard on the roster, so he could be someone to consider as a low-end streamer for those seeking to pick up some assists.
